For those who attend, have fun and take pictures. Vader in cuffs would make a nice photo on the home page of the Sunrider Base web site.



Lesley, a lot of San Diego Star Wars fans will be attending WesterCon at the Mission Valley Marriott. I'll be at WesterCon but I'm working a table for an artist.

I don't know if  we can swing the Vader thing but we will see.  Now the opening is at 10:00am.  So we should meet there at 9:00am to suit up and meet in the parking lot.  I will be there so look for my Black Explorer (Angelheart DJs logo) or my white Tercel.  I'll be there hanging out until 9:45 at which I will then go inside.  I do Vader, But I perfer  not to.  I like being just a simple, moe them down Jedi. 


Should get lost or need help in anyway call me....(714)404-6092... anytime!


Master,


 Rob B 1... out.

I went Saturday. It was a fun event, even though it reminded me of IGN. The crowd was very reasponsive and for the most part respectful. Except for a few ignorent people. I would do it again sometime, but I would like to know which line goes with which pass.

Well it had to be better than Westercon here in San Diego. It is almost dead; very little traffic. Linda has been manning the SDSWS table by herself.

Putting Westercon in SanDiego so close to ComicCon was probably a bad idea actually--people are saving their cash for the big event


;(

Also, Westercon is on the same weekend as AX. I don't know the details for Westercon, but I'd be willing to bet a bunch of people went to AX insted...

 i went on Saturday and wanted to look for my group before buying my pass But the lines to get a pass were CRAZY long there were probably 1000 people in line!!!!!


I got frustrated,hot,then got a mean headache from the heat...so I went to go eat then came back about 2hrs later, and fouind out my group was waiting in those Mega lines for 1 1/2hrs to get in


There were more people there than I have ever seen at AX, Lots of cool Costumes, I did take a few pics of the costumers and of the SCG..http://www.southerncaliforniagarrison.com/cgi-bin/album.pl?album=Anime%20Expo%202006;photo_height=480

The lines at Anime Expo on Saturday were ridiculous.  The registration line-up started at 8am although the Exhibit Halls didn't open until 12.  People were waiting in a 2 hour registration line.  There were few employees or volunteers and those that were there were untrained and un-informed.


Dan and I were lucky as we were only going to purchase an "Exhibit Hall Only" pass and didn't have to wait in the 2 hour line.  The problem was, no one could direct us to the designated area for the passes.


Finally found the table (with no help from the voluteers) and got our passes.  We went back out to the parking structure and got into costume (me in Red TK armor and Dan as Anakin).  As we got into the Con Center lobby, we were mobbed for pictures.  Couldn't walk 2 feet without 6 cameras flashing in our faces and attendees asking us to pose.  Then, an AX employee asked us to "Stop posing for pictures" as this was causing an unsafe traffic situation.  We thanked her for her intelligence and understanding and decided to go into the Hall.  Problem:  ANOTHER 2 hour line to get in!   We loitered around the lobby a little longer in hopes of catching up with others from the 501st/Rebel Legion.  We saw Rob (RL), Lewis, Jhon, Nathan, Dini and Gene (501st) and made the decision to get inside, but got sidetracked by more pictures and distractions.  I finally grabbed Dan and went directly to a Security/Door Attendant and smhoozed (read: Jedi Mind Trick) our way past the line to get in.


Once inside, we were again mobbed for pics, but really enjoyed ourselves at the smallish exhibit area.  We even got to volunteer to escort a load of donor blood from a Red Cross Blood Drive across the main floor to it's transport vehicle!


Overall, despite the general disorganization of the event, it was a good day and we represented the RL and 501st well!

How did the Vader escort go? Or did it? I thought Rob was doing Vader?

I talked to Rob at the July 4th parade. He said he was "costume-hopping" and the walk-through didn't work out.



Considering the crowds and confusion, I can understand that.
