As Joel mentioned earlier, a few years ago I made a promise that if we ever got 66 or more approved RL/501st/Merc costumes to march in this event, I will buy the first round of drinks for any and all marchers at BW3's after the parade.

If all 66 people wish to join us for lunch I will "order 66" drinks for the whole party.

That promise still stands, but this is the last year. Hell, if it happens I can see a t-shirt run for this! Mr. Green

They do need to be approved 501st/RL legion or Mando Merc costumes however to count toward the 66, so we still need a few more people.

Go call your Legion and Merc friends!

So I have a modified Hasbro Force FX Kit Fisto saber. Can't get one of those fancy colored blades that custom sabers can use. And, since lit sabers don't really show up in the sunlight, I thought of a possible solution. I'm going to get some green cellophane wrap and see if I can at least give it an appearance of being lit. Has anyone else ever tried this?

I would say hilts only again for this parade this year since I doubt we could get EVERY Jedi a blade by Saturday

BUT

If we want to do bladed sabers for an eventual parade, I would say we should have ALL Jedi do blades in or hilts only

meaning every Jedi would need to go to the custom saber shop and order one of these:






And yes they just started carrying them in purple in the thin walled.

The thick walled blades only come in Red Blu and Green at the moment.

You'd need to get a blade cap too and then cut the blade to your desired length as they are 40" long or pay an extra $0.50 to have them cut it.

it hasn't changed....we normally do not carry sabers during the parade.

Sabers are only carried off belts during night parades or during ceremonies and at standing events.

I would prefer that we all still kept to that and just did hilts on belts as usual so we can interact with the crowd.

thanks

At this time it appears that we have lost out Embo and Ashoka. Nikkki (Ashoka) was in an accident the other day and while she is fien her car is totaled.
Sam (Embo) has no vehicle either as it went kaput. So unless they find alternate transport from C'ville those two are out unfortunately...bummer, but I am glad NIkki is alright.

Hilt on belt. Roger. Saves me some time.

John, I can't use those colored blades. My saber is not custom. It's a Hasbro FX Kit Fisto.

Really sorry to hear about the car issues. I know how it is when the unexpected happens and you have to drop out of an event. It happened to me 2 years in a row on this parade.
