My goofy face talking about FaberryCon North and the Thursday walking tour.
As many of you are still waiting for the stars to align before you register for North, let me just take the opportunity to remind you about our con message board!
There are already people talking about needing roommates and coordinating travel together, so go get in on the conversation and help each other get to the con! It’s a great way to get to know the other folks attending beforehand, too.
Join the fun!
Registration for FaberryCon North is now open! Head to our website and check out updated information on North, full pricing details, and the registration form to attend! Hope to see you there! :-D
Hey, hey. Hi.
Registration opens tomorrow (March 1) for FaberryCon North, which means it’s the season to get people amped about the con.
So… if you’ve been to FaberryCon, I’d like to know if you could fill out a little survey for us so that we can tell people, in the words of our own attendees, what it’s like to be part of FaberryCon.
Because without you, there is no con. Only Zuul.
Wait. That’s… something else.
MY PEOPLE! Do the thing! Your voice could be the one that makes a difference for someone on the fence about attending. You could be the person who changes their life forever. <3
Hello everyone!!! Just had an AMAZING 2 hour video chat with jarrow from FaberryCon and he is totally on board with helping me/us make BrittanaCon happen. What would be better than having a sistercon to FaberryCon! ALL THE FANDOM LOVE! :-D
He was an amazing source of ideas and suggestions to help with logistics and planning and was super awesome about giving me information to learn from FaberryCon and how it grew into the awesome Con it is today.
I really think that we in the Brittana fandom can absolutely put together an amazing con where we can get together to celebrate Brittana but also come together as a community and just enjoy flailing amongst people who get it. :-)
There’s a lot to process to get things going and while it’s a daunting task, I am firmly committed to bringing the fandom a BrittanaCon 2014. Please share and reblog this Tumblr and get the word out to see if we can get a true idea of interest.
In the coming weeks, as things start to come together, we’ll definitely be putting out posts to discuss locations and dates and put feelers out for what people might be interested in doing/seeing/participating in at the Con and we’ll need graphics people and AV people and website people and just all the awesome people to hopefully try and build a BrittanaCon staff. :-)
But for right now, I’m going to let all the logistics stuff sit (because my brain is about to leak out of my ears LOL) and just be excited over this. I hope you guys are excited as I am. Let’s see if we can’t have our first annual BrittanaCon!!!
Reblogging for fandom awareness, as I’m super excited to help a new femslash con get off the ground! If you’re interested in our sister fandom, go follow their tumblr and help make BrittanaCon the best it can be!
Much Like West I shall be running another ‘contest” of sorts and With registration Fast approaching I’ve decided once again that FaberryCon is so awesome that I want to help someone go. So if you wanted to go and say couldn’t afford the cost of the attending membership, I’m running a ‘contest” of sorts. Send me an ask on tumblr “MisterMag00”(that’s 2 zero’s) telling me why you want to go and what it would mean to you ect. I will donate the cost of an attending membership for that lucky someone. Disclaimer: This only covers the cost of the attending membership:D haven’t quite chose an ending date for this but I shall keep you all updated:)

We’ve already heard from a few people that flying directly into Newark would cost more for them than flying into either JFK or LaGuardia. No problem! Kben has put together some terrific information about what it would take to get to the con from either of those airports in terms of travel time, effort, and cost so you can make an informed decision.
Here’s the skinny:
Now that the location to FaberryCon North has been announced, I can talk about something else that’s in the works.
In addition to the regular con programming, we will be having a day of sightseeing on the Thursday before. This will be unlike any other New York City tour, however. We will be cruising some of the major NYC landmarks and photo ops, for sure, but this will also be a tour of standout locations from Faberry fic.
There will be a map. There will be a digital version of the map. There will be me, in a yellow hat. There will be a level of organization and professionalism that rivals Rachel Berry’s. There may even be Bedazzling.
So, what I need from you, lovers, is some input on the places you’d like to see. Even if you’re not sure if you’re heading to the con (which you should, because YOU SHOULD), there will be a home version we’re hoping to make available to supporting members.
Keep in mind the tour will be limited to Manhattan itself and the bulk of it will probably be in the midtown area, just because I know most folks aren’t used to walking half the island.
You can reply here, message me, or email me with any ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am thrilled to announce that FaberryCon North, July 24-27th, will be held in Newark, New Jersey! We’ll be partying hard at the Hilton Newark Penn Station hotel, just a train ride away from all the wonders of the one and only New York City, home of Ms. Rachel Barbra Berry.
Huge thanks to Alicia, Alex, Leah, Kayla, and Kben for all their help in finding a terrific location for us!
Hotel details, initial registration/pricing info, and programming ideas are now available on our website!
Note: For those of you in a rush to buy plane tickets, please take time to read about the planned excursion around NYC on Thursday before the con! You’ll want to be sure you arrive in time for that if you’re interested (so, probably Wednesday night). We’ll post more details on that as they come available.
For now, yay! FaberryCon! \o/
