We were contacted by a family who was throwing a birthday celebration for a little girl, Maggie, who just wrapped up chemotherapy treatment. She loves Star Wars, so her mom wanted some characters to make an appearance. The party was on July 25th, and we had a wonderful time! She was so sweet and so grateful. What a cool kiddo!
Last August, we visited Max, a really cool kid who was battling a multitude of health issues. We had a wonderful time and Max and his family became part of our Star Wars family. Sadly, late last year, Max passed away. We’ve been staying in touch with his family since last August, and they asked us to be part of Max’s memorial birthday party on July 10th. It was a wonderful celebration and a lovely memorial, but it was really difficult to hold it together emotionally. While this is such a huge part of why I do what I do, it’s also the most difficult part. Last year, two of the kiddos I visited passed away, and it was just so incredibly heartbreaking.
We had another premiere event for Black Widow on July 9th, but this time we were at Emagine Theatres in Lakeville. We had a great time! The movie was great, too.
July 8th was the premiere of Black Widow at Emagine Theatres in Eagan. It was also my debut of my WandaVision Scarlet Witch costume! Other than a wardrobe malfunction with one of my boots, the costume fit well and was comfortable, and I think it looks pretty awesome.
July 3rd was the Edina 4th of July Parade (I know, I know…) and HOLY COW did the Jedi turn out for this one! I wore my Poe costume for the first time in ages. The weather was nice (maybe a tiny bit warm) and there was a great turnout to the parade.
