    How about GI Joe and Cobra.

    That would really be cool, especially with the new GI Joe movie coming out next year. There are so many costumes and characters that it would be really easy.

    ooh i just had another idea...mind you it would be limited. Voltron cats and have the cat become Voltron...that would be hard to do, but man if it could be figured out!

    I wouldn't mind doing GI Joe and Cobra, but I still think something with humor and mass appeal stands a better chance of winning.

    I think GI Joe would have huge mass appeal, what better timing would that be, I mean the GI Joe movie is coming out next year. It was huge in the 80's and everyone know who GI Joe is.

    "Dark Crystal," with "The Power of the Dark Crystal" being in production would make it timely for Starfest. It also has the most potential for a large showing...

    Dark Crystal would be fun, I always wanted to make a mystic when I was a kid. Be a lot of prosthetic work though.

    G.I. Joe could be interesting, particularly if we stay away from the characters that wear just basic BDU's.

    I know we talked Farscape a few years ago, and I've got most of the stuff to do Chriton. It would be one that has enough different characters that people could choose based on the amount of effort they want to put in.

    I've had the idea bumping around in my head to do Girl Genius, but it might be a bit obscure for some folks. Although, given the way the comic is written it could give some great opportunities for comedic overacting.

    Dark Crystal would be interesting, but I have never seen it, so I have no idea what the characters are.

    I don't know why the pictures are not working for the GI Joes....

    Oh well

    Remind me to get you a copy of Dark Crystal, BFett... Classic Henson at its best, man. :D

    We could do a whole bunch of Nintendo Characters. There sure are enough of them out there. Or like classic Arcade characters, Pac Man, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong....

    Just to name a few.

    GI Joe would be iffy. There are only 3 girls & the RMFF is over 1/2 girls, so how many girls want to be a ninja or a costume that covers your face?

    I (edit)DON'T call Scarlet :p hehehehehe

    Wow, where did that come from, that is costume I liked the least - maybe that was it.

    I like some of these ideas. Favs are Willow, Farscape, Hellraiser, Dune and GIJoe...Futurama would be fun, but a lot of work and prosthetics...unless we did it as a cardboard spoof. I do agree that to do something big we need to start R & D asap.

    We could go down the fighting genre video game path.

    There is Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.

    Ew, I want Baroness - I'm blaming the Vicodin for my last post :D

    Or a generic ninja - I'm not too picky

    LOL, I have the sailor uniform --all I'd need is a parrot and a flintlock gun. :D I could be Shipwreck. :)

    OW - I thought you'd be better as Chuckles ;)

    SC would be a great Baroness

    T would be good as Jinx (though we'd have to hide her hair :eek: )

    JGoC could have a ball with Zaranna and her pink hair
