SQUEE!!! I just got the email with the VIP Ticket information for the Grand Finale at the theater in Pennsylvania! I am so excited!!! Is anyone else going to that?
I really wish I could have afforded it, but I kind of did the best I could with my Kickstarter $ with the level I went in on last year. It’s a shame, too, because I’m in the Philly suburbs not too far from where this will be. But no regerts even if FOMO!
I did the VIP party in New York after the 1101 premiere because some one couldn’t go and they gave it away to a grateful stranger who was me, so I can say firsthand that the parties are amazing and to get to meet the cast and crew was a joy. You’re going to have so much fun!
I’ll be there!
sighs You and me both, as it’s also too expensive for me. Man, it would’ve been so cool to take a photo of me with all the bots. In fact, I’m picturing it right now.
I’ll be there
Well that’s two other people… guess I should go ahead and find a hotel near the theater now.
ETA: Question for the group at large; is cosplay encouraged at this shindig? I’ve used my Jonah jumpsuit at every live event I’ve gone to and I don’t want to break the tradition!
I also need help deciding who to bring… Tom or Crow. I have replica puppets of both, but I’m only one person; I can’t bring them both. Last time I went to a live event I brought Tom; time before that it was Crow. So should I just take turns with them and bring Crow this time?
Cosplay is always encouraged!
Sigh! I have a ticket but it’s looking like it is too expensive for me just to get there. Between hotels, airfare and possibly renting a car, it’s not looking good. Still trying to crunch the numbers but yikes!
Oh no! I hope you can still make it!
Air BnB and Uber? That might help with some of the costs. The airfare is the tough one, yeah.
Unfortunately, I’m to far away in VA to offer an air mattress to crash on. I’m geographically unhelpful.
Yeah, I’m crunching all the number and trying to think outside the box. It doesn’t help that I’ve already got a con I’m going to the month before and one in February, so I’ve got those expenses already dialed in. Still, I’ve got a week or so to try and figure this out. Fortunately, I did get to attend the LA premiere for season 11 so at least I’ve done one already. Thanks for the ideas though.
Might be time to build a GPC
I’m going, too! Just bought my plane tickets. I’m going to stay in Philly for a few extra days since I’ve never been. I haven’t gotten a hotel yet, and I’m not sure if I’ll need to rent a car to get to the theater if I stay in Philly or if there is public transit. Any advice would be wonderful!
Sadly I am not all that mechanically capable. I can put together puzzles and small metal models of things, but that’s about the extent of my building abilities. I didn’t even build my Tom and Crow; I bought them off eBay from a guy who makes them.
What about a GPC2? She’s lighter and more maneuverable, after all.
