On the right.  

 

They were expecting some 5,000 people- and I'm pretty sure they exceeded it!

I later heard the alien got third place in the costume content, so that was cool!

One away from the big 100!

It's on the books, too!  May 6th - Star Wars Night with the Fresno Grizzlies.  One of our biggest events of the year and it's finally back on!  Going for Phasma- gotta go big or go home for Grizzlies!

I was gonna say exactly what Andrew said! Major milestone coming up!

A testament to AM 2.0 armor, too!  98 of my troops have been it.  It needs a few fixes and some cleanup, but it's overall going strong.  Looking forward to hitting the 100 with the ESB and with FISD generally. :D

WHAT I THOUGHT WAS MY 100TH TROOP BUT I TOTALLY SKIPED ONE SO IT WAS ACTUALLY TROOP #101 :laugh1:

101. Star Wars Night with the Fresno Grizzlies, Fresno, CA - 5/6

This one cracks me up because I keep thinking it looks like I'm flipping the camera off.  I'm waving to the crowd, there were some excited kids in the front row. :laugh1:  Still waiting on the photos from our other handlers, so if any standout I'll update the post to share.  GONK droid stole the show, unsurprisingly.  People though he was a prop until he'd start walking around.  It was also Vader's first troop (in Vader, he's got a Royal Guard and a Nihilus).  

 

Great group of people, great troop, bordering on hot weather but not boiling like in some years past (seriously, we've done this troop in 100F+ weather before, not fun!)  Phasma continues to have a couple of kinks to work out, but they are in progress and overall, she's actually not too bad to wear!  I still tap out at about the two hour mark, but I think that's solid.  (I switched to Rebel Scum OT X-Wing for the second half of the night, and had a blast, little girls were really excited to see Iden Versio, me and a female Jedi wondering around).  Even did an interview for a local news channel!

 

And I finished my new FISD patch shirt just in time for the occasion!

102. Star Wars Night with the Modesto Nuts, Modesto, CA - 5/14 (Phasma)

 

52085516155_220fd8e70c_o.jpg

 

I finally got to troop with a Kylo!!  He was excited to finally troop with Phasma, too.  We all braved the 96F heat and no one passed out!  It was a win.  And it looks like we're holding hands in this photo and that also cracks me up.  

 

I need to add velcro (or figure out a better magnet situation) to the finger tips/gloves because a few of them just won't stay on.  Hence why my fingers are curled here.  But I did adjust the velcro placement for the gaskets on the arms and legs and the shins no longer dig into my feet and the forearms don't eat the wrist plate as bad anymore (still needs a little tweaking, but way better) and also doesn't dig into my wrist.

SO I'M AN IDIOT! :laugh1:  I totally forgot about and skipped over an entire troop.  What I thought was my 100th troop was actually my 101st troop.  Whoops.  

 

Going back and adding it all in and editing now, hahaha.  I can't believe I did that.  My actual 99th troop was a great one, too!  how could I forget about it?
