New to Nashville

Recommended Posts


My name is John and I’m a retired Special Effects Artist and I just relocated from Maryland to Nashville, TN.   In 2001 I joined the 501st, as TK-2747, while I lived / worked in New Zealand.  Unfortunately, I was unable to complete a trooper costume and participate in any of the 501st activities.  Now that I am established in Nashville and semi-retired from my 2nd career, I want to restart my 501st application and being participating in local activities.


I have always been a “creatures” guy, but I love the AT-AT Driver / Tie Pilot helmets as well as the ROTJ Vader costume.   I have years of costuming, model making, sculpting, molding and casting experience.   I am not opposed to making one of the cannon creatures from scratch.   I am also looking for a ESB Vader costume for an art project / display in my house.


If possible, I would like to meet up with some of experienced representatives and discuss my costuming options.  Thanks and I look forward to meeting up and working with you all in the near future.
