    Since the Amy Allen shirt is a no-go I would like to reiterate to anyone thinking of going that isn't into comics, manga and anime- I don't think you're going to like this. The $15 admission is high and I don't think there will be a whole lot for you to do, aside from meeting Ms. Allen.

    You have been warned, twice.

    Padawan and I are still interested in going, and while the T-shirt would be nice (and we still can get it to her) that's why I came up with the award...as a backup plan.

    Don, we'll still meet you in the front of the convention around 4:30. Say "hi" to Amy...get a picture, offer to send her the shirt (once it comes in) as part of our her status as "Honorary Jedi Master".

    I figure, "meet and greet" with Amy...get a picture for the website, and the basic idea can still work.

    We just got back from the convention, and here's the latest:

    Don met us there, and we spent a couple minutes talking with Amy. She LOVED the award, and the idea of being considered an "Honorary Jedi Master"...and she wants us to send her her t-shirt (as soon as possible). We took some pictures of us with her, and of her with the award (looks like we've got another page to add to the website)

    We'll have to see if Amy would be so kind as to send us a pic of her in the t-shirt (not just the t-shirt, random... sick puppy) that we can post on the website.

    Hey, I'd be perfectly content to see a picture without the shirt too. ;)

    That's why I'm the one with her buisness card! I can have my small "moment of glory" at having the hottest girl in SW "give me her phone number"...but I'm not going to get carried away (I've got another Amy to consider) [face_love]

    *ahem* Which one of us did Ms. Allen say she remembered meeting before?




    Oh yeah, that was me. :cool:




    As for the show itself, like Emily said, it was very small. Talking with Amy again was nice, and my friend Koop gave me some good deals on comics so meeting him was nice, but this was definately not worth $15 to get in. In fact both Amy and Koop were saying they regretted coming; it was an anime crowd, not comics or Star Wars. Or, as one of the three or four comics dealers told me, costumes don't have pockets. (Anime fans like dressing in costume.)

    It was cool just talking with her for a couple minutes. She mentioned that she recognizes familiar faces (from other cons). It'd be nice to think she remembers Emily and myself (the "brother and sister" act that we are).

    Like I said, I'm glad she was honored to recieve the award (and eventual t-shirt) and be considered one of us.

    I prefer to think of it as she attended three (four now) conventions I was at. :p
