This is a fun convention. Please post if you want to be in the Way of the Force: The Jedi Trials.
Organization:*: GMX
Event Name: *: Geek Media Expo 3
Venue / Facility: *: Millennium Maxwell House Hotel
City:*: NASHVILLE TN

Start Date: *: 10/22/2011
End Date: *: 10/22/2011
Start Time:: TBD
End Time:: TBD
Event Website (if any):: www.geekmediaexpo.com
Approximate number of attendees:: 1500-3000
Number of characters requested:: Open Invite
Characters requested:: Rebel Pilots, Jedi, Royalty, Rebel Troopers, Droids
Please list additional and/or specific character requests. In addition, besides the : - A Wookie, Any available Jedi Knights, Droids

Can you provide a secure changing room/staging area to accommodate costumed attendees?: Yes
Please (briefly) describe the event and your organization's role:: Way of the Force: The Jedi Trials - a fun-filled obstacle course at GMX. Youth from the Oasis Center, our charity sponsor for the Geek Media Expo, will be on hand. We need SW cosplayers to help make this event a success.

Additional details:
For the event in question (Way of the Force: The Jedi Trials), we would like to extend an open invite to members of the 501st planning to attend GMX to participate as part of the obstacle course. This won't be "Ninja Warrior" but, a fun, light-hearted event (with obstacles including "Kick Jar Jar to the Sarlaac" and "Disco Dance with Lando") that we anticipate will be a significant draw.
As we are still building out the event, we are very much open to suggestion. You might have a member with a unique costume or two that might inspire a particular aspect of the obstacle course. In particular though, the following additions would be very helpful.

- Approximately 10 Stormtroopers
- A Wookie (for a "Free Chewbacca from his Manacles" segment)
- A Boba Fett or Mandalorian Trooper
- A Darth Vader of Darth Maul
- Any large, menacing creature (I've heard rumors of a Wampa...but a Tusken Raider would work just fine too).
- Greedo/Rodian
- 3 or more droids would be fantastic! R2 units, Gonks, whatever you have on deck.

We are open to suggestions as well for members committed to attending GMX. Most of all, we want this to be a fun-filled event for everyone involved.

Refreshments can be made available to all participants, and we have suites on the 2nd Floor of the Maxwell House that should be able to serve as changing rooms. This we can do!

We look forward to working with the 501st and creating a Death Star-sized disturbance in the Force this October! Thank you again on behalf of all of us here at the Geek Media Expo.

I planned to wear some of my star wars costumes to GMX. I see that royalty is mentioned so any leia or padme costume I have should be fine. Do we have enough members signed up from the midsouth and corellian to commit to doing the event?

Had a fun time at GMX this weekend. It was good to see some Corellian Base and Rebel Legion members. At only 3 yrs old I'd say the 'con is growing nicely, looking forward to next years.
