THE GOOD:

Another great year, this was the second official event I ever did after I joined (first was NYCC 2007) and as it's my personal shop I've now been here 11 years in a row! Brian, the shop owner, is an official member and trooped with us in costume this year (last one or two had some malfunctions but I helped him fix them). We were lucky to have a half dozen guys and a beautiful day.

Attendance is always good, not as huge as some other locations but enough to keep us busy. We also set up right at the edge of the parking lot and stand by the road drawing in tons of passer by traffic. Dave had fun with his "DEATH STAR" hitch hiking sign, lol, and a few of the regular customers also wore Super Hero costumes (Little Annnie and her dad popped by in her Wonder Woman too).

THE BAD:

Nothing bad to report, the weather was fantastic, we had an entire empty store to change in and things went smooth.

THE MACGYVER:

Dave had trooped the night before, and like a good (and smart) trooper had his gear airing out before this event. Unfortunately he forgot his suspenders, and they are required for his set up to hold the thighs in place. Luckily I had the "go bag" and in it some extra webbing, scissors and duct tape. Using that stuff and his normal pants belt we rigged up a couple of thigh straps and none were the wiser hahahaha!!!
