You should have seen the look on Ensen’s face…and all the kids for that matter…as we walked into the Aina Haina Public Library this past Saturday. The awe was straight out of a MasterCard commercial…PRICELESS! It was free comic book day and Kelly made it a point to call some of the participating libraries to find out one important bit of information. Which Star Wars characters are going to be at your location?
After phoning the Aiea Library and a couple others in search of Darth Vader (the one Ensen really wanted to see) with no luck, Kelly’s co-worker joked that he would probably be visiting a more upscale neighborhood on the island. She was right and we ended up spending about an hour at the Aina Haina library in awe of Lord Vader himself and two other Jedis…Pak El (in red below) and Ha’vok Tereus (in white below). If you haven’t seen these guys from Rebel Legion Hawaii and Oahu FanForce, make it a point to do so. The costumes are incredible and they donate their time to share their love of Star Wars with the kids. Awesome!
Ensen insisted on bringing his Darth Vader mask which turned out to be a great idea. He was able to do battle with Lord Vader for quite some time and loved every minute of it.
And for “dressing up” and his enthusiasm, Ensen was even interviewed by a guy from Oahu FanForce on his experience that day. Stay tuned for the video soon.
All in all, a very fun day for Ensen, Kelly, Kona Grandma, and myself. What about Avery you ask? Well, she slept through the entire thing. Girls I tell you.
