Hi everyone:
I will be at Dragon Con this year as a regular guest working on my blogs by shooting interviews of regular attendees and of main events.   I am an amateur and I just started doing my blog work last year at Dragon con and I had loads and loads of fun.

What I would like to do is to show you some links of the stuff that I am working on.  If you would like to meet up at the convention to do some blog work with me, please be sure to send me a PM and we will meet.








Please be sure to check these out and subscribe to my youtube channel

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:

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!

I want to know how many of you are going to D*C and how many of you are cosplaying this year and what you’re going as. You don’t have to reply to this, you can send me a private message or even an e-mail to HeatherMairiPhotography@gmail.com.

Part A: For the ladies:
I’ve been to Dragon*Con the last few years, this will be my.. 4th year I think. May be 3rd. I don’t remember. ANYWAY! I love taking pictures of cosplayers, but there’s always so many, I miss a lot. Especially when I do panels, but I don’t know if I want to do any this year, unless something really catches my attention.

However, this year, I want to shift my focus from taking pictures of just really great costumes, to having an actual theme and I want it to be Female Cosplayers of Dragon*Con. I’m sick of all of us getting shit for being female and dressing up as amazing characters and being grilled over and over again about how much we know about said character and being forced to prove ourselves over and over again because of our love.

Being a fan of video games or comics/graphic novels/manga, anime etc. does not mean we have to know every little detail of every little universe. Unfortunately, there are many who dont’ agree with this.

I'm looking for a multitude of costumes and fandoms, but I really want to aim for video game/comic book cosplays. This is the one area, where as a female, we are given the most attitude.

Even if you're not cosplaying as a comic or video game character and you want to be involved, please, get in touch with me. I will not reject anybody! (kids are also welcome)

Which brings me to

Part B of the Objective: For the guys

I would also like to find some guys who will be attending DC13 who don’t give a shit if a female knows every single detail of a character, game, comic, movie etc. etc. but loves the fact that they (the females) are willing to show their love for something, regardless of the ridicule and crap dealt out by those that are too insecure with themselves to open to the idea that females can be gamers - whether table top, card, RPG, first person, or comic nerds.

If anyone is willing to help out with this, please send an email to HeatherMairiPhotography@gmail.com for more details or any questions you might have. I’m still planning this out, but there’s quite a few things I would like to do with this project.

Heather Ryan

Just a quick note: I've been getting a lot of responses for this project (yay!), so I have to ask if you want to be a part of this, please don't just post in a comment to someone else. I might miss it, and I don't want to do that.

Also, if you've noticed I haven't checked in with someone yet, please keep chatter to a minimum. Once I've checked in with a person, chat to your hearts content. I just want to make sure everyone who says they want to be a part of this, gets checked in.

Howdy, Dragon*Con-goers! I know Thursday feels so far away, but it'll be here before we know it. Best of luck with your final preperations. 

Anyway, I'm a volunteer for the Fandom Oral History Project. What's the Fandom Oral History project, you might ask? Well:
Two long-time fans, Morgan Dawn and Franzi have launched the Media Fandom Oral History project. They are looking for fans who’d like to share their unique experience of fandom, the things that drew them to fandom, the friendships they’ve made, the stories, vids, or art that they’ve created and how fandom has impacted their lives. In doing so, our stories will be told using our voices and will be available for future generations to listen to.  The audio interviews will be done by phone or via Skype and will be archived at the Fanzine Archives located in Iowa and may eventually be available online via the Organization for Transformative Works (a fan run non-profit). Excerpts may also be included in other print and online projects in the years to come. Contact us at oralhistoryfandom@gmail.com if you’d like to be added to the interview list. Additional information is also here: http://tinyurl.com/MediaOralHistory
Obviously, Dragon*Con is not only host to lots of fans with interesting stories, but is often the site of interesting stories itself. This is a great opportunity to commit your favorite fannish memories to history.

See you at con!

I just wanted to come on here and thank Dragon*Con and this community for introducing me to Dr.Who. To be honest i had never really watched or knew anyone that watched it before going to Con in 2007. Even after that it took 5 years of seeing it have a huge presence at Con and reading about people posting about it on here. I decided to give it a try and am absolutly in love with it. Im only into the second season or the re-boot series but i have loved every episode. So thanks again, and it just goes to show how much Con can open your eyes to new and old shows. Just as an afterthought, does Con ever get anyone from Dr.Who as guests?

I wanted to make a quick shout out to the wonderful Klingons who came to my aid when there was a quick "evac" (turns out later a mistake by an over zealous temp cop) of a portion of the Marriott lobby Saturday.  And this isn't the first time these helpful souls came to the rescue of this damsel.
Last year, in the food court, I was about to be thwarted in my attempt to go to Willy's for a much anticipated burrito.   It seems the designers made a total f*ck up when they added a two step up with NO way around to that eatery alone.  (which btw BOO HISS to Willey's for being so short sighted).  As I was about to turn away, four handsome Kronosians came up from behind and like I was Cleopatra that lifted my chair and all to the counter and returned when I left.  
Saturday, as I was being jostled about in the slightly panicked crowd, the only direction to my hotel up hill, two men in full Klingon garb, took over my transport, shouting (in a good natured way, well ya know) for the way to be clear.  I thought they'd just take me to level ground, but instead got me all the way to the Hilton elevators.  They turned a nerve racking situation into a laughter filled adventure.  I didn't get their real names.  (And my Klingon is a bit rusty), but to my heroes I send a hug and a kiss.  You are a credit to your race.

Here is a list of all the academic panels at Dragon*Con that have been organized by the Comics and Popular Arts Conference group. This year's programming would not have been possible without my co-organizer, R. Scott Nokes, our Programming Chair, Damien Williams, and our Programming Committee: Dennis LoRusso, Stephanie Noell, Vickie Willis, and Robin Zebrowski. And of course, all of the fantastic track heads.

Once again prob my favorite posting of the year in here: taking the annual poll to see where everyone is coming in from...

NOTE: As usual for the sake of the poll, Metro Atlanta is defined as anywhere within 50 miles of the downtown core. I know its reached out way past that, but it still makes a nice round number. ;)

Hi! Is anyone else on this comm going to be staffing one of the fantables at the Hyatt or the Sheraton? The Harry Potter fancon group I'm with, Ascendio, is set to be at the Sheraton (although we'd love to switch to the Hyatt (ETA on 8/29 - we just got moved!) as all the YA track programming is there or at the Marriott) and were wondering what other groups' plans are for their tables, and if anyone knows if there's wifi available (even at a fee) in the Hyatt space.

When you're over picking up your badge, or heading to programming, please stop by and say hi! We'll be the table with the owl banner on it (at least on Fri-Sunday; the package may not arrive til Thursday).

We can't wait!

As some of you know, one of our dancers (Noel Howell) from 2009 passed away. We are doing something special at Dragon*Con 2011 in her memory and I wanted to see if anyone would be interested in helping out. 

This is a top secret mission and there's only room for a a few dozen special people. If you did not perform with us, this mission may not be for you. We seek only those who still vaguely remember the dance, who will gladly refresh their memory to pick it back up, and who will not be afraid to be a little silly in a public space. =) If you would be the right candidate for such an event, email me LaurenLeasure(at)gmail(dot)com

I will quickly respond with details on how to be a part of this special event. =)

Lots of Love,
