    Seems like not a whole lot goes on in this forum, surely there are a lot more SW fans in the area.

    Question is, how does one go about rallying the troops? It'll probably be easier when it gets closer to release day.

    Ah yes, the Jango costume is nearing completion. I should be getting my helmet this week and I'll be re-conditioning it. Speaking of which, a boo-boo was made and I'll be getting two Don Post boba fett helmets. So if you know of anyone in the area that wants to take one of them off my hands, it goes for retail value.
    The armor is all complete and my wife is in the process of making my vest.
    I hope to have it looking really good for the release, is anyone else planning on doing an episode II costume for the release?

    Nice!!! The official site has a few new jango pictures in the databank. I like the one piece effect with the chest plate and shoulder armor. I don't think Boba's was that way-

    I think Boba's outfitt was to resemble the wear and tear of years of bounty hunting....

    I hope SW/fans in Houston can get things together before EpII opens....

    hello all,
    this is my first post here. just thought i'd check in. i'm in the north houston area around fm1960. my wife and i were planning on dressing up as jedi (as we did for episode 1) and seeing ep2 at midnight wednesday night! we were at the amc 30 near baybrook. i thought we had the best chance of getting in there because it's the amc with the most screens! anyway, if we can make any of your meetings, that would be great. i'll keep checking these boards. by the way, did anyone here dress up for the mfah costume contests they had outside foley's last summer? just wondering if there's anyone here i would recognize. talk with you later!

    Hey there!
    I live near that AMC 30 you went to. And yes, I did dress up at MFAH. For the opening and I won most creative costume in my stormtrooper armor. I dressed up in my Fett costume at the First Colony mall semi-finals and took first place. At the finals, I had the choice of which costume and I picked the Fett since it was all home-made, but I didn't even place. There was another stormtrooper and Fett, I figured on Fett since it had some personality, but I can only guess that me and the other Fett cancelled each other out. If I had worn the trooper armor, I'm sure he and I would have cancelled each other out. You may have met him at the foley's semi-finals.
    Also, remember that on April 27 there is going to be a sci-fi convention. Let's all plan on being there.

    it's great to hear from you guys. i'll see if i can make that sci-fi convention. is that the next time all of you will be meeting together? are you planning any midnight toy runs when the new sw stuff is released? --- yeah, we didn't win place at the woodlands or willowbrook foley's we went to, but it was still fun. later!
