Best part of the day was a father and son asked to take a picture...son was like I have you at home! Father said that I looked just like the star wars black series figure and it was his sons favorite!

Best part of the day was shaking hands with Colin Ferguson while his costar Ed Quinn took a picture I wonder where that’s going to wind up?

Comic Con 2018...where to begin:

Hallmark booth Thursday 19JUL18

d735f207de505a9320d4d6ca80b8dc1c.jpg

Best part of that day was as follows: So, I am at the Hallmark booth and this lady comes up to me and is like "I need you to come with me right now!" Who are you I ask? "I am with Disney!" OK, where am I going? "We are doing a book signing, and you are a Stormtrooper and you look cool, so let's go!" Of course you dont say No to the people who own the rights to the Star Wars Franchise! Wind up participating in Rae Carson's book signing of her new book "Most Wanted"! She even signed a copy for me! I am on Disney's list now!

So people are starting to ask “Are you Mark Hamill?” Couldn’t figure out why until my Garrison mates showed me this:

Apparently a picture (this picture below) was taken and wound up on NBC’s national news feed for ALL their Comic Con coverage!

501st Annual droid hunt...

I had close to 40 “droids” stuffed into both my forearms! When I went to turn them in I had to have one of my teammates help take them out! I looked like a ticket vending machine!

Was tired so I caught some Zzzz’s...I am active duty mil so I’m used to wearing body armor and with my fans going...I leaned up against the backdrop and struck a pose and figured that if someone wanted a picture they would ask or just take it anyway LOL

Comic Con 2018 various: I had a blast and just wanted to share some of my “other” adventures with you all!

I was featured in several local news cast, one from England (Darth Maul from England interview) found myself in a couple of videos, and was pictured in a couple of “best cosplay” articles!

And must have had my picture taken 1000’s of times...it literally took me 2 hours to make it back to my hotel on Saturday!

Best story I have from all the Con is this message sent to our Garrison command staff...

All in all I really hoped that I was able to bring a smile to all those Star Wars fans and that I also represented the 501st and MEPD well!

25AUG18: San Diego Festival of Books.

Best part of the day was when a young girl asked to re-take a selfie with me...”Mr. Stormtrooper, could I take another picture with you? I forgot to smile in the first one!” Too cute

Best part of the day was presenting Santa, who was helicoptered in, with our Imperial Sands Garrison coin; his Elves said that’s all he talked about for the rest of the day!
