In the news....

I know haven't updated the blog in a long time. Now that Celebration V is over it's time to take a break and catch up. I did have a lot of fun as it was our first time going to one. I really enjoyed the costumes and how well the different groups designed their sets. It's amazing how diverse the backgrounds of the other fan groups mirror the R2 builders group. You have costume makers, programmers, technician, mechanics & more. I think the best part of a convention is getting to know some of the people you bumped into at the convention. Many I have to admit found me.

One thing I like to do is look at the pictures posted on the facebook groups. It's a blast. So I hope more folks add their pictures to Star Wars Celebration.

Don't use facebook? Don't want to go Pro on Flickr? It's ok. There are sites setup by several papers wanting Star Wars Celebration pictures. Here are a few of them. (I've also added my best clear pictures to them)
The 2nd thing I like doing is searching the news articles for pictures of the event. I get to see stuff I missed. So this time I thought I'd post articles in which our droids picture is in. I know with R2 it's hard to tell them apart.

One of the great things about Flickr is tagging, if the owner of the pics all it. To see more droid picture click here.
