    Buffalo has just had an event been requested for this day, so we will unfortunately not be able to attend. We hope everyone has a good time and will be waiting to see the pictures from the parade.

    I will not be walking in this Parade afterwards though I would like to come later or possibly before to give anyone who needs a hand getting into costume. Though there is the possibilty I may be called to work that weekend as well.

    I think we should work out a costume list as soon as we can. If the organizers wants us to be better organized and better looking we should work on canon/recognizable costumes and no duplicates of characters. I know we have several Jedi at any time, but we only need one vader, one Boba, etc. Anyone who saw the Rose Parade earlier this year knows what I mean.



    Our list so far:

    Roy SL 829 - Snowtrooper
    Nick TC 5986 - Clone Trooper
    Graeme BH 8311 - Boba Fett
    Rob TB 392 - Biker Scout

    Several more tentative (Clonetroopers/Stormtroopers)

    Graeme and I may also have a Tusken costume available for someone without one.

    edit: my mistake jay, i got your facebook message and it's changed

    Speaking of which, I may require the use of a female/generic costume if anyone has one available.

    September 29th is the day after my birthday, but I'll be there, and perhaps a few others from London as well.

    As usual, I'll be dressed as Jocasta Nu. I finally have my costume 100% done, and it looks very good now! (too bad I don't have an impressive lightsaber yet.)

    Are we still doing the pot-luck lunch?

    My brother and I will both be attending as Jedi. As for Shelby, she may be a Jedi as well, but for now her costume is TBA.

    I'm going to bring my plus one along.
    Brian doesn't have a Star Wars costume, so he can help with the parade, or someone else can toss him into so random costume if they'd like.

    If people need costume parts, I have a Jar Jar mask and a green robe that go well together for "Senator Jar Jar", a few Darth Maul masks (one with a hooded cloak attached) and a Darth Maul lightsaber that cannot be used for dueling (it falls apart) and I might be able to get an Emperor Palpatine robe (ROTJ) finished. It's half done now.

    I'm assuming we'll be meeting at the Mason Hall to change same as last year?

    So there will be a vehicle in the parade? I was just thinking about how to supply bottled water to marchers during the parade. Usually that was in the truck...

    I'm also assuming that YJN will be collecting donations towards food and hall rental again?
