Been a long time since my last journal update - for the past year I have been a member of the UK Garrison.
We attend charity events across the UK raising money primarily for Help for Heroes and the Make a Wish Foundation.
Everyone gives their time voluntarily and owns their own costume - oh yeah did I forget to mention most of us are Star Wars characters.
At the moment I'm what's called a spotter - we look out for the guys and gals in costume make sure they're ok, not about to fall in any pot holes etc !
But I'm building my own costume at the moment too - I'm gonna be Tarfful the Wookiee general from Episode III Revenge of the Sith ... it's on ongoing process but I'm getting there bit by bit and loving doing it too.
I think the best bit about being a wookiee is that when I'm done I'll be 7ft6 in my costume ^_^
