    I have no earthly idea at this point. I kind of doubt it, since I'll be working somewhere else by then.

    i don't have a room.. hopefully I can stay with someone from 501st or something (not that I can't pay for a room, just that I don't know if there are any vacancies). I'm going all by myself. $5 down I get lost, lol.

    We're locking Nightmarez up and forcing him to be chained to the table at DragonCon. The plan is to have some stuff available for kids to treat him like one of those giant Barbie heads. He just doesn't know it yet. [face_devil]

    Fans himself.

    Oh, please don't. I'm still recovering from the last body painting pics. That Mara Jade one was just too hot for words.

    I think they are having an NC-17 constume contest this year so it is fair to the normally clad cosplayers.

    I just hope it's more painted hot women than leather clad S&M rancor keepers or anything!

    Yikes- glad I skipped lunch!

    Oh, yeah!

    Pretty much just a bikini/thong bottom and body paint!

    (Man, why can't I get one of those gigs?!)

    Man I was watching The Muppet Movie the other night and got all excited remembering how cool the Muppet band was!!! That was seriously one of the most awesome things I've ever seen.
    I'm in those masquerade pictures somewhere... looking like I hadn't slept in a week (which I probably hadn't!). The masquerade pics from last year look weird, they've all got a blue cast to them, which made my costume look blue instead of rainbow coloured :p

    I'm SO excited for this year!! I'm planning a new Leia costume too... as soon as I get back from Comic Con I have to get my plane tickets...

    Pining leads to spending even more time on the computer.
    Spending time on the computer leads me to Instant Messaging.
    Chatting with Brother-in-law who is part of the problem regarding that weekend leads me to reconsider...
    Maybe it is important enough to me to drive all night...
    TWICE...
    So, is anyone interested in going to Dragon Con with me for one day?
    Drive all night Friday night--have a blast at the Con and then drive all night Saturday night to get back--or maybe Sunday morning if we need some sleep?

    jacob - that actually sounds like a really good idea. i'm up for that, if you'd like me to go. i'll probably have to do a similar thing on my own if it wouldn't work out me traveling with you.

    Just clean out the van and make a night of it in there sleeping!!

    If you two guys come down, be sure to hunt Lin and I up, and Steve Stanley of course. you'll know us: We'll be the guys with the monster fighting women, wonderful art, and the mule.

    That, plus you know us already...

    Well, for me it is still a maybe--I won't be sure I can do it for a while, but if I go, I would love for you to come with me, Elliott. My brother-in-law (part of the problem that was keeping me from going) might come too. We could take at least one more if we take the Van.

    One day at the con costs $30.
