    I'm going to have to do some research on this Stellar Con. But from what you have said so far sounds pretty cool.

    I'm up for it. Might as well take advantage of what little there is to do in NC. I really want Sean and Felix to do another IQM.

    Nope, but I could. All clothing is reletively simple. I just made a very difficult Legolas costume with no pattern, so I know I could do an Imp officer.

    My hubby and I will be going to StellarCon on Sat.

    we shall see, but unless we have a place to crash, my husband and I will have to make the long trek back to Swansboro before it gets too late, so we may have to bail on dinner. Oh, and another Jawahunter, cinemafreak, our city rep is coming with us.

    Plus there will be many dudes and dudettes from the 501st stormtrooper Carolina Garrison there, in full stormtrooper costumes. You guys are the host site so I heartily recommend your attendance. I can't make it because I'll be out of town on biz that weekend, grr stupid work but feel free to enjoy and have a blast without me.

    Special guests will include Aaron Allston, John Ringo, R.A. Salavatore, Michael Stackpole, and Timothy Zahn. That should start Stardog's excellent fan fic brain to salivating overtime.... ;)

    Stellarcon is alot of fun, I went a few years ago when Timothy Zahn was there. There were a ton of dealers and fun things to do, lots of great costumes as well. I look forward to going this year, would be great to meet alot more of you.

    Do authors charge for their autographs?

    Not usually, but the classy way to treat them, with respect, as one would any other celebrity, would be to purchase one of their books and have them autograph the inside front cover.

    I was just wondering what everyones plans were for Stellarcon. We could all decide on a place and time to meet beforehand and all go together, make it a joint meeting/ event. Its coming up soon, anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Due to my work scedule it will probably be Saturday before I can go.

    Well the con ends at 2:00 on Saturday but, I don't get out of the Flea Market until 4:30 / 5:00. Who could show JKG around for a couple hours until I can meet everyone at Uno's?

    Stellarcon ends at 2pm on Saturday? I have a copy of the schedule and it says 11:30pm for the last scheduled event, hope that is of some help. Let me know what time everyone is meeting at Uno's.

    Look forward to seeing everyone there!
