So if you have been to the Rebel Rumbling forum you may have seen this:
Quote:
Good evening/morning/afternoon:

We are hoping to celebrate the worldwide community of Star Wars fans in a special way this year, on SW.com, with your pictures, taken by your local and area landmarks. I'm sending you this email because I believe you are creative and might have great ideas for pictures. Some of you have blogs and websites you can post this request on and share it with your clubs and friends, and we'd love it if you would.

All of your pictures need to come with the attached form, signed by you. You can use one form for multiple pictures, but you need to list all the pictures on the form.

Here's the easy list:
Share this email with your Star Wars friends.
Take pictures in your Star Wars costumes with your local landmarks.
Turn in the pictures with a signed copy of this form (email or fax) to [redacted](FAX: Attn: Mary Franklin).
You can start turning them in at any time. The sooner the better!
The deadline is April 22nd to turn in pictures. But we'll start putting them up soon after we get them
Be sure to name the landmark, and area/city/country.
Have Fun, and May the 4th Be With You!

Mary Franklin
Sr. Events Lead
LucasfilmHere's the from to sign and send:


So I was thinking about suitable spots to really get the feel of Auckland, as we don't have much time- photos will be edited Sanday evening and emailed with the form then. We will just squeak by but should get in there!

The best places seem to be on the shore so we are looking at trying to get some of the cityscape and bridge in the back ground and can try and make some family friendly jokes about the Sky Tower. Rangitoto would also make a good backdrop. Either way the shore gives us best options which we will be scoping this weekend, hopefully.

The other project we can work on at the same time is the All Wings Report In query:
http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47204

The LFL request is an open invite so we'll be inviting other groups to join us as well as using it as a chance to get photos of all current Naboo members and fun stuff for our facebook page. So if you have been lurking (I see you out there) please send me a pm to let me know if you want to attend. I may have a couple of spare costumes. Again as this is an open invite we are able to share costumes so let's do it and get a big group!

I know Phil, Craig and Andrea that this is very short notice but if you can make it we would love you to. Otherwise, find a local landmark and we can add you in to the big old email we'll be sending Smile
Giganto photos can be sent to our new spiffy (able to be passed on to future COs) email addy:
rebellegionnz@gmail.com

Okay we have done some scouting this side and the carpark at Chealsea Sugar Factory is going to offer best options for angles but more importantly keeping us safe from the public (we can all part in a good spot to create a screen of cars) and there are relatively few members of the public there anyway.

We will do the photo on Saturday but if totally rained out will keep Sunday in reserve.

The plan is to convoy from Matt and Kristy's house for those without GPS as it is a bit of a windy road, after 1pm (between 1-1.30) text and fb messaging will be on if you are running late.

M&K's house will also be open after 10am for those requiring assistance or for those who may wish to borrow a costume (I have a pretty adaptable Leia costume with belt and wig if someone wishes to borrow it). Any shy lurkers please just send me a PM and I we may be able to wrangle costumes (My Rachi Sitra could work if someone has their own pants and belt. I can also get you in touch with someone who might have more appropriate kit Wink

The rain is supposed to be settle in for a while, but I am keeping an eye on the reports anyway. Worst comes to the worst we poke fun at ourselves in Auckland and point to the sky Wink

Between 10-1 is a time for any special assistance or socialising Smile I'll be painting and freaking and wondering why I have a headpiece I can't even really put in a suitcase... Also to help find extra bits and pieces that may be needed to finish a costume.
At 1 we will look to start the convoy to the site, so arrive around now if you are ready to go.
At 1.30 we should all be on site and ready to play dodge the raindrops Wink hey, rain is an Auckland icon so it still works.... Wink

Yeah, any time from 10am is cool.

We won't have everyone arriving until after midday, aiming for departure to the site around 1-1:30pm, but the earlier start allows for catching up, costume tweaks/assistance etc.

The weather forecast isn't ideal, but the cutoff for this project is early next week, so we'll have to hope for at least sunny/dry spells in which to snap a number of photos. The area we are shooting at is mostly asphalt, so we don't have to wander through wet grass or mud or anything.

Today's weather posed a few challenges, but in the end it provided impetus and opportunity to get a lot of fun photos as well as the more "official" pics.

Thanks to Rob C who acted as our primary photographer, and Tanya G who expertly backed him up and snapped some great additional angles.

A lot more photos to sort through and upload, but this one shows the location, with the Auckland harbour bridge, skyline and Sky Tower in the background:

Sorry you got tied up Craig.

I think there's a very good chance we'll organise something like this again in the future, just for the heck of it.

Andrea if you are having trouble logging in to the forums more regularly I have been posting direct links when possible to the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/RebelLegionNZ specifically for those with handy dandy mobile devices more readily at hand than a full computer Smile

It was a really lovely day and we hope to be able to do more of these just for ourselves to get records of our work and to have a day of fun. Maybe too much fun with lightsabers and a lone TK but hey... Wink

There are a few costumes in the works for some of us, so we will hopefully coordinate and get approval photos in some fun scenery around town, wherever we are;)

And I hope the Metservice report for severe storms has been exaggerated, the map sort of shows a lot of activity in yours and Craig's area.
