When LucasFilm Calls...

...Star Garrison jumps!



I can't tell you exactly what's going on, as right now it's Top Secret, but let me just say that LucasFilm contacted our local stormtroopers to enlist their help in something very cool. What I can tell you is that Steven and I spent Friday afternoon and evening in an airplane hangar.

A few scenes from the day:









So, that last photo is me totally not helping. I was learning embroidery stitches for my own purposes, but Kameron took my picture because she found it funny that I was sitting in a manly garage/hangar and doing needlework! And if you can't see, I'd like to point out that my t-shirt says, "I Heart My Geek." My husband picked it out.

As for the other photos, I'm sure you can tell that Steven, Brian, Kameron, Dan, and Kevin are working on armor. The secret part is what it's for. You'll have to wait another 3 weeks or so to get to see the really cool photos!

I can think of nothing better than hanging out, doing needlework, watching Stormtroopers work on armor.

How cool, having Lucasfilm call!

Can't wait to hear the secret (wonder if it is related to that thing I mentioned....)

Beth, it has nothing to do with that concert. I CAN tell you that! ;-)

Ooh, that looks like Kevin's toon-clone armor. Can't wait to see what this is! Man, I wish I wasn't on the stupid east coast some times! I miss all the fun...

Good eye, tk7602! In fact, that's Kevin himself in one of the photos! He flew in from CA for this.
