Just another day at the Honey Bear when our local representatives of the 501st Legion stopped by. There were so many wonderful costumed guests to choose from, but only one Darth Vader.
Here’s a close-up of those cupcakes. Darth Vader and his 2 Stormtroopers took home Chocolate Salted Caramel cupcakes with chocolate decor.
I used Star Wars pumpkin carving stencils shrunk down as the basis for the chocolate decor. Maybe next year I’ll try them on a pumpkin. Here are some shots of the happenings at the Third Place Books Meet the Stormtroopers event.
There were autographs and art projects galore. Little kids and entire families were dressed as their favorite characters for a chance to win the costume contest. My personal favorite was a fussy baby Yoda in a stroller, but a very close runner up was a little girl dressed as the Deathstar. I missed last year’s event, but I do not want to miss next year’s. The costume contest is pretty fierce, but I don’t see why that should deter anyone from dusting off the old telescoping Lightsaber and throwing on a bathrobe.
I will leave you with this parting shot of Darth Vader with our bear.
