    Dajuan and I thought it would be funny to have the Ewoks strapped in one of the back seats. LOL! :D

    I guess Miss Shoshan is new. I really wish I would of redone Shaak Ti now! Darn it!

    Orli can be seen in Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3 as Jedi Master Shak Ti. Check out the Episode 3 DVD for a cool deleted scene where Shak Ti meets her fate at the hands of General Grievous!

    Oh, Do we have any Andromeda fans other than me? I want to go see him!

    Susan and I are almost ready for D-Con. We are putting the finishing touches on our Jedi and she is about done with her mando as well. We have been wanting to do something else to show how much we were addicted to Star Wars so we decided to get inked!!!!!

    Here is Susan's. It is the Palpatine family crest mixed with the Mandalorian Mythosaur skull and "Strength" written in Aurek-Besh.

    Here is mine. It is the Mandalorian Mythosaur skull and "Death Before Dishonor" in Mando'a.

    Hey, anyone who is coming over tomorrow for costuming and you think you will be here for a while, bring somethhing that goes with grilled burgers/chicken for dinner. We need buns and cheese for sure, and probably some sides and drinks or if you want a different meat bring that. This way we don't have the big scramble for cash for dinner. Sound good?

    Thanks Dajuan for having the huge costuming fest at your house. LOL!

    Just an FYI for all of us staying at the Hyatt. The sales tax on the rooms in 15% per night, per room.

    Holy fracking crap! Well the ballpark figure I gave you guys yesterday is waaaaay wrong then.

    New ballpark figure each is $172.50. If anywants an individual break down let me know. I can easily figure it. I just don't really want to post individual amounts on here.

    EDIT: Bad news John, Warwick Davis has canceled!

    Nine days? NINE DAYS?!!? Ok, this is me hyperventilating...

    But at least I got TODAY the last part of one of my costumes that I ordered in MAY. So my stress is a *little* less than it was this time yesterday. Mind you, I said "a little"...

    NINE DAYS!?!?!

    Vest is more or less done. I just now need to hook up the belt thingies to chap thingies and tweak all the little things. Then on to ruffles. Ugh!

    I just found out I get to work on Sunday, oh fun! I'll have to leave at 4 so at least it'll give us time to work in the morning, and I'm off all day Friday so we can get stuff done then as well. Vipers are done but for the vests but those could use some paint, glue, and ideas for rivits. So pretty much I have the Ewoks left.

    Woo hoo! I can help with rivet ideas, paint and Ewoks. LOL! Yay! I had to make a fake cuff on the chap thingies they were too short with the different boots I got. I need ideas on belt placement, but that will take no time. So I need to age the vinyl, and make some tools thingies, cut ruffles and then cheer Christina on and assist her when we do the petticoat. Oh, and make horns which will happen tonight. See we can do this!!!! LOL! =D=

    Maybe not. I just tried on my can can, and the bodice doesn't fit. And right now, I have no motivation to redo it...

    Ok, Dajuan the Battlestar arm-glowey-things are done. And I remind you of my legal waver...


    I am in no way a professional electrician, therefore the "arm-glowey-things" are fairly fragile, and should they start feeling hot, I recommend you unplug them immediately.

    Score :) If it goes batty I can always take the battery out or put it in my pocket, thanks :)

    Christina if you need help with the bodice I might be able to tweek it for you.
