The Midwest Garrison was selected to host Star Wars Celebration 2019 April 11-15. It's going to be held at McCormick Place in Chicago. This isn't your average Con, it's an all out 5 day red carpet experience with celebs from the films, costumes, makers and all kinds of cool shit. Tickets go on sale June 5 at noon. If any fans in the Chicago area or even within traveling distance want to come out I'll be there all 5 days and when I'm not working let's grab a beer or soda or whatever. So, I'm gonna be busy for a while it seems...

I'll have one for each day. My Tusken, Mando, Fallen Jedi, Darth Nihilus, and I'm going to start a Mandalorian Pilot and see if that gets done.

ETA: a resistance pilot is also on the table.

If you want to see what it's about get on YouTube and search Star Wars Celebration 2017. Its way more than just walking around and standing in lines.

Will you drink beers with us in your costumes?


No!

Can we view snaps of these costumes please. Do you cosplay? Thanks in advance.
