C2E2 2018

C2E2 is always a great convention to attend.

Once again, Chicago Force had the honor of running an activity for the kids on Sunday. Here are some pictures from the activity. Unfortunately, there are only a few, as we were swarmed and didn’t get to take to many.

Here’s some shots from the show floor!

And you can’t go without seeing lots of costumes:

And even though it’s in the kids area, you HAVE to check out the circus.

Life Day Party 2017

Another year, another fantastic Life Day Party!

Thanks to our hosts Josh and April for welcoming this motley crew into your home once again.

First off, a little yummy food prep was n store.

Time to eat!

And then, the dark side descends.

And how could we not have a party without a TON of talking…

And of course there was our annual gift exchange, but first a little something for the kids.

And now, the STEALING OF GIFTS!

And to end the night.

 

Tree Trim 2017

Another year, another trip to Brookfield Zoo to decorate a tree with homemade Star Wars ornaments.

First, the making of the baubles:

It was a sunny but chilly day on Sunday:

And we were ready to decorate:

Our two-part crew:

Of course, a trip to the carousel was in order:

And how can you go to the zoo without seeing the animals?

Galloping Ghost Arcade!

It was a dark and stormy night. Really, O’Hare got four inches of rain and the southern suburbs got eight. But that didn’t stop us from meeting at Lencho’s house and continuing on to Galloping Ghost.

We watched the new trailer for The Last Jedi multiple times. Then threw up some Star Wars Blips, Thor and other fun videos as we chowed on pizza. Then we braved the rain to head to Galloping Ghost.

So quick game, spot a member of Chicago Force!

And of course, we all spent a little time in what I like to call the Star Wars corner:

All in all, despite the weather, it was a great time.
