    If I may, I would suggest meeting at the parade line up around 6:30 pm on 6th Avenue bewteen Spring and Broome Streets.

    There will be mobs of people but I am sure the star wars people will stand out.

    Hope to see you all at the parade!

    Me and the wifey will be missing things this year.
    With the wedding and stuff and just getting back, we've had no time to put things together and I'm sure we'll be beat by the end of the week. I don't think either one of us are adjusting back to NY time...LOL

    Hope you all have fun. and if any of you are near 14th and 3rd before 3pm that day...come say hi. :D

    I'm going to try to come! Who knows what I'll be, but I'll most likely be there.


    I will probably be Buffy again because its the easiest costume to just throw together.

    I don't know how I'm getting back. Wherever everyone ends up Dad can pick me up from I guess.


    You think you're the Queen of procrastination? I just decided Saturday to go, and just asked Dad if I could go yesterday (he said yes :)). lol


    Shawn can't come up this weekend since he was just here 2 weeks ago. He will be up in 16 days, but who is counting? :p

    Last year was so much easier lol

    I wish I could say the same about last year. :(


    Does anyone know if the parade has a "weapons" policy? Would I be allowed to carry around my stake? What about my faux (made from foamcore) crossbow?

    The lovely marie is correct, I was planning on meeting up with them before the parade, not sure when or where yet. lol.

    I'll most likely be taking the train into the city, and arriving at 33rd and 6th. Not sure on a time yet either, Thank god for days off :)

    Ed, sorry you won't be there, but maybe I'll stop by and congratulate you in person :)

    Due to a combination of scheduling conflicts and a rather unpleasant left-foot injury, Uncle George, a.k.a. "Bob Vila", will not be schlepping (or limping, for the matter) up 6th ave. this year. [face_plain]

    However -- any post-parade spot on the bill? Á la the Cutting Room last year? I'd wanna join youse guys then.

    Appologies to everyone. After getting out of work the previous 3 nights at 2:30AM, I was lucky to get out at a decent hour tonight and headed home for rest.

    Hope you all had a great time.

    Hey boys and girls. Sorry we lost ya. They made us turn toward 5th avenue and then we couldn't find everyone else. I was so tired though that we decided to just split and call it an early night. Hope everyone had a great time at the post-parade party.

    Hey guys... I'm kinda new here, but going by context clues (Dark Leia, Buffy, "Samantha"), I'm guessing that you guys were the group I marched with for a few blocks last night.

    I was dressed as ANH Solo - I wanted to thank you all for the warm welcome and the laughs as we were all jammed together.

    I have pics available, if anybody wants them.

    Again, thanks for the good time. It was a fun happening.

    I tried to go to the parade but saw the chaotic crowds and thought, "I don't think so." However, I did see someone dressed up as ANH Leia, which gave me a good laugh, since her hair looked a little funky (yeah, it's supposed to, but it wasn't that kind of funky--you know what I mean :p ).
