holy **** that's awesome...
Yeah, the booth looks like it is ROCKING!
THAT IS FABULOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AWESOME costumes .... and Turo ... amazing job on the paint and weathering on those pieces !!!!!!!
Looks like all the training for you Spartans paid off - You look great !
Ditto!!!!!!!!!! Way too cool!!!!
Awesome suits, helmets, booth and, um....cod....bikini......Spartan thingies.
Great job, keep the pics coming.
Those are some outstanding 300 suits! The helmets, shields, and spear tips are amazing!!!!
Nice Booth Guys!!!
I have now officially seen too much of certain members of our TDH community.
Have fun guys, like I need to tell ya!
Wow, definantly awesomely manly gear.
I told myself I wouldn't look at D*C photo threads for a few weeks, and I know why! I'm so bummed I couldn't make it this year, not being able to get the time off work, but thats the way it goes sometimes... Looks like everyone's having a blast and I love that we've got a fan table now! Now I hope I can score whatever swag you got there, like those posters and t-shirt and maybe one of those shiny coins
Next year my friends, next year
very awesome wish I could have gone!
I'm up in Chicago, and I have internet access again! That means I can upload my pictures! The con was so much fun ... I'm really glad I got to meet up with some of the folks on here who I haven't seen for a while (some since last Dragon Con) and some folks who I met for the first time.
Like I did after C4, I will pull out a couple of good pictures I got and post them here ... just so y'all don't have to wait while I upload the many photos I have to my Photobucket. I did get quite a bit of pictures! So, here is what I've got:
Here is Travis in his custom Mando, WebChief as Jayne, and me as :
Oldtimer, Predatormv, and Gilmore of OK:
Seeker & GotMaul in their Spartan costumes:
Who is this guy to tell me "no disintegrations?!!!"
I had the opportunity to meet some members of the Mandalorian Mercs. Here is a picture of them just before the parade. Quite an impressive group!
Here is the 501st bounty hunter picture. Only a few short of having all of the hunters there, but I've never seen such a great variety:
Here is the picture the Mandalorian Mercs took for Karen Travis. She will be VERY pleased:
This is a priceless moment for the both of us pictured here. I am , but who is ????
Yep, it's Gilmore of OK trooping in a Fett costume! He asked me Thursday night if he could step into one of my Fett costumes. I initially thought he was messing around, but he was actually serious. (I swear I have such a hard time distinguishing sarcasm from seriousness:o.) When I found out he was serious, I immediately told him he could! It was a priceless moment for him because he hadn't been in Fett armor for about 4 years and NEVER actually trooped in Fett armor. It was priceless for me because #1) father-son Fett trooping is something special to me (there is a long story behind that), and #2) I was able to give the guy a really special moment before he headed off to Iraq. Just writing that almost brings a tear to my eye.
Just a little bit later, evan4218 shows up with something absolutely amazing to see in person. His FPH helmet!:thumbup
Here is the TDH group photo before we all headed off to dinner:
The TDH dinner at Max Lagers (a big thanks to Mirax for putting this together)
Here is evan4218 in his Crimson Guard ... first time I've seen this one!
And here is TK-7602 as and his wife, dancer:
AND one more!!! This was hilarious and very impressive at the same time!:thumbup One of the 501st TIE pilots acting as a drill sargent came on by, and TDH's very own oldtimer was in his Fett costume. This was what happened shortly thereafter:
Anyway, that's all I have for now. I'll start uploading my pictures later today.
Great pictures guys, looks like you're having a blast! Every year I say the same thing..."Maybe next year" and then next year never seems to work out. It's just like being a Cubs fan.
Dang it! Even Eric left me! Oh well, looks like everyone had a blast!
WOW! Awesome pix all the way around. Is anyone on this board making a 300 Persian Immortals suit? I'd love to see a few of them opposite the Spartans.
I had fun meeting you guys and hanging out with ya. The moment I had with Seeker and GotMaul in the elevator was priceless. I knew exactly who they were but they had no idea who I was . I guess I need to post more. Man I look Man-pregnant in that group pic, I need to get on that 300 work out
Excellent pics! Everyone looks so great!
That video was hilarious!
Fantastic pics! DragonCon was a blast as always but manning the TDH table and meeting so many TDH'ers was definitely the highlight for me. I can't wait for next year
Awesome pics guys! My gf Leslie couldn't stop drooling over all the Spartans heh. We didn't really take many pics but here's our galleries.
Sorry for so many pics of Superman, he just kept doing stuff and saying Hey Steve take a picture of me doing this!
Wow I'm tired!
Those are some fantastic pics!!! I have a bunch too. I'll have to upload them tomorrow.
It was a BLAST seeing everyone again! I can't wait till next year.
It was also an absolute honor to participate in the Spartan project. It all really came together.
It was a blast meeting everyone! Jimmy B, your Jango rocks! Dustincropsboy, I hope you had another lucky streak on Sunday without me =D Just remember, it's the custom!
Soon as I can get the Mercs protecting Erik Estrada pic then I'll get it up on here. I don't think I've had my feet bleed since I was in the Navy, but after the amount of walking that was done in the armor...it took it's toll over 4 days.
Thanks for the awesome time guys.
This was my first Dragon*Con - and It was amazing!!! Great meeting some of my fellow TDHer's in person!!!
Some of my photos aren't family friendly - not sure if I am allowed to post them here.
My wife sure loved SEEKER's (Arturo's) Spartan costume though... Oh well, what can ya do? (See for yourself below):
Got to show off my Holiday Special Fett (FINALLY)! That ESB Fett is Shabad's - IMO, his was one of the best looking Fetts there! (No offense to the other Fetts though!)
Can't wait until next year!
I met so many new people from TDH that I'll probably have trouble remembering all your names.
DragonCon was a blast guys, and meeting you guys made it even better.
Here's a couple pics I got:
Me and Arturo:
Me heading back to my room to suit down,man was it hot in there!!
Here's a start...
Some stuff here, too:

That, was one heckuva GRAND Time at DragonCon! It was great to meet many of you and to hang out with you all was even better!
Lookin' good everyone!
I wish I could have been there.
I love this con. There is no other con even close to it and the closest one being Comic Con which is still not that close. Please, anyone who has not tried this one out, please go next year !!
best pic from the con... future tdh members...
I`m just exhausted.
It was a blast seeing everyone again. I wish I could have spent more time at the TDH table, but with our BSG project in full swing at DCon, it was just hard time wise....there`s never enough time!!
I will get my pics uploaded tonight. And any incriminating pics you see of me and Webchief getting into trouble...just ignore.
Move along...move along...nothing to see here..
Ohh, I picked up some Shwag at the Booth, whoever does the design for the site/logos/Business card.. Great Job, I LOVE the Card as well as the Stickers..
If you guys made some PROFESSIONAL grade Vinyl stickers, I'd wear it on my suit..
Maybe the Dented Helmet logo on a Patch?...
Now I know how our beautiful women feel like while at Dragon Con.
I felt like a piece of meat, but I loved it!!!
here's some pics of our spartans costumes
Gotmaul, SWfreak, and myself.
Alex, Mike, Alex's wife, Gotmaul and myself
DANG TURO, you guys look Fantastic!!
Great pictures so far...I hate that I missed D-con again...maybe next year.
Glad I took off work Tuesday. Even though I drove ten hours yesterday and felt fine last night, it all caught up to me today and I crashed.
This was my first time at DragonCon and it was everything I was expecting x 10. The best part for me was meeting so many peers that do things at the same level of craftsmanship as I do, but in different genres of costuming. I was very inspired to work on a wider variety of things that are not just Star Wars. It was also great to just meet so many new people in general who share this hobby and are "good people". I also finally got to meet Seeker and Art, although briefly.
Anyway, I didn't take many pictures. Just some costumes that interested me.
HERE YOU GO!
Those Gears of War costumes look SWEET!
These are all great!!!!
Thank you all for sharing - you are all a great inspiration!!
I could've sworn, you were going to post this pic!
I thought you'd all want to know there's a new ZAM I AM!
Ok, ok, ok, the truth, so we swapped so I could be a cylon...
Here's the link to all our D'con photos
Yep, and someone is missing in that pic.Here is the TDH group photo before we all headed off to dinner:
I finally got my photos online...
most of my costumed time this year was spent in the firefly 'verse...
though boba did make it out for a while...
Must be nice to have Mandalorians for bodyguards =D
Back on topic... I have to say that the reality of convention attendees dressed as Spartan gladiators is much better than the mental image I initially got when I heard about it. That could have been a disaster!
I don't think I'd make a very good spartan. I've been more like the ones on Sunday who had KFC buckets on their heads and pizza box shields =D
Yeah, me either...there's nothing "spartan" about my body...is there such a thing as "Excess-ans"?
Here are some shots of Jamie (clawdite77) winning one for the TDH team during the Star Wars Costume Contest!
Best Bounty Hunter and Best in Show!
some other shots...
jamie's alter ego...

Here's some of our Starship Trooper fun:
haha love it kristin, looks greats.
Bloody Starship Troopers, cool! Hah, you got the leg stump in there too.
Congrats on the win Clawdite77.
I gotta say, we got more use out of that severed leg than I expected, it was great!
Great Pictures !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wish I could afford a Starship Trooper outfit. But, I'm spending all my pennies finishing up boba
Count down to Dragoncon 2008 hehe
Hey, I didn't realize one of the dollar stuffing ladies belonged to the TDH ! I would have only charged .50 cents !
Starship was more fun than I remembered in a long time. Thanks for making me do it Art and K.
Here are some more of our members...one of these is rather snifftastic
I knew it, Eric Estrada is The Sniffer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eric give you a big smack on the lips Mirax? He seemed to enjoy giving one to the Mercs girls LOL.
I'm still working on getting all of my pics up, but I did complete the set of the ones I got before the con started as well as the ones I got from Friday.
Before the con:
I accidentally shot Rex:o
Here is Chris Askins from Garrison Carida as an awesome Captain Barbossa:
Mr. & Mrs. Fett:
And this was one bounty I should NOT have made a deal on!!!
Greeeaaaat Starship Trooper pics!! That's what inspired me to join the Mobile Infantry!
Looking forward to joining you next time!
Ack! A Endor Commando caught in between Fett and a Republic Commando!! What's a fella to do?? Zzzap! Ah! Catch a blast from Fett!!
Absolutely ace photos!
What costuming is all about. Loving the spartans and the Gears of War guy.
Just read this back, I have got a girlfriend ok. LOL
Looks like you all had a great time so well done!
Finally got mine uploaded:
Woah, you guys had a blast.
Now, let me get this straight, Erik Estrada is The Sniffer? I'm amazed that someone like him would come to our little corner of cyberspace... but then again, I had one forum thinking I was Chuck Norris for about a month
It's amazing how many free things you get when people think you have a third fist instead of a chin
That picture isn't freaky enough!
Well looks like I will nott be getting any sleep tonight. Thanks guys.
Here are some of the pics I took.
First off are the pics I got of the SST group out side the Marriott. Seeing them made me want to get a SST uniform for next year. Mirax looked extra awesome with her new wounds! LOL
Next are some pics of the booth that I took. It was very well set up. Though we were confused with the 501st booth a few times. It had lots of cool TDH buys and the new Tshirt is my favorite so far! GREAT WORK BLASTECH AND TK409!!!
Here are some pics from the dinner. It was really well organized, as we had a space on the top floor to our selves. I was lucky enough to get to spend a bit of time chatting with Thomas, Dallas and Art and Kristen as well as the infamous Gillmore!!! It was really allot of fun. If you missed it you missed a good time!
More pics to come.
I just want to say that it was great meeting so many folks this year. Bob and Bill, wish I had had a chance to talk with you guys more, you both seem like great guys. Bob, your a riot! Even on the other side of the bar you make me laugh.
And the Chicago crew! You rocked Dcon with your Spartan costumes. Way to go!
It was a real pleasure to meet those of you I'd never met before, and great to see old friends again..
Seeker.. you and your fellow Spartans... just ****. Never has being in shape looked more appealing.
To whoever it was I gave my email addy to Sunday night for 300 info:
PLEASE send it on. Sitting on my butt feels.. uhh... like sitting on my butt.
Pics will be forthcoming.
Ya'll be good.
My pics are here.
Me and Erik
View from the table:
Some I found online of my wife and of me that I liked:
And here are the rest of my pictures which I finally got to upload:
I found this picture in TK-7602's pictures. Brian, I hope you don't mind me using this picture from your gallery.:o But this is BY FAR the best picture I have EVER seen of my costume:
OH MY, I am crying from pure laughter and total sorrow for not being there this year!!!! These pics rock !! The Spartans looked insane! The Zam's looked killer! The SST'er's looked legit, somebody needs to build a "bug" costume for next year! Jon, doe's Rose know that you borrowed her Sith cheerleader get up?!?j/k LOL!!
TXFett, group counseling starts tomorrow I will see you there I am bringing the dounts someone needs to bring teh coffee

buahahahaaa - nice!
and that Gears costume is amazing!
... suddenly getting an idea...
It will be a while before I can share my own Dragon*Con 2007 pictures, but I did find a couple from others that encompass much of my Dragon*Con experience;
Picture from Mealanie. Out of respect for family values, I won't caption this one.
This is my Demon friend, dressed as Darth Traya. (Photo by Dionne.)
It was a wonderful reunion. Aside from a little medical issue I had that kept me out of the parade, the convention was beautiful. TDH was trully the slickest operation on the floor. I am proud of the this forum, and very happy to be able to contribute to the whole.

Ok, now I really want a Gears of War costume. That's just awesome. Anyone know where he got that?
argh now I'm supposed to exercise and get muscles because my gf wants a spartan of her very own..(though maybe I just need an airbrush)
Yeah nightmare armor... Your looking at $2,000-$5,000 a suit though.
Great pictures! Depresses me further...
Repost from the zam forum just in case you didn't see:
I had an absolute BLAST at D*Con. Art... payback's a ......
Hanging with everyone WAS my D*Con. I didn't go to a single panel (the one I tried to go to was cancelled) and all I did was hang out with everyone, laugh, drink and have one of the best times of my life.... seriously. I've never met a better bunch of people then here on TDH. True friends.
I miss everyone badly and I'm going through post con wildrawls. I don't want to be at work and I think I need a beer already. Ugh... real life is so dull.
See you next year for sure!
Here's my pics:
Boba getting a bounty of a different kind
MaulMaus and FANGS manning the booth
My gear on the table... never looked better!
Andy in his gear
Me in one of my Jayne get ups

Dallas, Art, me and Kristen
Alrighty! webchief ~ you got a pick with you and kimmy yay!
Me with Jose and ?, is there such thing as an embarrased cylon? The funniest thing Jose said, "your hubby is gonna kick my ...." (And we made hubby take the pic...)
I like this one much better: Gotmaul/Jose, me and DGasser/Dana
