Discworld Convention 2012?
Hi all,

I wondered if anyone was planning on attending DWCon 2012? I only just discovered this event and have a very small amount of time left to book - discovering other attendees is difficult when there's so few communities surrounding it, but I have seen a fair few Discworld cosplayers in my time, so I know you guys are out here somewhere!

Consequently, any Discworld fans here who'd fancy going? Sir Terry Pratchett himself will be attending as the guest of honour, and it's one of my dreams to meet him as he is a huge inspiration to me - and sadly, time for doing this is starting to run a bit thin :C so the time for action is now!

http://www.dwcon.org/

Here is the website anyway, if anyone thinks they might be interested, please do check it out, as places are getting on for gone! Tickets are £48 for all 4 days up until the 1st July when they go up (but I expect they might be sold out by then).

I really hope this pays off, as I'd prefer not to go on my own, and it'd be great to meet some other literary fans here

Oh no...I was hoping membership wouldn't open for a while!

I was hoping to take my mother next year as a birthday present (she has always wanted to go) but I don't have any spare cash until at least August T_T. Bah.

I guess what I'm saying is that if there are still places left when I have the money to book, I will be attending. May have to wait until the 2014 one, sadly .

There are a few Disworld fans on here, so I hope you find someone who is definitely up for going!

UWAH. O__O I had no idea that this was happening! I really want to go....but....I'm hoping to get a holiday to Japan in around that time, and since we haven't picked dates yet, I can't really tie myself down to anything....agggh! What a predicament! T^T
So few spaces left, too.
*sigh*
Those of you who do go, I'm sure you'll have a spiffing time~!

Yeah, I'm in Australia next summer, coming back in August or September, so it's hard to plan around D:

I'm thinking of maybe paying the £25 support membership to reserve a place, that way it's less money to lose if it does fall through..

Noooooo argh I want to go D: But that's the summer I finish Uni so I have no idea where I'll be living/whether I'll have a job/how much money I will have. I wanted to finally make my Rincewind costume goddamn it.

Eeeeek just reserved a place for myself O: Just decided I really don't want to pass up this opportunity! I asked, and was told that it will probaby be a few months before it sells out completely. If anyone here makes a decision about going, the more the merrier : D

OHHHH

I.. I don't think I could afford this on top of Kita4 and anything else I go to...

But I'd love to.

I mean, I'd kill for a good excuse to cosplay Sgt Angua or Susan... or even Tiffany Aching (Though I think at 22 I may be just a smidge too old to pull her off now )

Noooooooooooooooooooo, why is reg open now? Why did i not know this existed?!... I have no money for this atm and no idea where I will be at that time next year due to graduation. Small gods, I'd love to go though. Maybe another time...
