Kylo’s temper always gets him in trouble! Mike remember that time in Arby’s ? I never thought we would get the bell back from him!

Grandkids, right?

Typical, lol

Tombstone Time Travelers Photoshoot

This event is happening this Sunday in Tombstone. I plan on going just for fun and have some photos taken. I do live in town and we can hangout at my house after the event!

Tombstone Time Travelers' PhotoshootOctober 15, 2017, 12:00pmTombstone Historic DistrictFor the past two years I organized Star Trek/Doctor Who photoshoots in Tombstone, since both Doctor Who and Star Trek featured stories set around the infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral. This year I figure what the heck, let's open it up to other science fiction/time travel characters! I want this to be MASSIVE shoot, so anyone from the Southwest is welcome to join us! I will look into booking a professional photographer as the event draws closer.

-We meet at the Courthouse at High Noon.
-We've officially booked @[526205427432381:274:Tao Photography] (the official photographer of Tucson Comic-Con) for this event! Please bring $10 to help cover his fee.
-Please try to stay with the main group so everyone has equal opportunities with the photographers.
-I try to run these democratically, but if you would like a certain shot in a certain spot, speak up! I cannot anticipate everyone's desires.
-Treat your fellow cosplayers with respect. In the immortal words of Wil Wheaton, "Don't be a dick."
-I can't believe I have to say this, but please shower before coming. B.O. is a no-no.
