So, I wanted to see about arranging a TDH dinner. Over the next couple of weeks I will need an accurate count. I will keep the count in this thread (at the top). I will arrange dinner somewhere around the con for Saturday night at about 7pm. Unfortunately I will be out of town and not available until that Saturday. (PW - may need a little help here if that's cool). I will try to do Mexican, Italian or something to keep it within everyone's budget.

Okay, one more thing...
No promises here, but I do some video production in the Bay Area and have a green screen set up at my office. I may be able to break this down and get it to Wondercon on Sunday if anyone is interested in being photographed in costume. I will have to try to get some help to get the lights there and need to find a place to do the shots. Wish that Brak's was going to be there to help (I am not the greatest photographer in the world), but he is tied up.
Anyway, if there is some interest I will do what I can to help out and get some shots of folks. Greenscreen is not big enough for a group shot, but I can get two or maybe three in at a time I think. We can drop in some backgrounds afterward for you. I have a friend who won some awards for his pics, so I may be able to get him to help.
You know I'll be at the dinner Jon for sure and I'll be buying the beers too only thing is, I got to be back for the Masquerade at 8pm. you can also count on me for help to set up with whatever you decide to bring. I think the green screen is an awesome idea. I'll PM you with my cell number when we get a little closer to the WonderCon weekend.

Ah yes, the Masquerade! Well, how about if we do dinner at 6pm? Will that work for everyone? I will put it down for now unless I hear from a lot of folks that it will not work for them.
What's the Masquerade? I know what one is, but what is it at Wondercon?
Costume event with prizes. Costume needs to be almost entirely scratch built though, very few purchased parts - they are pretty picky about this usually. A Boba Fett costume might make it in (my son's did) but a TK suit probably would not. They almost never accept Vader they told me - unless the helmet is fully a scratch build.
Anyway, they have a judged show on Saturday night. It's about 50% costume and about 50% performance (what you do while in the costume).
Usually it gets booked up early, at least at SDCC. Not so sure about WonderCon and the participation.
TDH will be sponsoring an award for this at SDCC.
Fett's easy, he just has to stand there and look cool!!!!!!! 8) contest over!
Lol - yeah, sort of.
Here is my 10 year old son at SDCC last summer:
AHHHH man, that was awesome Jon. did he win anything?
Thx B1. Yeah, he won $200 supposedly. We'll see if the check ever shows up though
he'll have to suit up again and hunt em down Bounty style
I will be at wondercon Sat. during the day but I have a 501st event to do for the Cub Scouts Birthday at 6:00pm and the theme is "Star Wars" so I unfortunatly won't be there for dinner. However I'd love to buy you guys a beer during the day if you would like.
beers all around
It doesnt look like my friend is going to make it. I'll need Bounty ONe for a dress-buddy on JAngo. I'm also taking my TK since I got that Hyperfirm MG34, need to put it to good use. I should be good to go for dinner on Sat. Small group huh?
Yeah, looks like maybe I will be able to buy everyone a drink
Hopefully we'll get more as the date gets closer.
Sorry to hear that your friend won't be making the Con Jango 5204, I'm pretty much in the same boat. not to worry though, we'll help each other out. I think the list is small because people are undecided as to go or not but I think their will be more people added to the list as we get closer to the date. looking forward to meeting everyone, this is going to be a blast none the less. a friend of mine went last year and he said it was a lot of fun.
Sadly I won't be able to make the dinner. I'll be suiting up and getting ready for the Masquerade. It'll be the official debute of my TEC/TimeCop agent costume.
