  1. Anybody in the Tri-Cities

    Thanks guys. Good to know I'm not alone in the area. I was really wanting to start small and make a Scanning Crew uniform. I, like most people, am having a hard time finding the right set of coveralls. My girlfriend can sew and I was wondering if there was a pattern out there that I could get her to follow. It would be GREAT if there were a thread with links to find some of the basic items we need to get started. All I could find was the tread telling me where NOT to buy them. This is why I gave up on it the first go around. I would also like to try and make as many items as I can on my own. I would love to make my own belt boxes and actually have them able to store things in them. I also noticed, and now have read, that the Imperial arm patch in ANH is printed on vinyl. Any ideas on how I can get my hands on those?
  2. Looking for people in the Tri-Cities area to connect with to discuss building a costume and finally becoming an approved member. Seems like most everyone here is 2+hrs. away from me. And there are never any events held around me that I have known the 501st to attend. Wondering if it would be better to join Garrison Tyrannus. I live in Bristol, TN. and Bristol, VA. is one mile away from me. But, then again the closest detachment is in Roanoke, 2hrs away as well. Maybe there should be a Tri-Cities detachment for people from both sides of the State Street.

    Success!! It was that my photo was to large, dimensionally speaking. Resolution was within limits but not the dimensions. Thank you Chris Lee

    Well it seems the background changed overnight, but the profile is still choosing to be difficult.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. Yes I will most definitely be hitting up the 501st room. I went to it at Celebration V and almost geeked out and made an ass of myself. Then again, I probably did anyway. Sgt.Dark; your a riot. I know I'm going to enjoy seeing future comments from you. Dune; I am having a few problems already. I put a post on here about it last night. Cannot seem to get my profile pic to work. And I put up a background that I didn't like and wanted to change it and no succcess.
  10. Trouble w/ pics

    Hmm, Well I wonder what size it needs to be? Right now the profile pic I have is 560x480. How much smaller would I have to make it? And as for the background pick it says the size limit is "unlimited" Today is a new day. I will give it a new shot. Thank you for your comments.

    The message I get when trying to set my profile pic is "Failed to set a new Photo"
  12. Trouble w/ pics

    For some reason I am unable to upload a profile pic. Is it because I am a new member? Could my image be too large? I tried resizing it but it still will not upload. Also, I chose a pic for my background and did not like the way it looked. I am now unable to change it to a different image. Could someone walk me throu the correct process of getting the pics I want up?
  13. Hello All, My real name is Jason Hutchinson, please call me Hutch or my profile name. I'm in Bristol, TN., but I grew up in Bristol, VA. Not sure how I first learned about the 501st, but I met some of the members when I wen to Celebration V. I have joined because I grew up watching Star Wars and have always thought the Empire was the coolest. Have not had the chance to make a uniform but would like to start small, like as Scanning Crew etc. Hopefully working my way up to Scout Trooper ,TIE Fighter or Imperial Gunner. I am getting married THIS Sat and we are going to the Celebration on our Honeymoon. Having a bit of trouble getting my profile squared away. Any advice will be much apprecitated.
