TK-8316 (extreme right) survived his maiden trooping on Halloween. It was quite an experience. Pretty droids everywhere.
Halloween last Friday marked my first time out in armour. Was fun but couldn’t feel a thing when cute girlies hugged yours truly for photographs.
In this picture, you see 3 lads in normal clothes, back in 2008 when this post was written, they were still students, barely 18 years old. They eventually gotten their own armour and joined the 501st Legion. They accompanied us the whole night and served as what we call minders, basically guiding us around as it can be difficult to see what’s in front of us with our helmets on, keeping over passionate people at bay from knocking our helmets and stealing our parts to keep as souvenirs, helping passer-bys take pictures etc. Kudos to them, I couldn’t have done it without their help. ^^;
