    Well, I gotta fly out at 6:45pm so I plan on being at the exhibit probably bout when it opens and maybe doing lunch with folks around 1 or 2pm. And if anyone wants to wear a costume, that is cool- I guess so long as the exhibit allows it. I'll be in a TDH shirt and ummm, I'm a brunette now too

    Have fun!! Wish I could make it out there again for this. Costumes were fine with FIDM. I think only weapons were frowned upon - that and pointing too closely at the exhibits!

    When it comes to lunch - check out The Pantry (within walking distance even in costume) - But be warned each meal is enough to feed the entire Dune Sea Garrison! Okay... I'm exagerrating, but not by much!

    Just a heads up, fan day probably won't be the 20th, but they keep changing the day so I honestly can't give an exact date, but it looks like early december. That works for you guys, however, since the exhibit is pretty uncrowded on non-fan days, so you'll have time to eyeball the costumes without a crowd. And of course it'll be easier to find each other, heh.

    FYI -Our local FanForce is coordinating some events with FIDM for the next fan day. And we were told by our FIDM liason that it was Dec. 4 and that they are planning some big events. Don't know what exactly, but it's supposed to be unlike any other regular day. Supposed to be a great day for costumes though!

    Re: Possible TDH gathering at Dressing the Galaxy

    Well, just bought tickets for 11am- that is the time for the first group. There are only about 65 tickets for that time slot so I would recommend buying tickets in advance rather than trying to get them at the door if y'all are wanting to meet up in there. Tickets were $5 each http://starwars.fidm.edu/index.shtm
    Does anyone know if there is anywhere to eat inside the exhibit? Otherwise, if you leave, then you would have to buy a ticket to get back inside and well, we plan to probably stay the whole day.

    There's a small cafe outside, but I don't know if it would even be open. It wasn't the few times I went. They probably wouldn't let you eat inside the exhibit anyway as it's a small place with limited room, so there isn't anywhere to sit down and chat.

    They do have a small cafe with pre-made stuff but the hours are rather irregular. However, since the cafe is "outside" the exhibit, you have to leave the exhibit in any case. To go back in, you need another ticket! So... just plan on buying two tickets!

    There are a number of other restaurants in the area - the staff at FIDM was very helpful in recommending some. We went to the Pantry which was about 2 blocks away, reasonably priced and each meal is enough for 2! There were a couple others in the area as well.

    And FYI - there is also parking in the garage under the FIDM museum. It's not listed on their website, but it's there!

    Have fun!

    Would it be okay for me to come if I haven't completed my Fett costume yet?

    I don't think everyone is dressing up. Fan day I believe is on the 4th at FIDM. That is usually a day where a bunch of fans show up dressed up in proper SW attire. I have an obi-wan costume, but don't think I am going to wear it...hell I am trying to see if I still make this lil' gathering.


    Anyone ever eaten at Laweys? MMMMm mmm mmm
    I've been to the pantry and yes it is a landmark, but in my opinion if you get anything other than breakfast I feel they just served it out of a can. (i.e. the corn)

    I can稚 believe I知 going to miss this!

    I just found out yesterday I have conflicting dates with Gencon and an industry guest panel I知 doing Saturday and Sunday.

    I知 still planning on going on Fan day for reshoots and meetups but it still isn稚 consolation for not being able to attend TDH gathering. I知 saddened and disappointed I値l be missing out.

    Regardless I hope each and everyone of ya have a great time next Sunday!

    I'll definitly try to make it, I need more information on where and how much.

    I'm going to the Tutankhamen exibit at the LA County Museum this monday so that should be interesting

    Just thought I would see if we might be able to round up a group of us to hang out together on Sunday November 20th at the display and maybe have lunch together as well. A few members are already planning to be there that day so wanted to see if anyone else might be interested.

    For those who will be going, I would suggest to wear a TDH shirt so we know who you are

    Look for all the people that are wearing them and join em. I ordered my Jango TDH shirt a couple of days ago so I hope to get it in time. Or you could always make your own more personalized one.

    Then you have to write "TDH" on your forehead with a permanent marker.

    just went today, great display, just a heads up on security :

    1. cameras NO FLASH allowed *you all knew this*
    2. NO tripods (I tried)
    3. You cannot lean over the glass or an alarm or silent alarm is tripped. I thought the silent alarm thing was bull, but its for real as my poor security person kept on messaging in that everything was alright everytime I tripped it !!
    4. The boba, jango and zam are close to the glass, so you can get real close !

    I'll be there and I will bring along another TDH member: animetronic,
    if he can arrange it in his schedule.

    I will make a TDH badge with my Propsculptor Logo on it so people will know who I am.

    I look forward to meeting everyone!
