    Break out the lightsabers and red spandex, MidSouthCon is almost upon us. :cool:

    You can check out the programming schedule and guest list [link=http://www.midsouthcon.org/index.html]here[/link]. Guests include some familiar names: Muley, Jetta, Bushi Tales and the naughty puppets from T*P.

    If you are a Holiday Inn Priority Club member, you can reserve your room online [link=http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/sl/1/en/cwshome/DPRD-78QKHR/MEMDR]here[/link]. Otherwise, call 1-800-287-0037, and be sure to ask for the MidSouthCon 26 group rate of $81 per night (group code - G74). I recommend reserving your room as quickly as possible because the hotel will sell out.

    We've all seen the pictures from the dance party last year, so make your plans to be there! [face_mischief] [face_dancing]

    EDIT: I'm punctuation-challenged this morning. [face_blush]

    I booked my room this morning, and the non-smoking rooms are getting hard to come by. I recommend you go ahead and reserve your room as quickly as possible.

    We got ours last weekend. I think it's going to be one hell of a Con!

    Con Update:

    TFP-LIVE! will be on at 11pm on Friday, March 28th, and will roll right into The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Midnight. From what I've been told, we'll be in Ballroom C (the ballroom next to where the Masquerade and Dance Party are always held).

    We're 30 days away, folks.

    Myself, Razorback Jedi, ForceConduit, and Kynstar will be there once again this year...

    (I just hope I don't have to jump the hotel staff again for giving me a room with a dining table in the middle of it....)

    But, you guys will have to be around when we do our Lobby Debut of our new "costume" thingy...

    It's cool... trust me.

    See you soon!!!!!

    I am SO going to this one. But speaking of which, does anyone have 4-5 yards of black fabric that they're not using? I need to make a replacement Jedi tunic for my [link=http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=88453]old purple one[/link] that I lost last year. (the one I wore to the episode III showing) I have some red fabric, so I'm alright for the duster, and I still have my Darth Maul belt. Just need to make the tunic.

    Grace: I have to laugh hysterically here... You know that I have about about a 1/4 mile of black fabric lying around right now. Give me a call and I'll hook you up.

    Can't wait to see you guys!!!! Also heard about your new Con in November on Force.Net. Ahh...Jedi Trace you know my weak spots for meeting the Original Trilogy Celebs!! To see Mark Hamill again (it's been 15yrs! ) and the others would rock!! I will definitely be there for that!!! I think Trace deserves a special spanking. QuiGon Tim do the honors buddy!!! See you all at Mid-South!!!

    Also, Trace I have a Qui-Gon Toy to bring you and Tim. It makes grunts and moans....I'll let you imagination roam!

    Later peeps!

    Oooooh, a Qui-Gon toy? I'm intrigued. [face_batting]


    No, that wasn't me. We've been checking around about that alleged event in November, but haven't found anything concrete yet. The promoter has attempted several cons (just from what we googled) and none of them have panned out. We'll have to wait and see what happens.


    See ya in a couple of weeks! :D

    Its supposed to be battle sounds. But, when he thrusts... It sounds like something completely different.

    Guess who pointed out that we should get it for you. It was really cheap on ebay.

    I could bring my "grunting Obi" and the could play together... It is Mid-South Con after all.

    See you guys soon!!! I've got alcohol!!!!!

    Gah, for some reason I'm really anxious for the con to get here. Probably because I've been absolutely miserable and I think I need this con.

    Joy and I have decided to pimp the RPG she will be running Saturday by wearing t-shirts announcing it. But I'll probably still wear Orochimaru makeup + wig along with it so I won't feel so costume-less. [face_laugh] I'm hoping to get Tom to come at some point as well. I think he'd enjoy himself, and besides he loves hanging around you guys. He was actually asking when our next get-together was going to be because he's been going stir crazy lately.

    Another MSC survived, and hopefully fun was had by all.

    I haven't had a chance to upload pictures yet, but I looked at them this morning. [face_mischief]
