On September 15, we attended the Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field. There was a really big turnout, which was wonderful. We posed for a lot of photos and had a wonderful time!

The Saber Legion: Battleground

On July 14, I volunteered at the Minnesota Force table at The Saber Legion’s “Battleground.” Saber Legion events are always a good time, and this event was no exception. I didn’t take any photos of my costume (I was dressed as General Hux – you all know what I look like in that one anyway).

CONvergence 2018

I think this may have been the most fun CONvergence I’ve attended. I was afraid it was going to be affected by all of the restrictions the DoubleTree put in place, but I had an awesome time. I’m sure it’s because of the wonderful company of friends. Anyway…recap time!

Minnesota Zoo IMAX on May 24, 2018.

I appeared at three different theaters for the Solo: A Star Wars Story premiere in May, and had a wonderful time! The first was at the Minnesota Zoo IMAX on May 24th. I really, really enjoyed the movie and immediately fell in love with L3-37.

On the 25th, I was at the CMX Odyssey in Burnsville, and saw the movie a second time (and loved it just as much).

On the 26th, I was at the St. Michael Cinema. It’s a beautiful theater! I didn’t see the movie a third time because I was kind of exhausted from doing a bunch of troops in a row.

Minnesota Twins Star Wars Night

Fine looking group, I’d say!

On May 22nd, it was the Minnesota Twins‘ Star Wars Night! This was my first time doing this event, and it was pretty fun. Our group was split up into smaller groups to do different activities, and Hux and Kylo were part of a speed trivia game (we didn’t have to answer questions – we just stood in the background and looked menacing). I made it onto the Jumbotron!

It was really cool to watch the game from the balcony. It was a beautiful night, too!

Answer the questions, or get thrown out of the airlock.

Awesome photos taken by Lindsey Rae! Costumers: Pari Elizabeth and Kris Heding.

The highlight was running into C-3PO at the end of the day on Sunday. We hope he’ll join the Minnesota Force and/or Rebel Legion so we can troop with him!
