That's pretty cool man.  I think I'd be nuts by the end of the show if I was walking around in a costume though.

That's awesome!  Cool costume too.

I wore my Jedi costume all through C3, though admittedly that is a lot more forgiving than a Tusken outfit.

I used to sand blast and paint for 8 years at the biggest ship yard on the west cost,NASSCO.The mask is a not as bad as the sandblast ones and i made it out of a hard hat so there is room to breath. there is also a rubber tube from my mouth to the filter outside so i breath outside are. there is no need for fans but the next one i put together will have fans and tusken sound built in.

Here is another clip i found.

Yeah, I saw a set on Ebay a day or two ago for $20 or $30.  Way to profit off your freebies.

I saw this guy from San Diego that I had sold vintage stuff to in the past ask for 15 Fett fans and snag a wad of cardbacks. You'll be seeing the stuff on Ebay I'm sure. I couldn't even complete the cardback set and I was there all 5 days.I did get the Jawa on sunday and the Maul key and that's it.This years Con had a way different feel to it. I didn't enjoy it as much.

Well that was fun registering for this year's Comic Con.
The link in the email didn't work for the first three minutes. Then when I got in I was number 18102. About an hour later I completed my registration for thursday. Four day passes were gone in half hour while saturday disappeared about fifteen minutes later.

Yeah! That sucked  I had to go to the CC website and go in that way. I got Thursday and Sunday. I wanted Friday as it is Star Wars Day but it was sold out. I'm trying to get a PRO badge for the hole week but I don't think that will happen, I've sent them an email. I'll wait to see if the San Diego Star Wars Society will have a booth and try that route.

I forgot to buy Friday badges on the Second Chance resale, I remembered 45 minutes later and all tickets were sold out again.

So who is going this year? There is a breakfast in Seaport village next door. 

On Friday, July 13th at 7:30 am, Star Wars Action News will be hosting the 2nd Annual Star Wars Fan Breakfast! Last year I went to this and it was a small event, really laid back and I got to sit next to Stephen Sansweet so we talked about the Con and vintage collecting. Next table over there was Gus and Duncan signing their book. All in all, a highlight of the Con. Two days latter I ran into Stephen at the con and he came up to me and remembered my name, we hung out for about fifteen minutes the he said he will see me next year.Let's see if he remembers my name.

From here it doesn't seem like too many folks, solrac.  You and JACKOFTRADZE are going and offhand that's all I can think of.  I'm not sure if I ever would want to...  Such a nightmare of people from what I've seen!  I think I'd be overwhelmed, and overly annoyed. :P
