Tomorrow is May 1st, which means only 28 days 'til MediaWest*Con..... I have seen the preliminary schedule for Fan Panels --- No mention of Highlander at all!!! yet somehow a 70's-'80's British Cop show that had (as far as I can tell) NO  widespread U.S. distribution (ala DW, or more recently SHERLOCK on PBS) acquired and still has enough fannish interest to merit at LEAST two panels per day in the scheduling.... sigh. 

I'm running out of time if I want to hold a Highlander 30th Anniversary event, either a Panel or in the 'Party Suite' -- and I have seen NO indications of any significant Highlander-fan presence (I lost contact with the HL fandoms back in early 2000's when I went 'dark' due to personal problems -- while I did recognize some names from the Membership List, most of them are from my SW Role-Playing group).
I can still have a small Room Party, I suppose ---  I'd had some grandiose notion of a Trivia Game and Door prizes - HAH! 

Apparently the SW Role Play group is still going...

And those blasted RGB-Bronies will be there. Ugh!

I have a feeling Daughter is going to bored out of her skull by Saturday. 

I need to seriously work on my cosplay:   Fem Victorian/Steampunk Ryou Bakura, amateur Egyptologist.

And it's raining. Bleeehhh.

Well, I received a reply from MediaWest*Con, and a membership form.  I'd already pretty much decided that I wanted to take either Daughter or Elder Sister with me (company for the road) ... don't get me wrong, I DO love my sister, but I don't really enjoy having her as a roommate at conventions - she is sort of high maintenance with all her health problems  -- so is Daughter to an extent, but she doesn't talk about them constantly...  plus with her job, Daughter has INCOME and can pay part of her own way....

So Daughter gets the prize.   In a way, this will be her SECOND trip to MediaWest (I was 5 months pregnant the first time); I told her she should really experience it from the outside at least once.  She is already planning COSPLAY. 

Now I just have to crunch the finances a little, having ignored until earlier this week the fact that February tends to have EXPENSES  -- Jethro needs his shots,  gotta pay Amerifile to do the taxes, MAY have to PAY taxes....

Would be nice if I knew for sure that some of my years-ago fandom friends were attending!

OKay, earlier today I left a comment on a friend's LJ, basically wishing her a good time at the fan convention she just arrived at, and asking her to say hello to 'the gang' for me, especially Peter if he was attending. A little bit of background: several years ago I was fairly active fannishly in several different fandoms, most notably Real Ghostbusters, Highlander:TS, and the StarWars LARP group at Media*WestCON. People who rarely saw each other except for at MWC but who communicated via smail-mail, letterzines, YAHOO-Lists/Groups, forming unlikely but enduring friendships, yadda yadda yadda....

only if you're really interested in some weird image association )


(Sometimes, it gets VERY Strange inside my mind)
