I'd really like to meet other wookies. I'm in charge of the Droid HUnt, so I might miss out. Smile I'm going to try.

Its a rare day when there are more than 1-2 wookies out on the floor at a con. Being that there could be as many as 5-6 is extremely rare and a photo op that you will not want to miss out on. pics


oh, and there are slave Leias there too!

I know. I might have to take a break from the Droid Hunt so I can be part of the action. I finally finished my Chewie. I've still got hair everywhere.

Leia's you say. I actually have a few friends interested in this as well. Got a lady Han in our group too. I think we will be there.

Will do. I'll have on my one of 501st Clone Trooper shirts on. So if some guy comes up to in suit it's just me. Maby by CVI I'll have my wookie done so I can get in on the group shot.

Man, so where was everyone? Marty, Chris, and I managed to show up. Bob texted me saying he wouldn't be able to make it to the shoot. We had a blast.

Other than the three of us, I think I only saw one other Wookiee the whole weekend.

Ryan, did you end up going to DragonCon?

I think I might have been your other wookie. I ended up dealing with some Droid HUnt mess and ended up getting sick the rest of the night. So I missed out, I did however make it out on the Marriott Lobby's with my friend as girl Han. I got called "Chris" "Mike" and a few other names before we kindly informed them that he was a she and I only knew you all in passing/forums.

Sorry I missed out. Sad I'm still bummed out. One of you did share an elevator with a wookie? That was a friend of mine in my suit, which is funny because he never wants to "dress up" but all the woman asking for hugs and grabbing his arse. He is sold on being Chewbacca next year. LOL.

Maybe I can catch you all at Celebration.

Haha. Reminds me of when Bob first started suiting up. Everyone kept calling him Matt!

We definitely need a get together/photo at Celebration.

So I had to share, I'm beside myself. Really its my wookie costume and me in my Rex armor. It makes me chuckle. Poor Brian (a friend) he lasted about 45 mins before his feet hurt and his face ached from the mask.

I'll make a photobucket folder in the next day or 2 and post it up.

There are TONS of pics on Matt and my FB pages as well.

So for anyone who says being a Wookiee isn't worth all the work, may I proudly present the following as evidence to the contrary......

The defense rests, your honor!!!!!!!!!!!!
