    It's going to be hard to make mind you. I have can't sew at all.

    I might have to hire someone to do it. I can always use it as a halloween outfit aswell.

    Edit: I got 200th post!

    It'd be easier to be Eowyn than Arwen for Halloween, you don't need much more than the dress. To be Arwen you'd need the ears too.

    For Halloween this year I think I am going to be one of Damaskino's familiars from Blade II. So that practically means, I don't have to have a costume :p

    So are you all most excited about just meeting each other rather than any famous people? :p

    Is Ray Park actually gonna be there this year? I remember when I went he was supposed to be there be he cancelled at the last second. I think he was filming X-Men then.

    Do any of you guys know if Ray Park or David Prowse will charge anything for autographs? Just curious.......

    Both charge about 30 for both something to sign and their signature.

    Yet for some reason I paid nothing for David Prowse's autograph. I bought a lifesize cut out of Vader, and got him to sign it. He was impressed.

    Yeah, Park is asking $30 for the standard 8x10 or item, and $35 for a larger print he has at the table.

    I met him yesterday and wow, he's one of the more pleasent, cheerful and gracious celebrities I've met at a con. (so, ok, colour me surprised!) He shook my hand, asked how I was doing, told me he was doing great, signed my pic, shook my hand again. If I had my camera, he would have posed.(note to self - bring camera)

    There you go. Of course, things wear on you during the weekend, so he'll probably be a bit more weary by the end.

    I had an incredible time!

    I spend most of the day with the 501st going about our various duties, but I managed to squeeze in a little shopping, and got to see some of you guys briefly before you left (Mike :()

    I had a ton of fun walking around, posing for photos, hanging in the hotel room, escorting around Mr. Park, and especially opening the masquerade. Those of you who were there (Ken) will agree, we got an incredible reception from the crowned.

    So of course we were all tired, and the dinner was a perfect way to end the day. It was great to finally sit down and chat a bit with everyone. Nice to finally meet Tessa, Anakin_Padme4ever, and anyone else whose name I missed.

    As with every annual event, I can't wait for next year!
