Cosplay, robots and charity work comes together at Comic Con Stockholm
Meet character from a galaxy far, far away and some from our own galaxy too, which appear to have just stepped out of the screen! Nordic Legions, that is made up by the organizations: The Rebel Legion – Nordic Base, The 501st Legion – Nordic Garrison, The R2 Builders Club Sweden, Nordic Reel Icons and Mandalorian Mercs will be there with a variety of costumes and robots. Come and say hi, meet their members and supporters and found out how to join, what they do and how to help out!
At their stand they offer different activities, such as:
Photostand: Come and have your picture taken with some of their costumed members. They have printers available at the scene, allowing for your picture to be printed right there on the day. They do charge a small fee, but money collected will be donated to Rädda Barnen Sverige (Save the Children Sweden). They understand a lot of you want to use your own cameras and phones for the pictures – who wouldn’t want to keep that picture of Darth Vader forever to be printed again and again? This is of course allowed to! Any donation made before or after this is very much appreciated – both by them and Rädda Barnen Sverige.
Blast-a-trooper: “Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise”. Come and test your aim and contribute to the collection for Rädda Barnen Sverige. Perhaps compete with a friend? This is great fun for kids and adults alike!
Droids: R2 Builders Club are demonstrating their droids and showing how they were made. Do you want to make a rolling, chirping droid yourself? The R2 Builders can assist!
Parades: Twice a day they will have a Star Wars parade around the convention hall. Have your camera ready!
