Ya, they aren't my favorite places to be either....As far as the Haunter house goes, I've already got them ****** at me!
Here the 25th I messed with the people in line to go in...I asked were the line started, the woman in her 30's or so told me "right here" so I turned around and acted like I was getting in line with her...I've never seen so many people in a line, and old people running it get upset so quickly.

Now...Considering I had messed with evryone that day already, I would of assumed they would of known I was joking, but they got preety upset either way. So I....or The Joker anyway, isn't welcome back there.
I thought it was hillarious, as did all the little kids there, but the adults and old woman running the line, not so much.

I found the Imp Knights and the Cade and Talon Comic packs at Marion Target while I was there yesterday.


I had a realy good time yesterday, I met the Batman, Princess Leia, a Jedi Knight, and Darth Vader at Illinois Centre Mall for their indoor trick-or-treating. It was extremly warm inside, and literaly right before I started applying make-up, my nose started running. So I left make-up off of it untill right before we left. About an hour into it, my nose started running again, and after we left, about 20 mins. later, it was absoutly stopped up and running.

So aside from getting sick at the very last moment possible, I had a realy good time. I got tons of hugs, and was asked to give a lap dance.
All the little kids were amazed to see us, it was never "those people dressed up", it was "Batman, Darth Vader, the Joker,etc" They realy enjoyed seeing us all there. Having seen only what, two Rubies costumes before, I was pleasently suprises to see other Jokers there. One only did a make-up job, which was ok, and the other two, one a man, and the other a woman were together. He came in the suit, and her the nurses outfit. They were the most unfriendliest people EVER. I thought I'd be nice, so I introduced myself to them and asked them about their costumes....They wouldn't even answer me hardly. They were just realy rude. It was like it made them mad I dressed up or something....I actualy had other people come up to me and tell me they prefered me to them though, which was of corse always welcome, (
) but the main comments were that I was much more approchable than the couple. They just struck me as realy...well, I can't realy describe it, it was just realy weird.


On the other hand, there was this little kid who realy got a kick out of me as the Joker...He walks up with his family in his Ninja outfit and says "Whats wrong with you?!? Batman's a super hero! Why you try and hurt Batman for!?! He's a super hero Joker! Why you try and do that!?!?" LOL! After that, I introduced myself to "Yoda", who is a realy talented guy...He walks on his knees up and down the mall just like Yoda, it was crazy. But as I was talking to him, the same little boy comes up to us and goes "JOKER!?! What you doing to Yoda!?!? Why do that? What you doin' to him!?!?" LOL, then come to find out, he was terrified of Yoda!

My other favorite moment was at this little chinese place inside the mall. The lady seated people realy close to where I was standing, so I walked over to by them, leaned on the fence, and said "Hiiii, I'll be your server today...What ah, what can I get you?" The lady closest to me looks over and goes "I'll take a lap dance."

So ya, hugs, Yoda, stuck-up Jokers, lapdance....It was all there.

Vader -

Yoda -


Our other pics. didn't turn out to good.
Also, my frakkin' pants...I thought I'd have my new ones...so....ya know...the old ones suck.


So realy, what have I learned? Before the DVD release, I want new pants (ASAP), my shirt material, and a lighter blazer. I want new shoes, and suspenders, and then after that, I want a new coat. So....I still hate those pants. Worst I've ever seen.....Frakkin' things...

I just picked up Bail and Breha organa at Target, Tie did you get the other ones. General Greivous is all new, scaled larger and arms that snap together. Faie I think but am not sure is from the battle of myteggo.

Faie is from the DarkHorse "Republic" comic series...that's really all I know about him though...

Not sure about the new Greivous...it would be nice to get one with decent arms that split though...

That FX-6 is the most bada** figure ever. I picked it and Breha up at Pekin WM the other day. They also had Stass Allie, but I passed. The other figures had been taken. The Grievous is to scale now, that's why he seemed taller TIE_Pilot23.
