So. Who's coming with me!

I've heard several of Steve's talks about "First Cons". I think this may be mine if Steve and others are going. I'd like to make sure there are going to be folks there that I can get in trouble with rather than doing my first 2 cons milling about.

I will not be going -- we'll be in Minnesota -- but if you pass by a tall brown-haired girl playing guitar and singing, buy her CD.  Her name is Heidi.  I produced the CD (the multi-track songs, anyway, not the ones where she's just singing and playing into the microphone).  I don't get any kickbacks, but the music's pretty good.

Perhaps this should be in Gallimaufery or something. Can we make a Cons section?

If there was enough threads about Cons there would be a cons section... but since there isnt, i think this is the best thread for em.

i WISH WISH WISH i could go to DragonCon... but alas... i cannot. (something to do with school i believe)

Me and my wife will be there.  This time we're prepared.  I bought membership in advance so no 2 hour lines.  Also, I got banquet tickets as well.

My wife is going to dress like Tonks from Harry Potter and I'm still figuring out who to dress up as.  It would precedent saying since I've never dressed out at a Con. Used to go as the Drunkest Geek and crash room parties. I'll probably be more formal.

Is she comparing to pics from the film, or just going on Rowling's description?

I've been to a few cons but the closest I ever got to dressing up was Shinji Ikari from Evangelion... I wore black slacks and a short-sleeved white shirt and whined a lot. Smiley

I think Steve said something about everyone too poor to find lodging can set up a shanty town in his yard.

I don't know EXACTLY where he lives but I do know VAGUELY... it's about a half-hour drive, if there's no traffic.  Maybe closer to 45 minutes if you're not certain where you're going.

I'll be at DragonCon this year.  Looking forward to meeting Stephen, if he winds up coming, and some of the other folks I've corresponded with.

FYI, Stephen is over in Stone Mountain, which is about 1/2 an hour from downtown.
