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!

All systems are go for launch from Saskatchewan. Destination Houston.

Unless something out of our control comes up, we will see you all there! Hopefully a few familiar faces from the Calgary show in 2014!

Too far and too much money for what I already have planned. Star Wars Celebration London, suit of Terry's armour, and Dragoncon all in 4 months I am money challenged. For those who go I hope you have fun. I will hope for a closer con.

Thanks!

Greg

Due to prior responsibilities here at home, and the announcement of Aliens Day releases, We will be dropping out of maybe attending Comicpalooza.

I was extremely lucky enough to experience a reunion once in 2014, so I will be reliving it again through all of your stories for those of you who are going, and sad that we won't be meeting you all down there!

I might be able to make this. Of course it depends on room availability. Floor is acceptable.

Thanks!

LCPL Easley will be there in full infantry armor. I am missing a TNR shoulder lamp. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Will there be a Colony sweep at the con? Semper Fi!

Welcome LCPL!
For the lamp contact the AL member "Chef". You're in good hands with Rob's creations.

I'm seriously thinking of attending. Who else is going? I'm really not much of a cosplayer, except when it comes to Aliens. I don't know why but I've always been obsessed with this film. I'm a professional YouTuber, are we allowed to vlog at this event?

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to get an idea of how many of you will be going to the gathering of the ALIENS cast at Comicpalooza in Houston next month? I'm definitely going in my USCM armor with my pulse rifle.

I'm really good with visual FX, and am I was thinking of bringing a cameraman and having xenomorph & Colonial Marine cosplayers recreate an alien attack and then I can add the muzzle flashes, blood splatters, pulse rifle sounds, and other sound and visual effects on my computer with Adobe AfterEffects, then publish the video. Would anyone be interested in being a part of this?

To second what Mantroon said, in my experience they are MILITANT regarding cameras and the 'talent'. They charge for pictures, so they don't like anyone taking them or recording for free.

I was at a very similar Aliens reunion at the Calgary expo 2 years ago and the enforcement was absurd.
Some weren't bad. For example Goldstein was great and happily posed for pictures (with a paid autograph, anyways) on personal devices.

However, I was in costume in the Weaver autograph line they asked to check my helmet so they could determine if the camera prop on the helmet was actually recording images. Perhaps a similar fear was behind them telling me I could not take my helmet at all into a prepaid photo op. Board member Moosh was actually kicked out of the event after presenting Weaver with her Legacy gold award and a photo was taken.

This could just have been an overly excited venue staff, but our gut feeling is it was overhyped "handlers" (aka Weaver's people). The bigger the star, the more eyes they have watching you do make sure you don't profit from their meal ticket!

Hey Mantroon,

Given that at the very least there will be 2 of us Colonial Marines there in USCM armor and a xeno, you want to stage & film a xenomorph encounter at some point on Saturday? Then, after the event I can use my computer to add gun muzzle flashes, blood if one or both of us pretends to be killed by the xeno, as well as sound effects and post it to my YouTube vlog channel. I have almost 100,000 subscribers on my vlog channel so it would definitely be worth the effort. Plus I think it'd be fun :D

Let me know if you're into the idea (and any other Aliens cosplayers who read this and are going too, let me know if you'd be willing to join in :D )

Mantroon,

I might be able to help you man the fan table, what does manning the fan table entail? What would my responsibilities be if I helped out?

Just chatting to folks, telling them about the group, fielding any questions people may have. The usual.


Cool! I'd love to help out, count me in! I could probably man the table on Saturday anytime between 4pm and the end of the day. I might have to do a quick 10-15 minute work-related interview, but other than that I'd be free to help give you a break for a few hours, in full Colonial Marine armor of course :delta: :D

Unfortunately I fly into Houston Friday night so I'll only be able to attend the Saturday morning panel "Superior Firepower". Looking forward to it :)
Also, I'm so thrilled to announce that I will be personally interviewing Carrie Henn (Newt), Ricco Ross (Frost) and Cynthia Scott (Diedrich) on Saturday for a video that is being produced for Maker Studios, the company I work for. I will post more info about that too :D
