    None of me neither, I guess the hooded face didn't help my photogenic look

    I have a pic of you on my cell phone!! I love it.. it shows two glowing eyes and a hooded figure standing in the shadows.. kind of just like when they go to capture R2 in ANH.

    Dustin's right, we need to start think about this more, it will be here before we know it and we want it to be better than last year, maybe our next meeting we'll start fleshing stuff out for it.

    Uhh... ...did I just volunteer for something?

    Seriously, we can come up with some ideas at the next meeting. Keep "nagging" me so I don't forget.

    Here are some of the ideas suggested so far:

    star field backdrop: a backlit black fabric (maybe frank can shoot some holes in it with his Airsoft stuff!)

    a cut-away of the carbonite chamber floor (red rope light illuminating a half-circle of wood cut inthe same pattern as the ESB floor with the Han in Carbonite inthe middle)

    A spaceship mock-up (but it would have to be very small with the room we have)

    Vaders meditation chamber (problem is everyone wants a pic with vader so this will get in the way)

    Death Star wall with flat screen TV only showing communications with officers (like the death of admiral Ozzell! or battles)

    The Emporers throne room since we'll have a red gaurd, a seated emporer standee)

    More minor stuff:
    Ill have the two Wal-Mart standees modified with our names and logos by then (you know the one Damian wore)
    [image=http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a322/TucsonFanForce/Christmas%202005/bobble.jpg]

    and our official vinyl banner

    we could also use a better stereo, or two one for each end, one with sounds and the other with music?

    very good ideas...you should sketch them out on paper so we can get the full jist of what ou mean..and disguss them at the meeting! They seem totally do able...

    maybe in front of the star wall with the backlit sheet or cardboard, we could frame out a grey painted cardboard profile of the view from the window of the Death Star and have VADER stand in front of that...?

    Maybe we can have nightwalker lend us a blue and a red saber so the kids can "fight" with Vader? Just a thought.

    It's Wet Blanket Wookiee Time! Here's my free advice...and remember what you paid for this advice...
    I know it is still six months away, but a lot of what we do depends on who is going to be there. We will need commitments now. If we go with Frankie's idea, we can have Dustin and Damien's spots. Chewie can stand with the Carb Han and howl a lot. What about Frankie, Chris, Antone, Jake, Cat, Kate, and anybody else I might be forgetting. A lot of questions, but hey, we do have six months, as long as we don't wait six months to get the answers.
    Whatever we do put together, it has to be easy to assemble and easy to take down, since we will have to do this every night. Keep that in mind.

    I plan on being Bly, maybe for the whole time...but then again...Nihilus for the final night would be really cool..and skeerie! :eek: I am easy..I'll do just what I did last time...find a place to stand and greet..then move around to another place. I think Jango/Chris could do the same...but maybe stay around his son..Boba/cut out. Antone, Jake, Cat, Kate are going to be Jedi or Dark Jedi right? Well, the clothes are so comfy that they could kinda wrangle while in thier robes...while passing out candy/cards/and fliers. Maybe we can get some of our loved ones to help out also...my sister would do it in a heartbeat...and maybe lil Chris could be the Jawa, or something...we have plenty of time, but if we get stuff done early(as you all have said) then its less rushing for later..and we can give it all a well polished sheen in the end. Its gonna be great! =D=

    "Little Chris" will be too big for the jawa in 6 months, he's a growing boy. He's as tall as me now I bet. I don't know if anyone else can fit into it, JediObiCat maybe?

    If I remember it was warm but not hot. So in Lew on another plan I think I'll be the Guard or if I get it together the Scout.
    Then again, that Jawa was fun at times. [face_pumpkin] Hehehe. ]-}

    Ahh we can always rely on the wook as our voice of reason! I really like the Death Star profile window, but I tink the Emporers seat would be redundant and take up space especially since his standee is sitting (sitee?)

    Peronally I hope JediObiCat, General Jake, the Kid, and Shaak"I died like a sucka"Ti=Cat all get to do some days since their lightsabers look awesome at night (as long as they're not drooped) [face_devil]

    I am going to make acourtesy call to Vivian the Zoo director reminding her we are interested and confirming we can add tot he displays (like she said we could last year).

    I am planning on beign Vader all three nights as of now, so my Tie will be avaialble for anyone. Damian is definetly going to ned a wrangler in his red gaurd costume. I think he night even see less than most of us in it, and we gotta make sure the little guy doesnt suffocate!

    I don't know what the dates are yet for the zoo event.. but I am assuming the weekend just before Halloween as Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year. I am thinking most likely I WILL be in town for friday and satuday of the weekend of the event... but I won't be here most likely that sunday or monday.. the 29th-30th.. I will be in Arkansas. This is assuming the zoo does it like last year.. not holding the event on Halloween since it is a school night anyway.

    I think we need at least 1 standard TK or sand trooper, maybe we can ?borrow? one?

    All Joking aside, Jack is right (we?ve all learned this from past experience). I push this because it's not something I want anyone else to learn the "hard way".
    Drink LOTTS of water. You might not even know it but it gets hot and you loose a lot of body liquid. Drink till you think you are going to burst, and hold it in. It might sound silly but it?s your health and you can?t be too careful, even at night. Standing around in costume not doing much is enough; it just sneaks up on you. Either dehydration or heat stroke is very easy to get here, and you won?t even know it till it?s too late.

    Little guy?
