Hi everyone!

I'm new around here! I'm originally from California, but I've lived in Madison, WI for the last 8 years.

I am in the planning (obsessing) phase of a Twi'Lek costume. I am currently torn between going for Aayla Secura or a generic Jedi.

I am pretty modest wardrobe-wise and I'm ALWAYS cold, so Aayla is pretty adventurous for me with that bare midriff. But let's be real, my husband confessed that he had a bit of a thing for Aayla as a teenager, so I kind of want to do it just to see his reaction.

On the other hand, I am intrigued by all the choices I could make as a generic Jedi. I can pick my own lekku/body color, color choices for tunics/tabards/obi, light sabers, etc. There are LOTS of Aaylas, but I can be totally unique as a generic Jedi and I kind of dig that.

As far as Star Wars goes, I have been obsessed with Stormtroopers since I was young. I plan to start a Legacy Stormtrooper build at the end of the year and eventually join the 501st.


PS: Where do I find out about events? I'd love to come out and meet you wonderful people sometime! I'm definitely planning on going to Star Wars Night at Miller Park June 11!

Here is a photo of my co-pilot and me. Her name is Lucy AKA Lu-Bacca. I hastily put together this Han costume for Halloween, so don't judge me too hard, k? Lucy is wearing my bathrobe here, but one day I will have to make her a proper Chewie costume. Mr. Green

Welcome! I absolutely love your pic and your pup is adorable. I'm relatively new here too (doing my very first troop on Sunday) but I know we have quite a few Jedi experts in the group so if you need any help there is plenty of support. Once you figure out what costume you want to make, I highly recommend posting a WIP in the correct forum so you can get feedback. I found my WIP was invaluable to finally getting my first costume approved.

I don't have anything up yet besides a color template, but at least I've got something to show. Very Happy

Welcome! I am the State Captain for Wisconsin. There are a bunch of 501st Imperials in Madison, as well as some Rebel Legion members. Please check out my thread on Wisconsin events. This Saturday is Free Comic Book Day and I believe there will be some 501st and RL members trooping a Comic Book Store in Madison if you want to check it out:

Westfield Comics 7475 Mineral Point Rd Suite 22 in High Point Center
Madison, Wisconsin

Hello and welcome.

I also in the Madison area. We'd love to see you visit us at the free comic book day events this Saturday. I will hope to see you at Westfield Comics between 10-1!

I will be in my galactic marine.

Good luck with your costume!

Hi Clonus and Zach! Thanks for letting me know about Free Comic Book Day. I should be able to stop by for a little while!

Clonus (or anyone else for that matter), can you link me to the events post/page? I did a search and everything that I am finding is old or non-updated.

Thanks,
Ashley

Not sure this link works for non official REbel Legion members. I try to keep it updated.

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=69112

Let me know if you can access the link. Even if you do, you won't be able to access the 501st's Wisconsin Garrison site. But you can at least see the location and dates. If you PM me, I can get you more information.

Let me know if the link, above, doesn't work...I can PM you the information

Link didn't work for me. Thanks for being willing to send the info. I really appreciate it.

Darn, I wish I was approved so I could have access to this info without having to pester you guys for it. My light saber won't be arriving until August-ish, but I think I may make or purchase an empty hilt so that I can speed up the approval process. At least that way I can be aware of fun summer events without being such a bother!
