Welcome to the Legion!

Well, hello there, Legion! We’re back! The podcast had to take a hiatus, between my better half heading off to London for Star Wars Celebration (where his short film Star Wars: The Sable Corsair won the audience choice award), San Diego Comic-Con, a trip to Austin for the film Hell or High Water and general life stuff. Now that that’s behind us, we’re back on schedule! On this week’s Legion of Leia Podcast episode 46, my co-hosts Anastasia WashingtonSabina Ibarra and I welcome award-winning designer Camille Falciola! Her Marauder’s Map dress (won by recent podcast guest Alicia Marie) won the audience choice award at the Her Universe fashion show down at the con! She’s also working on a very cool web series called Remain Calm. (We’ve included the trailer below.)

This week we’re talking all about the show and doing a post-mortem on the convention. We learn all about how Camille made the map appear and disappear on the dress, which is absolutely fascinating! (As someone who can’t even sew a button on, this actually sounds like Harry Potter magic!). We also take on the Pokemon Go updates, which are a nightmare, the absolutely insane Suicide Squad petition to shut down Rotten Tomatoes because some fanboys/fangirls are weeny whiney babies, and a lot more!

Check out the trailer and some amazing photos below (image credits at the bottom of the page) and scroll down to listen to this week’s podcast! Follow Camille on Twitter @mikafalciola and @frakkinfrocks, as well as the web series @remaincalmtv. You can also check out her Instagram at @mikafalciola @frakkinfrocks and @remaincalmseries. You can follow her electrical engineer (yes, for the dress!) Rick Mann on Twitter @jetforme and her graphic designer Mack Murdoc on Instagram @mackmurdoc!

May the Force be with you!
