    yes, in the city, near UR. Actually a few blocks from MCH. I grew up in Rochester, saw original SW at Loews Pittsford Plaza... but it has closed down or else would see ROTS there.

    Hey everyone.

    While I've seen flyers around places like ToysRUs for the Rochester Fan Force, last night at Tinseltown was the first time I saw you guys out and about. I was a little jealous, there's a Jedi Costume folded up in my closet, but going to the show last night, no one else I was going with was dressing up. I lucked out last time by having friends I've grown up with in SW fandom to go with to the movie. It was Anakin, Obi Wan and then me... random female Jedi.

    Anyways. I was jealous. You all looked fantastic. You made the inner uber-Star Wars fan in me want to claw its way back to the surface, run home and grab a lightsaber and join the fun. :D

    Welcome to the boards jedi_mako! Thanks for stopping by! We'll be at Tinseltown again tonight 6pm-10pm, Sat 1pm-10pm and Sun 1pm-6pm so go dust off those Jedi robes and come out and join us! :D

    To be serious though, no costume is required to join The Rebellion, participate in our events or (of course) post on our boards. It just happens that most of us also belong to The Rebel Legion and/or the 501st Legion which are the costuming groups.

    I hope you'll come back and visit us again.

    It does indeed. I have done demos at Tinsletown as well but not for SW usually for things like LOTR and such. I plan to be back out there this weekend to see SW again. :)

    Very cool! I know a couple people in the [link=http://www.thescorre.org/]Barony of Thescorre[/link] through my membership in the [link=http://www.usstranquility.com]USS Tranquility[/link]*shameless plug*. I believe the Barony will also be involved in [link=http://www.astronomicon.info]Astronomicon[/link] (which I am on the Con Com for) *shamless plug #2*. Stop by and say "Hi" if you see us at the table this weekend. I'm hoping to see EIII again on Saturday if I can sneak away from the table for a while.

    Thanks for being so friendly! I actually was there again on Thursday (tagging along with more people who hadn't seen the movie yet) and was wowed again by the costumes. The guy with the Wookie outfit... amazing. :D

    As I'm halfway through graduation weekend at RIT, it's unclear just how much longer I'll be in Rochester (Wherever they'll give me a job.. I'm there.), but until I go or if I end up sticking around, I'd like to keep up on what you guys are doing.

    Maybe the Jedi robes will come out again. :D

    Jedi Maco & scafencer Welcome....

    scafnecer hi My wife & I have been to a few sca events & meetings. We were kind of introduced to it thru Some friends of ours Ed Ciminelli (Lionheart) & Paul Lashbrooks (I don't think he has a scanadian name yet) But we really enjoyed 3 Ravens & IceDragon and are considering PAX.

    We're considering joining, we just have to figure out if you have enough time leftover between the real word, Sci Fi Clubs & the Sca.

    But nevertheless WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!

    jedi_mako - Recently, our meetings have mostly consisted of planning for upcoming events (we've had a ton). We would also bring in favorite parts of our collections for a sort of show and tell. And just general discussions that can take place faster in person than they can on the boards.

    As far as what would be involved in joining? You're already a member of FanForce by posting on the boards here. And, usually as soon as we get to meet a poster in person they're considered part of The Rebellion. We have no membership dues or other restrictions. As our chapter is sort of on the small side at the moment, we haven't had the need to make The Rebellion any more formalized.

    Hi!
    Just happened to stop by, I'm Erica and I live out in Wayne County. About halfway between Rochester and Syracuse. But I went to college at St. John Fisher and usually shop in Rochester, so I thought I'd say hi. I have a few random posts on this board, but that was a few years back.

    I went to CIII, you can see my pics here, under "Emily and Erica's pics".
    [link=http://www.flickr.com/photos/thebothanspy/sets/286860/]CIII pics[/link]

    I'm staff over at [link=http://www.thebothanspy.com]The Bothan Spy[/link], and I moderate a [link=http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/thestarwarsfangroup/]sw yahoo group[/link] as well.

    I had so much fun at c3, I hope to be more active on this board, and actually do some fun SW things!

    Erica

    Erica,
    Welcome to the boards! I had to laugh when I looked through your CIII pics. I was the Biker Scout who "Stole" your droid at the droid hunt. Thanks for stopping in to say hi.
