I could go as a Jedi for sure if I had a ride, maybe on public transport. Carrying the costume on a subway and bus would be a bit of a hassle.

Oh darn. Apparently that would add like an hour and a half total driving for me. Sorry about that XD.

Jedi garb is pretty easy to walk around in and not look odd. You could wear your robes and boots and have your belt, tabbards, and saber (disassembled) in a small bag you could carry. If you threw a light jacket on over your robes you would not even be noticed.

Google transit says you could leave at 7 AM and your transit time would be 30 minutes to the location.

Total walking you would need to do would be a little over a mile.

Yeah, I'll probably do that.

I updated with a link, but found transit stuff pretty easy for you at this site:

http://www.septa.org/m/maps/trip.html

You could use this to plan your return trip pretty easily.

Yeah I do use google maps most of the time. They're pretty good at mapping public transportation. That was my alternate plan if I couldn't get a ride.

Updated to show participants.
Sam, can I give the Carida point of contact your last name? You can pm it to me rather than post it here.

Hey Amy,

Is this list closed? If not, I just got confirmation I'd be able to attend (Thought I'd be working). Add me to the list if applicable. Thanks!
