Okay, so here it is. Me stepping out of my comfort zone.
I was cleaning one day and out of the blue an idea came to me. Wouldn’t it be fun to do some photo shoots that would showcase life in Hawaii but have a Stormtrooper* as the main character? Well, on a whim, I sent a message to the Pacific Outpost of the 501st Legion and asked if they’d be interested in participating in a project like this. I didn’t really expect to hear back from them, but fortunately I did. I also really lucked out and found an awesome photographer who loves Star Wars.
Thus, Troopers in Hawaii was created. I’m going to try to post this photo-story column every month, or every other month, for a year. This project is a lot of work but also a lot of fun. I hope you all enjoy it.
