Hope to see some of you guys tomorrow! I'm hoping my costume gets approved by today or tomorrow. But I'll be there regardless as Senatorial Leia!

I had forgotten about this thread! I was originally planning on attending this but another event (non-SW related) popped up that I had to go to so I couldn't make the Comic Con.

How was it? Any pics to share?

It was a great event. We were nonstop at the 501st/RL booth. I just posted a mission report over on the 501st forums, I'll post here as well.

Date:
3/25 - 3/26/2017

Location:
Greenville, SC

Description of Event (Please share as much info as you can):
This was the 4th year of SC ComicCon and this event is really growing fast. We had a great turnout of troopers and an incredibly busy two days of staffing the 501st booth. We were very fortunate to have the legendary sculptor Brian Muir attending the convention... he spent an amazing 45 years working in the film industry and is largely known for being the sculptor of the iconic Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmets. Brian is also an honorary member of the 501st Legion, and his wife Lindsay is a friend of the Legion, and we were honored to staff their booth with Stormtroopers and Darth Vader throughout the weekend. On Saturday afternoon, the two of them came over to our booth for a Garrison photo and we presented Brian with a personalized Carolina Garrison shirt and a 15 year anniversary patch, which he was very thankful for and happy to receive. They will both be at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando and I highly reccomend taking the time to meet them, they are two of the nicest people you'll ever encounter.

Thanks to everyone who trooped, staffed the table, and assisted in making this troop such a success. I'm already looking forward to next year and planning an even better 501st experience.

Congratulations to Will Taylor, John Leppard, Skylar Leakey, and Matt Cohen for their first troop!

A big thanks to Genesis Garza, the lone Rebel Legion member to attend and troop from start to finish on both days and help break everything down at the end.

Lastly, I apologize if I left anyone off! It was a hectic two days and I'm sure I missed someone on the list, please let me know if I did and I'll correct it.

We had a great time! I trooped as Princess Leia, but was by myself (and dad) since I'm still working on my approval, hope to be approved by the end of the month!

I can't wait for next year, hopefully we'll have an even bigger turnout! We also met Brian Muir and got his autograph on a Vader Pop! Him and his wife were super nice! She loved my dad's make shift Vader costume and even asked to take our picture!

I have a few pictures to post as well!
