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 big_smile

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 wink

and as an added bonus i come bearing pics

oh how i wish i were a millionaire.

Re: Discovery World Mini Convention

Ah looks like fun. Hurrah for the visor!
The skulls and bones really make your beskar'gam  unique. You must be a accomplished hunter with that many trophies!

501st is awesome. Trust me  wink big_smile

And to Fett_II you don't need to be a millionaire to costume. (Unless you want every single one ever... and have it be movie quality for every last one) It is very possible to be creative in their creation and construction and keep costs lower than one might expect. You might just have to be patient to get what you want at the right price. And you probably have to do some of it yourself. But that doesn't mean it is not possible! I am proof that it can be done!

Re: Discovery World Mini Convention

Your pictures are awesome Regimas. Love the bones on your armor too. Adds a little something special to it.
