Imperial Troops Land in Skåne

MALMÖ--Sunday I went into Malmö with my friend Ali. It was a bright sunny day and there was a sci-fi convention in its final day. We met some other photographers there and wandered around taking some pics. It was rather staid compared to Marcon in Columbus, Ohio, which I had gone to with my friend Jake a few years back. Of course this was just in the convention center, not a hotel, so there were no drunk Klingons partying with Orcs later on, no love affairs begun between Furries and Stromtroopers. Actually there were very few people dressed up while back in the US I would guess over half the attendees were in costume. Well, there were a lot of people dressed as Swedes...

The kids are suspiciously young on the first picture, have they even seen star wars? Or could it be so that it's their dads that wanted to see Lord Vader?

Although the girl seem to slowly, slowly, reach for her missile button. While one of the stormtroopers just goes "nah, it's a girl, in a wheelchair, what can she do?".

Love the last picture. The Galactio Empire meets the Coca Cola Empire.
