I'm sure alcohol had nothing to do with it !!
I only got to see everyone for a short time in the actual con but the dinner after and the activities after that were soooo much fun. I wasn’t drinking much (unfortunately)so I got to pay clear attention all the shenanigans. Walking into a crowded dive bar in the city and bumping all the songs to play the Imperial March on the jukebox got quite some looks lol

Thanks for starting this, Eric! I just got back home today and am kind of soaking in all of the greatness of this past weekend. Seeing old friends again and finally meeting other old forum friends for the first time reminded me of how much I love my Fett family. Thanks to all of you that made it out to my hometown to show Awesome Con how we at TDH do it. To cap it off with a great breakfast with Jeremy and his wife was too sweet for words.

I have a handful of pics to add to this thread. Most were taken by Nino (Wasted_Fett)

Start with the biggest ones: Meeting Jeremy Bulloch for breakfast. As warm and kind as ever. We were so fortunate to get to spend time with this gem of a human being and his lovely wife, Maureen.

Had a photo op with Jeremy on Saturday afternoon with some of my non-Boba bounty hunter pals. After our shot, the 501st BHG presented Jeremy and Maureen with their very own racing shirts, designating Jeremy as Honorary Detachment Leader with an ID# of BH-1. Was really, really cool. Alejandro (FandangoFett) joined in the celebration:

Here are a few of my friends Marty (Chewbacca) and Ken (Bossk) outside in the hallway by our dressing room. Insane costumes!:

The rest are a smattering of the awesome photos that Nino (Wasted_Fett) took of me out on the con floor.

First is probably my favorite photo of my Fett from the trip.

This was when I first met up at the con with Pat (Skyfire)

This was the best Leia cosplay I think I've ever seen!

Met up with my friend Chloe (@ladycleocosplay on IG) and had to snap some shots of her killer Slave Leia

I had such an amazing time with my bros! I wish we all lived closer so that we could get together more often. That being said, the distance makes these annual meet ups all the more special. Hope to see more TDH crew at future events.

You can see these and the rest of my photos from Awesome Con (in full resolution) at my flickr page: AwesomeCon-FettCon 2018

Sorry to post again, but I forgot that there were some photos on my DSLR as well and I found some that I thought were pretty cool and worth a share.

Found some "behind the scenes" stuff which I thought would be cool to share since we typically only see one another all dolled up.
These were taken when I finally came back to the dressing room for a break after being in kit for about 5 hours. I was exhausted.

Lot's of helping hands here.

This is the face you make when you realize that your break is over and you need to tighten that neck seal back up, toss the bucket back on and go back to work. :lol:

Final steps. Starting the mental transformation into the bounty hunter, donning the bucket, and getting ready to hit the floor again.

Back panels deserve some love and you can spot Jeremy's autograph in my bucket.
