Art Andrews, the photographer who is well known on The Dented Helmet, came up to the greater Boston area this weekend from Arizona to do 2 days worth of photo shoots with a bunch of us from Alderaan Base and our sister group, the 501stNEG. He worked basically 12 hours straight for 2 days with his assistant Kristin, with all of us gathering in a sweltering dance studio, in hour long blocks, getting in costume and geeking out. Here are just a few shots from the sessions ....

Me and Syagria (Meredith Bailey):



Our 3PO, Tim Drew (I got there too late with my R2 unit and he had to get to work, so he went solo):









And man, I LOVE this one:



and this one:



(Now maybe I can get my Fisto approved with the correct buckle!)

If you ever have a chance to work with Art, DO IT! Not only is he a great photography who works his tail off, he does his homework (had tons of reference pics on his laptop for each character) and gets the most out of you.

Thanks, folks. Yeah, it was a blast, even after 60 minutes of grueling tentacle swinging (man, that thing is heavy!) You would have thought I would have ironed my tunics and tabards, but I almost didn't even go to the shoot, so I just tossed my costume in my gear bin and headed out in a thunderstorm. I hadn't even done any repairs/modifications/touch-ups on my Kit headpiece and gloves since it's debut at a St. Patrick's Day parade, so it was pretty beat up. I tend to finish up a project, debut it, then move on. These pics have inspired me to keep doing Kit.

It was a great shoot. Over the 2 days we had a Vader, an X-wing pilot, 2 different Rebel Commandos (Scorch and the Grey & Yellow one with a scratch over the eye ... sorry, I'm not a gamer and I can't remember the name), Boba Fett, Jango Fett, Zam Wessel, the Joker, a bunch of Firefly people, an anime chick ... I lost track after awhile. Oh, yeah, we had an Indiana Jones and a Jodo Kast, too. It was great, people kept crashing shoots and mixing up characters. It's worth it to get great shots of your costumes if you can.

Awesome shots! It would've been nice to have Kit Fisto smiling while holding up a tube of toothpaste! Laughing
