    Dust off your costumes and mark your calendars, folks! :D

    The 25th annual MidSouthCon will be held March 23-25 this year and, once again, it will be at the Airport Holiday Inn Select at Democrat and Airways.

    For anyone who has never been, MSC is a local Sci-Fi/Fantasy Con which features Gaming, various Panels/Discussions, an Art Show, Dealer room, Costume contest/Masquerade and, of course, the Dance Party on Saturday night.

    We are making plans to reserve a Suite, like we did several years ago, where Memphis and area FanForce folks can hang out. We will not be hosting a party, per se, but refreshments are welcome.


    More info coming soon. [face_peace]

    Having never been to a con, what do you do? A dance party sounds like fun!

    Kelly: There's a dance party on Saturday night at MSC that's always one of (if not the) high-point of the Con for most of us. I missed it last year because they scheduled the TFP midnight panel during it, which really miffed me. I told them this year that we'd do another late-night panel, but it'd have to be on Friday night.

    You and Robert should come this year. We always manage to have a good time thanks to our own geeky-chic style (and a lot of "social lubrication", if you know what I mean. :D )

    Libations do help those that are "dance challenged".:D

    I smell a change in the folks to the east. It seems there may be quite a presence at MSC this year. I think I heard rumblings of a certain droid making an appearance. Don't hold me to that, but I am going to work on the guys this weekend about it. I shall activate my Schmoo powers and see what magic I can weave.

    Just reserved a room so I don't have to drive back and forth. So I guess that means that I'm coming.

    See you guys in March.

    Trace...I'll be expecting dinner.

    BJ: Great! Dinner is a definite! :D

    Glad to hear it, Jai!

    I've got to decide what costume I'm going to do. Hopefully I'll have lost enough weight before March to do something cool.

    Oh, there'll be spandex for me this year, Hollie, fat or not. I finally figured out what costumes I want to do for this year.

    However, I'm working hard so I'll be in the "not" category! [face_dancing]

    Speaking of costumes, what is everyone wearing this year?

    I don't wanna be the only person in a Star Wars costume, lol.

    Trace: You won't be the only one in a Star Wars costume...thats the only kind I have...

    And I'll be choosing from the following:

    Pink Jedi (it's almost done)
    Generic Brown Jedi
    Female Tusken (It should be done by then)
    Blackhole Stormie
    or
    Padme's green gown from Sith (that one might not be done by then.)

    I'd reveal the Plaid Jedi, but I'm saving that one for C4...that and I've discovered that I DO NOT like sewing with plaid. What
    the kriffing hades was I thinking....I'll say one thing for printed fabrics that have to be matched at the seams...NEVER AGAIN!!!

    Looking forward to this Pre-C4 con happiness....That and you guys are so much freakin' fun to hang out with that I can't miss
    something so close to home.

    A plaid Jedi? That sounds great!! [face_laugh]

    I've still got Barriss Offee from a few years ago. I'd also like to make a Mara costume that isn't the traditional black catsuit. (I'm so sick of hearing about that damn catsuit over in the Lit forum, I could scream, LOL.) Maybe the green VotF cover outfit again or the costume that the Mini is wearing. I dunno.

    Hey guys.

    Sounds like fun, but of course I only have my Darth Robdog costume. I know Kelly & I need to fix it before C4.

    The plaid Jedi is my C4 costume creation:

    Picture this if you will

    Red plaid Jedi Tunic, Obi, and Tabbards.

    Dark blue jeans

    and

    either white sneakers or black cowboy boots with a sign that says

    "If George was a Jedi"

    Ain't it great...

    [face_laugh] I can't WAIT to see that, BJ!


    Change of plans - we think we're going to do The Incredibles as a family during the day on Saturday. I think I'll break out Magenta for Sat. night.

    (With that in mind, I've added another mile to my workout on the treadmill. [face_blush] )
