    Ok...using our Upcoming Threads as a roadmap...

    I notice that the Rebellion is kind of on a small two week break after G&W.
    We have the Serenity Premiere true but that weekend and the weekend after are pretty much up in the air.

    Would anyone like to possibly have a get together on one of those days for another workshop?
    I know that we've been doing small group work..or maybe I'm just really out of the loop but it might not be a bad idea just to have a small get together while the weather is somewhat decent.

    Just a thought.
    Feels so good to have an almost clear head <sigh> :)

    The 1st is pretty open (I just have an Astronomicon mtg from 4pm-6pm), but on the 2nd is the USS Tranquility's annual apple picking field trip and Hilton Apple Fest which will probably take up the whole morning and afternoon.

    On the plus side - I know how to use my sewing machine a little better now. :)

    Tom & I have some free time during the second weekend in October, especially that Sunday, October 9th. before bowling. Sorry, we have Barktoberfest in the morning and a party starting at 4 p.m. til whenever.

    I will also be taking some time off around Halloween (October 28th. - November 1st.) to finish up anything we need for Halloween, the DVD release, and the Auburn event. We could always have mini-costuming parties that weekend too.

    I wouldn't mind a armor making party, I kinda have an Idea now for what I want to do. I don't really have the build for a stormtrooper, but the armor bits for arms / legs would be decent for my "Bounty Hunter" costume. Since there really is no set exact design for that type of character, I figure I could have a bit of fun with putting something together and hang out at jabbas place ;)

    Using ST Armor for part of a Bounty hunter costume is a great idea. I once designed and wrote about a femal Fan Fiction, Mercenary type charrector that wore the top armor painted Blue.

    I'm not sure that SCAFencer wants to use Stormtrooper armor for his Bounty Hunter. I think it's more so that he doesn't realize that (at the moment) we're only set up for Stormtrooper armor and can't make anything else yet. However, I could be wrong... ;)

    lol with the amount of dead troopers that the empire seems to leave where ever they go, it would stand to reason that some hunter would get the idea of "Hey.. why not, they won't need it anymore..." of course the large blaster holes would need to be repaired ;)

    Btw I did pick up some patterns for SW stuff this weekend at Joannes.... had to fight off alot of nasty parents that were looking for thier kids halloween costumes.

    Some hunters might figure on that....

    The smart ones realize "This armor didn't do them much good. I better get a REAL set of armor" :)

    I still prefer the fact that we look good in Shiny White... its scary, right?

    My work schedual (due to some recent firings and some people quitting) is at 6 Days a week, and much like a full time job, which, when piled on top of full-time school, makes my time very limited. If we all get a date on a next-prop party, I'll try my best to work it into my schedual ^^

    Just curious if anyone knows a good source for the resin kits. Classic Leia needs a gun. ]-} I may use one of my opened "Star Trek?" Tracer guns for Mara once I make a holster for it, but they are a bit small for her. (I bought them as "Star Trek" at RATS years like 15 years ago, but they don't say Star Trek and they look like Western guns, but they look identical to one MOC ST tracer gun and disks I found years later cheaper.) Many years ago, I bought 3 ST:TNG resin kits at Astronomicon's dealers' room and they were very easy to assemble, to paint and to alter to make them more screen accurate and easier to use as props especially the medical tricorder. Recently, I saw an ANH Leia gun resin kit on ebay for $40 with shipping, but didn't know what they really were going for these days. Since there are no bids on it, I figured I might find it cheaper locally or online. I was actually looking for blasters for Mara at the time. Any ideas, suggestions or sources? :confused:

    Akya-

    Any chance they're hiring? I'm in desperate need of work, and I do have a pretty good grasp of video gaming... and the callouses to go with that grasp!

    I know that T & DarSolo are unavailable, but we can host on Oct 1st for those that are available. That's our only free weekend day between now and when we need armor. Today (27th) we're working on armor too, but I'm not sure that many other people are free - if you are though - you're welcome to join us.

    I may want shoulder armor for a Royal Guard in the future as well. Not sure if I want to go all armor like some of the Royal Guards did on the 501st. website though. I guess when I'd be ready to make that decision, you'll be in full production on some revised armor anyways. Oh, I noticed on some chipped helmets on ebay - they are white under the red paint, so we don't have to worry about red plastic anyways - just the right shade of red paint that will adhere to plastic.

    I think maybe 1pm for a start time. Since we'll be out somewhat late for the Serenity premiere the night before.

    I'm undecided on whether or not I'll be able to attend. Basically, the weather will be the deciding factor, as we have an outdoor event thing with friends out-of-town. Yet there's sooooo much I'd like to do before Halloween, in regards to puting some polish on the 'ol Ani outfit. Just superficial, quick little things. I guess I could try it myself in my free time, but I kinda lack an integral part of the equation; a sewing machine! Ah well. Maybe we'll see y'all on Saturday, maybe not. Either way, I am planning on coming over sometime soon to help out KS with armor molds...

    Sorry guys.
    I'm out for 10/1
    Too many things on my plate right now.
    I thought I had gotten rid of a lot of it but I guess I didnt.
    I'm sorry KS.

    So I guess here's what it's looking like:

    Attending:
    KnightShade
    Doc_Bev

    Interested:
    SCAFencer
    Nevets
    Ayka
    Akayeon

    Undecided or Not Attending:
    T_StarFlyer
    DarSolo
    RSWingnut
    MadKidJedi
    Wookie_Cookie
    Modernism
    TX4277

    Since KS and I have plenty to work on between now and Oct 22nd, we'll be doing prop/costume stuff whether folks come or not, but if no one else is free maybe we should just cancel the party aspect of it. People are welcome to come over to help KS with his project, but I'll probably be hogging the sewing room (& only sewing machine) trying to get my RFT finished and Padme gown started.

    So if anyone is still interested in coming over - post what times you think you'd be here so we know how to plan our day.

    Oh, and, Nevets I have no idea of what kind of tools might be needed for what KS is working on.
