Star Wars Fans Invade MN Science Museum
Star Wars fans, dressed in authentic costumes, gathered at a Science Museum in St. Maul, Minnesota for the opening of the museum's "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination" exhibit.
You can imagine the visiting children's surprise when Boba Fett emerged from an elevator. The volunteers - all official members of George Lucas's 501st and Rebel Legions - enjoyed seeing the responses to their costumes and playing their favorite Star Wars characters.
In order to be a part of Lucas's Legions the costumes had to be authentic, worn all day and not sponsored by anyone. Check out some of the costumes worn.
