Discussion in 'FanForce Conventions' started by JEDI-KNIGHT-JAY, May 22, 2009.
Anyone making this mini celebration in Texas in Oct? Looks kind of cool.
Austin Fan Force will have an event presence once more, I'll have more details on that in the coming weeks. Last year we raffled off a fully signed Fan Days II poster for the Red Cross and held a trivia challenge with some nifty prizes.
this will be my first. im really looking forward to it.
It's in Dallas, right? How much does it cost to get in? I might go, if only to prepare for (possibly) going to CV.
Grimby the Hutt and I plan to roadtrip to this con from Denver.
Be sure to stop by the MidSouth table and say hi!
This will be our first Fandays and we are looking forward to it! I will be flying in from Jacksonville, FL. We are very busy now with the new release of the Makazie One fanfilm. If you have not seen it yet you can check it out here....enjoy.
Producer - Makazie One
We are happy to announce that "Makazie One" will be shown at Fandays III in Plano, TX. Please see the following link -
A few questions:
I'm split over whether or not I want to go to this. I've never been to a Star Wars Convention, and this one is close to my location (within 100 miles), so it makes for a good oppertunity. But the impression I get from what I've been hearing is that this convention is mainly intended for huge Star Wars fans. Like those into all the EU stuff, what's official canon and what's not, etc. So I'd like to know if those of us like me, who are just moderate Star Wars fans (who don't read the novels or comics), would enjoy this kind of thing, or if we'd feel out of place. The stuff in the Saturday schedule in the Main Auditorium all sounds interesting, but I want to have some idea if I'd be plain bored the rest of the time.
One of my main reasons for considering going is because I'd also really like to know whether or not I want to go to CV next year. And to be honest, my biggest motivation for going to that would be for the TFNer meetups people post about that look and sound so awesome. So a nearly hundred mile trip to a mini-Celebration might give me an idea as to whether the other stuff at CV (besides just JCers) would interest me enough to make a thousand mile trip and spend several hundred dollars. It'd probably also help me be more prepared for the bigger celebration.
Also, I'm betting the answer to this one is no, but I just want to make sure. Does almost everyone wear a costume? Is it like, odd not to?
I think this con will be great for the casual to the hard core fans. Looking at the programming, I'm sure you can find something that will interest you about the movies, fandom, or anything that catches your fancy and that you want to learn more about. There will be many casual fans there just taking in the con.
I'm not planning to wear a costume and I think at least 70% won't either. There will be costumers there and those who enjoy costuming, but it won't be odd at all to not be in costume as the majority will probably be in SW or other geek/sci-fi related shirts and (they better wear) jeans.
Well I'm going to bed now so I can get up early enough to make the hour and a half drive before 9:00. I don't have any Star Wars shirts either, but I made a makeshift one myself. So I'll be wearing that.
Hope to see you all (or some of you) there!
I just wanted to say how awesome Fan Days 3 was! It was a terrific weekend filled with lots of awesome people and cool stuff to do! Aside from the fact that it was hard to tell where to register or what each line was for, it was a great day! I was glad that it was easy to meet and talk to any of the guests, and it was fun making a lot of 10-minute friends in line!
Many thanks to the organizers who must have put it a lot of time and effort to make this event happen! I definitely can't wait until Fan Days 4! Thank you so much!
I was carrying around a video camera for most of the time and quite a few asked me if I was going to put it online. It's got Ray Park and the Clone Wars voice actors in there too, along with costumes and the crowd. I promised I'd put the link up here when it was ready, so here it is for anyone that wanted to see it:

Wait a sec, you drove from Houston to the northern Dallas area in just 2 hours? I think you meant 2 hundred miles (even though it's farther than that). I live south-west of Fort Worth and it took me almost 2 hours to get there.
