This is the year, dang nab it!
« on: May 22, 2009, 01:04:10 AM »

I just ordered the first (I think) of the Dawn series so I can understand the Dawn contest better.  Looks like I'll like it, and who knows.  Get be drunk enough, I might enter the Dawn contest.

I will need a cheering section. :)

Ever feel like you're drifting from friends?  Sigh.

<shakes that off>

Yep, gonna finally read Dawn.  I also need to watch Buffy before the con as well.  So not into this stuff...  ;D

If you're "not into this stuff" why are you planing to watch Buffy?

It's an awesome series.  One of my all time favs.

Because I've always wanted to, but back when it was on I worked nights so I never got to see it.  Honestly, even now unless it's cartoons or something about history or ghosts, I tend to not watch TV.  I am, however, addicted to "Heroes", "The Office", "30 Rock", and "Amazing Race", none of which is huge for costuming. ;)  Like right now, even though my kid is no where to be seen, I'm watching "Back at the Barnyard" on Nick.

I'm kinda weird with my costuming that I feel I need to be knowledgeable about the series/movie/comic that I dress like.  I don't want to be a poseur.  This is why you'll never see me in a Star Wars costume although I'm old enough to have seen it when it first came out (once sitting through four straight showings during a snow storm), but I don't feel that I know enough to dare dress as a character.  I'd love to dress as Jane Grey/Pheonix or something out of LOTR, but I only know the movies.  Thankfully I was into The Watchmen before the movie, so my Silk Spectre I costume is ok in my head, although it will be the movie version because it has a corset involved, and if I get to wear a corset the costume is a go.  Just like I have no problem wearing anything from Harry Potter because I about have the books memorized. :)

So back to Buffy...I belong to the Whedonverse board, and the only thing by Joss I know by heart is Dr. Horrible, but I want to know more about Buffy so I can be more involved in some panels this year.

Guess I'm just weird that way. :)  Oh, and my comment about not being into this stuff, I meant it as I've never seen it so I'm not into it like others who have watched it.

There's a simple idea.  Dress as a cheerleader, schoolgirl or anything, then add a DragonCon twist by getting face paint at the toy store and become Zombie cheerleader, Zombie schoolgirl, etc.  Or just dead cheerleader.  'Course vampires are the thing nowadays maybe you could be vampire cheerleader, in keeping with your Buffy studies.

I'll be honest I was a huge Buffy fan, back when.  I moderated a discussion forum and wrote detailed episode synopses for one site.  The show really hit it's stride in my opinioin with the two-part conclusion to Season Two - Becoming, part 1 & 2.

Thank you, I try.

I haven't been back since 2006.  Then I bought a professional quality lab coat and made a silly ID badge.  That's what I plan to do this year as well.  It's not flashy, but it's useful.  It has five pockets for my camera, extra batteries, snacks, program, etc.  And slits in the sides allow easy access to my pants pockets for my wallet, hankerchief, etc.  It won't win any contests, but it does the job for me.

And just to keep on-topic, this is the year, dang nab it, that I return to DragonCon after a long absence.

I hated Buffy the movie & then got sucked into series.  From there, it was Angel, then Firefly & "Once More with feeling" is one of my fav things to do at DC.  (it's just a great big sing-along).  The yr Joss cancelled DC was one of the worst blows I ever had.  Whedonverse rules! ;)
