WE NEED TO JUMP ON THIS! DOCTOR WHO NOT GOING TO SDCC THIS YEAR. [Jun. 27th, 2014|11:49 am]

Apparently, according to the nerdist, Moffat and Company will not be able to come to SDCC this year cos their schedule won't allow it until after early august.  THEY COULD COME TO DRAGONCON INSTEAD IF SOME SAVVY PERSON COULD GET IN TOUCH WITH THEM AT THE BEEB AND SAY, "That's okay, we actually have a huge SCIENCE FICTION convention that tops out between 75k and 80k people every year that happens at the END of August and the beginning of September.  And ya know, we treat our Doctors right.  Just ask Peter or Sylvester how well we treat them?  (DO NOT ASK ABOUT SYLVESTER'S FOOT.)"

Brit-Track folks?  I have to think this is a golden opportunity to get us some NuWho representation for DragonCon.  Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to make this happen!

TimeGate 2014, the DW (and more) convention, Atlanta, GA, USA, May 23rd-25th [Apr. 28th, 2014|02:34 pm]
Dragon*Con British Science Fiction and Media

acciochocolate
TimeGate 2014, the Doctor Who (& more) annual convention, is taking place in Atlanta, GA, USA, over the Memorial Day weekend, May 23rd-25th. Please check out the site for a list of guests, events, hotel and travel info, memberships, and more, here: http://timegatecon.org/

If you find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed by the throngs of people at the big cons like SDCC and Dragoncon, please consider attending TimeGate. :) However, just because the con is smallish, doesn't mean that there isn't plenty to do! We have seven tracks of programming! Also: major events, with the con's guests, in the Main Ballroom, several rooms for gaming, a wonderful consuite, photo opps and autographs with the guests, an even larger dealers' room this year, fan tables, performances (musical and theatrical), a charity cabaret, a masquerade, and more.

One of the tracks, or portals as we call them at TimeGate, is the Wardrobe Portal, which is mostly about costuming/cosplaying in the Who'verse. The DW track is the Gallifrey Portal, which has the major guest events in the Main Ballroom, in addition to the fan panels in the track room.

Memberships are only $45 through May 1st; afterwards, they are $60 at the door. Check the website for member registration:

See everyone at TimeGate 2014!

Question [Jan. 30th, 2013|12:06 pm]
Dragon*Con British Science Fiction and Media

What would y'all like to see from our social media?  Recently we have been expanding into new social sites, such as Google+ and Tumblr (coming soon), and trying to reinvigorate our Twitter account, and I wondered:  how do you prefer to get news and updates and interact with the group?  Do we need a Twitter?  What about LiveJournal and MySpace? What social sites would you like to see a Brittrack presence on?  Let us know!
I know we have posted this in several areas, but I wanted to reach the maximum number of people.  Thanks for your patience!

See us off for the Wedding on D*C Friday at 2:45 at the Sheraton! [Aug. 21st, 2012|10:48 pm]

Since DragonCon elected to not let us have our Gallifreyan Wedding at the con itself, we'll be having the wedding at the Earl Smith Strand Theater in Marietta. And given the limitations of the food, we couldn't invite the entire con to come with us. However!

On DragonCon Friday, right around 2:30 PM, we're going to be right around the lobby and main entrance area of the Sheraton where we'll be picked up by a Trolley Bus at 3 PM. The wedding attendants and ourselves will be in Gallifreyan Robes. The attendants will be in various colored robes with the big collars, while the bride and groom will be in Red and Gold wedding ceremony robes with the big collars. The father of the bride will be in Master Black, while the mother of the groom will be in White Guardian White. (Hell with you, Davies. It's the White Guardian. Not his mom!) If you'd like to come and take pictures before we go, you're entirely welcome.

We'll also be walking alongside the lot of you in the parade with two other lords holding a JUST MARRIED banner in Simple Gallifreyan, Also in Red and gold.

We'll take part in the Prydonian shoot afterward, but you'll see us in and about the con. Say hi to us an stuff! I may even have a surprise for all of you at Buffy Horror again if I can manage it. Though we won't be there. We'll be getting married on Friday evening when that's happening. We'll also be entering our stuff in the Masquerade on Sunday night as well! Maybe we'll even attend the Time Traveller's Ball if we don't have a conflict.

We'll be taping the whole thing. Getting many pics. There will be websites where you can find the whole thing later. We're submitting the whole thing to sites like io9, The Chive, Offbeat Bride, DenOfGeek. Putting videos on YouTube. All that good stuff.

We'll see you soon! And happy DragonCon!

Cosplayers! [Jul. 29th, 2012|11:55 pm]
Dragon*Con British Science Fiction and Media

vincegrotesque
Now that the con is about a month away, we're in the crunch! Well, those of us who are making or putting together costumes are anyway. So, who is cosplaying for the Brit track this year? What characters/groups?

Brit-track related costumes I should be doing during the con are: Fantasy Man and Daddy Push from Luxury Comedy, and Tim Minchin for a celeb-cosplay group. Otherwise I'm planning for some hobbit related costume (still up in the air).
