    How about talking to some of the 501st people and see what they are doing for their party? If someone is bringing any of that, maybe we can borrow it from them. Just a thought.

    Favor, if you're planning on attending please order tickets before Monday morning. Our food order is due Monday and I don't want to over/under order food. Even if you plan to pay at the door a quick email saying that's your plan would be greatly appreciated. Right now we are just shy of 200 people attending (celeb guests and paid tickets together). This is going to be HUGE!

    I'll be there for a little bit. I got the dual ticket for the ForceCast party (Thank you Dajuan for that option!), so I'll be there before I run off to the other party. I'm going to be busy!

    Looking forward to seeing you guys!

    Skinnee, you made my day with that comment. You really did :D

    We got a lot of orders yesterday, yay! I think I finally cleared out my inbox this morning so everyone should have heard back from me. In a few minutes I'll be posting another update with more celebs and activities!

    Oh my gosh! Got all the raffle items together last night as well as pictures, working on the descriptions & getting them into a document of some kind so we can show them off.

    One more X-wing to get out the door this AM for s65horsey and I'm done w/ all 10, never doing that again.

    Can't wait to meet as many of you as possible, in the past we were always in costumes or in the room changing, this con we are taming it down :D

    Yes, you responded really really quickly to my e-mail, which is cool considering how extremely busy you must be. All the work you've put into the party is definitely appreciated. I'm really looking forward to the party because I know it will be great!

    Ok, I have a question...lol.

    I would love to attend, however I need to know pricing here. It would be myself, my hubby and our three kids...5,4,2. Do I have to pay $150 for all of us, or only $60 for the husband and I. My kids will prolly make me bug out within the first hour...lol.

    Thank ya!

    Depends on the ages of your kids. :)

    Tickets for kids are $25 for ages 6-12, and kids under 6 get in free with an adult.

    Very cool then.

    My kids are all under the age. They did not need a CV ticket either. Great, that saves me a bundle! Thanks!

    Perfect! When you order your tickets, just make sure you tell Dajuan you will be bringing your kids so she has an accurate head count.

    What Grimby said :) We have started to add some more kid-friendly things to our activities list. We have a make-up artist who is doing face-painting and temp tattoos. Adults have to pay, but we're going to give the kids a $5-7 whatever on the house. Mom and dad are welcome to upgrade that if they wish ;)

    Kina, my goal is to respond to emails within 24 hours of receiving them, if not sooner. People are often wary when sending a stranger money (rightfully so) and I think a quick turn-around puts them more at ease. Plus I have the world's greatest crew helping out with things so it's a lot easier and more enjoyable :)



    A few minutes ago we officially hit the 200 people mark. [face_dancing] :D :cool:

    Hey I'd love to attend the party...it would be my brother and I. Will there be a spot to give money to you down there? My wife is very pregnant...so there is a slim chance she might have it early...resulting in our not attending cv...

    Wow. Not to mention that we have to consider that some people will may walk up and buy tickets in the hall. Should we cap the attendance or do they really have enough room for everyone? What kind of capacity do they have?

    It sounds like they could accommodate us even if we had a thousand people. However, if we had even half that we'd need to reconsider some of the arrangements like the sound equipment and food, which is not something we can realistically do the day of or the day before the party. So we'll need to have a realistic head count ahead of time, which could mean putting a cap on the attendance at some point.

    We're just outside of 300 people attending. This is going to be big!

    Food has been ordered, but we can update the order closer to the event. We may not get exactly what we ordered but it will be something. Here's what I ordered:

    Balsamic Fig and Goat Cheese Flat Bread
    Mini Pizzas
    Swedish Meatballs
    Veggie Spring Rolls
    Chicken Tenders
    Mini Cuban Sandwiches
    Veggie Trays
    Fruit Trays

    The goal was to have something that would appeal to a wide variety of people, including vegetarians and vegans. Hopefully I succeeded.

    We should have another update with new Celeb guests some time this afternoon.

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly when I ordered my ticket. I accidentally deleted the email that had my ticket number, but I'm assuming my name will be on a list somewhere so I'm not worried.

    This is going to be great!

    It is on a list, but if you email me again I can forward the number to you. No big deal :)

    Finally got around to ordering my ticket a few days ago- looking forward to it. :)

    Is there wifi access there, btw? Only asking cause my only mobile way of e-mail/web access while at the con will be through an ipod touch.

    (come to think of it, as an aside- does the convention center itself have a wifi hot spot too?)
