    Aug 22, 2012, 4:55 AM - UK FETT COSTUMERS UNITE #1

    Hey Guys

    For the past 18months or so i have been given the task of Promoting the RPF in the UK by getting all RPF UK members together to showcase their props at well known Conventions, after 2 very successful events we are now looking for ideas to make the following events bigger and better.

    The TDH is part of the bigger picture and while we have had a small representation from the TDH at the prop parties, we feel the TDH can play a bigger part.

    So in light of this we want to achieve something this November at the next RPF prop party and that is to have the biggest gathering of Fett Costumers ever assembled in the UK for the ultimate photo opportunity with Jeremy Bulloch

    What ever Fett Costume you have be that ESB, ROTJ, SE, JANGO we need you to come along and take part, please support the TDH and the RPF and get behind this one off special occasion.

    cheers

    I'm interested, though November is awkward for me, with both mine and the misses birthdays in the same month.

    When and where exactly will this be?

    This epic event will hopefully take place at the Memorabilia Show at the NEC Birmingham.

    I say hopefully because the UK Garrison will not openly endorse the event its putting off some of their members, however even though they will not endorse it or get behind the idea they have said they will not stop anyone taking part. Art has given it his 100% backing from an RPF/TDH point of view

    we estimate from start to finish that the whole thing will take about 2 hours that includes you guys getting ready, heading to the RPF/TDH stand for photos and then publicity shots for the general public which i would imagine will be mind blowing for them.

    there is a face book page for all the latest updates http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fetts-...87563404632850

    Really getting concerned that the same People are signing up for UK prop Parties the TDH has so much to offer these Events.

    Its a combined RPF / TDH event and it takes a lot of organising to secure some of the biggest events for us to display at and also get together to meet one another.
    If your a TDH member your not restricted to just bringing along your Fett related Props you can bring anything thats movie related.

    Ive also been trying to organise the biggest gathering of Fett Costumers in the UK for the ultimate picture with Jeremy Bulloch again the interest in this is very disappointing, ive had no word back from the UK 501ST.
    This is totally independent of them its a TDH event to bring together all Fett costumers again i cannot move forward on this with you guys signing up to appear.

    Please if anyone has any thoughts on why there is little or no interest from UK TDH members id be interested to know, and concentrate all my efforts of just the RPF instead.

    Come on guys, this is one great event and having done it twice with Si and guys from the RPF its lots of fun and a great 2 days, also with the fett thing which just adds to the cake so to speak, sign up for it I will guarantee that you will have fun just displaying your stuff and talking to people why we love all things Star Wars and other movies too, I will be there and hopefully with a fett costume done and also a Jango on display with other stuff like snow commander helmet and atat, maybe I will jump in with my xwing pilot gear on just to mess with Fetts head, COME ON AND SIGN UP TO THIS SUPER EVENT.

    I will try my best to make it, but due to getting wed the following month, my finances might not let me..

    If I can get there, then add a (ex ukg) ESB Fett to your list.

    Thats great Mate,
    but as this is an RPF/TDH event and photo op your costume doesnt need UKG clearence as this is nothing to do with them, as long as your Fett Costume is finished and Good which im sure it is then your eligiable for the TDH photo Op

    This is a one time Photo Oppotunity to get as many UK TDH Fettsters together for a Unique photo with Jeremy Bulloch please spread the word

    I am still having no luck in generating interest for this unique opportunity.

    For a one off time Only to gather as many Fett Costumers in the UK for the Ultimate Fett Gathering.

    Please come and join the face book page and support the TDH and RPF if you know a UK fett Costumer please get them to sign up.

    Unfortunately im still getting no Backing for the UK 501ST on this however they have said they will stop no-one taking part on the day.

    It will be a First in the UK thats for sure and a pretty awesome sight if we can achieve it.

    3 possibles ........ pretty disappointing really.

    Just to confirm with everyone, i know all the Garrisons Rules and red tape policies (i had a hand in making a few of them back in the day) but this is just a one off One time opportunity for all the UK TDH Fett Costumers to get together for the ultimate picture with Jeremy Bulloch............ i can't believe how hard this is to get together, i honestly thought everyone would be up for this.


    The UKG Garrison have said they will not endorse or back the picture opportunity however they will not stop any of its members wanting to take part.

    Hey Jake
    it doesnt look like this unique opportunity will take place mate............ i cant get no backing from the UKG, they will not endorse it and the interest in taking part is pretty much dead in the water......... its the same old people turning up flying the UK flag for the TDH .......... the ones you can rely on if you catch my meaning

    shocking really !!!

    Well, if it makes any difference IG88 will be there ,( car /finances willing), so theres a large gunmetal hatstand that any Fetts are welcome to get 'shot 'by ...camera wise ... he also does a great line in strangling people !... (see knightcon photos farcebook)...
    Also , providing I can make it , ROGER (battledroid )will be there too so any clones or deathwatch who want a shot with him.....
