Well, I thought one of the older ones, I'm not tall and I'm plump.

lol - you'll look thin next to me :wink: We may have to toss for Nanny then unless one of us smokes a pipe... :twisted: OR one of us could be Desiderata Hollow the Fairy Godmother...? :twisted:

Sjoerd are you going to do a dry run as Death or are you waiting for the 2012 con in Birmingham? :P

I could do Desiderata I expect - or perhaps Agnes then... I believe I'm the youngest after all :P

I want to get some practice before the 2012 con :wink:

So I'm going as Death :wink:

Hmmm - will have to think about that... :lol:

Be aware that if you get too many of one character at a convention, Terry might make you prove who is the best.

At one convention, so many people turned up as Rincewind that he made them have a race. :twisted:

When do you start dressing up for these Conventions? When you arrive or ready dressed on arrival?

I don't think I'm going to travel on the train like Death :wink:

So I think I'm going to dress up after I've arrived :P

I could just imagine flying to Rotterdam on a plane dressed as a witch! There'd be lots of flying comments and lack of broom etc!

There's all sorts of health and safety stuff too - have to check in any heavy duty weapons (scythes and possibly broomsticks :wink: ) for just wandering around the hotel and convention rooms. At Birmingham they let you have them back for the Maskerade but I'm not sure whether they're having one for this? :?

However - I'm not going in for the Maskerade even if they do have one, so I'll only dress up inside and for the posh din-dins :D
