The couple that troops together, stays together! (If I adjust just a couple letters, that opening sentence becomes prettydarn funny) Get to know the husband and wife 501st duo of John and Lisa Duffy as they get a little press from the Savage Pacer of Minnesota. Excerpt below:
"The meeting happened in 2002 while each was at a convention. John struck a fancy with the fellow ?Star Wars? fan and the story began to write itself.
Courtship included getting Lisa to join John as a member of the 501st Legion, a worldwide group of volunteers who make appearances around the world dressed as ?Star Wars? characters. Along with the membership come the obligatory costumes.
?She didn?t have any costumes,? John said of his then-girlfriend. ?Now she has more than she needs, more than me.?
Their wedding in their home in Savage just over a year ago was a memorable one, as the bride, groom and guests were all in costume.
Lisa had a veil attached to her Stormtrooper helmet and John added a black bowtie to his black and white bad-guy suit."
UPDATE: For those who may be unaware, Jimmy Mac fills us in: "FYI - John Duffy is the infamous beer swillin' stormtrooper in The Force Among Us." Thanks Jimmy! First John Tentuto and now the Duffy's. Everyone in TFAU is getting some press this week. Next up, Dustin Roberts?
