I’m so excited I got to do another Kids Clubhouse segment at Children’s Hospital! The last one I did was in July, and I had such a fun time. This time I got to hit (fake) snowballs with Kylo Ren’s lightsaber, and did oddly well considering I haven’t played baseball since I was a kid.
Here is our segment:
And here is our awesome group!
Costumers: James Douthitt, Kelly Knowles, Kris Heding, and Amanda Fineran.
Our group was chatting about how funny it would be to just show up to a bowling alley in costume, and we decided to make it A Thing and planned the first annual Minnesota Force Costumed Bowling event. We invaded Elsie’s in Minneapolis, MN (and warned them ahead of time). I decided to make a ridiculous trophy made from a pair of General Hux’s sideburns:
That photo was taken outside of the shadowbox because there was too much of a reflection when I tried to take it inside of the shadowbox. In any case, it’s ridiculous.
A few of us showed up in costume, but some decided against it. We had a really great time, though, and will definitely do this again next year!

First troop of the year was Da Vinci Fest at Stillwater Area High School! This was a really awesome event that combined science, technology, and art (all relative to my interests) and we had a costume booth where we set out a bunch of our props and costumes. We also had a booth for the Droid Builders, so R2-D2, BB-8, BB-9E, and MSE made an appearance, too!
