The Countdown has begun. People are finishing costumes and getting ready for Dragon*Con!
As a public service for newcomers and regulars alike, I have prepared a short slideshow with some helpful tips for enjoying your Dragon*Con Experience. Viewable as a video or as individual images below the cut. (All photos used with permission)

**EDIT** You can also just view the Flickr Photoset if you don't want all the comment-y stuff.

Those were great.
20th-Aug-2010 06:38 pm (UTC)
Love these! Thank you!

THESE ARE GREAT. Also, the cake puppet is Cakey, The Cake from Outer Space! And he's my favorite celebrity I met at D*C last year. (Okay, sorry, Terry Gilliam might be reading this, and he was my favorite. <3)

If you've never watched Cakey's saga, I highly recommend it.
20th-Aug-2010 06:52 pm (UTC)
Did not meet Cakey....however, did meet Terry Gilliam last year, and he WAS my favorite. :)
20th-Aug-2010 06:45 pm (UTC)
love it!
20th-Aug-2010 06:56 pm (UTC) - Re: Infection
It so happens, btw, that the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is actually based in Atlanta. Coincidence, or just good planning in case of zombie apocalypse? ;p
20th-Aug-2010 07:00 pm (UTC)
Excellent!
20th-Aug-2010 07:15 pm (UTC)
I genuflect in your general direction.
20th-Aug-2010 07:19 pm (UTC)
This was Awesome and sooo true!!!! LOL!!! Thanks for sharing
20th-Aug-2010 07:51 pm (UTC)
Awesome presentation, nicely done! (Though sometimes when a badge isn't evident, the tricksy costumer has just built a hidden pocket or fold of fabric to obscure it, ready to be produced at a moment's notice! ;) )
20th-Aug-2010 07:56 pm (UTC)
As long as you have it, that's fine. I've just seen people broken up from their groups because they didn't have the badges on them. Like a couple years back when the Fire Marshall shut down access to the Hyatt COMPLETELY, so you couldn't get in without a Hyatt Hotel key or a badge. As I said, this is a public service, trying to help people be prepared.
20th-Aug-2010 07:58 pm (UTC)
And awesomely done too, sir. ;) I hope to encourage the use of pockets among costumers as well, hehe.

Awesome!
20th-Aug-2010 08:22 pm (UTC)
Yay! I'm on a poster!

(I seriously LOLed at this.)
20th-Aug-2010 08:45 pm (UTC)
Great job. Thanks!
20th-Aug-2010 09:03 pm (UTC)
*snickers*
20th-Aug-2010 09:08 pm (UTC)
Well done:)
20th-Aug-2010 09:31 pm (UTC) - 3 things:
1: HEEEE! I scared the clingy cat with how hard I was chortling. Excellently done!

2: I can't wait to tell Chip Malinowski that he's included in this slideshow! (He's Mr. Tumnus in "Cosplay Choices".)

3: If ever there was a post that would get the "snark" tag if it weren't so awesomely appropriate to other tags, this is the one.
20th-Aug-2010 10:31 pm (UTC) - Re: 3 things:
2: He totally nailed it! And he could re-use it this year and go as Grover from the PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS books/movie. I think he was also interviewed for the "CONventional Wisdom" documentary that they're showing this year.
23rd-Aug-2010 04:13 am (UTC) - Re: 3 things:
Yeah, he was! I was the Susan in the Narnia group that's with him in the documentary :) He's a really nice guy!
20th-Aug-2010 09:31 pm (UTC)
FANTASTIC!
20th-Aug-2010 10:18 pm (UTC) - Smokin!
Brilliant! Where's my Like button. Retweet? Want to share!!!
20th-Aug-2010 10:18 pm (UTC)
One word: EPIC

Only 13 days!
20th-Aug-2010 10:19 pm (UTC)
Under the vampires and photography, one of the girls in the picture is my friend Leesa!!! With the red hair! Awesome! :)
20th-Aug-2010 10:28 pm (UTC)
May I add one thing as a vendor (I don't have a picture for it, though)?

Please do NOT stop in the middle of an aisle to gape/stare/ogle a booth/person/costume. Kindly move to the side (if a booth and if at all possible), or go out to the lobby (if a person/costume). The bottle necks in there are a PITA, particularly if they're blocking paying customers.

Thank you! :-D
20th-Aug-2010 10:50 pm (UTC)
very good
21st-Aug-2010 12:36 am (UTC)
This is amazing and I love you forever!
21st-Aug-2010 02:00 am (UTC)
"That Smell" should be printed poster size and displayed at Every. Single. Con in the country. Dude. Soap, use it.

Brilliant!
21st-Aug-2010 02:17 am (UTC)
If you think Dragon*con is bad, try AWA.

Its like Pre-teen Sweat Bash of the year!

Though, unfortunitely, soap can't even mask some people's smell. I swear someone, in line at reg one year, smelled like mildewy water.

-_-.

Then and the times after that, I keep my body spray in a purse so that I can spritz in front of me every so often. I've had people thank me for spritzing around too -_-.

*SMELL GOODS FAIRIE SPRITZ* :B

yay for the ARTC represent by Phil in the parade photos shot, and woot for Tamara and her Leeloo costume!
21st-Aug-2010 02:43 pm (UTC)
mpceccato sent me a link to the poster with me in it and I thought the same thing: "yay ARTC representin'" and then "yay Tamara!" when I saw that one. Heh.

Nice posters, kernsville!

cheers,
Phil

LMAO
23rd-Aug-2010 05:30 pm (UTC)
Awesome, I love them!
24th-Aug-2010 04:21 pm (UTC)
Wow. How many people do I personally know in those pics?
25th-Aug-2010 11:03 am (UTC)
Almost as many as the amount you know who took all the photos? ;)
25th-Aug-2010 12:11 pm (UTC)
Yes, you and AmazingTito gave me lots of great pics to work with! Thanks again.
25th-Aug-2010 11:03 am (UTC)
Very cool! :D
