Model Expo 2011.
So once again, one of the things I've been looking forward to for a long time is over; the biggest Star Wars trooping of the year in Finland: Model Expo. I haad the same costume as last time; Padme's Packing Gown from Episode 2.
We even had a couple of troopers from a galaxy far far away (Norway and Sweden) with us, Anton and Øyvind and Anton had brought a gift for me! He has made me a great version of Padme's Battle outfit blaster! So now there's no excuse at all to be lazy.
On saturday it was quite a lot of people, but it didn't seem like as many as last year. People were shy though, and didn't approach us very easily. We had a cool stand this year with a Tatooine background and a vaporator as well as our logo next to Unicef's which was our charity as usual.
After the troop we went to an afterparty at "Club Obi-Wan". We had a great evening, with outdoor fun for Milla, Jaako and me, playing with a styrofoam airplane. We had yummy pasta and cakes and a lot a laughs. We were all clearly overtired.
On sunday there were far less people, and we figured out that it was probably because it was a voting day here in Finland. Actually the day was pretty calm. I tried to be at the stand as much as possible though, and since I haven't been wearing my MBT shoes for a while I got really tired in my back. I use them under the dress because it is great for balance.
Since I don't have a camera yet, I don't have a lot of photos, but I will post some more here when I get some from others.
