    So who's interested in entering?

    So far
    -me(Padme),
    -Shawn-Chakster (Vader)
    and a bunch of friend we met at AOTC Charity Premiere (an OB1 & ??).

    Ken-BObafett haven't reply back and so is JediClare & JediJean ;)

    And I think I may know 2 of the Judges but I think no amount of Pratas will convince them to make us win with a windfall! :p

    I got 2 of the guys phone number and one of them just had some e-mauling with me.

    They usually hangout at the IRC channel galaxynet/#starwars.

    Ps: The Darth Maul name is Nick and I'll try to contact him tomorrow. ;)

    You are welcome! :) Hope those that we know including us, will get selected. ;)

    Heehee, JediJean, doing Padme White Battle Suit is easy but getting the level of accuracy beyond 80% is difficult. Will try my best to improve my current suit so it'll be 90% accurate to the common fans' eye! ;)

    Ps: I've ordered the Rubies Padme Gun and Holster yesterday and hope it'll arrive by next week as the tip of the gun need some working on again. :( Now where can I get the TPM electronic one cheaply here . . . ?[face_plain]

    Maybe those who are participating can have a little photo session at Taka in front again or all over Ngee Ann City before the event on June 8th.

    Or we can go to Hereen somewhere around 4.30pm and see those JRock tweening which got not only local JRock Wannabee performing but lots of Cosplayers In JRock Related Costumes? :eek:

    No Parade this time cause too little people?

    Err, Lukedecop, e-mail who? ?[face_plain]

    I e-mailed FOX Marketing Rep the contact infos of the Vader and Amidala at Charity Premiere & Zouk and ask her about the Taka Contest (coming or not), and she nearly "jump" at me asking who is the organizer. [face_laugh]

    She "calm down" again when I say Hasbro Singapore and Taka as Hasbro has all the rights to organize any SW related event. She said she was just being caution since many places/company are trying to organized SW related activities but they(FOX) have to reject as got no LFL authorization. ;)

    Lukedecop, e-mail them saying you got a GREAT looking costume. ;)

    So far, me and Shawn are confirmed. Others joining in are BObaFett, and an OB1 from the Charity Premiere. ;)

    Now I must think out WHAT to act out. Something serious and from the movie at first but end with a humor? Something about Padme coming to rescue OB1, only to discover he was enjoying eating Ice-Cream (or Durian) in one of the room with the Genosian's Leader and dancing girls all hugging him? :D

    I'll be coming to give you all my support, even though I will not be taking part in this costume contest. My friend will also be coming down to support you all, and he will be coming all dressed up again... or so he tells me :)

    JediJean, when you come down, why not wear your costume too? :D

    Heard a buncha newbies to SW (originally Anime/Manga Cosplayers) planning to attack the event too. Me very skeptic wherether they had entered the contest too as vacancies very limited and I wish we can get as much people we know into it.

    Not being stereotyping but I think those who had really put their sweat and brain into making their costumes/armor a great success should win. People like BObaFett and Chakster. ;)

    Me, will see how much I can do my presentations and how much better I can redo my belt. Seems I won't be getting Padme's Gun and Holster in time for this event as the US side (according to the costume shop) having trouble getting the authorization to send those stuffs over to Singapore. WHY? WHY?

    I roughly "measured" the stage today and it's about 5-7m in length and 1.5m in available width.

    So any running, jumping etc to be done in the Presentation should be short. Hmm, can I make it?

    Must push for you to get it too! :D The circle will not be completed without an Anakin! (Duh! How many Singapore Fan will actually want to do this costume of yours? It's unique; just like very few will want to do Tatooine Qui-Gon Jinn :D )

    Will try to call up the Rep on Monday, asking about wherther I should wear my costume too for the Rehersal and kapohing about who the other 6 contestants are. :p

    On this issue, I think they should widen the contestants no. for our Category should less than 10 kids entered the other. I'm being very curious too how many of the Kids will actually wear a non-Rubies Costume. ;)
