Motor City Comic Con 2012

While R2-D2 and I were at Motor City Comic Con on Friday May 18th, 2012 Chewbacca and R2-D2 decided to take a stroll.  Look at who they found: Mary Ann (Gilligan's Island), Will Robinson (Lost in Space), and Eddie Munster (The Munsters)!

Well, Star Wars Celebration VI has been announced: August 23-26, 2012, returning to Orlando, Florida.

I've created a countdown clock to help me keep track of how many days I have left to plan...!

Sunday, August 15th: Day Four

Sunday was a shorter day, since it was the last day. After the group R2-D2 picture on Saturday, I left the Mickey hat on my R2-D2. Since several people loved it and took pictures of my R2 just because of the hat, I decided to leave it there for the rest of the time R2 was in the R2 room. I did take it off to bring my R2 to a friend's commitment ceremony (she & her husband were already married, this was just for fun) but she didn't end up needing my R2-D2 since another had gotten there first with the C-3PO...but my R2 stayed to "watch" anyway.

We were going to leave for home right after the R2-D2 parade, which was at 2:00, but I kept finding people I hadn't talked to yet and it took a lot longer to get going. It didn't take long, however, once we were on the road before all three kids zonked out!

(This is a horrible rendition of the slave Leia bikini, but my kids wanted their picture next to the mannequin anyway...)

On our way home...

Saturday, August 14th: Day Three

Saturday was probably the busiest day, which is also to be expected. We had the R2-D2 group photo that morning. I had gotten my R2 a Mickey Mouse ears hat (blue hat/silver ears) and I decided to have my R2 wear it for the photo, so it would be easier to pick him out of the crowd.

After our R2 room duty was done for the day, we took the shuttle bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios for their Last Tour To Endor party; which was a lot of fun even though the humidity was oppressive, even after the sun set.

Kinda small, and blurry, but it's George Lucas!
