Discussion in 'Niagara, ON' started by Yebbed-Crage, Jul 11, 2007.
I'd like to make it out. I think I actually will again this year.
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.
(*sorry to hear that Chris, you and your group will be missed)
Well I guess we should start getting a head count.
We will need to know how many and what costume they are wearing.
*green = walking in Parade
*red = showing but not walking in parade
Nick - Clone Trooper
Graeme - Boba Fett
Stephanie Cooper - Padme (blue nightgown from Episode 3)
Jay - Darth Vader
Paul - Jedi
Tessa - Barbie Jedi
Dan - SandTrooper
Sam - Royal Guard
Roy - Snowtrooper (+ 5-6)
Rob - Biker Scout
Janet - Jocasta Nu
Tom - TIE Pilot or Imperial Crewman
Scott - Tusken Raider
Glitch - Anakin
Dean - Episode III Obi-Wan
Jeff - Han Solo
Already posted, but I will be there. My brother Devon and my girlfriend Shelby will most likely be there in costume as well.
Dan and myself in costume. Although I still need to figure out what I am gonna do with the kids...
I'll be there not sure about Crystal yet?
My self & at least few others are coming from Rochester
T_StarFlyer ^ is in the head count that I PM'd to you YoungJediNiagara (just so you don't count him twice).
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.
My Gang is all interested in coming, and at least 3 of us marching
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.
I'll be attending as Darth Vader . If you dont want doubles I know Roy has a Tie pilot costume I hope he doesn't mind.
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?
Daniel TD2519 SandTrooper
Samantha ID2518 Royal Guard (and if it's not more finished then now.. then Imperial officer)
List updated.... ^^^^^^
Please let me know if I forgot anyone.
If you have not said what costume you are wearing, please let me know also.
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 plan to be there with my mini red droid
UPdate: Argh just checked my schedule and I already have something planned that day
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.

Anyone staying behind to look after kids... would make being in the parade easier... ...
I will come! but this is my first time i just need to find out the time and where we are meeting in St.catharines and any other details that i might need and I would LOVE to do this cause i have a costume. just send the details to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
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?
True enough... it is coming up fast... need to list up the details...
Sorry forgot to post this here too. This is from the facebook site...
Oh...and we do not have a vehical in the parade this year.
