"May the Force be with you, always" - Me, Jeremy Bullock (Boba Fett), and our friend Eileen
Star Wars Episode IV, A New Hope was the first really BIG movie I ever saw. I mean REALLY BIG! For a 9 year old, it was life changing. Over the years, I've had the figures, the ships, the comics, you name it. Unfortunately, I sold my SW collection a couple years before the Prequel Trilogy came out. But in addition to Star Wars, I've always loved Science Fiction, comic books, cartoons, Super Heroes, and all the different TV shows and movies that go with all these genres. Right before Star Wars Episode II, Attack of the Clones premiered, I went online to find a local group that liked to wear Star Wars costumes so I could attend a premier in my "Indy Gear" along with Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Jedi, etc. I now know a lot of people in town as obsessed with Star Wars, Star Trek, Sci-Fi, and Super Heroes as I am.
I've also got back into costuming and props, and not just for Halloween. I've a member of the Rebel Legion, 501st Legion, Replica Props Forum, and even the local Super Hero group, Minnesota Superheroes United.
