SW Celebration VI

  1. #51
    I was prayin for Las Vegas.

    Why does everyone always feel it should be on the East coast or in the Midwest? Because y'all are closer,
    that's why :tongue

    Geezus, Florida again? Whatever. I'd like to waterboard the the idiot who thought the first time, that Florida in August, for the hottest costumes on the planet, was a good idea. But twice in a row? That's just a Capitol offense to me.

    George needs a checkup, from the neckup, allowing people in his employ like that. It's all about the $$$, as is very clear with his "prequel" bs. Florida is hurting for tourist's? Epcot, Disney ? Yah. Poor souls. They had the most money to offer the venue. It's a safe bet that ALL Celebrations will be held there now lol

    They probably already had a deal worked out for the convention to be there again with disney there and the whole new star tours opening theres definitely a conspiracy

    Ugh, Orlando... I wore my TIE last time and thank God the TIE helmet has a large opening! Not even wearing a suit was brutal. Looks like sweat city once again

    Man last year it was soooo hot walking around the building in my Fett...Im pretty sure if your 501st theres a changing room you can get in to tote your stuff around in
    Last time the 501st didn't have a changing room. If you were an official volunteer you could use their changing room.

    not only is it in FL, if this was over a weekend I MIGHT be able to go if I could get a ride and share a room, but it's Tues - Fri, *** is up with that? Now I for SURE can't go because my college will be in full swing. and I have classes Mon - Thur. I'd love to dropkick GL in the face right now.

    @ Fett4Real, take care man, I got back last year and have a few friends who I was with over there again right now. Keep safe. Once you're there let me know your addie and will see about getting you some packages and stuff.
    I think you're looking at 2011 bud

    I feel it should be midwest cause then it's equal travel distance from everywhere. and plus the coasts and south have ALL the big cons, SW weekends, dragon con, nycc, sdcc. I never get to hit anything big cause my fund are tight and I have family and college duties. and just found out that yeah I was thinking 2011, but even with 2012 I STILL won't get to go, cause our family vacation is down there earlier in the year, so I still won't be able to make the trek.

    Aside from the heat I thought Orlando was great. And I was only in the heat for about 5 minutes each way between hotel and con.

    I've booked my hotel rooms and con tickets already. No flights yet... still too early there. Probably deal with that come Januaryish.

    If any of you are coming to Orlando hit me up on hotel rates. I have many friends that work in the industry here so let me know if you are looking for something close to the convention center or disney and your price range per night and I can probably recommend a place. I might even be able to set you up discounts if a bunch of you want to stay at the same place.

    I think there is a hotel that is doing a 65 a night for the convention

    Re: SW Celebration VI

    I missed the last Celebration and I will not miss this one. So happened that we decided to close down our company during that time and life was in total disarray. I would have rather been in Olrlando than boxing up stuff and messing around with storage units and getting chewed out by a sharp as a tack 72 year old former Marine and now former boss after 20 years of servitude. Would do it all over again. Plus weddings that year, I was in three weddings last year, not including the previous 3 since 2006 and the one from two weekends ago. It's surprising how weddings will bankrupt yo' rear when you are a groomsman like all the time! So in 2012 I will be bringing three costumes, my snow clone commander, a new custom clone I named Commander Tyyrel of the I.S.P. and, hopefully, a completed Super Trooper! P90X reboot activate!

    That happens to be on my birthday......maybe the wife will give me a really nice birthday gift.
    The first day of C VI is my b-day. Not sure if I'll be able to go, but it would be a great present!

    Got it... I remember it looked good and that you were talking about the helmet with Art... at least I think it was you. I didn't want to interrupt. I wasn't in my ESB that day because I only wore it the first day of CV.
