I bet y’all didn’t know that the 501st Imperial Legion, Darth Vader’s select battalion of troopers, live right here in the Northwest? Yep, and here’s some pictures to prove it.
So. Do you see them? Yes, I actually finished all the kids’ Halloween costumes a week early this year! I couldn’t believe it myself, but I did and they look great. Ms O is supposed to be Leia, but since her white robe is NOT(!!!) pink, I can’t get her in it.
The boys love their Jedi robes and have been wearing them since before they were completed. Last Sunday, when I read that the area’s chapter of the 501st were going to be present at the latest Star Wars book signing at Powell’s, I knew we had to go. What better timing?!
And even one of their favorite characters, (I don’t know, something about a jet-pack this one has that makes him SO COOL!), Boba Fett was there.
You think they’re all calm and cool in the photos, but really they just about peed their pants!
In other Halloween news, I’m in the middle of making these, but of course, mine look nothing like hers. We made some ghost and pumpkin garlands which I love. And tomorrow, I’m having a party making a mess with flubber, hiding paper pumpkins and a pictionary game with 2-3 year olds drawing. It will be SO FUN. 😉
