    Well, all I can say is, if you missed the Celebration...you missed some AWESOME things!

    We had around 200 501st members marching around the Con and doing Door Security.

    Well, I guess since this is my thread, I won't piss off anyone if I highjack it :p

    To join the 501st, you need to own a professional quality looking Imperial costume- Stormtrooper, Scout Trooper, Snowtrooper, TIE Pilot, Royal Guard, Imperial Officer, Darth Vader, and we also allow Bounty Hunters.

    Once you have your costume, 2 pictures need to be sent in along with your application, one full body shot and another with helmet off. You also need to send a few ID numbers you wish to have, many numbers are taken, we hit the 1,000 member mark recently :D

    Considering recent problems with the Studios, the best thing to do to find armor is to hang out with your local Garrison for a few events and help out. We're cautious about giving up our sources and need to trust our members.

    Hope this info helps.

    I am planning to get stormtrooper armor sometime before the end of this year. I guess that gives me a while to think about what number I want to have.
