Kathy, I added a link to my photos in your first post. Awesome job everyone!!! There were so many excited kids and adults to see the MWG there, and Tom Kane even gave the MWG/501st Legion a very special thanks during his speech before the screening started to the whole audience. That was pretty darn cool!

Hey everyone!

I wanted to let you all know that you were all awesome at the screening. Fantastic costumes.

I joined this forum back in high school because I was interesting in joining (and I still am!), and I thought I'd come back from my three-year hibernation to give you the pictures my girlfriend and I took.

Ganil, thanks for posting your photos!
And yeah, if this has led to a renewed interest in suiting up with us, that's awesome! If you've got any questions, start a thread in the Welcome Mat section of the forums and ask away!
