    Why don't you build one? You have enough time (well, time is never enough)? It's not like you don't have the resources available to you to ask for help. Besides, if you want to do a jedi it's not like the patterns are not available and we've all made one, help is not far away.

    We can help you build a custom hilt but you should really talk to Will or "pelatrin" about making a custom hilt!

    looks like the DSG will have a couple of people that are not gonna make it to the San Diego Comic Con. So a couple of them are going to make it to this event..it is unknown as to who it will be and what armor they will be wearing.

    [face_whistling] I know it's been about two weeks, but I just noticed that you guys were trying to get me to respond about the Qui-Gon boots and the T for Tiberius (btw did the R in James R Kirk stand for anything??? :), and yes I was just teasing Mr. Wookiee, and yes I knew VERY well that the T is for Tiberius, and I did not want a Kenner lightsaber because I'm not sure what you are talking about (I do have a kinda large plastic lightsaber with a plastic green blade, but the one Mugen helped me make is way cooler!)
    If I ever seem to be 'ignoring' posts and you're wanting me to notice them and respond, just PM me, I'll notice O:)
    I probably won't be able to come to this event...the parents only want to come down to Tucson once in the month, so it's either this or the July meeting (I know I could just come down by myself, but then I'd have to (heaven forbid) pay the gas for the trip :eek: ) Sounds like the event will be pretty cool though!

    it was actually a planning meeting for the gamestop event at ITT.. which Frankie is heading up for us. Looks like it is coming along great!!! I am so thrilled and can not wait for this event to take place.. I just wish I had the money to make outfits for Kirby, Braiden and myself.. and I don't think I will be able to.. just very frustrating.. no matter.. we will all be there... I will just be stuck wearing the frumpy jedi costume and hopefully Braiden can wear something of Damiens if he is able to... Jake will wear one of his costumes.. obi wan jedi.. or general if luck smiles on us and we get it finished in time... I have nothing for Kirby to wear though...I'm sorry ya'll that my family's costumes are not ready...I would give anything to make it other than so.. but not much currently we can do about it.. finances just are not what they used to be.. and we are suffering.. but we will be there and we will wrangle and support the group and we will ENJOY ourselves immensely with everyone!!

    Yeah, well I just got a job today, and what a coincidence, it is at a custom t-shirt making place! I don't know if I can get us a discount or something, but it would be convenient...

    I know this is probably a silly question [face_laugh] , but I'm asking anyway. Would it be easier for me to just wear my costume up there? I'm guessing there isn't gonna be a place to change there at ITT?

    I'm 99% sure we will have that accomidation set up. It's got several rooms and one will be used to change in. If NOT we've gotten used to changing in a parking lot. ;)
    But it's got many rooms, even bathrooms. We will find a place to change, don't drive in you costume, we will ahve a place to change, no worries.
