Alright peeps this is the first wave. Planning needs to begin a.s.a.p. >>>1st ever Masqerade on Saturday Evening.<<< Feb 18th might seem like a long way out...but it just seems that way. It'll sneak up on us trust me. NOW for eveyone who didn't go last year and our newbies this year, WONDER-CON/Unity is where it's at (see below for details) Last year we had a UNITY dinner Friday night with the other fanforces and 501st groups as well as special guests. having been there last year it was the highlight of the weekend (aside from the bar room brawl I had to bail Hawkgirl out of...she's fiesty that one) for me. Then there's the Wonder-con itself is beyond coolness, and this year with Episode 3 just a short time after I'm sure Lucasfilm will make it rock the house. (not to mention a certain fanfilm trailer could make it's debut at the con) The show floor is huge. the guests are huge (in celeb power not literally huge...unless they raise Marlon Brando from the dead). Last year the combined fanforces and 501st were asked to escort Steve Sansweet of Lucasfilm to his speaking engagement at the Con. So who knows what might happen this year. Take a look at pics from last year (cut and paste) http://18.104.22.168/ccg/photogallery/album.asp?cat=2004-04-30%20-%20WonderCon%202004 http://www.elvistrooper.com/WC04/wc04.htm http://www.crowfansonline.com/wc2004.asp#thumbs (just a sample of pics) People in costume everywhere. You wouldn't believe how many people will ask to take a pic with you if your in costume. Lets make the Rogues a Force at wonder-con this time.
