Met Old Line Admins at Philly

Postby Vantora » Sat Jun 21, 2014 11:48 pm

I've been trying to get into the 501st for a couple of years now, but with college and life sending me in different directions, it has all but become a null priority. The 501st has never left my thoughts, however, and though I haven't the time or money to tweak my costume and get it 501st approved, it hasn't stopped me from wearing it and entertaining at conventions.

My time here at the Wizard World Con in Philly is almost up, but I did manage to meet Allen W Shepherd and Eric Grubb today, CO and XO of Old Line. They were extremely kind and helpful, and have somewhat rekindled my eagerness to become a trooper. Since I'm a good ways away from any known 501st member, I'd been having trouble knowing where exactly to start with building my Stormtrooper armor. (I have a Jawa in the making, but my real goal is a Stormtrooper, not that Jawas aren't awesome.) Shep and Eric helped point me in the right direction, namely to nearby armor parties that I wasn't sure I was invited to.

Even though the 501st didn't have a booth there this year, it's good to see soon-to-be-fellow troopers still getting out there and letting themselves be known. Thanks guys for all your help!

It was great meeting you in line to meet Sebastian Stan. It's unfortunate that your on the eastern shore but that's something we can work around :)
