Topic: Discovery World Mini Convention
This Saturday i went to a star wars costuming convention at discovery world, near the shore of lake Michigan.
There was seminars on costuming and the R2 builders. there was a large display of fan made costumes of all kinds, from chewbacca to zam wessel. i went with a friend of mine (jaerog on the site) and we went in armor
we had our picture taken with people 100+ times in the 4 hours we were there. the 501st was there with the fast growing Wisconsin garrison. We were even approached by the commander of the Wisconsin squad, Trent Thornton. who seemed interested in having us troop with them in the future. he even took some pictures of us by the lakefront.
and , drum roll..... i finally got a visor in my helmet. now Orthar can stop pestering me
and as an added bonus i come bearing pics
