Star Wars Celebration and Darth Vader is done.... well almost.

As of writing this it is the 12th of July and Star Wars Celebration Europe 3 is 3 days away. Tickets brought and email printed so I can pick up my pass and the hotel is booked. All that is left for me to do is to pack my Suitcase and bags. I do not really know how I feel about Celebration right now i am very disappointed on how they are doing the talks for the main stage and the prices of the autographs and photos. The doors open at 06:00am for people to queue up so you can get a wristband for the talks you want to go to. That is very early and a real pain in the backside, this means that I am unlikely going to be able to see the talks i wanted to. Now the one good thing is that the other stages don't need one so I can see the talks broadcast on the other stage at the same time. But it wont be the same as being in the room. On the other hand there was only 3 talks on the main stage I wanted to see  anyway and the rest of the interesting stuff is happening on the other stages. Apart from that I can not wait for this Con it will be an awesome 3 days. and it's the first time I've gone to all 3 days. 
Then there's the Darth Vader armour....

OK Darth is done it's complete I've done everything I can and wanted to do in the run up the convention. It has been a long and at times a hard road but it was worth it. I am very happy with it. 

It is hard to believe how different it looks compared to what it looked like when i got it back in 2007. It's a completely different helmet a Night and Day transformation. And the rest of the suit looks different as well.

So wheres the photo of me in FULL Vader... well that will have to wait for the next post. Don't want to give away any spoilers away now do I!!!
This is a short post as I am getting ready for the trip and there is still a lot to sort out and doing this while also working it's not easy to find the time. But hopefully the next post will be a big one.
