    Hey guys, yep, time to dust the costumes off and have some fun and raise money for charity again ;)

    I received this Pm requesting our help. Is anyone interested in this? As you can tell by the PM its calling for very movie specific cosutmes. If anyone with these costumes would like to attend please post here.

    We could also use a few non cosutmed help to man the table or assist with the costumed help.

    :)

    any help here would be hot [face_dancing]

    LMAO I forgot to cut and paste!

    Dear Strawberry,
    Annually I host a Halloween event that benefits the American Diabetes Association. This years event, here in Auburn, New York, will run November forth and Fifth. The teme is Movie Mayhem. Amung our guests this year are three of the only surviving oompa loompas from Willie Wonks and the Chocolate Factory. Together they make two ewoks and a Jawa from Rturn Of The Jedi. So they will be appearing inscenery from both movies. I am in need of volunteers to dress for me as chracters from Return of the Jedi to work Friday November 4th from 5-9PM and Saturday November 5th from 12-9PM.

    So are they only looking for RotJ costumes?
    The ones I can think of are:

    KnightShade - Chewbacca
    HothGirl - Boussh or General Leia
    DarSolo - Ewok Celebration Leia
    TB-2709 - Biker Scout
    Star-Wars-Freak-JPB - Han Solo (I think he's ESB version though)
    Plus we have a couple stormtroopers

    We're hoping to have a couple more biker scouts here in Rochester, but I'm not sure when. I think everyone else we have is prequel trilogy.

    There's also Han Solo, Darth Vader, Royal Guards, a Biker Scout and the Emperor from North Ridge that would be RotJ costumes.

    Thanks Nicky.

    Im hoping we can get a few volunteers here from syracuse too *hint hint*

    Honestly I dont think any of us have any ROTJ Costumes..... *sighs* I dont even have time to put one together either *sobs* damn working for a living puts a damper on my geeky hobbies LOL ;)

    At anyrate I appreciate any help you guys can give......
    We may just have to have our Syracuse clan work in SCJ shirts and help with the event.

    I always wanted to make a Luke costume. It always seemed fairly simple (minus the saber and boots). I'll see what I can do.

    Woman's costumes from ROTJ:

    Twi'lek/Rodian dancers/singers
    Fat dancer
    Oola
    Sy Snootles (impossible)
    Boush
    Slave Leia
    Rebel Uniform Leia - with/without helmet and poncho
    Mon Mothma
    Ewok Village Leia
    Ewoks

    I think that's it. Not a lot of selection, though I've thought about making a rebel uniform. Not that I'll be able to go, it's too far away for me.

    I believe we're still free. Was that Nov 4th or 5th?
    Although KnightShade's Chewie is actually Episode III - I don't think anyone would notice. ;) I don't have a ROTJ costume myself though...

    FYI - I started a thread for this event over on The Rebellion boards as well.

    We're eyeing trying to participate some time on Saturday but probably not for the full 12pm-9pm that the event is running.

    I'd be willing to help out, but I don't have an RotJ costume, and don't have the resources to complete my Rebel Pilot in time. So, shirted assistant is probably all I'd hope to do :D

    I've heard back from the organizer on this that she is willing to take Star Wars costumes from any of the SW movies - not just ROTJ. I need to submit a head count for this on the 27th, so if you're interested in volunteering please post here or on The Rebellion boards so I can submit your name. Please include which costume you'll be wearing as well.

    The event is 11am-6pm on Sat the 5th. I don't think we'll be in costume the entire time though. But we will be getting a catered dinner at the end. :D

    EDIT: I forgot to mention - she'd really like to see a Vader there. She wanted me to check with Strawbary to see if her costume could attend.

    Hmmm...I've been poked . I hate to wait till the last minute to commit for things, but I guess I'll give a "We'll see" to this one. Back to back Saturdays can be hectic and since my wife doesn't participate, I don't want her feeling we're always gone. Plus Saturday mornings are generally busy with a schedule obligation each week. Someone will let you know for sure when we know for sure.

    I believe myself, raef, and Arjuna won't be there. At one time we were considering it, but since we went to the Halloween parade last week, I would say this is out for this week. Neither Raef nor Arjuna are here at the present, but I think Arjunas post saying he would be there was confusion over last week's event. In any case, I DO know he has to work tonight and from 5:30-11:00 tomorrow night.
