Here are some pictures of me working at ECCC 2015. I didn't even explore the con this year, I worked the entire time I was there, but I actually had the most fun and raised the most money for the charity, so it was a win-win-win in my opinion.
Darth Princess, trying to lay the smack down. Too bad I blocked my face with my saber.
Working at the Blast-A-Trooper, it sure is fun but is also very tiring.
Blasting with our very own whitmers! The little girl may look cute but "little miss sniper" just pegged us each a bunch, me in the face! LOL.
Me using my new dual-saber technique in the Blast-A-Trooper. This allowed me to deflect most of the body + head shots, much better than one saber.
About to be fired at!
Group photo of all costumed members on Saturday.
More Blast-A-Trooper on Sunday, using the dual-wielding for more protection.
My friend that I used to work with stopped by right when my picture shift had started, so he was able to snag a pic with me.
This was a fun picture. The little mushroom above the "?" is actually a baby's hat. The little one was totally crying, until I turned on my saber. Then he was completely silent. I think we have a potential for the order!
This picture is so full of win. These guys wanted to do a high-five, and our Leia was like "what?! Crazy boys!".
I feel blessed by God to be able to support such a good cause and have so much fun doing it.

Awesome pics scott. It looks like you had a fun time. I'm actually a bit bored with cons. I'd much rather work one than stroll around. It's much more fun to interact with kids, taking pics, playing shoot a trooper etc. That's where the real fun is.

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.

ZahcStarKiller: djcbooks81, My collection is getting pretty fat as well. Three graflex, luke V2, Phoenix Props Kylo, Orbital Machining Obi, and a few custom sabers. Will be looking for a Qui Gon soon, and then I'll be starting to acquire every saber variant from the OT.

ZahcStarKiller: Then the PT. Must have a good Maul and a few clan sabers. The lady of the house just approved my idea of doing a cantina in one of our huge spare bedrooms, so I am starting a Hn in Carbonite (full size) this summer and will probably be starting an R2 also.
