Obtaining this patch was cool. Earning my designation by completing the armor and submitting a picture was cool!
The Fighting 501st (if you don't know of us) is an Internet-based society of guys and gals who have made Star Wars related Imperial costumes - mostly Imperial Stormtroopers.
Through this organization, I have met people from as far away as Canada, Germany, Brazil and Switzerland. They are great friends and Trooper Brethren.
