Great pics! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing the pics. Looks like you had a great time, I want to see more.
There will be more! I'll be posting pics as soon as I get home on Monday.
Many thanks to Alex, Eric, Jason, Matt and others who lent a hand! Schwartz and I were definitely drawing our crowds and making the kids happy. And I'm proud to announce that I was able to represent by taking 1st place in the Adult Male category of the costume contest! That speaks volumes about just how much fans and hobbyists like myself are able to accomplish with the help of our peers on this board. Beating Darth Vader (and Chef Vader!) never felt so good.
Pics to come!
It was great seeing y'all yesterday, even if the whole 9am-to-help-set-up thing didn't happen on my end. (Really good absinthe + lack of sleep = no early mornings for me. Oops?)
Congrats on the win, Madmartigan!
Okay, I am completely bummed. I could only make it down for Sunday and I was REALLY depressed that there was NO, I MEAN NO TDH members running around. There was no table, no display, no nothing. I brought my jet pack in and roamed around with it in its case for an hour looking for some brothren and found NOTHING!!! I was so pumped to meet some of you guys there (including folks from OK) but instead got to walk the convention for two hours, get my autographs, buy a fett figure, had my son get his lid signed by all the artists, go to BJ's for an overpriced lunch then drive the lonely 3 hours back to OKC.

If you happened to wander by the Hasbro Millennium Falcon display near registration, you might have seen me on Sunday trying to get people to take a survey on their cell phones to win one. I was wearing a green long sleeve shirt...
Sorry I missed you, bud!!
It was great to meet all you guys, I had a complete blast! Everyone looked amazing at the show. Spideyfett, your daughter was one of the highlights, great job man! I will have some pics posted soon as well.
Members of TDH, you don't know that far I am at this time, and I also eat up I would like to be able to help in everything, but I am in the end of the world, to the SOUTH - ARGENTINEAN and regrettably I won't be able to arrive on time, I wait that in future not very distant I can know them in person to all you and to make my fantasy becomes in fact, a strong hug to all and I hope you enjoy.
Please continue sending pictures - Thanks a lot

Okay, after watching that...Sunday REALLY BLEW CHUNKS!!! There was two costumes there. Darth Maul and a Stormy!!! I really should have been there on Sat!!!
Yeah Baby!What a sour puss, you Okies are a bunch of babies! Your just sore cuz Texas kicked our butts, that's all it is!!!
My first troop and I made the local channel 8...that Rocks.Here's the Dallasmorning News Article/video... I think that's Womo with is R2 and Shwartz in his ROTJ Fett..
Boomer, I'm sorry we missed you. For all the area Fetts, yes that includes the Okies , we need to plan a TDH takeover of All-Con in Dallas in March. That 3 day con will give us more time to get together and play as the list of attending TDHers is already bigger than Fan Days was.
My family and I had a blast. My Fett quality (yes, there's still things to work on ) and getting it done in time only happened through the generosity and talent of Evan4218 and Batninja. Justin helped me, while sick, Friday night put armor together and worked with me until midnight until I went hope and continued to work until 3:15am. Eric assisted me with his elite sewing skills and techniques as well as passing on some experience tips for a Fett newbie. There's many more to thank and I will do that in a showoff thread later after I do some more (perfectionist) work. Also a big thank you to all TDH members present for making Swartzy (Cari) and I feel so welcome and confident in my first Fett troop.
Chris, I didn't realize you were one of the Fett's, dang! I woulda liked to talk to ya! You & Schwartz both looked amazing! Which one of you was the taller one?
I was assisting one of the star wars artists (Paul Allan Ballard) in the exhibit hall and I didn't get to check out the TDH table Saturday. I didn't realize it was only going to be set up Saturday either so I missed out.
It was a great Con though, so many enthusiastic fans and the artists were treated really well.
I did get to meet Spideyfett and Darthmiller Saturday night which was fantastic
looks like a great time. i'm glad to see ashley eckstein and matt wood out there representing the clone wars!
Well, just so you know I was there folks...
