Introduction and looking for roomshare [Aug. 29th, 2009|10:53 am]


Good morning,

     First an introduction.  I attended the Bad Faerie Ball last year in Philly and it was fun if not disappointing(I dearly wanted to see Omnia, enough so that I'm learning some Dutch and going to the festival they do in Europe, that and I made the mistake of bring someone that I found out later was an Anti-Faerie Atheist).  I'm 33 years old,  I am a student of Faerie(as much as it can be studied), a neo-dandy, a rake, a malcontent and somewhat of a cad* and used to help run a convention myself, SalonCon(pity, though unfashionable, is always gratefully recieved).

I'm making another run at Faeriecon this year because I can't pass up the chance to see Faun and maybe get a book signed by Brian Froud and Charles De Lint.

And now to the roomshare part.  I'm coming from New Jersey so driving home isn't really an option.  Anyone have any floor space?  I don't smoke(asthma, I'm afraid), no drugs(although I am known for the quality of obscure alcoholic beverages I make, such as bumboo and Subgenius style gin and tonics) and I'm not looking to skulk the night fantastic  hunting for girl flesh**,  I just need somewhere to pass out after what will hopefully be an awesome Bad Faerie Ball.

*the best way to sum up would the a quote from Lord Summerisle.  "A heathen, conceivably, but not, I hope, an unenlightened one."

** Unless by "skulk the night fantastic hunting for girl flesh" you mean see Faun, get a CD signed by Faun, get a book signed by Froud or De Lint and maybe finding a workshop and getting nice presents for the family, in that case I'm totally "skulking the night fantastic hunting for girl flesh".  Black cape and top hat and everything.

Wings for Sale :) [Jun. 8th, 2009|10:58 am]
[Current Mood |draineddrained]

No sure if I am able to go to this this year or not. I have a pair of irridescent fairly realistic looking used faery wings if anyone is interested let me know. :) I wore them to the bad faery ball 2 years ago. There are one or two tears that were taped up but other than that they are in decent condition. They have a piece that goes goes down the back and I think also ribbons that tie down the front to keep it secure. :)

Roommates Needed + Ride Needed [Jun. 7th, 2009|06:18 pm]

[Current Location |My bedroom]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]
[Current Music |"Rose" by Woodland]

Howdy folks!

Okay, so I posted up two things on the FaerieCon site - one being a roomie request and another a ride request. I'm putting them up here as well in hopes of finding people.

I'm coming to FaerieCon 2009 from Philadelphia, PA and I don't have a car and I can't drive either. What's the best way to get to FaerieCon? I'm guessing to get to Baltimore and go from there but I can't seem to sort out the logistics. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

If somebody is driving from Philly, I also wouldn't mind carpooling - I'd chip in for gas and tolls. My friend might want to join in too. We'd get together before so you'd have only one location to pick us up from.

My friend and I are looking for roomies for our room at Faerie Con. She's 21 and I'm 20 and we're looking for ideally two more people to room with us. Preferably female between the ages of 18-25 but we're willing to be flexible. We'd just like to meet more folk with common interests and lowering room costs in this economic climate would be Godsend (especially as we're both still in college).

Here's the deal:
* Check-in on Friday, Check-out on Sunday
* Rates for entire stay are:
$120 per person if just us two
$80 per person if three total
$60 per person if four total
* No smoking, no drugs, no hookups, no bringing in strangers.. keep it drama-free! ^_^

Let me know if you're interested, thanks! You can reply here, LJ message me, anything goes. I don't bite.

Some info on the Baltimore/Huntsville Marriott [Mar. 5th, 2009|01:37 am]


Some of my LJ friends were giving me info about the hotel FaerieCon is moved to in Huntsville, MD:

> I remember it being a nice place. Has a swimming pool. Plenty of rooms
> for panels, big space for guest Q&As, dances, etc.
> The down side? It's in the middle of nowhere. You can't just walk to
> places to eat, grocery stores, etc. I remember being limited to whatever
> food was on sale there inside the hotel. (If you have a car with you,
> that would open your options, but this is not in the city.) Unless the
> area has changed since I was there, which was more than 10 years ago.

A friend who lives nearby replied to this:

"It's changed! It's fairly developed and there's a mall nearby, but I don't think I'd call it all pedestrian friendly or quite 'walking distance'. Sometimes just hiding in a hotel all weekend and pretending the outside world doesn't exist is a good thing."

That last I've found to be true. It works very well for Arisia, a sci fi convention my SO helps organize, that's held in Boston (Cambridge, actually) every January, always at a hotel. Being able to wander about outside your room, and have EVERYTHING right there, is very convenient. Not having to wander the streets from hotel to convention center to balls in fae garb AND winter coats in November will be nice also. :-)

It IS a bit of a downer for those who cannot afford to be spending extra money on hotel priced food. Best to plan for that and pack "picnic" type food for the hotel room. We should find out if they have small fridges in the hotel rooms, besides the usual coffee-making equipment. Some do. I suspect most of us can survive a bit of "camping out/roughing it" for two or three days. Granola protein bars, anyone? ;-P

Or maybe they can arrange for hotel-to-mall transport. At Arisia they have buses taking people back and forth from the hotel to the nearest Train station, and drop off points en route where there are other eating options. But it's taken Arisia many years to work out those kinks, and no matter what one plans for, there are ALWAYS going to be contingencies. You just can't please all the people all the time, even in an ideal world.

FaerieCon/Baltimore/November [Mar. 4th, 2009|03:47 pm]


So I just booked my FaerieCon rate ($99) hotel room for this coming November. The Marriott reservations person was helpful and friendly, and we had a nice chat about what FaerieCon is all about. (So far she's only seen Trekkers.) They will not bill my credit card until we arrive, and we can cancel up until 6 pm on the day of arrival! It can't get any easier or more user friendly than that!

and I am one those Philadelphians with a car that will probably drive down, but they really needed to think about the phrasing of the flyer.

Anyway, while Emilio and Kelly are aware of this community, I don't think they really check it very often.

Faerie Worlds Chatroom is a lot more likely to be read. Now my advice is to be polite. They're really nice people, and probably didn't think it through how it would sound to Philly natives (these are the same people who thought the Convention Center was a good location; before getting there). Being mean and rude would actually reinforce Baltimore as a "safer place".

BTW I'll be at Wicked Faire this weekend, anyone else?
