New To The 501St Legion

Recommended Posts

Hello all. My Name is Mark Coughran. I was introduced to your group at the Wizard World Comic Con in Nashville this past October. I would Love to be a part of the costuming and charity events. I am a big Star Wars fan and I have some crazy costume ideas like a Rancor and Jabba the Hutt. But i would like to start more basic with something tried and true so where do I find good plans for an AT-AT driver? I am assuming that you folks are the go-to authority when it comes to making such costumes. Anyhow I am very excited to make a costume and participate whenever possible with you guys! Thanks for any help you have in advance.

Hi Mark, and welcome! AT-AT drivers are awesome - I would love to do one as well some time... for reference and help, you're looking for the Armored Cavalry Detachment. You can find their forums here: http://www.armoredcavalry.net/ - that's going to be your best source for info on a build. What part of the area are you from? Come out to an event sometime and get to know the rest of us!

Take care!

Hey Mark, welcome to the forums... best place to start is http://www.501st.com/index.php and check out the Costume Reference Library:

http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming:CRL

There you will find the requirements and details for all the approved costumes in the Legion, broken down by detachment. AT-AT drivers are in the Armored Cavalry Detachment: http://www.501st.com/databank/Costuming:ACD_CRL

Do lots of reading there, then sign up for the detachment forums and start reading there. Ask LOTS of questions. Check out our upcoming events on this forum and come out to meet folks. Lots of great people in this group.

Dream big man. The guys up in Boston have a killer Jabba puppet/suit. I would love to see something like that here. Welcome aboard.
