    Pink Stumps Day 2017

    Brisbane - Stafford Heights

    18/02/17


    The Redbacks played their full game of 20/20 cricket today (through the nation wide Pink Stumps Day) raising money for the Glenn McGrath foundation who help place Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and it was a was a great success! Trooping with great mates, having a great time and raising money for Charity, what's not to love! And of course since Pink is teh colour of choice for racing awareness for Breast cancer, players were encouraged to deck their armour out in as much pink as they could throw at it!

    There were plenty of boundaries hit and yes it was hot (Probably the single hottest troop I've had so far) but it was well worth it
    Already looking forward to next year!











    (One of my favourite photos of the day, really dig the lighting)








    And yes the guys played in full armour, and yes they were actually able to smash some amazing boundaries! Not bad for troopers famed for lack of visibility and horrible aim







    And yes the obligatory streaker invaded the pitch, whom Vader swiftly dealt with

    Also for a bit of fun I threw together this quick and dirty video from any of the footage I could scrounge up (Most were Facebook Live-streams)
    Only spent 15 or so minutes in some down time throwing it together but I figured it'd be a fun thing to post up

    pretty crazy

    So I just found out there was a photographer running around at Pink Stumps Dat this past weekend and as luck would have it it I somehow ended up in a few photos and figured I'd post them up since they're really quite nice and of a hight quality

    (And before someone says it I know padding would have helped for pics like this but this was a troop in the middle of an Aussie Summer so it was hot enough as it were. That and the public don't notice or care so if it means I'm not going to drown in sweat then it's a compromise I have to make in weather like this)

    Anyway on with the pictures
    (Credit to the following photos goes to Scuba Squirrel: https://www.facebook.com/ScubaSquirr...raphy/?fref=ts)





















    And also we made the Local paper again

    I think cricket must be the weirdest sport ever, but then I remember American football

    Those are some nice shots there, yes

    Haha thanks mate, I do love my cricket!
    But damn it was hot, easily the hottest troop I've done with it being the middle of an Australian Summer and the middle of the day, but at least I know I can do it now!

    This looks really great, some shots are like they're right from the movie, well not the background but the costume

    ROTJ Vaders seem to be super-glossy and polished, but has it been ever covered why he suddenly turns satin/matte after the emperor arrives?

    I basically hate ALL sports equally

    Feel free to share the heat with the folks in the north we have had 0-5C for quite a while now, and today we got about 4-6cm of snow, that lasted just a few hours, it's like 97%gone now.

    Starlight Day 2017

    Brisbane CBD - King George Square

    15/05/17



    Was lucky enough to be able to troop with Starlight yesterday and help in raising money for Starlight Day. It's always a pleasure to be able to work with such and amazing Charity and do so with an amazing group of folks!



    And it was my Troop-iversary (I thank that's what our Garrison says), it was exactly one year ago to the day that I did my first troop as Vader at the 2016 Starlight Day and what a ride it's been!

    The change room wasn't half bad either since we scored Brisbane City Hall! There was a formal function on that morning and we just strolled in with our armour with everyone else in their suits and fancy dress. Also the Head Chef at City Hall found out we were in the building and took us on a really cool trip behind the scenes of the hall down two floor to meet the chefs since they were all Star Wars mad and dead set on getting some pictures! Not every day you get to do something like that either

    I've never had any decent video of me while I'm in my Vader, but as it turns out one of our wranglers filmed us exiting Brisbane City hall in the CBD at the troop earlier this month
    It's nothing especially spectacular but it's the first piece of video I have that isn't in potato quality or filmed in portrait so I'll take what I can get haha!

    Children's Hospital December November

    Brisbane CBD - South Bank

    18/06/17


    Another successful Redback Children's Hospital visit for the books today with some genuinely awesome troopers!
    Was a great and worthwhile troop as usual and better yet we were able to spread some Redback cheer through the wards to those who need it most
