  1. Troop #22: August 14th, 2021—Free Comic Book Day, London, ON Nine months and three lockdowns since the Santa Claus parade last year, our squad got to do our first troop of 2021! While guests waited in line to participate in Free Comic Book Day at our local comic store, we offered photo ops and collected donations for Make-A-Wish. It felt SO good to kit up again. Hopefully it isn't too much longer before we get the chance to do it again. Plus, we raised $370 for Make-A-Wish—woohoo! I'm the rightmost TK, next to the TIE pilot. I'm the middle TK in these shots. I'm the one in front, to the rightmost side of the photo. I'm the one to Vader's right in this one. I spent some of the day in alternative costumes (Plo Koon and generic Jedi): I am dressed as Plo Koon in this one. In this one I am in the Jedi outfit with the black mask. And some other great shots of our squad, alongside our Rebel Legion and Droidbuilder colleagues: These droids were SO impressive. Good times!
  2. Troop #21: November 14th, 2020—Santa Claus "Reverse" Parade, London, ON After a long, pandemic-induced hiatus from trooping, I was thrilled to have the chance to suit up for this neat reverse parade near my hometown. We, along with all the other "floats", set up stationary displays along the runways of the local airport. Cars would drive through single-file and wave from their windows. It was a joy! A very clever alternative, too. It was non-stop traffic from start to finish—I'm told the line-up for entry was over 5km long! Great turnout and tons of fun. That's me on the far right in the Christmas sweater.
  3. Troop #20: January 24th, 2020—Ontario Collector's Con, Mississauga, ON Retro-actively posting an event from January; to be honest, I don't remember much about it. It was just over eleven months ago, yet it feels like a decade has passed. But I do have a picture! So, voilà, Troop #20!
  4. NON-TK Troops: December 19th and December 22nd, 2019—Toronto and London, ON What a year. I hope you all are healthy and well! I wanted to catch up my troop log even though there isn't much happening at the moment. Since this thread is also a troop record for personal use, I hope it's okay if I include some troops where I'm dressed as something else! Of course, I won't count these toward the official tally for badges. Both of these events were premieres for Rise of Skywalker last Christmas. The first was the Canadian premiere in Toronto, and it was super memorable! Right up there with Pride 2019 and Weird Al for magical experiences that I never thought I'd get to do. I was dressed as Plo Koon—I'm all the way on the left in the group line-up. And some other cool shots. A good-looking crew! That same week, we had a smaller event at a local theatre for charity. Smaller theatre—but comfier chairs. I was Plo Koon at this one, too.
  5. Troop #19: November 30th, 2019—Windsor Santa Claus Parade, Windsor, ON One more parade before the year wraps up! This time in Windsor. Great times! Only two more events left this year. Both of them are Rise of Skywalker premieres—I can't believe how quickly that arrived! Happy holidays, all!
  6. Troop #18: November 9th, 2019—London Santa Claus Parade, London, ON A chilly but (thankfully) dry evening to walk through downtown London! We were behind a float with pumping tunes so dancing was abundant. Also, it was a ton of fun to Christmas-ify our costumes. That's me in the back with the Santa hat.
  7. Troops #16 and #17: October 27th, 2019—Hallowe'en Family Fun Day + Halloween Spooktacular, Windsor, ON Jinkies, I have neglected this log! Time to catch up. Two troops back-to-back on October 27th, both in Windsor. I love Halloween. Tons of kids in costumes. Great times! Here is the group shot from Family Fun Day—aaand I missed it, in true stormtrooper-aim fashion. The second photo is proof of my attendance. Imperial family photo. I am the one on the far right. We left Family Fun Day and headed straight over to Malden Park for Windsor's 4th Annual Halloween Spooktacular. We even met up with some superheroes at this one!
  8. Hahaa fantastic!! I looove those hand-on-the-head shots. Classic Chewie. Definitely looking forward to next time! And congrats on the armour!! If you need a hand, let me know. AP is a great choice. Though it may get hot in there with all the fur ... [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Troop #15: October 5th and 6th, 2019—London ComicCon, London, ON The convention closest to my hometown of St. Thomas, ON! This was the first time the 501st and sister groups attended this con, and it was awesome to have such a successful showing! Doing Blast-a-Trooper with my bestest-TK-buddy, Pat. Good times, brother! But I'm still gonna stand behind you. Sucker. He paid me back for that when he was out of costume. I also got to test-run my two new costumes for Rebel Legion. Make no mistake, though—UNQUESTIONED LOYALTY! TK first and forever. The first is Plo Koon, seen here on the far right: And the second is a generic Jedi outfit for times that require good visibility, like range-handling and keeping an eye on this (SPECTACULAR!!) Galactic Academy trooper, Nate. I'm on the far left. "You will forget Order 66." So THIS is what it feels like to be on the other end of the blaster And some other great photos of the garrison, including the Michigan troops and mandos who came up to joins again. Look at these two snowtroopers!!
  10. Troop #14: September 22nd, 2019—Windsor ComicCon, Windsor, ON I was only able to attend the second day of this, but what a great convention! Awesome turnout of con-goers and costumers, and some folks from the Michigan garrison even came up to join us. Good times! I'm the one on the far right. Some photos from my Blast-a-Trooper shift. Still my favourite thing ever, though I have had to treat a few armour cracks by this point ... "Maybe we can come up with a diplomatic solution?" "Nope, she prefers aggressive negotiations!" And some awesome photos of the rest of the Canadian and Michigan garrisons. I am particularly fond of George's Punisher TK here. SO cool!
  11. Troop #13: August 17th, 2019—Aviation Fun Day, Breslau, ON I missed logging this one! Retro-actively adding it. This was an awesome event at the Waterloo airport. People came to look at a bunch of cool jets and hang out with some Star Wars characters. I don't have a ton of photos—there were about 15 characters present—but here are some of me with Han and Chewie. Tons of fun!
  12. Thanks so much!! I appreciate your time and feedback. The journey doesn't end here, I'll definitely keep tweaking as per your notes. Have a great day and thanks again!!
