Star Wars in Concert

On January 3-6, the Minnesota Orchestra performed the music of Star Wars: A New Hope live along with a showing of the film for five shows. I volunteered at four of the five shows, and had an absolute blast! There were so many people excited to get photos with us, and it was fun to wear a variety of costumes over the three-day period. I wore Kylo on Thursday, Admiral Ackbar on Friday, and General Hux on Saturday.

Private Wedding

On September 22, we made an appearance at a wedding at the Como Zoo! It was a really fun time. We surprised the groom and most of the guests when we appeared after the first dance. As the evening went on, we definitely busted out some wicked dance moves.

Minnesota Fan Fusion 2018

August 3-5, 2018 was Minnesota Fan Fusion, a relatively new pop culture convention in the Twin Cities. The Minnesota Force and Minnesota Superheroes United had tables at the convention, so I volunteered at both over the weekend.
