May the 4th - trooping event Phat Collectibles Huntington Beach.

Post by Askai Katani on Fri Apr 05, 2013 2:40 am

Dark Tidings all,

Phat Collectibles had graciously opened their doors to us to allow for trooping at the location off beach and heil in Huntington beach. This was a slow going process, but was able to lock down this venue with the owner. As has always been my stance all other groups that are available to attend, but this is a TDE EVENT. That being said standard operating procedures will be followed. I have spoken to Lord Bruticus and wede liketo get a bigger turn out if possible! This place gets about 72000 vehicles passing a day! Please direct any questions to me directly. Thanks for reading!

What are the times for this event? If it's during the morning to early afternoon, I can attend this easily (it's just a few miles down the road from Chateau Brutallica). Thanks for getting this together for TDE! FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!!

I might have been a little late to put in for the day off, but hopefully I can make time for some of it before having to go for work.

Awesome! I will be there at 10am for sure. Sadly, I will have to leave for work at 2pm.

Lord Ziro, if you go to see Iron Man 3, let me know how it is! Otherwise, I'd be up for a matinee sometime soon... Cool

I'll be there in my custom Sith, as I can easily travel with it; I need a wrangler for Sidious (that dang brooch). I'll go straight from my place to Phat Collectibles in half-costume; I should be able to finish gearing up in the parking lot.

See y'all Saturday morning.

I just picked up a nifty little item from Gold's Gym to help suck up my cheesecake gut whilst trooping; it'll be concealed rather nicely under my costume tunic - a velcro "tummy belt." LOL One of these days, I'm going to have to see about not needing one!

See y'all tomorrow morning.

MISSION REPORT MAY 4TH 2013 TROOPING EVENT

Post by Askai Katani on Mon May 06, 2013 7:04 pm

Dark Tidings one and all,

It is with Great pride and much joy that I announce to you that our trooping event in Huntington Beach at PHAT collectibles was a rousing success!

Members from our own temple, and members form Saber Guild began to arrive around 10AM (in the morning...), and began to move around the store with locals and many were stopped for pics with them.

Darth Vader made an appearance thanks to Saber Guilds Director Robert Estrada (also a TDE MEMBER Count Dooku, and Saber Guild member Andrew Wood (also a TDE member Darth Maul), Michelle Headley (TDE MEMBER Darth Draven) sadly felt under the weather but still helped out with taking pics and wrangling for Saber Guild- we hope Darth Draven feels better! A very special thank you Robert, Adrew, and Michelle for coming out and representing Saber Guild! I'd also like to take a moment to thank Liz and Sal Perales for coming out dressed in their Aayla Secura and Quinlan Voss Costumes, Curey and Sarah Estabrook- Curey is also a member of Saber Guild and Sarah also cosplays- They also brought their A Game - they ALL looked outstanding and I'm happy to announce that three of them will be beginning their dark Trials within the week! Speaking of outstanding...

The troop eventually made there way outside of the store to stand storefront on Beach Boulevard - for those of you that don't know this is a VERY high visibility area getting about 70 thousand cars passing a day - many honks and pics were taken from passing motorists! Several dozen children and families mentioned they stopped simply for a chance to get a pic with the Jedi and Sith lords in attendance!

Lord Bruticus was able to attain a form of holocron called a "comic", im not sure how they work, but he seemed even more excited than getting hand fed Red Velvet cupcakes by Darth Anino'j - who showed up after work to support the last hour of the trooping event.

The Owner of this location Jason and his Manager Carl were very Gracious and thanked us all for coming out and adding to the spirit of the day, and I'm confident enough to state that I'm sure we will be seeing much more of them in the future!

In closing id like to thank EVERYONE very much for coming out to this event! This was my first event that I handled from the "ground up" and I am Honoured and humbled to have been able to serve you all.

Thanks again to:
Robert "Kiyo" Gomes Darkjedirenegade
Robert Estrada Count Dooku
Michele Headley Darth Draven
Jonina Provenzano DArth Anino'j
Joe Mignano Lord Bruticus
Andrew Wood Darth Maul/Vader
Jason Tao Darth Ziro
Curey Estabrook Jedi Knight blibble blibble blibble (thanks for the crash and costuming space)
Sarah Estabrook Jedi Knight I gotta getta name (thanks for letting Curey let us crash and costume)
Sal Perales Quinlan Vos
Liz Perales Aayla Secure
The Perales Younglings
Captain Jack
And not least of all Uncle George - without him we'de never have The Force.

In Service -
