I'm going to Lifeway College in Febuary, but i may be able to get a ride to aucklageddon with the lifeway people at the stall, no promises.

but let's establish who's going to be who. Sounds like you're keen to be Jaine, and I'd be keen to be Mal, so that's settled. anyone else wanna be a serenity character?

There is a short comic run set between the tv show and the movie. Much as there is a continuation of both buffy and angel in comic book form.

I have three comics. It's like a mini-episode. I wonder if there were more?

I also have Fray, which is a future continued on well past buffy's lifetime.

One of the guests at one of the ChCh Geddon was asked about TV writers being asked to write comics. He said the can not do it because the timing/story flow is too different so he hates it. With one exception, Josh Weddon. And he said that Josh can cross genres and formats probably because he is the ultimate fan boy.

Tin Tango, I am going to do Jayne some day. So I have a few little thoughts on the costume.

Also Emma got us to do skits, to try to make her laugh. I did a Jayne Skit, did not get her to laugh, but did get her to swap shawnee for vera. Not the first time that night I had a laugh at shawnee's expense. But neither of us (me and emma) broke character though.

Anyway I am also trying to get someone I know to make me and Rocky Jayne hats!

@Templar; you look physically way more like the Doctor. Just get some blue contacts and voila.

I've thought about doing Kaylee or Inara (I love Kaylee, but I look more like Inara... gah), but I'm so booked for next year D:

Unless it was for the Geddon Ball?

Woah. Bit of a necro here.... oh well, I guess.
I look at the start of this thread. I doubleposted gonk and I didn't even use capital I's.

I am thinking about holding a Firefly marathon soon. Maybe. If I'm allowed.

I really want to do Kaylee's ruffle dress. Thats like, my number one dream cosplay. And I'm currently trying to track down some clothes to cosplay Kaylee in ther regular outfit. Harder than it sounds.

^ I saw that on your sig a while ago, I did fangirl a little. Kaylee's ball dress is the most hilarious thing ever, I don't have the cojones to do it (and uhh, not the skill either, but let's forget about that).

You could just do Kaylee in her greasemonkey suit?

Also, Firefly marathons are awesome. And it's great, because there's only like...13 episodes!

Saboteur, how about being Inara? That way, Kelly could be Mal.

oh man, a firefly marathon is such a good idea. We should totally organise something.

Cosplay.com has pictures of Kaylee and Inara sitting on a lawn together in there Shindig dresses. Is truly amazing and inspiring.

And yes Rocky, we need a firefly marathon. But I am thinking after Christchurch Geddon Please. I mean I will be busy with my comp outfit, SCA garb, holiday, Canterbury faire. If you can't hold it I will still hold it after we (start and) finish Revolutionary Girl Utena. I know you said you had two friends who would come, I possibly have a few, and Sakura probably will.

And Tin Tango, I remember a certain mean russian mafia boss that I think you could play?

Somebody should play Zoe too. Shes kick butt!

Is there anyone who wants to play reavers. You get to nom on any random person at geddon!

We've talked about it a few times, I'm sure he would love to do Captain Tightpants at some point.

I would probably die of fangirl if I saw someone doing Wash and Zoe. They are my favourite couple ever. Highlander is right, Zoe is so kick butt it's insane. Action Girl! And Wash is like... I can't even describe how awesome he is <3

@Rocky, good luck, I'm sure it will be awesome Very Happy Same goes to SilkSpectre!

Actually River Tam has to be the most fun. Act neurotic, speak cockney, run and hide, scream and then kick butt like nothing else, and she is the ultimate jewel in a Firefly group!

Actually that would be a cool plan. TinTango as wash (Or Jayne)? Me Jayne? (suppose I could do Simon Tam?) I'n not quite tall enough, but who is? Sounds like we have Le_Saboteur as Inara, Rocky as Kaylee, SS as Shindig Kaylee, TEMPLAR_1337 as Mal (or Simon Tam).

And I would like to suggest that we have Pseudonym as River Tam, and JVCA as Zoe!

And when? Auckgeddon 2010? Assuming Rocky and I can make it? ? Feel free to suggest any other.

Wash: "Everything looks good from here... (beat...playing with plastic dinosaurs over his console) Yes. Yes, this is a fertile land, and we will thrive."
(as Stegosaurus) "We will rule over all this land, and we will call it... 'This Land'."
(as T-Rex) "I think we should call it...your grave!"
(Stegosaurus) "Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"
(T-Rex) "Ha ha HA! Mine is an evil laugh...now die!"

ZoŽ Washburne: Cap'n'll have a plan... always does.
Kaylee Frye: That's good right?
ZoŽ Washburne: It's possible you're not recalling some of the cap'n's previous plans...

http://serenityverse.com/firefly/firefly-and-serenity-patches-now-available/

I know a guy in ChCh keen to do a browncoat if we do this in ChCh.

PS. The ChCh thread I started it was suggested that we learn the firefly/serenity theme song, and the Jaynestown song (Hero of Canton).

Yep. That was Awesome! Though they killed Wash off early... I was kinda waitin for him to say something hilarious.

Highlander you can do Jayne, then I'll do Shepherd Book or the bounty hunter Jubal Early ("... does that seem right to you?").

Though a Firefly marathon would be fantastic! So long as I get lotsa notice, and an idea on location, I may be able to make it.

His pistol is pretty unique. I reckon I can take one from my collection and paint it up to look like Mal's pistol. What I'm more concerned about is Jayne's weaponry. I mean, Jayne is the "Heavy" of sorts, so he usually carries something that would be laborious to build for cosplay.

TinTango, did you mention something about the weapons for this?

Yeah, I wanted to build Jaynes gun, the big one he uses when firefly is stuck in the trap, and he has to shoot that station in space.

I have just started a collection of big guns, so far I have "Sasha" from Team Fortress 2s Heavy Weapons Guy, and Dad made me the Soldier's Rocket Launcher for Xmas.

Vera is the coolest gun ever.

And, OMG, Firefly group would rawk <3


Me and my friends were meant to be going as Reavers to CHCHgeddon sometime, but they kinda bailed. Or maybe I bailed by joining lots of other groups >_> Iuno.

Also, I should fix up my River cosplay so that I can actually wear it in public.
