Higgins Armory Star Wars Day

On Saturday May 12th, members of Alderaan Base and the 501st New England Garrison were out to support the Third Annual Higgins Armory http://higgins.org/ Star Wars day. The museum showcases a personal collection of arms and armor from various regions and time periods, and tries to connect it to the modern day through interesting programming around popular themes. Around 25 group members were present to roam the museum and help bring the Star Wars universe to life for over 700 museum patrons. In addition, members assisted with two educational panels showing how Star Wars costumes were derived from historical armor: Darth Vader was dressed next to a Japanese Samurai and an Animated-Style Clone trooper was dressed next to a Gothic-style Knight. The Museum extends a huge thank you to everyone that helps make this event a success!
