Mission Report: Part of Church St was blocked off for the festival to be held on the street. The booth was set up with both 501st and Rebel Legion banners (thanks to Katzor for running around in the morning and grabbing them).
Our base of operations was an empty shop lot which was used for storing our gear and getting kitted up.
The troop started with a soft start as there were not too many people in attendance but before too long, a reasonably steady procession started. Photo requests soon started and all groups were putting smiles on people’s faces.
There were quite a few cosplayers around: Assassins Creeds, Cap'n Jack Sparrow, Harley Quinn, Freeza and the crew from USS Tydirium were in attendance with a booth.
Darrell (Sgt Hatred) was event organiser and sponsor. He MC’d the proceedings for the festival from the centre stage as well as running around a Jaffa from SG1. The cosplay contest had a quite a few entries in this inaugural event. Tython’s own Commander Fox took home the grand prize.
Vader and Nihilus became westies and started having it out local style in the street..

This was the first of this event and has great potential
I hope to see big things out of this and am looking forward to next year.
