A picture says a thousand words. And so, except for a few words here, let the photos above speak their piece. This happened Saturday, June 21st, at the Barnes and Noble 4600 Commonwealth Center Parkway in Midlothian, Virginia. Members of Garrison Tyranus (which is part of the 501st) and two Rebel Legion members (me and Rachel) trooped in costumes we had made at the Summer reading premiere. people with children came, took pictures with us, the kids made masks and had their face painted. There were games and one of the B&N staff read to some of the the children also. No, there is none of me in my jedi costume here--forgot to have someone take one of me.
The first picture is copies of my book, Haunted Richmond, signed, and sitting on the counter. The others are of Tyranus people in costume, or of the one of my husband tying his boot, getting out of it after trooping. The last one is of a little boy who came dressed as Obi-Wan Kenobi, with a white beard drawn on the lower part of his face. Isn't he adorable?
