At the recently concluded Westercon, our Loscon 42 PB&J party had 125 people visit it (based on counting the stickers I handed out) and the New Orleans in 2018 party had 127 people. This is about 1/7th of the attendance of the convention.

In other news, I got my bike back from the shop and rode it home (2 and a half miles). So today, 2015-07-06, marks the start of my trying to work my leg muscles more by bicycling places.

So here's what I'm doing this weekend.

  • Thursday night, upstairs somewhere, Taco Party and aloha shirt photo project.
  • Friday 3:30 pm, Cascade 13, Our Guests of Honor Build a Spaceship.
  • Friday, 6:00 pm, Cascade 2, Cosplay: What is it, anyway?
  • Saturday, 12:00 pm, Cascade 5, Kaffee Klatsch.
  • Saturday, 3:00 pm, Cascade 2, Creating a Convention.
  • Sunday, 11:00 am, Cacade 13, Fans Behaving Badly.
  • Sunday, 12:00 pm, Cascade 13, Roving conventions: Selecting sites with your travel budget.
  • Sunday, 4:00 pm, Northwest Ballroom, Opening Ceremonies.

Regarding Thursday -- My plan for Wednesday afternoon and evening is to hit the ground running with my shopping, and get the meat started in the crockpots that night. Thursday, finish buying anything else that needs to be picked up especially anything we forgot the night before. I'm bringing just about all of my aloha shirts, which we'll use to decorate the room and also have them available for people to pose in, for the Aloha Shirt Photo Project.

Here are my planning and shopping notes so far... )

I'm going to Westercon this summer. (I'm their Fan Guest of Honor.)

I'd like to host a party during the convention. If I can pull this off, I'm going to need some help on the ground. At a minimum, some help rounding up the groceries would be needed. Better would be if you'll help me get things prepped to make the on-site cooking so much easier...

Does this sound like fun? I'm thinking we serve tacos, encourage people to wear aloha shirts, and take lots of pictures.

Tiffany (Neo_Serenity) and Arianna Unciano study the menus. Photos online. And most of them have captions. Help me fill in the gaps!

Losing my camera at Anime Expo really rocked me back... )

Oh, there's more going on than just my emotional state, of course. I've taken more photos since Anime Expo, but the photos in the queue have been on hold because of other non-photo, non-blog reasons. Family health issues and household management issues, and if I can be discarding and shredding old papers any of that comes before puttering around on my website.

I've just spent a few nights (in my copious free time) captioning some of the backlog. I think I've got to stop taking so many group photos -- they slow me down so much in the captioning phase!

I've been putting a few inconsequential updates on my facebook. Nothing major, but I wanted to repeat here the bigger items that I've mentioned there.

The Potluck Party Room at Costume College was a big success, so we'll do it again at PMX... )

Between now and PMX: I'll be at Tiki Oasis this weekend (just for fun), Anime Vegas (in a convention center), and a small anime convention at CSU Northridge. So PMX is the next opportunity to do any kind of hospitality beyond giving away granola bars and candy at our table.

For [livejournal.com profile] loscon, I'm hosting a Confirmation: Westercon 63 party. "Poofy dresses (especially white ones), shirt and tie, or school uniform" will be the dress code. We're toying with the idea of using a "Confirmitzvah" theme, stay tuned for that.

Some small convention news... )

I mentioned last month that I've purchased a new camera. I haven't found the "sports" setting yet, but I've started playing with the High ISO option for available light shots. You can see I've started posting the first crop of photos from the new camera.
