Mission Report:
Nice chilly morning, MaximusStabby and I arrived on location around 9:15. We dropped our kits off in the storeroom and went to check out the location and check in with the organiser. The shopping centre had allocated a section down one end of the mall, where they normally have Santa around christmas time. There were bollards and lines that had been roped off to try and reduce crowding of the area, something that had been an issue in previous years.

We got changed and started up trooping. As well as our troopers there were disney princesses, marvel and DC super heroes, a dalek, and the back to the furture crew. each of us were in our own sections with our own lines so that members could easily filter to who they wanted to see.

photos were a gold coin doantion, all handled by the event organisers. The crowd was steady for most of the day, picking up just before lunch and then calming down again around 1:30pm.

MidnightQueen92 arrived around 11:30am and tagged MaximusStabby out. Piper211 showed up around 12pm and tagged myself out. this was good because it allowed us to have different characters available for the crowd without anyone spending too long in costume.

The organiser called the event to a close around 1:30pm and we packed up and headed out.

Mission Status:
Huge success, always great to see the smile on the face of the public and the Starlight Foundation is an amazing organisation helping sick and ill children in hospital.

After the donations had been counted the organiser informed me they had raised a whopping $1300 for the day!

Thanks Tiggs,

That's such a great effort for only a few hours in kit. You all did a great job. Nice to see another successful Starlight week event with EB/Zing and other local cosplay groups.

Cheers, Sair
