OMG love that movie!...
So what will the theme of the 2012 ball be? Or did someone already say that and I missed it?


Kisses, Hugs and Spanx,
Luci

LOLs - we are Ageless and possessed of timeless wisdom.

The masquerade theme is going to be a sort of ghostly New Orleans theme. Much scope for the imagination. Very Happy

No fair calling Bowie, Stella. That way lies badly filmed girl fights. From what I remember, he was quite willing to dance with everyone... You can only call "first". Wink

And I'm certainly not showing my age. I'm hinting at my experience.

Bowie as Jared in that movie shaped my preferences in ways I cannot comment on, but I believe that there are incriminating pictures that someone has posted on facebook.

No. I will not provide links.

ANd the makeup! Don't forget the bright blue eyeshadow slathered on like... well, I can't think of what like.

It makes goth look positively restrained, though. Smile

Those shades of blue weren't scary looking as the goth stuff.

I don't know... I was a theatre student - Goth is less scary to me.

Of course at the time, the blue eyeshadow and big hair were all the rage, which is scary in its own way.

The con itself has a theme in that there's kind of a plan, but there's not really a theme like there can be with cons with cosplay devotees. If there is a theme, it's more like "Come and play, have fun!" than anything else.

I tend to think of it as a flavor, more than a theme. The specific events have themes, but the convention itself is kind of like a continuous party more than a thematic event.

Next year's theme is "Summer Camp" cuz NOLA i really is an adult vacation destination. But its loose as in its just something to define the con.

The Masquerade for next year is ECHOES OF NEW ORLEANS and is a Ghost Character themed event... There will be more on it as we figure it all out.

This sounds amazing, dressing up will be so much fun! Joey W. Hills' Vampire Queen series got me hooked and I found out through her fan forum about AAD that means I have to attend! Or at least that's what I'm going to tell my b/f!!!

So... out of curiosity, are people who can't attend AAD 2011 (Philly) interested in seeing photos from the convention?

I have a camera, and I'm not afraid to use it. Wink
