Re: Newbie hoping to become an imperial gunner

Hi, everyone, I'm smuah's wife, Sandra. We have a son who's definitely growing up to be a Sith Lord and will be enrolling in the Galactic Academy. I'm interested in being a Jawa, but I have no experience in costuming and will need a lot of help. Looking forward to attending more events with the 501st.
