    OK, I was going to be uber stubborn and turn my costume into a Barris Offee costume but then I got a cup of Shut The Heck Up from myself and realized that the most important thing is to be there to help and to enjoy everything.

    Plus, as a spotter:


    [li]I won't have armor cutting into my privates[/li]
    [li]I'll be wearing comfy, loose fitting clothes, not a lycra body stocking[/li]
    [li]I'll be in nice, cozy sneakers[/li]
    [li]I won't suffocate with a helmet on[/li]

    [face_dancing] [face_devil] :p

    you make being a spotter sound so romantic and fantastic, but personally I'd like to be head to toe in plastic, fiberglass and looking through a viser anyday.

    just wear your costumes
    who honestly cares
    and if the kids dont know what you are
    all the more reason
    that would look awesome to the kids
    they will want to take a picture with you then (and will anyways if they get an idea of who you are)
    "what is that?"
    "i dont know lil billy... wanna take a picture with him/her?"
    "yeah yeah yeah"
    strike a pose and spot in your costume and call it a nice star wars filled day

    I did look at monk's cloth today also but right now I don't have 5.97 a yard to shell out to make my Jawa.

    Moving costs. [face_frustrated]

    Well I hope you all have a good time.... Just remember I'm there in spirit.....Even though I can't go[face_frustrated] :( :_|
    If I could be there, you know I would be.....I just wanted to say enjoy yourselves, and try to pick up as many pointers as you can.....I'd give anything to experience wearing armor....for those of you that get to wear the stuff they have as extra:D....Have fun and remember it's for a good cause whether you're in costume or not.

    hey.. frankie.. your darth nihilus might be just perfect.. just depends.. in any case keep in mind folks.. we are going to do this for fun and enjoyment.. not to make a statement about costumes. It should be great fun and pretty informative as well.

    I am waiting for clothes to dry to pack in my bag.. kind of nervous and excited at the same time. Hope ya'll don't mind making a quick pit stop at a wal mart.. that is cheapest for film.. and I have to grab some. Is anyone taking their digital camera's so that we have pics of our own as well.. probably late in the game to be asking this.. but then I am assuming that Damien and Hope and Dustin are all doing this anyway.

    I am looking forward to some chinese food.

    This, my friends was a great trip. Sure we got our butts kicked, but it was worth it. Kinda like an evening with a high ranking dominatrix....anyway, it was a huge success and we met alot of great people. So now what do we do now? We get armor. =P~

    Thanks for all who joined in and thanks for all those that were there in spirit. I think we made a pretty good impression with our friends in the DSG..and what wonderfull people they are.

    Well hello everyone, After talking to Cat... I heard that you all had a blast and that you would do it again in a heartbeat....just wish I could've been there.....I would have loved to wear some armor:D
    I'm glad you all had fun...as for me, I finally had my first good night in almost 2 weeks... and made over $100[face_dancing]
    I should be able to take some vacation time in March for the MS walk....Lord knows I need one....I can't wait to be in costume again... I know, I know, more action for the camera:D Well that's it for now

    Well, was it worth it? Yes.

    I am just waking up from about 15 hours of sleep (interupted several times). I slept through my fiance calling me, I set the alarm and almost made my child go to school and then was told she didn't have school today :oops:, got up, went to the recliner and fell back asleep.

    It was a great but exhausting time. [face_dancing]

    I'll drive, if we could split the cost on fuel..Cat is gonna call up there and see if we have a floor to sleep on, but if not, we can always rent a motel/hotel room.
