    Kell- if there are pics from a con's costume contest you're gonna be in there somewhere! I swear, I just saw three other pics of you from San Diego! A Mara Jade, Slave Leia, and Parade Padme- that's not including the one you were wearing when I saw you there!

    Todd, you've got to go even if it's just Saturday. You can cut out early if you need to.

    Kev, we need to take cake this time!

    w00t!! Finally got a room, and it's only a block away from the con! So who's all going? This is my first year and I'm moving out to Alabama in 2 days :( None of my friends are going + I doubt I'll know anyone at Auburn that's going. We should meet up or something! ONLY 24 DAYS! BWAHHHH

    I have friends from Phoenix City AL who are going. If you want to come over to Yodasnews I can introduce you, Gooshy.

    They are also part of the Columbus. GA FanForce, so you could go see if anyone is awake on their boards, but I think they all started moving their conversation to YN.

    Feel free to stop by our table as well. Depending on how much help we get, I may be chained to it as the rules say we have to have someone there all the time. That's ok. I don't have a room yet, so just please walk over my comotose body and try not to kick too hard.

    And Nightmarez is going to take some more convincing, I think... [face_devil]

    I had a great time! It was nice to see Kell and Ash there (only two people I actually knew, lol) and a couple of their friends! All of their costumes were great! Come to think of it I've never seen Kell without a costume on, lol. I met a lot of 501st people that were cool from different areas around the country as well as members from the Southern Outpost that I've only talked to on the forums. I didn't have a chance to take many pictures, actually only three, but I had a fun time! Hopefully I'll be able to have some more free time next year and stay the whole time. Can't wait to see some pictures from the con!

    Here are a few photos that a member from the Golden Gate Garrison (Karen Louie) took. Only six of the thousands that I'm sure will pop up in the next few days.

    Front of the 501st Parade with Red Cross Trooper leading:

    Group Photo of the Southern Outpost( Kell is sporting her Starfire costume, while I don my TK outfit somewhere in there. Your guess is as good as mine ):

    I liked this photo, I believe the Anakin is a member of the Southern Outpost but I only know him as ROTS_Anakin

    Those are awesome pics!! Haha I'm hiding behind Ash's helmet at the RL table :D

    The weekend was a huge blur. Totally fun. I won't recover for at least a week.
    Our pics are [link=http://www.yarwood.org/kell/dcon05/]here[/link]! Here's some of my favs though...

    Gaaaah I feel so short, LOL :) My new Leia costume along with Matt's Chewbacca.

    Our masquerade costumes... Stitch is the secret project I've been working on for a while. Totally proud of the way he came out.

    Now I get to concentrate on non-costume stuff for a while, lol.

    LOL, the Stitch is awesome, Kell. I bet Ash had a fun time in that! I'm thinking about making a really nice FF7 or FF8 costume for the next con, maybe Midsouth Con or MTAC, Last time I went to MTAC was when Tiffany Grant (American voice actress for Asuka from Evangelion, my fav character and anime) was there. I'm going to wait until Advent Children is released before I decide. I know they are overused, but FF7 is like.. my favorite game of all time. I would like to do one of the Silver Haired Men from Advent Children or Reno. I would like to do Yazoo, but Kadaj is awesome and more important (don't want to spoil anyone). Yazoo has a gunblade which is one of my favorite weapons in the FF games. It'll be my first cosplay costume so I might need some help when I come back in town if anyone would like to :)

    [image=http://yarwood.org/kell/dcon05/dcon198.jpg]
    Thats me on the right! Yay

    hi everybody! i had a great time this weekend. and i would like to point out that i was forced into THREE costumes this weekend. of course, it's hard not to wear one of kell's beautiful creations!

    since i didn't win a prize in the droid contest (after stalking storm troopers from the southern outpost!), i'm not sure i'll be joining the 501st. that was our agreement, if i got a prize, i'd join! ;) plus, the rebel legion costumes are prettier!

    anyway, i had a great time, & i'm glad everyone enjoyed our skit. ash was SO amazing!
