My daughters dance group had a "Halloween Disco", and somehow my wife persuaded me to dress up although she wasn't bothering.... I figured that a Zombie would be too much for the younger kids and thought a friendly looking devil might be okay.
I wound up not dressing up at all this year; I'm just escorting the 5 y.o. around. I quickly realized that it will probably take me 4+ months to create an outfit for him, so that was out the window for this Halloween. I almost pulled the trigger on purchasing a custom Jedi costume, but then he went nuts over a questionable-quality Jango outfit at the mall - go figure!
At any rate, here's the Jango outfit being prepped on the little guy; he'll make a good merc!:

I may have either crushed some kids dreams or set him up for success. He saw my saber and freaked out, when his mom asked me about it I told her the value but was sure to say that it was a high end one. She asked me how much for a "kids" one and I told her the cheapest I have sold one for. She looked surprised and the then ushered the kid away with words of "maybe for Christmas" the kid was obviously disappointed. However one of my friends heard him on the way out saying "that's what I wanna do when I grow up!"

I attempted a Star Lord Costume. I had almost everything except for the mask/helmet. But I was having to use a lightsaber for a cane and of course as soon as people see a lightsaber they think Jedi. Maybe Star Lord stole a lightsaber from a Jedi. LOL I will be ready next year though. I am almost done with my Star Lord Helmet now. Plus it gives me time to make my costume more screen accurate.
My son and I went to Halloween, and then the C4 Comicon (C4 = Central Canadian Comic Con), as a Jedi/Sith combo. We even did a lightsaber choreo/demo for River City Jedi at the Con. Unfortunately, these are the best photos (and apparently the few) we have from C4. Memo for next year: take better, or at least more, pictures.
Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.
Except when nerf herding; then all bets are off...
lkstarkiller: I can't believe it, usps delivered my Roman mk1 to someone else. I really hope he insures his packages for the full price. I can't afford to lose $400

scarecrow: That happened to me over Thanksgiving and my neighbor brought it over. You still might get it.

lkstarkiller: I really hope so. It said it was delivered on the 12th though and I have been home the last two days. You figure if someone else got it they would have dropped it off to me today.

scarecrow: My neighbor was out of town and it sat on his doorstep for five days. I thought for sure it was stolen.

ARKM: Dang! I hope you get your saber.

Rogue Five: This has happened to me before and coincidentally (or maybe not?) it was also a Roman's MK1 I was expecting. Tracking showed it as delivered but it wasn't. I decided to wait another day before contacting the post office and sure enough it arrived.

Rogue Five: It's happened a couple of times with Amazon too where tracking says "delivered" but the package shows up the next day.

lkstarkiller: It doesn't, it just says delivered front porch december 12th

scarecrow: Call the local post office and they can do something call a geo trace. That allows them to pinpoint the address it was delivered to.

lkstarkiller: I'll have to do it in the morning since its 3:40 am. I probably won't sleep at all so I will go when they open.

Rogue Five: I think it'll be in your mailbox tomorrow but still best to make the PO aware of the situation right away in case your package was indeed lost. Really though, this happens more often than you think. It'll be there tomorrow.
