:lol:

Talking of corsets and saucy ladies - I'm going to be dressing up more this time (for our Temple of the Lady mainly) and will be 'doing a Sadie' at some stage (I got a parrot-headed umbrella special for it). Do we know a Dotsie with a big handbag...? :whistle:

I can just see us 'enforcing' in the gambling den :P

I've also got a Mrs. Earwig style witch outfit and of course Ysabell (when she was still a chocoholic) - I'll probably leave Jackrum behind this time as it's hot wearing the jacket/cardi for that.

The vampire will re-appear at some point over the weekend but I have a new costume for the Gala Dinner bearing in mind that this convention is set at the time of the first books so later characters won't be appropriate.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Death will make an appearance somewhere :P Since this con is set at the time of the first books I can be nasty :twisted:

The hedgehog race is a traditional part of convention and needs lots of cardboard, I don't know why maybe they eat it :roll: *

Megan cannot work the weekend of convention because she is on holiday





* Actually the hedgehog race needs cardboard to build things but nobody knows what yet as it is different each convention

I'm toying with the idea of not going it's going to be a bit tight for time, and it would be the 1st DWCon I have missed in the UK. Image Image
