    Wizard World Chicago....

    I'm just wondering if anyone from TDH is going, as I ahve a massive group of Predators assembled for it and a group shot of Preds and mandos would be very cool to arrange.

    planning thread:

    Lemme know if you're going and what costume (if any) you'll be wearing so I can say "hi"

    Jodo Kast 3 and I will be getting double rooms again, so we usually get some people there getting ready, till we go over together on Sat morning. Friday is our just looking/shopping day but Sat is when they all troop.

    Wow, this is still a long way off...this event is held in the middle of summer and as I look out my window right now, all I see is snow. Anyway, on top of what Remo said, on Saturday the usual crowd from TDH also includes Fettcicle, Seeker, The Clone Emperor and myself and various supporting staff (lovely wives). The 501st will probably also have a table and I know that Fettswatcop was there last year with them.

    Hey Remo, good to see you'll make it out this year!

    Hopefully I'll have my Boba done by then too. It would be nice to unveil it at home.

    But if not then Spartan or Jango

    Re: Wizard World Chicago....

    I figured that it would be best to make arrangements for WWC now, as I have a habit of doing stuff last-minute.... I'll probably be finishing a piece of my Predator armor on the way in :

    Yup,

    Jodo Kast will be there again this year. And as Remo said, we`ll be there all weekend because we always get rooms. Just remember everyone, WWC is earlier this year...June 26th -29th.


    See you all there!!

    Re: Wizard World Chicago....

    I also posted a thread similar to this over at The League of Heroes and The Brotherhood of the Bat.

    So far it appears that a good amount of costumed participation will take place, which I'm very excited over, as D*Con is out of my range at the moment.

    I look forward to seeing you guys at the con.
    ZK

    p.s., what hotels is everyone staying at? The groupd of predators is staying at the Hyatt.

    Re: Wizard World Chicago....

    Not sure which hotel we'll have. I made reservations at 3 hotels because none are guarenteeing yet connecting rooms(or even nearby rooms). I'm waiting till the last minute to decide where JK3 and I will be for everyone to hang out at. The options are the Hyatt, the Doubletree or the Crowne Plaza where by sheer cowinkydink a seperate convention will be going on at the exact same time. http://www.flashbackweekend.com/index.shtml So for any horror fans you might want to pop over there too.

    Hansoloway-I'm sorry I missed hanging out with you guys last year. We will for sure make up for it this year.

    Re: Wizard World Chicago....

    I remember costuming at Wizard World 2000 with SEEKER in his Sandtrooper before he got into Fett costuming. I think I met a Han Solo costumer that year also by the name of Jodo Kast 3 if I'm not mistaken.

    It's a huge convention. I went every year from 1997-2004, but haven't been there since, because then they switched it to two weekends before Dragon Con. This year, they moved it back again so I'm considering going this year again.

    Oh Mr Fett, please tell me you have some pictures featuring the "varient" version of our beloved Jodo

    And FettSwattCop, will you be coming out just for Sat or the whole weekend? It will be good to see you again as well.

    I was going to post about this also. If you look through the site you can get discounted rates a the Crowne with a promo code. This con is small but usually alot of fun. This is a great place to wear some non Star Wars costumes from fun to gory.

    Re: Wizard World Chicago....

    Fettcicle- Yeah, for whatever reason (I think it had something to do with SDCC, not sure) the dates got moved up from the July/August dates of the past.
    Jk3 and I have a friend there (BigD from the HV&M board) who runs the AV dept at the crowne so he's the guy who has to get everyone set-up and running the drive-in movies at night. He's our hook-up to the "stars". It is a nice con and they do they some nice guests. The Crowne was $109. if they still had any rooms. The Embassy is sold out, the Doubletree is $159 I belive and the Hyatt was about the same. But then they also nail you on parking, which is such a rip-off. You're a guest at their hotels, you shouldn't be charged extra for parking there.

    I may stop in on saturday for trooping, if my pp2 boba is finished by then. I'm goin to comic con by car, so I will be pretty tight on money at that point, so i won't be able to make the whole weekend...but we'll see.

    Re: Wizard World Chicago....

    Random question...... where in the convention will we meet up? THe Predator group has decided for the Hyatt lobby, since that's where most of them are staying.....
    I don't know if I can manage the whole weekend, but I'm definately shooting for Saturday.
