The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I will not be attending and actually Memphis is our last confirmed event unless we get another table.

Thanks!

Odds are good that I will be attending. Smoky Mountain ghostbusters will be there. We do have an open spot in our room if someone needs a bunk.

I have prereserved my room, anyone attending I would highly recommend you do the same.

Also please be advised the seafood bar is very pricy but very good. microwave meals and fast food are going to be your budget friendly options for this venue outside of standard food vendors there.

Meadowview resort is an area/regionally reknowned golf resort so if you have any golfing fans in your family, you can definitely have an excuse to have them come golf while you have fun at the convention.

I plan to rock the predator in two different costumes for two days, and will be sporting face paint. I am thinking it will be next year before I can start on my first sculpting adventure. I have pre-arranged to have soul case face and body art do the face and arms.

I am halfway thinking of rocking randy savage one day. I just need to find a good prom dress for wifey in the meantime as that is the closest match I can figure on a miss Elizabeth duo costume setup.

OK, I have put in a request for a panel so we can have one of those again.

I have stressed the need for power.

I have also message coffee with conapalooza to see if we can get a spot on that as well while at the convention.

I will be working on getting my equipment box to be a little more movement and display friendly ahead of the con.

I have a few parts on order so I can finish putting my motion tracker and smart gun demo setups in sealed displays.

I will also try to focus on getting the cuddle cam setup finished as well.

We have a 10 minute spot with Conapalooza TV. I am hashing out the script with them. I am taking a very condensed form of the 45 minutes of monologue I am preparing for a radio spot.

We have shore power.

We will be in the hallway again.

I have asked for the ability to set my case down and use as a set top additional table space.

I am working on upgrading my existing props to be more con and transportation friendly form.

If I am lucky I may be able to showcase a preliminary smartgunner build I am working on.

I may be able to get a prototype build out on display for a couple of predator props I am working on as well.

Well the more that show, the more that can bunk up and lower lodging costs...

I am trying to wrap up my prop upgrades. And odds are looking good for a primitive premiere of my smart gunner costume.

And odds are looking good that I might just be able to do an initial unveiling of my smartgunner costume.

The panel was streamed on our facebook page. I will be doing a video on post con gun maintenance. I need to add loctite on a few bolts. The smartgun was a huge smash and on target hit.

Any pics of the smartgun or links to FB? I tried to look them up but I'm not that good at it.

It is being called a mini dragon con. The facility can support up to 80k people. They hope to grow it to be as big as dragon con.
