Hi there,

We have many jedi in Canadian Base, including Rey. Please take a look at the Jedi boards for more info on putting together a Rey or jedi costume.

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=21

There are a few events in your area and west end GTA. I enjoyed attending GenreCon in Guelph last year.

Thanks. I have been using all the resources for making it.
Are there trooping events that are not conventions?
Since thereís many Jedi, does this make it more difficult to participate?

There are definitely more events in the GTHA, but in western Ontario we do get some troops too beyond the conventions (I'm in London, FYI). Library events, parades, sporting events, etc. It's usually not an issue to have more than one of the same face character represented. Some members have more than one costume, and are happy to switch.

Once you are a full member, you will have access to the events section of the forum.

Good luck with your build.

Yes. As "Blue Leader Canada" has mentioned we troop a variety of events. We always welcome more people to participate, sometimes there are specific character requests but we work with our members in each case.

If you have questions regarding your costume please feel free to reach out. Our facebook group, Rebel Recruits Canadian Base, may be a good place to share your progress and get some feedback.

Thank you so much for the info. Iím very excited! Being in the Guelph area I can drive 2 hours in either direction. So London to the east side of Toronto is great for me.
I actually have a RL member Rey mentor. And Iím following the costume instructions very carefully. Iím also part of the Rey Cosplay Community. Things are coming along!

Hi - I'm from Dundas, which is pretty near you. Apart from the GTA and London areas, there are also events in the Hamilton and Niagara area - and even closer to you.

As Darren mentioned, once approved you'll have access to the forum where these are posted.

As for duplicates, we do have a few members who do Rey, but it's rarely a problem as there are more events than there are Reys (and sometimes events can handle multiples).

Hope to see you trooping soon!
