Here I am in my hotel in Richardson -- getting ready for Star Wars Fan Days II tomorrow. I am v. excited! After lsitening to a voicemail from Alex, it dawns on me:
The costume contest tomorrow is not until around 5pm, but I plan on getting to the convention before the doors open (since I have some setup to check on at the Hasbro Millennium Falcon display). Should I:
a) Get there early, dress early, troop as the Fett for the entire day and enter the costume contest at 5pm?I'm wondering if I'm asking too much of myself to be in the outfit for 8 hours or so. It's my first convention, but I have done Toy Fairs in costumes for 10 hours at a time. I think the helmet is the big unknown for me.
b) Still get there early, but bring the costume in a trunk, dress in the afternooon, troop a few hours, and enter the contest?
c) Just put the costume on now, sleep in it, eat breakfast in it, drive over to the con and troop in it all day to enter the contest with authentic "been chasing bounties and no time to shower" smell?
Just wondering what people have been able to tolerate in the past. From what I've read here previously, Andy would go for "c", but what about less hardcore BHs?
p.s. ATTN ALL ATTENDEES: STOP BY THE HASBRO DISPLAY AND TAKE THE CELL PHONE SURVEY TO ENTER THE MILLENNIUM FALCON RAFFLE!!
It'll make me look good to the Hasbro Star Wars team if we get a load of people taking it!
