hi guys,
its been a while :)
i hope this is the correct place to put this,if not feel free to move it matt :)

i was going through old home video,and came across some footage i thought you guys n' gals might like.
i've bunged it up on youtube,so feel free to watch it if you would be keen for a bit of batman themed costuming
for charity.
this is old footage put together from the 2009 [i think ?] special childrens xmas party held annually at mystery creek
events centre,hamilton.

anyways,it sure aint star wars,but i hope you enjoy it anyways :)

batman,over and out.
take care friends :)

cheers matt :)

ten years of costuming,the highlight was being on my knees,interacting with a little girl at the SCCP.
we were lucky enough to have caught part of it on tape.
i made the video for her.the whole thing is built around her clip.
you may notice that the music peaks at 1.30 into the vid,when i meet this little girl. that was intended.
im very proud of our contribution to the event.

wherever that young lady is now,i sincerely hope that she is safe,secure and happy :)

another highlight was our combined batman themed troop at wellygeddon.
man,we killed it didnt we huh ?!
the group photo that was taken is my all-time fave costuming pic ever :) :)

thanks guys.

I love SCCP :) Thanks so much for the invite all those years ago :) Been princessing it up at all the ones I can get to still :) A certain ice queen is still very beloved which just makes for absolute magic :)

hi guys,
we attended the sccp event in auckland today,and had a brief troop. [very brief in fact due to my cape button going ba-doing,
and having no way to repair it onsite. tried a safety pin,but the cape is too darn heavy]

had a magic time all-told,and got my game-on even if it was only so painfully brief.
recognised no-one in the current 501st crew,but bumped into an ex-trooper buddy while there,so that was a kick.
[a keen eye will spot him in the vid]

i have made a short video of our experience,and bunged it up on youtube.
please excuse the very average quality,my editing 'skills' still suck.

take care friends :)

well, we attended the mystery creek event yesterday, what a fantastic day it was !!
met some super cool people who were there in costumes, and got a terrific vibe from all the kids.

my girl took some video on her basic style phone,and i whipped up a vid when i got home.
kids never get tired of the batman,and i really enjoyed playing the part for a short time.

thanks guys, have a merry xmas,and a happy new year !
