San Diego Comic-Con 2013!
San Diego Comic-Con 2013 was a success! We had a great time talking to everyone who came to our booth. Some of them were new fans and some were familiar faces but everyone helped raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. In total we raised $2,362.76 in donations from you guys, proceeds from our merchandise will be added to that total at the end of the year.
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog
This year was the 5th anniversary of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog. We know, we can’t believe it’s been five years already either! Felicia Day recorded us a sweet and funny video reminiscing about her Dr. H days and thanking the fans for their continued interest in Dr. Horrible.
Our costume contest had four categories: Dr. Horrible, Penny, Captain Hammer, and others (ELE members, groupies, Bad Horse Choir). We also had a special category for children dressed up at Dr. Horrible characters.
We had quite a few signers at our booth this year. Our first signers for the convention were the wonderful Jane Espenson and Brad Bell. We were selling copies of the Husbands graphic novel that they both co-wrote. Other signers were Camden Toy, Sandeep Parikh, Michelle Boyd, Seanan Mcguire, Belle Holder, Jose Molina, and Marian Call. All signers asked that, instead of giving money to them, the fans donate what they could to St. Jude.
Can’t Stop The Serenity: Orange County
We mentioned in the last newsletter that Can’t Stop the Serenity: Orange County is set for Saturday, Sept. 21 but now we have a few more details! The big news is that we will be screening Firefly episode “Out of Gas”! We are very excited that we are able to show it at our CSTS with permission from Twentieth Century Fox. We will also have live music from The Fallen Stars, a SoCal band just back from a tour of Europe whose work includes Firefly inspired music. There will be an auction and door prizes as well.
It all starts at 7:00 pm at Starplex Woodbridge Movies 5. Tickets ($15) are on sale now through the event webpage and donations are also gratefully accepted to benefit Equality Now.
Just a reminder that if you are interested in putting on a CSTS event in your town California Browncoats is happy to help and sponsor your event. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Long Beach Comic-Con
We will be exhibiting at Long Beach Comic-Con for the second time. This year the convention is November 23rd & 24th at Long Beach Convention Center. Tickets for the weekend are only $40 and can be purchased at the LBCC website. We will have our usual assortment of Firefly related books, shirts, and knick-knacks.
We Want You!
We wouldn’t be able to do everything we need to without volunteers. If you are interested in helping us out during a convention or another California Browncoats event please head over to our volunteerYahoo group to keep up with volunteer announcements. You don’t need a Yahoo account or need to join the group to see the messages.
