An Introduction


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am John, a maker and builder in Florida.

 

I have love this universe for as long as I can remember, and at he young age of 44 I am venturing into the craft that is making and building.  As Star Wars has always been a part of my life, it felt only natural to immerse myself in the pieces, armor, sabers, and blasters, etc. that I have seen on the screen but have never been able to own myself.

 

I have long admired what the 501st does, and so to be a part, even in a small way, is something I aspire to do.

Hey, John!  Welcome to the World of White!  

 

What part of Florida do you live in?  We have five Squads covering all of the Florida Garrison and plenty of Stormtroopers in each.

 

Also, which costume are you interested in?

I am outside of Orlando.

 

I haven't picked out one for myself at present.  I have too many ideas...LOL.

You are in Makaze Squad territory, John, (my old Squad).  When you get closer, I will put you in touch with a good friend there who lives in Clermont.  He is one of our Imperial Attaches and will be happy to help you on a local level.

He beat me to it.  Makaze Squad is an outstanding group of Troopers!

 

I'm in the Tampa Bay Squad and we often troop together. In fact, my second TK troop was with justjoseph63 for the Clermont Christmas Parade. I have plenty of close friends in Makaze.

 

Both our squads have a regular Armor Party to get together to build costumes, to help each other out, or just to talk.  Let us know what you decide and we can help get you on the right track!

I remember that troop well, Jeff!  We teamed up to escort Lord Vader.  Do you still have that sharp looking E-11?  :D

I was at the Clermont Christmas Parade!  We go there EVERY year!

Awesome!  It is one of the 501st's favorite troops.  We have so many troopers attend and we even get to add festive additions to our armor

 

Hopefully we can get to help you on your path to the 501st and you can join us!
