Can't wait for the Colonial Fleet party. I think it just might be epic.
9th-Aug-2009 08:35 pm (UTC)
Hmmm.....Colonials and Browncoats in the same general area. I hear a hole in the space time continuum gearing up. :-D
9th-Aug-2009 09:23 pm (UTC)
It's going to be crazy awesome, yes :-D
10th-Aug-2009 12:29 am (UTC)
It was last year. I hit both parties up and it was epic

The Pirate Party (dconpirateparty) will be on Sunday at 10:00PM in the Hyatt International North and South Ballrooms. I suggest you arrive early (9-930ish) as we've had to open the doors early due to over crowding the halls every year we've had it.

We have live entertainment (3 acts), A costume contest (for Pirates AND Steampunk air pirates), period dancing, free raffle and giveaways.

Attire: Your piratical best! All pirate costumes are encouraged (sea pirates, land pirates/gypsies, air pirates/steampunk) but not required for entry.

Over $1000.00 in prizes to be given away!
9th-Aug-2009 10:44 pm (UTC) - Farscape!
Where's the farscape party?

*ducks*
9th-Aug-2009 10:51 pm (UTC) - Re: Farscape!
I'd so be there, if they had one.
10th-Aug-2009 04:09 am (UTC) - Re: Farscape!
If someone's doing one, tell me about it so I can list it! ;)

The True Blood group is thinking of a time and day. Don't worry! We are discussing it now! Will keep you posted!
11th-Aug-2009 07:41 pm (UTC)
I will be adding these to the master list and posting announcements soon, but two of my own gatherings/photoshoot have been finalized.

  • The Disney photoshoot will take place Friday at 2:00 pm, Peachtree Center Courtyard (the Sheraton pool atrium is pretty but not practical, I've since realized, so I went with the Peachtree Center courtyard instead). sparr0 took a picture of it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sparr0/3787276793/in/set-72157621943375276/

    This is located above the food court one passes through en route to the Marriott from the Hyatt (or vice versa) when using the skywalk, there are stairs and escalators leading up there from the aforementioned food court.
  • The '80s cartoon characters/rock stars/pop stars/movie characters (think He-Man, She-Ra, Thundercats, Rainbow Brite, the D&D Saturday morning cartoon, Jem and the Holograms, Voltron, that kind of stuff) will be Sunday at 1:30 pm, Marriott 10th floor


Still working on the Trek and Potter ones, will let you know when I've finalized them.
11th-Aug-2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
If you want, you can simply "80s cartoon characters/rock stars/pop stars/movie characters" to '80s cartoons and such, as I have done on the master list. Still gets the point across, and frankly I'm expecting mostly '80s carton character cosplays anyway (though rock/pop stars and characters from live-action sources are also welcome)
12th-Aug-2009 03:43 pm (UTC)
Update: the Star Trek photoshoot will be at the Marriott Pulse bar, right after the Parade on Saturday
