    What: Harry Potter party before the book pre-release parties
    Date: Friday, July 20
    Time: 7:30 pm
    Place: Ish has gracefully offered her place, PM her or me for directions

    Come to this party before the party! Bring some snacks or treats, come dressed in your favorite wizard/witch/muggle costumes, be ready to watch one of the movies, and at 10 or thereabouts, we'll split to go to our pre-release party of choice at various bookstores! (Though some of us will be headed to the BYU Bookstore one.)

    Why?: Cause... with so many Harry Potter things already going on this month and two birthdays of FanForce members, it was just easier to combine the FanForce activity with something already going on than try to get everyone together for a 5th or 6th time. ;)

    Sounds fun, though I know that Ish and Kate have plans for that day already.

    Yes, we're tragically/happily going to a pre-midnight showing fundraising showing for my mom's school.

    Ah, yes, but they can still come to the midnight showing and see it again, sillies, as I already pointed out. :D

    Only if they can make it from Salt Lake in time. Which I hope they can.

    Well, I guess just so long as our party isn't the same night as the real Harry Potter Party at Barnes and Noble. ;) I work there. There's no way in heck I'll get out of it. ;)

    EDIT: Oh wait, wrong Harry Potter. ;)

    Well, it's confirmed. Me and Katey will be seeing Harry Potter 5 at 6 p.m. on July 10 at the Gateway. We'll let you know if we're coming to a midnight showing as well.

    BYU Bookstore has it for $24.99 and you'd get to hang out with us. Isn't that incentive enough? ;)

    Mia, if you'd like, once you've finished the other ones, you're welcome to borrow mine until they have it in paperback or you get it for a birthday or something.

    Oh, LOL, don't worry, I was going to ask one of my many friends if I could borrow 7 when I'm done with the other 6? [face_love] I plan on getting them all in a boxed set anyway, remember? Hmm, the question is if they're gonna release a boxed set in hardcover or paperback. [face_thinking]

    They'll probably do both sets, but the boxed set for 1-4 hardcover was $70, and for 1-6 in paperback was the same.

    I'll be bringing my hair and makeup stuff to the party on Friday, 'cause for one I have to do Ish's hair and makeup. So if anyone wants anything done, lemme know. I'm apparently not doing B&N, they never got hold of me.

    Hmm ok. Then it'll be a matter of deciding which one to get. Hmm.

    Coolness! We should also decide which movie to watch beforehand to make sure it's available. I think my parents have them all on DVD.

    I ended up getting my book at Barnes and Noble. I wasn't able to make it to the pre party activity because my friend and I were busy making finishing touches on our costumes. But I did end up getting a lot of compliments on my costume, and requests for photos. It was a really fun night.
