    Dec 27, 2012, 11:44 PM - Minneapolis Prop Party January 19, 2013 #1

    Hey Gang,

    There will be a Prop Party at the Twin Cities Maker shop space, The Hack Factory on Saturday, January 19 from 3PM until 10PM... or so. Minnesota Prop Parties have been known to last much later than that.... and, also, people have been known to hang out our shop, for much... much later than that.

    I've put up a blog post: Twin Cities Maker Blog Archive Replica Movie Prop Party

    The Hack Factory is at 3119 E 26th St, Minneapolis, and a map to The Hack Factory is here: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q...t,+Minneapolis

    Stargate Universe? .... none that I know of. Rook might have some, but I don't know if he'll be able to make the trek down here.

    That's a bummer! I know Scott and Chris have also been talking about having a Prop Party sometime soon. And if turns out as well at the TC Maker shop as I hope it does, we should be able to have some there again at some point. A bunch of us will also be having some displays (The Propatorium) at Marscon (MarsCon - A fan run science fiction convention for all ages!) March 1-3, and at Springcon (Midwest Comic Book Association ( MCBA ) | Facebook - not seeing much new info there yet) in May.

    I hope you can make it, Tony! It's been a long time.

    And for screen-used... I'm not sure. Minnesota Jones has a couple pieces (part of the German Flying Wing from Raiders and one of Indy's holsters) but he's going to be busy on the 19th, and there's a couple who have some Trek props, but they're from out of town and weather can always be an issue in Minnesota.

    Excellent I'm returning to the world of costumes and props after a year and a half hiatus (and I plan to move to the cities in the fall as well) so it would be amazing to meet up with other enthusiasts and network a bit lol

    I've heard of marscon before but I mainly went to anime conventions before. I may just have to check it out this year

    Sounds like a lot of fun!

    Do you need to be a current HackFactory member to attend?

    I would like to know this as well. This is a mere 2.5 miles from my house!

    Nope, you just need to be able to find the place. A few TC Maker members are propishly oriented, but most aren't actively building. A bunch like to see them, but they have other priorities. So we're having the local RPF, 501st, etc., plus TCM members hang out for a bit and geek out over props, whether you're an official member of any organization or just someone curious.

    Okay, here's a link to some pics from last weekend.

    Thanks for everyone who came! It seems everyone had a good time, and I think we were able to educate and entertain some people who may not have been able to see real or replica props before.
