Just a quick post today. This weekend, during the Harvest Race in Portland, the 501st, which is a professional Star Wars cosplay group, showed up to help Magic Wheelchair reveal a new costume. You can check out the story here.
My family was invited to come with our costume to help promote Magic Wheelchair. Anyways, to the point, I got to see the super cool costumes of the 501st. For a big Star Wars nerd like myself, it was a huge treat. Chewbacca stole the show.
These guys never broke character and were just awesome about taking pictures.
The Tie Advanced is the Magic Wheelchair costume.
