So, I just got a new leg. It still needs some work but it is good enough that I was able to attend a troop near my town. Just like 15 miles away. Haven't done an event since a few weeks before Christmas. So, it felt good to get the armor back on but, I did gain some weight! I have to loose it for many reasons. Anywho, the event turned out really good for being in such a small town. And I mean small! VERY SMALL! they had parking lines in the middle of the street! It was really odd! I think the whole main street was like three blocks. There was a good amount of kids that showed up. It was a pretty fun troop. Sometimes I think that the small troops are the best. Here are some pictures from the event! Oh yeah, because I am a Stormtrooper Commander i get to carry lightsabers as an official part of my costume. a good friend made a really cool lightsaber that fits in with my costume really well. I used it at the event. So you can see it pretty good in the pictures. It was a hit too! People were very surprised that it was made of PVC and it is very light so it was not a pain to carry. Most metal one I don't use because they tent to get heavy and a pain to lug around. Plus it is safer around the kids. Oh, and the blade is hollow. It has NO cellophane or anything in it and the room is a fully lit library so it was nice and bright with florescent lights. So, nice and bright LED! Can't wait to finish the blade on it. It will be a lot brighter then!

Amp, looks like you and the kids and everyone else had a great time. I do agree that the leg does lend a lot to the costume! I'm glad this has not hendered you at all for trooping. The saber looks cool too!

Amp, looks like everyone had a great time there, As soon as I saw the saber I remembered nevik telling me about it a while ago. The new leg looks really high tech, Im glad to see you got something state of the art, and it even looks cool! Glad you got out and had a good time
GK45: Prolly for the best, my Wisdom Tooth has decided it doesn't like my mouth and has begun seceding little by little and I can't get it pulled for another month yet so sugar isn't my best friend right now...not that it is stopping me.

GK45: Supposedly they know how many times you've checked a tracking number and laugh at you.

scarecrow: Then they've gotten more than a few laughs on my behalf. I'm probably their Sam Kinison.
