Has anyone heard if the "Star Wars and the Power of Costume" at the DIA is going to be a trooping event?
I went to the one in Cincinnati, it's pretty cool!
I think they trooped it down there.

They did not troop it in Cincy. Each museum decides by themselves if they wanted costumers there. LFL has nothing to do with it.

What happened to the event for the DIA on Thursday, June 7th? I remember signing up for it and it's even on my calendar (that's how I know it was there). Did it get canceled or something? I was planning on going tomorrow night (June 7th) and went to look on here for the post but it seems to have disappeared... Any help?

The original thread is linked in the post directly above yours. LFL said no go.

So clicking on the link says I'm not authorized to view the information. I was told and pretty sure that LFL has nothing to do with it. Each museum decides for them selves whether or not to have whatever group they want.

Also: they are for some reason closing today (June 7th) at 5pm - and interestingly enough - our event was scheduled from about 6-10pm. Some kind of party? That's what I have on my calendar, so IDK what happened there. What's going on there tonight at 6pm then? I can't find any info oddly enough.

LFL has everything to do with it as it is their costumes. The DIA needed their approval in order to do a troop. LFL only approved events for the opening night and opening night only.

This is what we were told by the DIA, so the event, as far as the Garrison and Base goes, was cancelled. The original private event is still happening, but without us.
