    i have an extra room at the hyatt im trying to share out because the group i was going to have managed to get their own and didnt tell me until after i had already booked. looking to put 5 (but can do six if i get three couple or something) for 300 per person, everyone pays their own parking. if you know anyone who needs a slot feel free to contact me. i cant do a transfer because i would lose priority booking on it and the points from the room will push me into the higher membership levels faster, which will put me where i can get the exact same rooms every year for the people i already have standing deals with. the extra room i have this year, i can do out as individual shares but my hope is to develop a standing group that will take the room every year. i have people who i have a standing arrangement with that i handle the rooms and they just pay me. started off because i would catch a slot in one friends room or another every year. i end up getting a message from three people saying that since i had dodged handling the room for so long that this year it was MY turn and THAT is how i found out that there are THREE standing groups that all thought i was part of the arrangement while i thought i was just catching a slot with a friend. since im on disability and have more free time to handle stuff ive just kind of fallen into the roll of handling the rooms at this point.

    It's been a bit quit on here, so I'm going post to try and get everyone talking...

    So, who has actually started working on there costumes for next year? We all always wait till the last minute like a month or two away from the con, and then kick our self's in the but the whole time,and say I won't do this next year but we always do. So is there anyone that has actually started working on things early?...

    So as usual I have shared our meet up on Facebook forums / groups. I have shared this event on about 10 plus groups, for Dragoncon and RPF...If you all have any groups or friends that you would like to share / invite this event with, fill free to do so. We are always excited to meet new people and members of the RPF,

    I've started gathering materials for some new costumes for next year. Stephanie is excited to be part of the Matrix universe of next year. She was disappointed that we only had on cosplay that we actually we in coordinated costumes so for next year are going to have at least 3 that are from he same genre. Ive got lots of sewing to do.

    hey, if anyone wants to give this a shot, im trying to plan out the paint scheme for my Deadpool armor and trying to figure out how to work with the specific parts im using since im combining SEVERAL different armor elements. i know that along the way i will be able to get it worked out but figured if anyone wanted to take a shot at it and help me with giving some starting points to work with and then i could fine tune it. anyway here are pics of the various parts: Mass Effect blood dragon helmet i started on but trying to get the eyes right Click image for larger version.

ID:	680761 im also going to be using the abdomen wrap and cod from the Varia suit becaus the nordic torso actually has cutouts in the foam design i made the paper edit from that will allow that to be shown. im adding assassins creed hidden blades to each forearm and mounting the Tron Legacy disc on the back of the Nordic torso

    Got mine last week. I always keep them in the same spot in my closet so I won't lose them. I did a little dance when they arrived. Stephanie really thinks I'm silly over d-con but she knew I was a geek when she married me!

    Man I'm so busy with work I haven't been on the rpf in weeks. Where is everyone. I guess everyone is like me. Working crazy hours and no time to work on props and costumes. Bump to the top.

    Yeah, usually that's how it goes this time of year. Everyone's working, catching up with money and bills from Dragoncon, just to save up for Christmas....Then start all over again.

    Personally I haven't worked on any costumes or props due to the fact that my car broke down, so I have to use my time to fix my cars...then I'll be back at it again...

    That's how it works:/. Im probably not going to be able to attend even though I wanted too. Im going to StarWars Celebration though so I might see some of you there. Can't afford to hit up dragon con.

    Yeah, I can understand. Dragoncon can be expensive. This will be my 5th Dragoncon in a row, and it's not cheap...splitting hotels and such helps a lot on the wallet. If you plan on attending Star Wars Celebration in Orlando you might want to check out this feed...I'm trying to get an RPF meetup for that con as well. Thanks.
