They don't LARP, they're an Action Theater and Stunt Troupe. They provide stage fighting, fire performance and aerial acrobatic tuition, displays and stunts. They are employed by movie theaters when Star Wars movies are released, Renn Fayres, festivals and the like. the also provide weapon petting zoos.

On May 4th, they should have been working at the two main movie theaters here, but all is cancelled. So they did this instead. They also did a regular isolation stunt fight reel.

Yes, the weapons they use for historic pieces are generally real, and they go places like libraries, youth groups and festivals and have the weapons out on a table where people can touch them, hold them, learn about their uses and history.....

The light sabers they use for live performances are also pretty neat, but there was no way to distribute them for this gig

Not long after beest died (it was a thing they did together), I took Thunderboy to their gig at a downtown store for free comic book day. They were entertaining the line (they do comic heroes too) and had the petting zoo table out and an elderly non-English speaking couple came by and wanted to buy a few of the weapons and could not understand they were not for sale and started offering more and more cash (but still nowhere near what they were worth) and getting really angry -the line thought it was all part of the show. The table is generally staffed by the lower rungs of the organization who don't yet have specified characters, but as the couple got more and more excited, one by one Captain America, Zorro and a couple of better known anime characters had to come and join the "discussion". It died down when the store finally started moving the line through and the couple just sort of got moved along with them
