    Hey mdb, that would be great to catch up again.
    Last time we met was at the Wellington Armageddon expo, you were wearing your malificent costume and before that Darth talon.
    You have some great costumes plus it would be good to catch up, if you can bring anything down for a look see I'd love to see your silurian head piece, that was a great costume.
    Do you have any shots of you in that, my daughter would love to get a copy, she's doctor who mad.
    I have been out and about, just spent 2015 exploring other communities and this year in a spiral of sadness and health extra sadness But things are picking up now which is why this meet sounds like perfect timing Just got to work out how the NZ Medieval Faire works in

    http://www.arrayedindreams.com/costu...madame-vastra/
    For Madame Vastra That was a bit of a rush so another project I'd like to cast. I can finally repair the mold thanks to finally tracking down a supplier of ultracal! They are a dry wall supplycompany in Wellington, if anyone else is looking. http://www.nzcds.co.nz/

    Hey mdb, thanks for the info on supply of ultracal.
    I have never used it but knowing there is a local supplier is a great help.
    I use trig instruments at the bottom of ngauranga gorge for my clay, two part plastic resin and silicone molding rubber.

    I know you havent been too well in the past, hopefully you will have more days that are better and can help with your dilemma and with those good days they may help carry you through the bad.
    Know this that there are those out there who really appreciate what you do and I being one will try to help in whatever way possible, thank you, you to me are a real inspiration.

    Another guy from Wanganui? Wow! Would you have been the guy I saw sporting some white armor at Trafalgar Square a few months ago? Looked like a white Master Chief or something... didn't get a good look as I was on my way out...

    Yep, sounds like FlatPlat - he's a whiz with foam and his Master Chief is really impressive.

    Thank you Seriously, thank you Another hospital day stay tomorrow, never fun but kind words make them better. My friend is keen to come too and so we can arrange transport and accommodation soon. Maybe organise a photoshoot along the way And positivity also makes for enthusiasm to finish projects Hoping to finish Rebels season 3 Ahsoka this summer Saving for casting latex again and boosting enthusiasm at the same time

    Go team Kiwis, looking forward to meeting everyone properly!

    That will be great to see you and your friend, is there much of a change with ahsokas costume or is it pretty much the same as season 2?

    Now we have to sort out a day for our visit.
    We have Saturday, Sunday or Monday.
    I have thought maybe Saturday its the beginning of the weekend and there would still be two days left for people to enjoy the rest of the weekend.
    I don't think Monday anyone would want to be travelling back to their hometown and get stuck in traffic.
    Also there maybe some who are otherwise occupied on a Sunday morning, what does everyone think.

    Saturday is fine for me. I can host the event at our place, with (hopefully) a side trip to a nearby collector's home.

    That would be great if this could be done, that is all dependant on 1/ how many turn up and 2/ if it is alright with the owner of said location to go visit.
    Sounds great if this could be done, a lot would be impressed.

    Sweet, looks like we have the day and date, we have the location now it looks like we might need to do something about what to bring (food wise).
    Drinks chippies etc etc etc.
