Discussion in 'Washington, DC' started by Cinnea, Jul 2, 2003.
If you all don't mind I would love to meet up with everyone Thursday night at as well.
Please do! I'll look forward to meeting up with you.
And FYI, my sister and I have wormed our way into the FF dinner, so we will be there as well.
The more the merrier, that's what I say!
For those who are arriving early, I'm planning on going to the Coke museum in the afternoon. I figure, my 4th year in Atlanta, I'm seeing at least one thing besides the few blocks around the Hyatt.
So Lizzie, what is a good time for Heather to come tomorrow and drop off our junk? Will you be at home by 4 or is that the time you get off work? We will have a box of boots and weapons that need transportation.
I will be home at 4:30.
omg I am so excited!!!
Ok, I will tell Heather to get there at 4:30. So you and Sha are leaving during rush hour... Nice.
Deep cleansing breaths....
Here's my last minute tips:
Remember your film and a camera battery. And camera.
Bring comfy shoes. Just generally good advice.
Remember your confirmation note or paypal receipt for your badge.
Don't go to the liquor store across from the Hyatt. If you want drinks (including sodas) I'll show you where the good one is.
That's all I can think of.
See everyone in Atlanta!
It was so great to finally meet everyone from your fan force!!
I hope we can do a joint event in the near future.
I think I am starting to feel the effects of Dragon Con withdraw!!!
hey Wendy! It was wonderful to meet you too! I had a really fun time hanging out with you.
It was good to meet you Wendy - even though I didn't get the chance to hang out too much. But the Cruxshadows were on, you see.... Hopefully we can get our groups together sometime!
I had a great time, even if this particular D*C had some big problems and too many cancellations and what not. Back to the mundane world...
Hey Mal! It was great meeting you too! You are one evil lady, my kind of people. Hehehehehe.
I will post a few pictures at some point. I have to wait for Heather to get them online.
Oh my gosh! I saw pics of the painted on slave Leia and the 'Caution tape' girls! I need to go next year
I never saw the painted leia (no big loss there), but I saw the caution girls. Whoopie.
By far the most disturbing thing I saw was an older (and not skinny) woman wearing a see-through spider web catsuit with only a thong and electrical tape. Ick.
More disturbing than Ken's ensemble?
I too missed painted on Leia. Saw some other painted girl though. Hey, paint is at least a "costume." Unlike plastic wrap.
Paint over naked boobs is not a costume in my book!!
I however ignored the con whores and focused on meeting people whose costuming talents either rivled or exceeded my own talents.
Did any of you know I was entered in the Hall Costume contest for my jedi costume? I don't think I won though, but I was happy all the same and it was a honor for me.
I am now about to start my "top secert" costume for next year's big costume contest.
Ken's costume was more funny than disturbing... but maybe that's because I know him. Heh.
Mal... Top-secret? Should I be scared?
Starting now... that's a concept. Maybe I should look into it.
I meet Eugenia and Ken (and also at Shoreleave) (and I'm sure a few others) at the bar at Dragoncon. You guys rocked. Alot of fun to hang out with.
As for Ken's outfit all I have to say is that he was up holding his duties as Spat 3. And he did a great job of being the drunk guy at the bar in drag.
I can safely say that Ken takes his duties as Spat 3 very seriously. (Well, as seriously as Spat takes them at least) And he's hard at work planning that Hyatt Security costume for next year. So keep that Slave Leia handy!
Oh I will!!! It will be too funny!
One question: if Ken is known as Spat 3, then who is Spat 2? Of course this is coming from someone who has never met Spat 1 for that matter; the question begged to be asked.
Spat 2 is Heather - who you've also never met as far as I know. Not to be confused with Spatina. It's all very simple, really. Ken is the only local Spat though, the rest are in the NYC area.
Spat, Spat 2, Spatina... I'm confused ?
Let me as one of the Spat collective break it down for you...
Spat - the regining king of Spatdom
Heather - First Runner-up if spat can not perform he's spatly duties Heather must step in and take over
Ken- Second Runner-up If both SPat and Heather can not perform their duties Ken steps in and becomes Spat.
I (Kathy) was crowned Spatina. I am the female version of Spat. That means... Well I'm not sure exactly what that means but I took it as a complement.
There are also Spatulas which are women willing to hang out with Spat for more then 30 seconds or worse a whole night.
If this doesn't clear it up go to his website www.spatcave.com and you can see how much work it is to be Spat's back up.
Mostly, it's work for your liver from what I can tell.
One bonus of Ken being Spat 3 is that I can now say I'm married to Spat.
