OK, here is the deal we have for this convention (I just came out of a meeting with the con folks).

We have a free table WITH power. Approximate area of space 6'x10'. They STRONGLY request that we do not acquire additional tables at the con. If we need additional tables for our space, we need to let them know now. They are currently only providing 1 table. The table is going to be located in the Hallway, so when we decide to break down for the day, we will probably want to take our display items back to our hotel rooms.

We will have a changing area (shared with the 501st and the Mando's).

We will have access to the Con Staff suite. There will be munchies available to us there.

We are required to do 1 panel per day (reserved times are early afternoon/late morning). We are responsible for a minimum of 3 panels.

We will be asked to provide escorts for some of the major guests.

We will have some sort of role in the opening ceremonies. We are currently also going to be introduced in the opening ceremonies.

We will be given 15 badges for this convention. In order to receive a badge, you must be in costume. We will also need volunteers to do panels, man the table, and be part of the opening ceremony. (NOTE: I will collect the badges, so when you arrive at the convention call me and I will meet you and give you your Badge.)


A few things that need to be noted about the convention center.

It will be crowded. They are pretty close to capacity of the hotel/convention space.

There are only 3 sets of public restrooms in the hotel. They are rather small (especially considering that there will be over 2000 people there.

There are 2 additional hotels in easy walking distance if you do not get into the main hotel. There are several others within a mile of the main hotel.

Parking will be at an extreme premium. There are not a lot of spaces available.



I have to have the list of panels we are doing and the list of personnel receiving the passes in no later than December 1.

Also, they would like to run a promo video for our group on their ROFCon TV. We need to make arrangements to shoot a short introduction video.

It's gonna be hard to come up with 3 panels if we don't know who can make it. Could we do the same panel 3 times?

Here are some ideas:

1. Intro to the Rebel Legion
2. Intro to SW Costuming (joint with 501st, Mando Mercs, etc.)
3. Jedi Costuming
4. Armor Up (discussing making armor for costuming)
5. I made a SW costume...now what?
6. SW Costuming - Movies vs. EU

Just a few I thought up. Again, it will depend on who can make it.

Unfortunately they will need a list of who is attending absolutely no later than December 10th. On that date, I will have to return the unclaimed free passes.

And those are good panel suggestions. I had already planned on doing a Meet the Rebel Legion panel and a joint panel on soft costumes with the 501st. The idea of possibly discussing hard armor techniques in cooperation with the Mando's and possibly the 501st also seems like a good one to use as a possible third panel.

I know you are only the messenger, but that is just not realistic for most people to commit without knowing work/family schedules. Allot can change between Dec and the end of Feb that can change plans at the drop of a dime.

Do you happen to know what the admission will be if we had to buy a pass for the weekend?

Or can we just say we are going to reserve a pass now and then back out if we have to closer to the event?

It is $45.00 at the door.

You may want to reserve one. I Should be able to transfer until the first of the year.

This is a new corporation, and they are still learning how to deal with more than industry guests. (the corporation just acquired Nekocon, so a good relationship will help us there also).

Oy! Well, due to multiple schedule battles at my workplace I have absolutely no idea what my availability will be that far ahead, although I do know that I would not be able to get there in time to do a panel on Friday.

And what's this about a video?

My goal is to be at the con, don't know if that will mean having a hotel room or not yet but we shall see.

While there being no ShevaCon this year is a welcome relief to the wallet, have to be careful about what it gets replaced with. I'm intending to get as involved as RL things need me to be at both this con, MarsCon, and the Wizard World ComicCon coming in Sept.

Looming out there somewhere is DC Con but I haven't heard much from that since seeing the Chair at DragonCon, I wasn't sure if that would be in Northern VA or actually in DC which would make it Terrapin territory so we'll see. I might be personally involved with DC Con so I also have to consider that as well.

We definitely want to try to impress and make the ROFCon people happy as Engineer has recently updated me that their aim is to buy out every single VA Con they can get their hands on.

Actually they just want to turn Hampton Roads into a convention supercenter. I do not know if they have plans to leave the Greater Hampton Roads area, but they do want to load up the calendar with conventions.

Due to other family obligations, I won't be able to attend this.

I am on hand between now and then to aid in any prep work that needs to be done.

Just let me know.

Depending on the time of my obligation, I may be able to attend part of Saturday, possible morning to noon and then Sunday.

I will need the absolute final list of people planning to come to the con by Saturday January 25 (I am talking to a new person now, so the previous deadline is of course gone). They are making the badges and everything so that there won't be a long wait for us.
I will be picking everyone's badge up (at least the 15 people on my list), so you won't have to wait in line.

We will be doing the following 3 panels:

1)Meet the Rebel Legion

2)Soft Costuming (cloth costume parts and makeup). This panel will be co-run with the 501st.

3)Non Imperial Armor (armor that is not imperial like RFT stuff, clone stuff, etc.). This panel will be co-run with the Mandolorian Mercs.

Cris, Cam & I will still be there Smile

I can help with the first 2 panels - I don't have any armor yet for the second, but Cris is working on Cam's armor, might could bring some sentra to show, etc...
