    Aug 25, 2005, 12:23 PM - Star Wars Costume Exhibit: Zam??? #1

    This looks really interesting:

    FIDM Museum Exhibit: Dressing A Galaxy

    If you look through the slideshow, you'll see Zam in there - I'm hoping that they'll have her costume there at the exhibit. (I think it would be worth the trip even if Zam isn't in it!). Sounds kinda like an expanded version of the Lucasfilm Archives that were at both C2 and C3!

    Looks awesome. But depressing to me cause I'll never be able to see it. At least as long as it is in California.

    Wow! I am really flattered! You guys are really sumthin. DCB and Moncal ~ you guys going? I hope that if it does happen, we could all go there at the same time. LOL then we could finally have most our questions answered. Flap or no flap on the lip of the shins, how long the skirt actually is, was the skirt dunkeddyed or air sprayed, how the gauntlets were actually hooked, the black inner cuff, was itleather? Maybe they would have more angles we could get at. We definately need a step ladder this time and measuring tape. LOL Mebbe if we have those lazer pointers we can actually get measurements perfectly. Some guys did a method to use lazer pointers (from the hardware store) or something to get exact measurements. Anyone have the link? Mebbe we can just say we are internet costume publicity/archivers and they would leave us to our own devices. Poor DCB was bombarded for having a flash light- of all things in Aussie. They need to give us all a break. Too bad this is just a hobby and we can't have an instant doctorates degree for studing up on this.

    The real question is.. when can we make bets to see who will lick the glass of the exhibit first? Since KimnCris are already in CA, I place my bets on them! LOL

    Yeah Kim-n-Chris are probably already planted there!

    As it is now... I'm gearing toward the 3rd weekend in October (Fri Oct 21 - Sun Oct 23). A couple friends of mine from the DMEB2 plan on being there too - one from San Diego, the other from Florida (So we're kinda working around what he can get in the way of flights).

    If we do get a TDH group together for a different weekend - I'll try to make it then too... you might have to really.. really twist my arm! I noticed you didn't rule it out Zam-I-Am! Do you think you might be able to make it? *hoping*

    We will also need to make a definitive list of what we want to check out on the costume for everyone's benefit - and if there are any specific pictures anyone needs. Right now I'm not even sure they will allow pictures - the LOTR exhibit doesn't!

    They will allow pictures so long as you don't use a flash or tripod. They expect it to take an hour to make it through the exhibit. There is no time limit but if you are in the way of people and you're blocking the flow of things they'll ask you to move on to the next. Also, one ticket, one entry. There is no reentry.

    MM~ you guys are really really giving us goose bumps, cause Zam I Ain't and Tatertot would haveta go too IF we could... like I said funds are kinda tight... Man.. GotMaul and MM~You two are really really gettin us antsy about wanting to go... sheesh! On Orbitz it's $560 for us to go the same weekend of Oct 21-23. Foxbatkiller- thanks for the info, I am really really ticked cause on my 5 megapixel digital cam, the flash won't turn off, but I have mem-sticks galore. Black electrical taping it would stink! ARGHGHGHG!! I hate having to deliberate. (ZIA does the dramatic sigh) Thanks Excalibui for the lazer pointer link! When my comp crashed, all my favorites were wiped out.

    Well, I finally broke down and went digital - Costco lost one of my rolls of film from C3 *I'm still fuming over that one!* All the pics I had with the celebs and friends... GONE!!! *fumes some more!* Now I've got a good Canon digital camera with a huge memory card and I can turn off the flash!

    In regards to the trip.. If that's $560 total for the 3 of you! That's pretty darn good! If it's each... *gulp* Well... then... Yikes! I'm not exactly sure how we can help... but let us know! Maybe we can get a group discount at a hotel?

    $560 for all three if infants fly free on united, and it would be a non-stop flight.

    I really really want to go. I have some friends from here that are going but it would be so much better to see it in person rather than just the pics .

    I don't know if I can ... probably not.

    Let's definitely compile a list of questions and picture requests for whoever gets to go!!
  17. Sep 1, 2005, 8:50 AM - Re: Star Wars Costume Exhibit: Zam??? #17

    I have every intention of making it to the Exhibit, at least a couple of times.
    I need to see this... take many pictures...
    How can I not being a hour or so away from this amazing opp.
    What day are you all planning to meet up? LMK.
    I'd love to meet up with you guys.

    I found out about it in WESTWAYS (triple A magazine) in the back just a little paragraph on it. I am sure it will be mentioned in the L.A. Times.

    I dont' think it is as big as the MOM exhibit. I called FIDM and they havne't gotten to many calls about it yet.

    It may not turn out to be as popular as MOM, but in my book its a bigger deal. 160 SW costumes on display AND you're allowed to take pictures!

    No flash, and stuck under a yellow light. :/ Unfortunately, Zam will be shipped to New York soon, (I don't think the costume is staying the entire time the exhibit is open, but I could be wrong. Hopefully Res'll correct me..) and taken off the mannequin for the first time in eight years.

    160 SW costumes on display AND you're allowed to take pictures!
    Technically. They include weapons and helmets as "costumes." There are no Imp. outfits aside from two officers stuck in dark corners and AOTC Chancellor's (Royal) Guards. They /do/ have the Imperial helmets though, among others. Most of the outfits are from the Preq's, with maybe eight or so from the OT.
