I am still looking for people to interview for the show.

What would you like to see me cover this year without bother the major panelists?

Andy Teal, who runs the Pyrdon Academy board for the Doctor Who'verse costumers/cosplayers who hang out at Dragoncon (march in the parade, have video-and-photoshoots, a big group dinner, etc.) and other cons, has an appeal for any DW, SJA, and TW fans and costumers in the Atlanta area right now, and any DW'verse fans and cosplayers who are arriving early for Dragoncon next week: basically they need help finishing up the parade float.

If you are a DW'verse costumer and attend Dragoncon, please consider joining the Pyrdon Academy board here:
http://www.prydonacademy.com/ . It's free and takes only a minute to sign up. Once you are on the PA board you can contact Andy direct about helping in the Dragoncon Parade Float thread. There's a direct link below for those of you already on the PA board.

Under the cut, is Andy's request for help w/ the D*C parade float:

Hi everyone:

I am happy to announce that I will be doing a series of videos at Dragon Con this year for my new video blog,  "Hello World with Miyah Sundermeyer."  Also be sure to check out my first videos premiering this week as I talk about Dragon Con.

If you have an interesting costume or just plain wish to chat,  be sure to look for a girl dressed as Twilight Sparkle with the camera man.

If you want to be a part of the Pinkie Pie Flash mob between the Sheraton and the Hilton,  that is where you will be sure to put your lovely face on camera.

 Note that the Pinkie Pie Party will be on Friday August 30th at 5:00 PM in the Marriott on the 10th floor or so planned.  Please stay tuned...

Hey con-goers,

Last year I was able to get a handful of folks interested in running during D*C – I would typically run a few miles up the road to Piedmont Park in midtown and back. Pretty straightforward:  meet up in the morning at the Marriott Starbucks and head out on the less-hectic con days, i.e., not Saturday or Sunday.  Just seeing who’s interested this year.

On another note, since Dragon*Con is known for big charitable efforts and world records, I wanted to alert fellow runners across the U.S. (or even those who’d just like to be spectators) to the first-ever transcontinental relay run to benefit the One Fund Boston, which helps victims of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15.   Started on July 7 in Venice Beach, CA and ending at the marathon finish line in Boston on June 30, the run consists of 319 different legs through 14 states – in most stages one person carries a special GPS-enabled baton, but there are several legs designed for large groups of runners, including Oklahoma City (11 am 6/18), St. Louis (6 am 6/22), Indianapolis (10:50 pm 6/23), Columbus, OH (6 am 6/25), Pittsburgh (3:05 pm 6/26), and New York City (7:45 pm 6/29).  More info at onerunforboston.org.

Thanks, and see you in Atlanta!

Hello everyone! To all the fans of Defiance we have started a Defiance Dragon*Con Group. It's a group for all the Defiance costumers, and fans out there! A place to talk, lend support, get help, and share our creations. We have albums setup with sections on: 1) Reference photos for costumers filed by the races. 2) You can also make your own album on the progress of your costumes. 3. You will also be able to upload any photos you take from Dragon*Con 2013!

We hope to see you there!

Now that the dust has settled a bit, this is a follow-up to [livejournal.com profile] zarathud's post on running at Dragon*Con.  I'm curious to see how many people braved the heat, humidity, and hills of Atlanta over the weekend, and who might like to get together to run next year.  While I wasn't able to meet up with anyone through LJ this time around, on Monday morning I asked someone who was heading out for a run if I could join him, so I did get at least one D*Con running partner.  

I would head up to Piedmont Park and around midtown Atlanta, doing 4 to 6 miles a day on Thursday, Friday, and Monday (Saturday and Sunday were just too busy, although I know a group of folks runs the parade route before thing kick off).  Doing a half marathon's worth of running over the long weekend is pretty straightforward; it might be a good goal for an informal Dragon*Con running club, maybe even something we could use to benefit a D*C charity.  Thoughts?

My boyfriend and I are going to Dragoncon this year. Apparently there's a really important UFC fight going on Saturday night that weekend that my boyfriend wants to watch while in Atlanta.

Who out there knows the Atlanta area and can tell me where there is a decent sports bar near Dragoncon to watch the fights?

This is pretty unfortunate timing, but the escalator in the Peachtree Center MARTA Station won't be working during the con. I'd recommend using the one on the other side of the street near the Starbucks. Also, the 110 bus runs up and down Peachtree St. Though it has been rerouted by detour (as I discovered by being stranded one night). It now runs behind the Hyatt and then connects to Peachtree.
This is copied from MARTA's Facebook page:


On Wednesday, August 8, MARTA will close the two long escalators that serve the Food Court entrance via the Northeast concourse at our Peachtree Center st

Both long escalators will be taken out of service at the same time (August 8). The complete replacement and repair is expected to be finished by mid-October.

In the meantime, MARTA customers may use the Northwest exit (Post Office/AmericasMart) or elevator and exit the Peachtree Station on the sidewalk across the street from the Food Court.

Or, they may exit with the Southeast escalators or elevator and walk north on the same side of the street as the Food Court.

Signage and flyers are already in place.

We apologize for this inconvenience during this repair work.

Boosting the signal from the dragonconrooms comm, this is abt a hotel changing hands!

"IMPORTANT: The Holiday Inn Express Buckhead has changed ownership and is now the Quality Suites Buckhead Village. All reservations made under former management will be honored. Unfortunately, during the conversion there was a problem with their reservations system. Because of this attendees will need to e-mail John Welch at johnw@wxhotels.com with their original reservation confirmation number and the dates of their arrival and departure to reconfirm their stay. Please take action immediately, as the hotel will open up available reservations in 7 - 10 days."

This was on the D*C FB page.

Here is the first of 5 video walkthrough videos I took recently of the hotels.  Please check it out and let me know what I did right/wrong.  The Hyatt did not turn out as good as the other 4.  I will link them all when they are done.

When do we usually see the schedule for this posted?  I am waffling back and forth between a floorsleeping arrangement and just getting a room at the Airport Hilton for that one night.  Will it be running on Thursday?  My rough draft of a plan is get to hotel, dump metric butt-ton of stuff off, get ASAP down to grab badge, come back to room, die until early Friday morning, back to my REAL hotel, obtain room.  I am worried about my back going flobotsky from flooring it before things are really even well underway.

Yes, I know how far away the Airport Hilton is.  Yes, I know to use MARTA in a pinch.  No, I really have no other way to do this due to financial constraints.  It's just the one night.  Passkey can eat old moldy Navy bootcamp socks.
