Hey, all.  Just wondering who's going to WonderCon this year.  For those not familiar, with WC, it's the largest annual con in Northern California, and will be held in San Francisco at Moscone West Convention Center from Feb. 10-12.


http://www.comic-con.org/wc/


The RL photo shoot is tentatively scheduled for Sat. Feb. 11.  The San Francisco Fan Force, the Sacramento Valley Rogue Force, and the 501st will all have tables there (hopefully next to each other).


Hope to see lots of rebels there!

I'll definitely be there... we've already had our hotel reservation for months!


My husband and I will be driving to SF on Friday evening, and then we'll be at the convention Sat and Sun.  I promised him I'd be in the 501st picture this year (I wimped out and played photographer last year), so I'll probably wear my Mara Jade costume on Saturday, and then go as Aayla Secura on Sunday.  I can't wait to see how things will be set up in the new building!

I will be there all three days with two costumes (Jedi and TIE Pilot).

The SVRF may not have a table for themselves, but may be stationed at another group's table if we can arrange it. Some miscommunication with the organizers.



I hope to see a lot of new faces and some old friends.

This will be my second year (I'm still a bit of a newbie). I'll be helping man the SF Fan Force table on Friday, and hanging out Saturday and Sunday as well.



I'm not sure yet what costume(s) will be worn. If there is no rain I'll try to wear the Padme Purple Senate dress for a while on Saturday, although it's not practical for going to panel discussions in! Fallback costume is Leia.

I'll be there Friday (probably) and Saturday (definitely).  Hey, maybe I can actually make it to the RL group photo this time!  *gasp*  I kept missing it at all sorts of cons.

Do we know when the photo shoot will be? The 501st shoot is at about 8:30 am Saturday. Can we do the RL in the afternoon so those of us pulling double-duty can change?

I'm thinking of having the RL shoot at 12 noon, since there's a lot of panels and other things happening in the afternoon.  Weather permitting, we can have it in the Yerba Buena Gardens across from Metreon by the MLK waterfall.  There's also the round stage area where we recreated the Jedi Council two years ago.  If someone ahs the Padme picnic dress, I could recreate the scene in AOTc with you by the waterfall!

While checking the convention time I noticed that it's in a new building this year.

Across the street in Moscone Center West.



Don't get lost.

Hi, everyone. 


I just wanted to post a quick note that it was great to meet and talk to some more of you this year at WonderCon.  I probably could/should have met a few more... but I tend to be pretty shy when I'm not hiding behind my keyboard!  So for those of you who I saw but didn't chat with, we'll work on that some more next time!


The convention itself was a lot of fun... the response to our costumes was overall very positive and the people who asked for photos were both appreciative and polite.  (Well, except for one girl who seemed to think it was okay to drape herself over my Twi'lek costume as if we were posing for Playboy... sheesh!)  The costuming club tables attracted a lot of attention, meeting Timothy Zahn was very cool, the group dinners were fun, and the masquerade was terrifying but ultimately a real blast!  I'm already looking forward to WonderCon 2007!


For my fellow photo-hounds out there, here's a site that has links to websites with photos from the convention.  There are quite a few FanForce, 501st, and Rebel Legion folks included in the photos.  Enjoy!

Too bad we didn't get a pic of Anakin and Aayla together, Pam.  Next time, for sure!

Sorry, I'm really behind in getting WonderCon photos posted.



I did upload this Rebel Legion Group photo today.
