    Sep 29, 2011, 8:26 AM - UK Trooping events? #1

    Hi guys, all this talking about trooping and I am finally at the phase where I can start to think about trooping. Is there any UK events coming up? Cheers.

    The 3 events I know of are coming up in Oct and Nov. There's the London MCM Expo and London Memorabillia, both on the same weekend at the same place and the Birmingham memorabilia in November.
    If your wanting to go down the 501st route you'll need to go here: UK Garrison and submit your costume for clearance. Be warned if you are doing that and want to go to the London expo/mem you'll also be competing with me and several other fetts. They only allow one Fett on the floor at any one time so we have to spilt the day up so we all get turns.

    Oh, head here for all info about Expo/Mem: London MCM Expo | London Comic Con

    I was planning on going to the Expo anyway, my costume won't be 501st acceptable by then, and I know it. So I'll probably just be going anyway. As I'm not part of the 501st, pretty sure I'll get sent away. If someone says anything they can do one :P

    I dunno about that. I've read about people going in unapproved stormtrooper armour and still ending up chatting and hanging out with the UKG. You should be fine. Be nice to see you there.

    I think I'm only popping down on the Sunday due to work constraints with my mates. Ugh.

    Great event over the weekend. Burnsy, I assume I had a chat with you in the ESB... - Really good to see so much Fett with the TDH stand too. Inspiring stuff!

    Or it might have been me I was costuming an ESB Boba at MEM - I think Burnsy's is a SE, but I only caught a quick glimpse of him and the visor cuts down the amount of detail you can see - I'm sure Burnsy will clarify

    ESB versions seem to be few and far between.

    @ Burnsy - cheers mate, as did yours - I would have loved to have seen more of it while out of costume and picked your brains on tweaking tips but it was just so busy

    @ Boba Trooper - you're right mate, the standard of costuming seems to be getting better and better - kudos to all the top notch makers on these boards and out there in other genres. There is so much choice now, and so much skill, it's a little bewildering at times.

    Jonnyhoob, welcome buddy. Glad the event inspired you to look us up.

    Mark F was also trooping Mem as an ESB Fett

    Darman, so we chatted I think? I never can put a 'real' name with a username

    Rob.
