Mattoon IL-Nicholas' 10th b day-10/23/11

Post by animal x »

Sunday October 23rd I showed up at Isaaks Family Fun in Mattoon at about 12:45 and thought to myself "oh boy". Nobody was there. I talked to the owner of the establishment and told him who I was and why I was there, and made sure it was ok for me to be there in full costume. As it turns out the owner is a huge Star Wars fan and was pretty excited about it and offered me a place to suit up in the storage room but, 1:00 came around and no birthday boy. I was getting a little concerned, however, at 1:15 he showed up. I introduced myself to the mother who I had talked to over the phone. The kids took off for a laser tag session and I went to get suited up. I came out in my TK and the parents as well as the owner went nuts.I went into the laser tag room and snuck up on the kids. They turned around and saw me and were shocked. The look on Nicholas' face was priceless. the kids were so excited. I even made one smaller boy cry, not from fear of me, but because he was sooo excited to see a real live Stormtrooper. At that moment I thought to myself "this is why we do this" :D
It was a small event but a good one. The birthday boy even got a force fx lightsaber.
