Finally got everything put together and out on the town. The Mid West Fan Force annual meeting was my wife and my first time with our costumes. Sadly my wife's Mando did not get finished in time but she had a back up plan as a Dark Jedi. We met at Borders in St. Louis on Saturday for a book signing with Aaron Allston (Author of several of the X-Wing book series and the new Legacy of the Force: Betrayal series. I do suggest if you are into SW books to go out and pick this one up. Mr. Allston was a great person to get to know. He came to our Friday night meet and greet and just sat around and fielded questions from all of us about writing and such.
Here is a couple pics of me in my gear and me and my wife.
(Don't mess with a Mando!)
(First day on the job and I get to pull Guard Duty!)
(The wife and I during a break)
(The whole crew including a unit of the 501st's 70th Explorers regiment.)
Thought I would add a close up of the bucket and it's dome. Talk about alot of tedious cutting to get the scorpion right, my hands hurt for several days.
And the blaster rifle I carried for the day. Dang that thing got heavy after a while.
