CAW! The #FalconGuard tried to recreate our sticker. Well. Mostly. There were some differences. Look, we’re working on it, okay? #starwars #starwarscosplay #501stlegion #idenversio #infernosquad #praetorianguard #scouttrooper #battlefront2

Straight out of Zulu after battling at Rorke’s Drift this praetorian guard has found himself pressed into the motley crew of miss-fit guardsman that make up my growing army.

- Snoke and his Praetorian Guards from Star Wars The Last Jedi - what do you guys think of @riancjohnson approach of the Star Wars universe with The Last Jedi? I personally think it’s a masterpiece of a film, I really loved Luke Skywalker’s character development, and when Rey and Kylo Ren have their force bonding scenes, it’s just a really awesome movie. My one complaint is how early on Luke Skywalker died, I wish we would have seen him more. Although I am aware of the backlash it caused, but in no way am I okay with the hate the movie got. Anyways, what do you guys think? Comment your thoughts down below & be respectful! •

Time to repaint my shield with something a little different. The old design is covered, now to make the templates and shop for paint colours.

#otho reigned for three months before committing suicide and his #caeserwod is weighted, L-sit rope climbs. I managed a few legless weighted climbs to the very top, but adding the L-sit to the legless position was hard and I bailed so as not share Otho’s fate.

November 8th marks my @official501st legion anniversary. Thanks to everyone who has helped make my time within the legion such an amazing time. I've met so many people and received so many opportunities to help be part of Bad Guys doing good. Let's see if I can keep up my pace of 2 costumes a year (Sithtrooper and Mimban Officer)

The Praetorian Guard is no joke. Although, it would be a bummer to suddenly lose a weapon like some of their members do. I’m looking at you, middle guy.

So here’s the thing, I enjoy all the Star Wars films, even the bad ones. I’d rather watch a bad Star Wars film than a good regular film. That being said The Last Jedi IMO has been the worst Star Wars film. But these guys were cool.

When you’re trying to take over the galaxy, but you’ve got a dinner party at 6 💥☄️
.
.

I found this gorgeous red velvet number at a vintage thrift store when I went on vacation to Colorado this summer. It immediately caught my eye on the rack, but my suitcase was already filled to the brim and I couldn’t possibly take anything else home. However, after I was convinced to try it on and it fit me like a glove, I couldn’t say no to my friend gifting it to me as a wedding shower present! I’ve since worn it to our Rehearsal Dinner and now Dapper Day, and I’m so excited to have another versatile vintage piece as part of my collection 🥰

In the tradition of previous robed guardians like the Senate Guard and Emperor Palpatine’s Royal Guards, the Praetorians are highly skilled fighters trained to a superhuman level. These red armored guards focus specifically on melee combat, and they utilize various weapons which they brought to bear against Kylo Ren and Rey

The ARTFX+ Praetorian Guards released in 2018 are clad in their ornate bright red armor and robes and come with a dazzling array of interchangeable parts to customize their look and display. The two figures come with three types of helmeted heads, two styles of arms, and no fewer than six types of melee weapons (including different weapon configurations)

Hump day photos seem to have become struggle photos. So here's the ultimate struggle here. For those of you who don't know how the Praetorian armor works, the top shoulder plate is actually zip tied onto the armor. This means I'm effectively trapped in the armor without assistance - my arms don't have nearly enough flexibility to allow me to cut the plates off myself.
This particular photo was after @setec_astronomy_101 found me in our hotel room, just laying on the bed, waiting for someone to get back and help me out of the armor. Trapped lobster indeed. At least it's an armor I could lay down and get back up in. .

The Praetorians From "Gladiator"

The movie "Gladiator" has over the years become one of the best known pieces of cinema on the Romans. Among other things, it also features the Praetorian Guard, the bodyguards of Rome's emperors. In this post we will examine how the Praetorians appeared in the film, and whether or not they conform to how they were in real life.
---
The Praetorians are depicted wearing purple Tunics, probably as a sign of their status as an Imperial bodyguard, but there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that this was the case in reality. Purple was a color of the emperor, that not even his guardsmen shared. Additionally, the Praetorians are all shown wearing capes, but this again wasn't the case in reality.
---
All Praetorians are shown wearing the Romans' famous banded iron armor, but this is made of black leather in the movie. This creates two issues. Firstly there isn't any evidence to suggest that all Praetorians wore this armor, which tends to be overstated by modern people anyway. Secondly, the Romans did not wear leather armor. The other armor worn by the Praetorians is also not accurate.
---
The most accurate parts of the Praetorians in the movie are their weapons. The Praetorians' javelins are a heavier version of the Pilum with a metal ball near the tip to add extra weight, although its use wasn't universal among the Guard, let alone the whole Roman army. The sword, Gladius, the Praetorians carry also looks impressive. The Praetorians' shields are more dubious, mainly because of their insignia.

The most accurate parts of the Praetorians in the movie are their weapons. The Praetorians' javelins are a heavier version of the Pilum with a metal ball near the tip to add extra weight, although its use wasn't universal among the Guard, let alone the whole Roman army. The sword, Gladius, the Praetorians carry also looks impressive. The Praetorians' shields are more dubious, mainly because of their insignia.

elite praetorian guard fresh off a star dreadnought looking for a new supreme leader to serve. hmu if you hear about any openings. 🛑

once I learned Galaxy’s Edge would be set in the time of the new trilogy & started thinking current bounds, I knew the red guard was A MUST. I love a bold monochromatic look & red is my favorite pop of color, so I guess I’m one big pop haha!
.

P.S. I’m pretty proud of this obi belt I made even tho I def chose the wrong material lol.
P.P.S. also, I straightened my hair to sort of emulate the guards’ helmet... & the humidity did me dirty. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️
