Costume of the Week – Mara Jade (Green Dress)

Feb 8, 2016   //   by admin   //   News  //  No Comments

Mara Jade Skywalker was, during different times in her life, an Emperor’s Hand, a smuggler, and later a Jedi Master who sat upon the Jedi High Council. She was raised as a servant to Emperor Palpatine and became a high-level Force-using operative. After Palpatine’s death, she received his last command, which was to kill Luke Skywalker; however, the death of her Master caused her to go rogue. Eventually she joined smuggler chief Talon Karrde, becoming one of his best smugglers and his second-in-command. During the predations of Grand Admiral Thrawn, she was forced to work with Skywalker, and developed a grudging respect for him. During the Galactic Civil War, Mara Jade proved herself skilled in a variety of fields; she was a good pilot and mechanic and trained in the use of both a blaster and hand-to-hand combat even without relying on the Force.

Temple of the Week – Tyria Temple

Feb 8, 2016   //   by admin   //   Detachment News, News  //  No Comments

Our logo was designed to match the other detachment logos in Wraith Base. Everything ties in to our Base’s inspiration… Wraith Squadron.

The Temple’s name is derived from Tyria Sarkin, a pilot in Wraith Squadron who went on to become a Jedi.

The use of gray is because Wraith Squadron’s primary colors were gray and white. The yellow and purple are found in Wraith Squadron’s logo and, as such, the Wraith Squadron colors were adopted by Wraith Base.

The use of the Jedi council floor is somewhat self-explanatory but the color was changed to yellow simply because yellow exists in maidsalamode.com Base logo.

The black swan signifies Western Australia. As such, the black swan appears in every Wraith Base logo. In the case of the Tyria Temple logo, though, the swan was combined with Jedi symbol, in order to make it unique to Western Australia.

The Southern Cross constellation in the upper left hand corner is commonly found on Australian Rebel Legion logos. It’s utilized here as a mark of unity with other Australian Rebel Legion Bases.

Shay’s Favourite Obi Wan Kenobi Quote: “Another happy landing”

Pictured below is his Obi Wan Kenobi Revenge of the Sith version. Shay has been instrumental within his base in ensuring that the base has the resources to draw in a crowd with the extensive Banners and large scale Props they display at conventions.

I wonder if these two have any idea that their paths will cross again at this same location, 20 years from now.

Costume of the Week – Obi Wan Kenobi (Revenge of the Sith)

Feb 1, 2016   //   by admin   //   Costume News, News  //  No Comments

Obi Wan Kenobi, was a Jedi general during the end of the clone wars and the waning days of the Old Republic and only one of two surviving members of the Jedi High Council.

This costume is both simplistic in design and complex in execution.

Temple of the Week – Akar Kesh

Feb 1, 2016   //   by admin   //   Mission News, News  //  No Comments

Akar Kesh is the name of the Temple of Balance from the novel Dawn of the Jedi: Into The Void. Our Base is Tython base, named after the home planet of the Jeda’ii who will later be known as the first Jedi’s in the star wars galaxy. We felt the temple of balance accurately described our base. The Logo is representative of the destructive nature of the planet Tython that strived to have an equal balance of Darkside and the Lightside of the force. Although you see a ravaged world crumbling behind the jedi, he is prostrating in complete peace. i.e Balance.
