Andy and Heather did a fantastic job on this show. I had a great time vending and talking with people, the day just flew by. Thanks for including picture of my robots, you’re awesome 🙂
OddMall was a blast. As a member of the Star Wars Costuming Groups (501st and Mandalorian Mercs), we were glad to come out and enjoy the day with everyone. What an amazing event to have in Akron!
