I've been planning this with a few others via PM so here is the public announcement/invite:

What: Wookiee Worx Prop Party
When: Saturday, April 28th, 2012, 11am to "when the cops come"
Where: My house in East Nashville (address will be sent via PM)
Who: Anyone who needs help with their props/costumes and/or wants to learn how to make a life-cast
Maximum Attendees: 10 people
Projects/Demos:
  • Hand Life-Casting with Alginate: Cody is doing life-casts of his hands for a Kit Fisto costume. It'll be done soon so he might start sculpting at the prop party.
  • Stone Mold Making: Dan and Tambo are going to make an UltraCal 30 mold of a new Bossk arm sculpt.
  • Gungan Project: We might do some molds for Dan's Gungan project.
  • Wookiee Worx: My dad, Corey, and I are all working on Wookiees. My dad will just be starting his, I'm working on my new mask, and both Corey and my dad need measurements taken for their bandoliers.
I've never hosted a prop party before so I'm going to limit it to just 10 people and see how it goes. Maybe next time we'll have more.

Rules/Caveats:
  • No bullshit. You know what I mean. Leave the drama at home.
  • Booze/Drinking: I don't mind if you drink but it's BOYB and don't get carried away. If you get sloshed you're not staying.
  • Clean up any messes you make.
  • Stick to the backyard and detached garage. Use the house when you have to go the bathroom, but let's keep the mess out of the house.
  • Help yourself to my tools but not my roommates'. If you're not sure which are mine just ask.
  • Don't park in front of someone else's driveway. You might have to walk a bit. Think about car pooling.
  • I don't build armor so I may not have the tools you're looking for. I have a dremel, a mouse sander, a circular saw, a jig saw, an electric drill, a cordless drill (aka screw gun), as well as plenty of wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, sockets, lots of sculpting tools, wig making tools, etc.
Plan:
We'll wait to do the handcasts until just about everyone is here. They won't take more than an hour minutes. Dan and Tambo can start laying up the clay wall for their mold.
Cody can start sculpting his hands as soon as his casts are done.
My dad is starting his Wookiee so they'll be plenty of opportunities to see how that works.
I'll be working on my new Chewie mask.
We'll take measurements for Corey and my Dad's bandoliers.

We can do whatever until the cops come. We might cook out, go to a movie, whatever.

The List:
  1. Me
  2. Doug (my dad)
  3. Corey
  4. Tambo
  5. Robbie
  6. Dan
  7. Cody
  8. Sgt. Dark
  9. GhettoStew
  10. Trout

I'm probably going to do a monthly prop party like Corey used to.

Updated the main post. Collin is out for the foreseeable future. Two others are in so it's full for the time being.

Updated the main post. We won't be doing the head casts, obviously, but here is what we will be doing:
  • Lifecasting Cody's hands
  • Making a stone mold of a new Bossk arm
  • Helping my dad start his Wookiee suit
  • Taking measurements for dad and Corey's bandoliers
  • Working on the Wookiee mask
  • Maybe some work on Dan's Gungan project
