    Excellent, will keep an eye open for the it.

    If I had a sith costume i could be a sith but mine wont be ready until next year cos i'm aiming to have it done for C-IV, even then it'll be a kilted sith costume.

    I'm going to have to improvise a sci fi costume just to man the booth.

    Umm.. I went through this entire thread, and there's no location or general vicinity of where it is.

    And being in October I'll pull my chips in for both days.

    Would anybody like to help me with my costumer? I'm going to go as my avatar; "Darth snuggles" with oriental dark blue robes, and I'm looking to borrow a red saber.

    I think it'd be a great Youtube flick to be owned by the cutest and freshest smelling sith lord in the galaxy.


    Aboutasith, we should all set up a sunday (or any other) prior to the event to lock in some choreo routines, so this way we don't look like idiots or have people asking why the fights were so short because we free-styled it.

    Well, at the last realy for life, I did Dark Side/Sith with just my grey robes, and the year before I did Jedi with the same robes, so I guess I can do either side that needs more fighters at the time of. As for Jedi/Sith names, my jedi name is Mathu Tilard (creative, uh?) My sith name is Darth Tempius, though I may change it to Exar Tempius, just to be different. And I can do both days as of now.

    Alexander:

    I spoke with Smudge earlier today. Combat will be the same as we did for Relay for Life. Wounds do not count. Only kills in the main chest/stomach area will count. No back or backside shots will count either. This will make combat a little longer.

    Just for you Alex. http://www.renaissanceinfo.com/galactic/ I'm pretty sure that's the one.

    Ah, Google. Live it, love it, learn it.

    Not that I want to discourage you, but remember that your vision will be greatly diminished by having a big bear mask on your head. Ask anybody in the 501st. Those guys have fairly big eye pieces and they still need people to escort them from time to time. I would think doing sword combat in such a costume would be even more difficult.

    With that said, it definitely would be interesting to see a giant bear fighting with a lightsaber.

    Yep, that's the site. I assumed people had seen it already on the upcoming events. Do'h!

    Tis Corona.

    As for the battle, i'll leave that to the OCSA to choreo. I'll tell anybody that's interested in joining in the battle that they need to come in here and get with the OCSA, we dont want some random person running in a braining everyone.

    Just found out that I have an important meeting for Church that I can't miss on Saturday morning, Oct. 7, but I will be
    free by 1:15pm and will get there as soon as I can. The lightsaber battle is in the evening, so I should get there around
    3:00pm. I hope that will not be a problem?

    I got a black Gi, and finding some khaki's and boots.

    Ummm...Erik, that is pretty close to flamming. Unless of course you meant it as a joke. If so, then be sure to say so. Remember that we DO NOT insult each other here. If you want to do that, do it in a PM or email....not on the boards.

    Nah dude its just friendly banter. EriK knows this little foot solder fought his way through the giants to slay the king.

    I'm the type to run head on out in front of the line and mow them down. Plus I have more energy to run, I'm not wieghted by my huge chest and stomach plate. :p

    Flamming is how smudge accesorize his pirate bandana with his leather gloves and an S&M whip, that's flamming.

    Plus, I was kinda asking for it with my,
    It was a quick banter, not an essay on my believed lack of skill.

    Its all good Erik, I'll make you pay- I mean see you tonight.
    I'll cross my swartz with you any day. ;)
