    ...Please Read this entire first page before responding...

    As Dragoncon 2015 has just ended, we all are sad. It's always hard leaving a con that you have had a blast at....

    We all worked so hard on our costumes and we all already have ideas for next year!... So with that, lets start talking about everyone's ideas for next year....

    We would like to personally thank everyone that took the time to show up to
    The 2nd Annual RPF meet at Dragoncon in 2015,
    we had over 55 people show up.
    11986398_784519261659513_1097334901426351545_n.jpg

    It was great turn out for our 2nd meet, and it was wonderful to be able to see old friends
    as well as make new ones.

    We hope that all of you are able to attend again, as well as we hope to meet so many
    more new friends in the future.​

    We will be having another RPF meetup in 2016, and we will be designing a new custom badge as well.

    Ok, I'm awake now, and feeling better. I came down with Con Crud on Monday and that put me out of commission for days. Not to mention I always get Post Con Blues.

    But, I'm back to the land of the living and ready to tackle some new cosplay ideas / new commission work. As well design the 2016 badges for our RPF meet up.

    Don't feel sad, it's only 356 days until DragonCon 2016, you'll be back there before you know it. :lol

    Not promising anything yet,but certainly plenty of time for me to finish my costume (or simply pack my spidey outfit so I can be there,on time and with costume).I'd give anything for an RPF meeting.
    Now,is DragonCon a good start for new members with little or no Con experience?

    Right on, I had a great time this year at the meetup so I'm officially planning on being at the 2016 RPF D*Con meetup again!

    Is it back that I'm already feeling behind on my 2016 build? Probably....

    For those of you that are going to be attending Dragoncon 2016 for sure. I'm trying to put together a big Bill and Ted Group Cosplay for Dragoncon 2016, the out fits for the most part are simple and really wouldn't cost that much, most of them you can get at goodwill or a thrift shop. I think this would be a lot of fun.

    If your interested in joining, let us know on the forum.

    Here's the link to the forum, for the Bill & Ted Cosplay Group:

    I'm deff down, just gotta decide what character to be. Are you going to start a thread for this group? That would be cool, then you can list out all the characters and the RPF folks that claimed them to keep track.

    In the mean time, I'm getting ready for Anime Weekend Atlanta, I'm going this Sat and Sun.

    Then back to long term prop and cosplay projects.

    I started working on some design concepts for the 2016 badges. I'll post images when they are ready. I also am working on a prototype DIY RPF lanyard - a version that we can all make ourselves.

    I'll be around.

    So...Everyone for the most part is over the con crud...

    Were all back to our daily work grind....and still missing Dragoncon...

    So, my question is Halloween is coming up who's done with your costume, who's working on your costume, and what are you dressing as, working on, or commissioning?...

    If you have any pics, please post as well...

    We wish all of you luck on your builds...

    I'm mostly over con crud. I still have a little chest cold that I'm trying to kick out. Chest colds are horrible roommates - they keep you up and make you feel bad. :lol

    BUT...I do feel way better after the strep throat. That was horrible!

    I decided that I'm going to do another Star Wars mashup for my Halloween costume. Those that know me will not be surprised! :D

    I'm doing a gentleman stormtrooper with suite tails, vest, cane, top hat and the nine.

    I'll post pics as it comes together.

    What are you working Matrix? What are the rest of you working on for Halloween?

    As for me, I'm not working on anything for me right now...But I made a promise over a year ago, that my son's Boba Fett costume would be done in time for him to wear for Halloween, even though the costume is being made for the Star Wars Episode VII release...My son has been working on the costume for a while now...with pepakura, he cut everything out him self with sissors...I glued it all and he helped at the end now that he has learned how to use a glue gun...

    Heres the build forum...http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=247514&p=3769542#post3769542

    Dude that's awesome. Have him make me one lol.
    This is the first year I caught the curd and it's still hanging on. Turned into inner ear mess. Fun fun fun.
    Did anyone land a room at the Hyatt? It's sold out. I never even saw a date for the rooms.

    Con Crud hit a lot of us hard this year. I'm still not 100%. I'm having fun with the same inner ear issue too.

    Sucks about the Hyatt, was just on the phone with a friend about booking a room to share.

    I think they open another block of rooms at some point.

    I will be attending DragonCon 2016. This past year was my first year at DragonCon but we had a blast and totally plan on going next year. A friend and I are throwing around the Idea of going as Daft Punk with each day of the Con wearing a different outfit worn by them. Any other Daft Punk Enthusiasts out there wanting to Join Us??

    I will be attending the RPF Meeting!
