As much as it bums me out, I'd like to give up my Chewie slot for the parade. I tested the 90% completed costume on Halloween and I'm just not happy with it. I'd like to toss it all in the garbage and start over with an NFT build, but my wife (the accountant) will crush me to recoup the $1500 or so I've invested into it already. Also, I start my master's thesis seminar on Monday so I won't have as much time to work on it for the next four months. I'm going to put it aside and reassess it in a month or two. Maybe I'll be able to salvage it in time for Celebration.

FWIW, I just posted over on your Chewie topic. You're being too hard on yourself. You've done Chewie proud and it would be a shame to not see him in the parade. Smile I think he just needs a little tweaking but to me, it didn't seem like anything major. (Sometimes I go peek into other characters' topics to see how the costumes are made. So I have a slight idea of the amount of work and time you've put into it.)

Okay, so here's an update on my end...my husband had been anti-droid for the back of his truck...guess what...he's down for R4 now, if needed. In fact, he said if someone wants to ride along with R4 and make his head spin around for a little movement, that's okay with him. Shocked

And BTW, if you read this response first Chappie, your Chewie really does look fantastic! Smile

Lisa could very well ride in the cab to operate his head, and I could stand with my droid in the flatbed if your husband would be cool with that.

He's down for that. We're going to take pictures of the bed so the droid owner(s) can see where the tie downs are. We'll bring some extra straps with us, just in case.

He said his only requirement is that no one sits on the bed box because that's not sturdy enough to be a seat.

I'm good with standing the whole time though we may want to figure something out for me to grab a hold of in instances of short stops n such

I am putting in my push for the parade.
I just looked at the 501st boards and they have 22 persons signed up.
We have more than 40 people in this base over the entire state from the mountains to the coast and from the NC border to the DC line.

I know that we just had Air N Scare but I am hoping that we can get at least 10-15 persons marching on the Rebel Side this year.
We have ROGUE ONE coming out a week after the parade.

Come on out and have fun marching with your Rebel comrades.

My husband wants to know if he can get the dimensions and weight on Lisa's droid. I think he's thinking about building a platform to raise him up just a touch more in the back of his bed. Smile

R4 is 30"x30" is approximately her footprint. And according to Lisa she weighs close to 100 lbs.
The other droid is going to be in the back of the truck temporarily while we are working our way to the beginning of the route and then he is going to roll the entire route. I have furniture mats that I am going to bring to put in the back of your truck to put her on for the short time she is in there.

Chewie is going to be in the back with R4 as well. I have the PVC I think that we used to support him last year at my house. I will bring it with me.

UPDATE

I have received the information for the parade and our order of marching from the parade coordinator.

We are DIVISION 5 , and meeting in STAGING AREA C which is the Redskins training facility parking, just like last year

Our arrival time to that parking area should be no later than 8:30 am so please plan accordingly for the shuttles from the lot.

the Jeep and the truck for Vader and Chewie and the Droids will already be there.

We are listed in the Parade as INTERNATIONAL STAR WARS COSTUMING ORGANIZATIONS but we will be announced in the parade in the order of REBEL LEGION, 501ST LEGION AND MANDALORIAN MERCS.
Whether they go Freedom Base, Garrison Tyranus and Firestom Clan, I am not sure, but that is our marching order.

As usual I am planning on having a dinner Friday night at O'Charley's at Horsepen and Broad Street
6291 W Broad St, Richmond, VA 23230
We usually start around 7
I will post another thread for this.
All GT, Mandos and Rebels are invited!!!
If you need a parking pass, I will have them there.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all members who have helped organize this from the groups.
This has always been a great troop with the 3 groups and I look forward to next Saturday....especially Troy's donuts!

Our groups are #45 out of 93 in the parade and listed as

This year they got it right on the site...lets hope we are good to go on the announcements.

Looking forward to Saturday

This is always an epic event and it looks like good coverage from our members! Hydrate! Start drinking water the day before! Eat and drink the morning of and if you have to use the bathroom there's a port o pottie in the staging parking lot before you hit the buses to go to the Science Museum/Redskins practice field. If you even remotely have to use it, do so or else you'll have to hold it for three hours. Look forward to seeing as many as can attend!

Thanks Troy.
There are usually a few at the Redskins lot too, but once we are there and moving there will be no chance to go again.
