Hello there! I've been lurking on LJ for a while but haven't posted in some time. Anyway, I'm here to talk about my latest project...
The Browncoat Ball!
The Browncoat Ball is a weekend-long shindig for fans of Firefly and Serenity. It's held in a different city each year, and each city does its own thing, but all of them feature a dinner and fancy dress-up ball on Saturday night. Well, for 2011 the New England Browncoats put in a bid, and we won! And somehow I seem to be in charge of it. ;)
The event will be held October 21-23 in Providence/Warwick, RI. We'll gather on Friday for various entertainments including a Halloween party. Saturday during the day we'll send people out touring: one group will go to the mansions in Newport, RI, and another group will tour sites related to native son H.P. Lovecraft (and also pop over to Lizzie Borden's house). A third group will hang out and be social. Then we'll all reunite for the Ball in the evening. On Sunday we'll have a final opportunity to gather before people depart.
Another cool thing we have planned is that one guy in our group has collected quite an assortment of actual props from the show and the movie, and he's going to organize a Prop Museum at the hotel for us. I'll loan him my Reaver sword for the weekend. :)
If you're interested, visit http://www.browncoatball.com! I've even ventured into podcasting, so you can hear my dulcet tones telling you about our big plans.
I may even manage to enjoy the event. ;)

wandered this way via your mass-steam post, which was good b/c I had picked up a flyer for the Browncoat Ball at TempleCon, and then misplaced it! Are you looking for more workshops/performers?
Welcome! Sorry for the delayed reply. We're open to ideas for the Browncoat Ball -- what do you have in mind?
Hey this is Emmy from b0st0n, I added you! :)
