    Hi All;

    To those I met post-parade. Thanks for making a newbie feel as welcome as an old friend. It was a blast. To those I met before. It was great to see you all again. Jeckyll and Hyde's was so much fun ;) . It wasn't "...so bad. On the outside." (Han in ESB). A toast to next year's parade.

    Matt,

    It was great to have you. They're all a fun bunch...even after you've gotten to know them. We're taking a bit of a break from our meetings since the holidays are coming up, but keep your eyes posted here for upcoming events and notice for our next meeting. Always great to meet new people. Let me know if you're going to post those pics of yours, I'd love to see them.

    You know, I knew that farmgirl was looking kind of out of place in the gaggle of Jedi and Troopers (and a few smugglers *cough*) until I put two + two together.

    My thoughts:

    The Trooper Groupie is a great gimmick. I do marketing and promotions IRL, and I just started thinking about all the possibilities for it.

    The logo - Imperial Logo with a kiss-print overlayed on it.

    Trooper Groupies should have kneepads.

    I was very, very scared of Dana's stake. That thing looked highly dangerous.

    No matter what message board you go to, one thing will always be present.

    In the Village Halloween Parade, you have to make room for the GLBTG community. Sorry, they get priority, no matter how much their costumes suck.

    Speaking of costumes, it was nice to see the Howard Dean supporters dressed up for the occassion.

    Is it "Darth Leia" or "Lady Vader"?

    I just realized i never got any pictures of myself this halloween.... D'oh! Would have liked to seen how my hair actually did turn out.

    Trooper groupies was started kinda as a joke by the Co of the ECG - Rich Kopacz. Then - somehow, it magically turned into a big thing and all the girls go around in short white mini skirts, and knee high white boots being "groupies" to the stormtroopers. Although me - I protest - Im a disgruntled trooper groupie :)

    Dana's stake probabaly could do damage to someone.. hehe

    Its Dark Leia...


    Mmmmm I think this was my last halloween parade. Too much standing around for way too long.

    Funny you should say that. I have a pic. Unfortunately, my only working CF reader is at work, so I'll take care of it tomorrow.

    Once I get it taken care of, I shall PM you.

    As for the German girls, I was going to take a picture, but there was issues.

    BTW, I want to apologize about any... erm... disputes that may have been boiling up while we were waiting to march.

    Some issues came up.

    Going over the pictures, I have the following shots...

    A trooper showing off the Chanel memorial sticker.

    Padme in blue with Jango

    Dark Leia with a trooper, helmet off. Trooper has tight cropped curly hair with a goatee.

    Two female troopers... the Endor Scout and another one, with Endor Leia looking on.

    Trooper Groupie with Trooper.

    Dark Leia with Biker Trooper.

    (interesting photography note... flash photogs at night + trooper helmets = eerie shots of eyes... you can see right through the helmet)

    Not many pics.

    Ok, now I'm confused. I thought the "Dark Leia" was Samantha.

    Oh well.

    #6 is Strong Bad. He's not from SW, but I just thought it was cool. :)

    Samantha was Padme from TPM

    I was Dark Leia, aka the Death Star Tour Guide.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    For my solo costume, I have to...

    1) Lose about 20 lbs.
    2) Shorten the vest
    3) Work on the gun belt
    4) Get the right boots

    Everyone else looked great.

    By the way had a blast marching with you guys and I'm planning on getting imperial kneepads for the next time I wear the trooper groupie.

    Oh and thanks alot sam for letting the pic of me with Rebel scum out. (Thanks for the ride though)

    I think their should be a Scout wing of the trooper groupies. Like a slogan on the Tshirt that says :"Scouts are the first ones in" or something like that.

    Kathy, I knew her name, I really did, and the ride was no problem. Glad you enjoyed it.

    I'm just surprised that that was the only pictures of me giving people rides to show up! after all, I did give 3 people rides during the parade!
