Title: Sith/Trooper In Southern Oregon
Post by: Kennfilms on May 29, 2018, 06:44:04 PM
Hello,

I'm a Star Wars enthusiast living in Southern Oregon.  I just recently got into "Star Wars" costuming, again (did tons of it, when I was a kid.) Have to admit costuming's lots more fun, now that I have a few years' experience under my belt.

I started with a Sandy and just recently completed a ANH Vader. Definitely looking to join the 501st. I've done volunteer work for military charities, and enjoy doing work that gives back (produced an entire video history of an Army Attack Helicopter Battalion, pro-bono, too)

I'm a video producer, during the day - and I have to thank Star Wars for that career path. I saw ANH, when it first came out, and that was it for me, career wise: I wanted to make "Star Wars!" :D

My wife is also involved - she's the Royal Imperial Guard in the attached montage. If you're interested, you can check out what I do during the day, here: https://www.kennfilms.com  ... and, of course what I do with a good chunk of my free time, here: https://www.theroguetrooper.com

Cheers, all! Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Welcome Kenn and Mrs Kenn! :D

Looks like you two have a few costumes under your belt, and that's great! If you're interested in joining, I'd look over the Costume Reference Libraries for your costumes linked below and ensure that you feel confident you meet all the basic requirements.

ANH Vader:

Sandtrooper:

Imperial Guard:

Once you feel that you meet those requirements, check out this post for instructions on how to submit your costume:

We have some great members in southern Oregon so keep an eye out for our appearances and opportunities to meet up in the mean time!

Please, let us know if you have questions and "We would be honored if you would join us." :)

Thanks, Luke. Will do. The 501st Darth Vader ref. was basically my construction bible for my last project.

Welcome to you and your wife! My husband and I live in Portland, but we try to get down to Southern Oregon a couple of times a year for events. I hope to get to troop with you soon!

Yes, we were. Vader’s premiere - there. Our first Comic-Con was a lot of fun.

Cool! We met briefly, I was wearing my Tusken Raider that day. I live in Grants Pass and have an approved TK. I would love to get your contact info for getting together.
