I really wish that I'd taken the time to braid my hair instead of using my Leia braid. I was just so exhausted from staying up all night, trooping earlier that morning, and then being in a 90 degree attic for the shoot.

It has Been 15 years since the Clone War and the Galactic Civil War. Despite their training to follow orders many clones left the Empire for disagreement for the future after Order66. Now the many brave troopers who walked into the rusty bridge to the H$lls of War against Palpatines Empire can at last rest. Here is where they rest and here is where they will be remembered.
The Legend of Sonic Company
During the Battle of Yavin after the Death Star's Destruction. The empire sent 40,000 Imperial Troops to avenge the Death Star. The Helmets you see in Front of you are the very troopers that defected from the Empire to support the Rebels. Why are they remembered? What is the big deal. Reason they fought an entire 40,000 strong army aimed at crushing the rebels. When it was time to evacuate Luke said to them, Come on we're leaving. But the the squad leader said, Go Go, we have take out that Anti-Ship Cannon at the highlands. Leave us and tell everyone we'll miss them. Luke and the other Rebels took off. while the small band of Sonic Company troopers charged head first into the army of 40,000. Only one trooper got to the anti-ship gun and destroyed it. Luke and his unit got out. that last thing he saw was ball of blinding light and a Mushroom cloud. Sonic Company went with a Bang.

Erikku-kun as a Sith Pureblood. This design is based on Vindican's design from Star Wars The Old Republic. The costume has been made by us and the lightsaber is entirely made from rush by Erikku-kun taking as a reference Darth Nihl's saber.
Myself as Satele Shan and Erikku-kun as a Sith Pureblood (based on Vindican). This is another edition of this photo to get a more cinematographic and centered shot with a better framing. I really prefer this one to the first one.
This is the first of and incoming series of images focusing on Star Wars Old Republic and Mass Effect games, from a photoshoot with Shanoa Nebulaluben and Erikku-kun. Hope you like it and stay tuned for more!
