    I am just putting this idea out into space. Would anyone be interested in having a little work day. Everyone could bring their costumes, whether they are complete or not and we could all get together and work on them, help each other and just hang out in general. I think it would be great if it was at someone's house. I would volunteer ours...but we're kinda out of the way...but if we had to have it here I don't mind. :) So yeah, that's my idea. [face_peace]

    I'd be game, and our house is always available. Just let us know when.

    I love it! About the only thing I can contribute is needle, thread and a lot of enthusiasm. Haven't sewed much more than a button for many many years, but could probably pick it back up without much trouble. Guess I need to figure out what to sew, huh? Anytime after the new year works for me!

    Oh yay! I'm so glad people are willing to participate. After the new year works for me too. =D=

    That does sound pretty cool, maybe that would actually supply me the time and inclination to finish building my lightsaber.... [face_worried]

    I have been wishing for a day like this forever. I need to find the pattern for the New Hope Han Solo shirt, and would love to have a tunic for my Jedi costume. I have some patterns and a brand new sewing machine that has not been used by me. That is so wrong. After the new year would be great. Maybe I can have somthing ready for C4. Yee Ha!

    I love that site. It's saved under my favorites. :D I go to it regularly. They have loads of useful information for both trilogies.

    I'm officially on my way to having my first complete costume!!! I got my tunic, tabards and cloth belt back from my friend. It looks great!!! Now, I need to figure out what cloth I want and make a robe, pants and under tunic/dickie. I think the boots I have look okay, so I'll only need to get a belt. Ouch!! I think those are a little costly!

    Merry Christmas to me!!! I've got my costume going!!! [face_dancing]

    Nice to hear about your costume. Looking forward to seeing it. You sound quite excited! Don't blame you a bit.

    Is there any chance of having a work day before the CHOC party on the 6th? I'm thinkin' it would be extremely scary if I only had the tunic and boots to wear. [face_sick] Not a pretty picture no matter how ya look at it! [face_laugh]

    I'm hoping that I can make the robe and pants pretty much myself (with the help of somebody's sewing machine and a few pointers).

    Do any dates between January 2 & 5 work?

    What say you? (had to add that in as I'm listening to the Pirates soundtrack)

    Jan 2-5 sounds good could use notice asap to make sure I can get day off.

    How about Wednesday, January 3rd?

    JM, it seems like you'd mentioned it being okay to meet at your house. Will that still work or should be plan on meeting elsewhere?

    Anybody else want to chime in here?

    I need pants and my Jedi robe by the 6th. Does the 3rd work for anybody? If not, JM, can I borrow that sewing machine and see what I can do? I haven't sewn in about 25 years. WOW!! If I remember something that happened that long ago really clearly, does that mean I'm old???

    Just pondering...

    No anwers necessary!!

    :D

    Yeah, we could do it Jan. 3rd. I just have an apt. with Ryan from 10-11am so we'll be home after 11:30 am. Kari- you can always borrow the stuff we have for the Jedi outfit for the 6th if that makes it easier than trying to rush. Also, you're welcome to borrow the belt.

    I wasn't sure if that outfit was already spoken for on the 6th. I'd love to have mine finished, but if I don't, I'd sure appreciate the loan!

    The only time I would have available between those dates is the evening of the 5th... :(

    Where do you live, Jedi_Onasi?

    I just bought fabric for the jedi costume I'm going to make. Woot! I also found some better, thinner vinyl material to redo my Pilot Padme vest. You have no idea how hard it's been to find THIN dark green vinyl! And we also bought the plastic base masks for Tusken raiders from the guy over at StudioCreations, and the face pieces from someone over on the 501st boards. Cheating, yes, but much easier. We'll be matchy-matchy sandpeople.
