    Well, with all the fun stories I told them at our meeting this weekend, they are all sufficiently jealous and should be going to C4 next year. Although I failed to mention SOME of the details. ;) (In my pants!) [face_laugh]

    I'll PM Dale, but I just fixed her photo since I was going through the entire CD anyway and fixing pics for the web site. So no need for Dale to bother.

    The first rough cut edition of the SF Fan Force album is online (I'm waiting for a few more members to get me their photos before I finalize it).

    http://sffanforce.com/gallery/comic-con06/index.htm

    Enjoy! Thanks to everyone who contributed photos and manned various cameras throughout the course of the event (I know Rachel took a ton of the photos on all our cameras).

    If there is anyone other than Rachel who has photos they'd like to contribute let me know.

    By the way, this one cracked me up every time I came by it as I was building the gallery:

    [image=http://sffanforce.com/gallery/comic-con06/exhibit_hall/images/102_3664.jpg]

    And I think this one of Amy Allen is really cute. What a good sport! (but why didn't you guys invite me to this!!! Poor webmaster is feeling a bit left out :( )

    Also, I know guys like Slave Leia - but this girl really should do an Ep I Padme costume if she has not already. Her face really reminds me of the younger Natalie Portman.

    It looks like you guys had a blast!! I'm sorry I had to miss it. Maybe next year, I'd rather go to this than C4... ;)

    Carrie Fisher looks great too! I'm glad to see her looking well. How was she in person?

    Our encounter with Carrie was pretty quick. They really kept the line moving. We were waiting in line before she arrived, and when she walked by us she kind of stared at the 3 of us in our Leia costumes. My friend waved and she waved back. Apparently Anne said she heard her say she liked our costumes when we got to her table, but none of us in costume heard her say that at all. She was pleasant, but really didn't say anything other than "How do you spell that" when we asked her to make the autographs out to us. Heck, at least she bent her 'no photo rule' for us and actually kind of hugged my friend Sister_Sola.

    I think someone dressed as Ayla Secura actually got a good reaction from Carrie and more than a "Is that with a Y?". I believe they told us she said she really was impressed with her costume and commented on the Lekku.

    I forgot her name, but her and her dad (Michael?)were three doors down :p from us at the Omni. Everytime we came and went, they did too. He works for Hasbro and was her personal bodyguard at CC :) On that Friday, we all went into the elevator and her costume broke. Her string broke on her Bikini :p Luckily it was in the elevator and on their way back to the room. Her dad was joking, if it happened outside, there would be pictures posted of her all over the internet by the time we reached our floor hahaha :D

    Wow, Kathy! Whoever took those pictures must be some sort of professional photographer or something, I mean, the composition, the lighting... (j/k).

    But back to our "slave girl". I think her name was Sarah or Zara (?). I can't recall exactly, because I was too busy looking at her face (yes, her face). It wasn't until after I'd taken a picture with her, that I realized why I was looking at her face: Natalie Portman! I mean, even the mole on her left cheek is in the same place. Creepy (but still hot!) :p But I did recommend her to submit her photo to www.leiasmetalbikini.com.


    Let's just test that theory shall we:

    Elton, my good man, WHY didn't you get me to get stuck in that elevator with her? I had a whole roll of quick fix-it tape that I was just waiting to use that weekend. ;)

    While we're on the subject of Natalie, I bought the 2-disc edition of "V For Vendetta" today. I was watching the featurette on the "new age" of comics. Take a look at the background behind the people being interviewed. It looks oddly famliar. [face_thinking]


    Sorry about not contacting you about the photos of Daniel and Amy, Kathy. We had to do it quickly, when there was a short break between autographs. I was shocked when I asked her to take a photo holding up the shirt, when she volunteered to actually put it on, doing various poses! I was like =P~ .

    Oh, and I still need to get you pictures from "Superman Returns" & "Pirates" too.

    Wow, cool dad not to mind his daughter dressing as Slave Leia. I was going to say, she looked young (hence reminding me more of epI Padme I think), but then again StarSmuggler looks young and she's 18.

    There's an article on Comic-Con in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly (Samuel L. Jackson cover) about what's coming out in 2007. The article may bother 501st members because it shows a trooper witht the wrong blaster and shoes! FYI, next year also marks the 25th anniversary of E.T., Blade Runner, and The Dark Crystal. I also caught a blurb that tomorrow night that Access Hollywood would have footage as well.

    Anyone with Tivo? Tonight they're showing "Star Wars vs. Star Trek", and I was interviewed at Comic-Con by someone asking me which was better, but I'm not sure if this is it. Can someone record it anyway?
