HEY, HEY!!! We didn't steal everything on sight... merely speculating a triffle at the Holy Grail a bit and wondering how much can we sell it... before the blasted Jedis chased us off. *mutter, mutters*
More seriously, a HUGE thank you to each and every one of you who are involved with this, whether you are sweating heavily in a 'fat suit', swinging a lightsaber, tackling issues with the organisors, running like a mad thing herding your characters around, doing the jewelry or DVD sales, handing those weird ass yucking/yakkety yahoo rattles, doing promo, taking photographs, driving gigantuan overly-cute heads around in your car and turning up to cheer us on... please please give yourself a great big pat on the back for a job well done.
It is such a pleasure working with each and every one of you that I am all excited with the thought of having another event like this, ASAP! I am terribly sorry if I didn't have much time to actually sit down and mingle with some of you during the weekend. To all the new people I have met and old friends I have not seen for a while... gods, I know it is fantastic to catch up. So to all involved... even if you are not at the carnival grounds physically... Thank you Couldn't have done it without you guys. ;D
Some quotes from the CinemaOnline forum: "I went there today, in time to see people in darth vader, stormtrooper, the compact size tie fighter pilot, mr vendetta,the pirates, the ice age bunch, the nazghul, err someone from lotr or gladiator, 2 x men mutant and a batman. my only highlight there was to take pictures with stormtrooper, vendetta and the nazghul."
"I'm totally impressed. Particularly the stuff in the glass showcase and the all-day walkaround movie characters. Really gave it the movie feel. Should have had a lot more showcases though. I'm sure there are a lot more special and interesting movie props and articles hiding in places we don't get to see or know about."
"Took pictures with Batman, V and Ringwraith. Damn, I missed Stormtrooper and Darth Vader though. Only managed to catch them on stage. Cool costumes. Great event. Enjoyed the event. Thanks to CO and whomever involved!!! Like what Rico said, next time, make it real LOUD!! Maybe all the forumers can come dressed as their favourite characters next time!! Should... Must..."
"Wow, had a great time there.. took pic with Batman and all the Star Wars characters.... "
