TDH at Dragon Con '07- We would like your thoughts

Star Wars Chick

Sr Hunter
The TDH administration was recently discussing next year's Dragon con and threw around the possibility of doing another forum since it was 2 years since our last. We would like to ask the TDH members your thoughts about this. Is there a desire for something like this and if so, what would you want to see? When would you want it to be (that would depend a lot upon the organizers of Dragon con and when we would have a room available)? Is the dinner on Saturday night enough for you? Do you have other ideas for something TDH could do? We'd like to hear your thoughts and ideas about this. We would just like to have something that would help bring the TDH community together. Thank you very much!

I would love to see another "How To" I think seeing how easy some items are to make would help a lot of people. The give away was also great. Long as I am still making part, I will donate.

I think a how to would be great. I remember when I went to All Con last year I thought it was great that they gave away a custom holster. I also hope to make it to DC in 07.

Hell, I could even bring some of my vacc tables down, and do a vaccuform section. I think ANYTHING would be better then the Star Wars prop/mask/costume making panel they had this year, it was horrendous, was it not Bill?


People were wanting to see how to actually make things, and all they got were a few people showing them their costumes that they threw together that were a little sub-par in my eyes. I want to be able to show people that you CAN do these things on your own, on a budget but STILL make it look professional.

And not to mention they put my garrison CO in charge for all the star wars related panels next year. So I don't think it will be to hard to set something up.

+1 on Gilmore's comments...

I’m all about doing a panel! What I am wondering though, would this be mostly geared towards us, the more hardcore Fett heads, or more of a panel designed for the average joe on the street. Also what is the mission of said panel? To “recruit” people into the world of Fettdom, or to further educate people like you and I that have been pursuing Fett costuming and replicas for years… anyway, I’m just thinking outloud here… in short… YES, panel GOOD!

I loved the last panel and would gladly go to/help with another one. It was cool for me the last time because I was kinda new to the Fett world and was nice to see it wasn't really that hard to do some of this work. As for a time I would think a early day one on any day but saturday would be cool. I think we lost a lot of people due to the time frame of the last one (of course that made the raffle better).

As for other things I would like to see more TDH events, the dinner is great but I love this group and always like hanging out with you cats so any excuse is good by me.

Awesome idea! Once I get my fiberglassing done, I might be able to lend some silicon to the cause...we should also have AFFO$ or Evan come down and do a painting tutorial for us, and we could all bring stuff to show off, too.

I am SO there if this happens! Who cares about school?

Basically our purpose for doing it would be to give TDH'ers some more time to hang out and build friendships and bring our little community closer. Everyone always enjoys the dinner so we thought there might be a desire for more TDH quality time. If we were to do a forum, it can certainly be geared towards Fett. However, if we have folks demonstrating vac forming, leather work, etc, then it would appeal to more than just the Fett world as well.

I figure, seeing how we pretty much have the power to make as many panels as we want next year...we can do, painting, forming, scratch building...what ever we would want....we have the power...

just like heman...

Except cooler because we are Boba fett, well bounty hunter and mandalorians. I think a series of panels or panel would be awesome. Like proper way to do the mustard/toothpaste type method. Theres a near endless amount of possibilities. Im for anything that allows me to meet any of you in person.

in 2006 i ended up travelling to san rafael ca, orlando fl, and atlanta ga for star wars stuff. next year we're going to spend whatever travel budget we have on not-star-wars related vacations ;)

Oh man:cry ... I knew you wern't planning on going to D*C next year, but I sure as shootin' thought you'd be giving San Diego Comic Con a go next year. Darn it ... anyway hope Jodi & you enjoy your vacations. And remember "it's those changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes. Nothing remains quite the same." - Jimmy Buffett

I think a forum would be great. I really enjoyed the one in 2004. It inspired me to build my costume. I made my belt pouches the way Mirax demonstarted and I even emulated the Seeker Rub n Buff demo at the panel at C3. I think a panel would be very useful for those TDH members just starting out. Besides the fun of hanging out like you mentioned.
