Halloween Clarke Quay

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. ^^;

    Wonderful, and I was right, you did go trooping on Halloween. They were telling me how wrong I was and that there was an event for the 501st on Saturday lol. At least, it was a good experience for you right?

    @Mizunaga: I believe those are Blackhole Troopers, something like special ops.

  7. chun says:

    haha! looked like you had fun! 😀 did people actually try to steal a piece of your armor to keep as souvenir? ^^;

  8. k says:

    you looked like you had loads of fun!
    that picture looks even. one vader and tons of troopers. it would have looked odd if there were 5 vaders and only 1 trooper. ^^.

    You don’t fool me…
    I know your “minders”, as you call them, only purpose is to bring cute girls to take pics with you and shoo away the ugly ones.

  20. Fun!
    I can imagine how hard it is to keep track of everything in that armor.I hope you bought them some drinks after guiding and protecting your precious armors the whole night^^

    I wonder how hard it is to keep the armor clean?Dannys armor looked pretty rugged recently

  21. gordon says:

    @ flyingpussyfoot,
    plastic polish will do the trick. ^^;

  22. meronpan says:

    damn that’s awesome, makes me want to get my own suit of armor ^_^ it’s ironic how your visibility isn’t so great despite it being armor for a soldier ^^;; get any good candy? 😛

  23. AK says:

    @ FatB:
