Well after several years of work I finally got to wear my armor at my first real event. I am a member of a local SW fan club and we usually march in the Christmas parade in Norman Oklahoma every year. I just looked at the local newspaper and saw that I was in one picture. It was a great time although a little cold (38-40 degrees with drizzling rain). The smiles on all the kids faces made it worth it. Here is a link to the pic.
