Ladies of the Legions
Jennifer (Jen ) Angel has been a crazy costumer, seamstress, and re-enactor for over 20 years. A 12 year member of the Star Wars 501st, Rebel Legion; a new team member admin of the Ladies of the Legions.
After re-enacting on American Civil War battlefields, and wild west tours, found out about the 501st; traded in my bustle and hoop skirts for white armor. I thank those ladies in Kansas , Missouri and Nebraska for their never ending patience!
''I eventually had a Scout, Snow Trooper, Lady Tusken, AT-ST driver, AT-AT Commander, Zam Wessel, young Boba, and a Jawa. Soon I plan on Arc Trooper armor!
After learning the costuming ways of the 501st I soon became a GML (garrison membership liaison) for the 70th Explorers and later for Star Garrison, and a Regional Captain for the Rebel Legion.
I teach beginner sewing, and most of them seem to go on into costuming themselves! I love to help people get started and then watch their ideas and costumes develop, and be amazed.''
