    Do you have to bring a prop in order to attend? I'm too new to the prop scene to have any completed projects yet (and I've only purchased 2 MR FX sabers so far), but I would love to see what everyone else has done and exchange ideas... perhaps get a little help with some of the projects I'm working on.

    I'm in Arlington.

    "The sun has riz, the sun has set, and here I iz in Texas yet"

    Let's face it, no matter where this thing is held, someone is going to be doing some driving. We picked a big state to live in. However, my vote is for the D/FW area... assuming that a noob with no props get's a vote :lol

    I am working on a couple of things. Depending on how long this takes to pull together I might have something to show (a couple of repainted Nerf guns and a "Craft Store" Jedi Training Remote {similar to, but not exactly like, a Hardware Store Lightsaber})

    Hey eaviii, don't you have a sweet prop room with video games and such? That would rock for a prop party (nudge...nudge).

    Well, the interest is there. :D

    I'd be happy to host it if other options aren't available. When should we consider having it? I believe there are some conventions coming up if it would be easier to host one around that time.

    I'm with the guys that don't actually have any props finished but would love to do some brain-picking on a couple of projects I am about to start. I'd be interested in coming out too.

    That would certainly be cool.

    I thought I'd mention the two Cons coming soon if scheduling around those would work. The Fan Day events at the Scifi Expo usually aren't worth sticking around the whole day for.

    super super noob here, but I'd love to attend. maybe someone has an example of a luxeon or an EL saber. I'd love to talk shop about a conversion. we're planning a home theater and a modest prop collection so it would be great to meet up with people with same interest. My main hobby is classic arcades and besides my Ms Pac I have a Tron and a Star Wars...hey they're at least movie related :D

    just had a baby so we'll have to make sure the warden..I mean wife approves.

    Cool guys- Any day in February is cool except the 16th through 21st (work)- I like Wuhrer's thought of keeping it near the 11th for the Con here but also hear a fair bit of interest in the last of the month- Thoughts?

    The later the date, the more likely I will have completed projects to show off. However, I certainly don't expect everyone to wait on lil' ol' me :lol Working around a con is a good idea just because we might get more participation.

    Like Funky said, the last one was a blast and a half and I have the evidence to prove it. :love

    The bar is set pretty high after the last one.


    Gonna have to see if I can swing another "business trip" right about then. :D


    It'd be great to hang out with everyone again.

    Excellent-Had been watching the thread to make sure that was good for most and I like Wuhrer's idea of keeping it near the con-

    Why don't we say February 11 from 1PM to 6 or 7PM then adjourn to dinner- Sound cool?

    I think I will have to sit this one out. I moved to Galveston, Tx from Oklahoma City and now it is a 4 hour drive instead of the usual 3 hours. I live in the same state and it is futher to drive Hmmmmm ..... Anyway I have a job with an Audio/Visual production company and I am swamped with work and wont have any slack time until the end of march - earily April.

    The date sounds good by personally, I have a problem with the time. The con ends at 6, and if anyone stays till it closes (like me), then by the time they get there the party will be over. Any chance of extending the party time or perhaps starting it later? A few of us are comming from Tulsa and we may not get there till about 3ish. :unsure

    Most of you know I'd love to be there. However, I work weekends now, so I'm a *possible* attendant.

    And for the record, my birthday is Feb. 12th, so if any prop makers want to bring a gift ... ;)

    Feb 11 is good for me.

    The last con was rather dissappointing, and I left only after about 2 hours.
    This next one is much smaller with only one guest star so I don't expect to stay too long there.

    Depending on exact location and time (ending), I'm in. I don't get off work until 5pm, so it depends on how far away I'm going to have to drive, and in how short a time. :)
