I'm mostly liked heading down to Balticon with my Historic Dance group to help host a dance at Balticon. And will be on some programing panels (hatmaking for costumes and what ever else they toss me on).

Many of the people that are running Costume Con in Timonium, MD
in 2009 http://www.costume-con.com/cc27/index.html will be there too.

Great. I'm either getting a ride down there or takin' the Chinatown bus.

Might do Friday daytime at the Inner Harbor (mmm...Phillips Seafood) and then go out to the hotel and con Friday night.

I can introduce you to Marty and Ricky (if you don't already know them) who will be running Costume Con next year and we can pitch having some RL panels at CC.

Sounds great. If you're looking for company for dinner that evening we can surely join you. And I'd love to meet the CostumeCon guys.

I've never been to CostumeCon either but it sounds like a good time. You should come out to Balticon (its a small con but I've met some great people there, like Neil Gaiman!!!). I'm sure CostumeCon would be good for OLG and Terrapin to attend.

OK, I have all my maps and scheduled printed out for my adventure:
Friday: NYC Chinatown to Baltimore via AABus
If I can get a hotel in the area into checking my luggage, I will head down to Inner Harbor for lunch
Then Light Rail Hunt Valley train to Pepper Road and a short walk to the Hunt Valley Marriott

Monday mid-day will head back on Light Rail and then the bus.

I'm sending my cell number to Craig via PM

Ack! Could not get it together to decided what to pack and finish packing last night. So tossing the rest of the stuff in a suit case now. I'm going to be casual most of the con, just some RL and 501st swag, and my only costume will be my Regency Dance gown.

Just not feeling up to draging alot of costumes down, as I have to bring an air bed down as part of my luggage (we have 5 in the room).

I apologize for not being available either, as much as I would've like to be there the holiday weekend just filled up way too quickly with way too much. I hope you had a good time Mary alice, and please let us know if you'll be back again soon since most of us missed you.

Only got to talk to Craig via phone.
I saw Pam (JediMistressDragon)and her husband. When she came over to the Costume Con table to say hello to Ricky Dick,
Ricky pointed out the Pam had the very first costume on stage at CC1 in 1983. http://www.costume-con.org/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.ShowItem&g2_itemId=12

Don't know if I will be down in Baltimore again until CC27 (see http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11970 ). I gave my contact info to one of the ladies that is in charge of programing for CC and will follow up with her about having some Legion panel(s) at CC.
