The Cantina Strikes Back @ First Avenue

On December 9th, my favorite Twin Cities DJ, Jake Rudh, hosted a Star Wars-themed dance night at First Avenue. The 501st Legion and Rebel Legion did the official troop for the event, but I went as Amanda’s +1.

It seemed appropriate to wear my Rebel, Rebel Princess costume again!

We all had a blast!

Getting some dancing in before everyone got in costume! Well, Lindsey and I were in costume, but we weren’t trooping. (Photo by Lindsey.)


Badassery! Costumers: Kris Heding and Lindsey Rae. (Photo by City Pages.)

Jake asked me to film the troop going onstage, so I did that for him. Click here to see the video! It was hard not to cheer at the top of my lungs because I was filming. But here’s a shot that Lindsey took of everyone on stage:



Leia with the son she SHOULD have had, and bonus Mon Mothma for extra awesomeness. Costumers: Amy Scalise, Jeff Scalise, and Kris Heding.


WHEEE! Costumers: Jeff Scalise, Lindsey Rae, Amanda Fineran, A. Tom Rehn, Anna Sawyer, and Nicole Webinger.


And I found Lando!
