YO EVERYBODY

A reminder that Tigercon is Saturday, and that Tiger Can Town is happening again.

Information can be found at this post!  Please if we could get that post cycling around, since nobody has reblogged it save, like, two people.

I’ve added a list of food we need, which I am also including below, since we didn’t have time this year to make up an informative poster (sorry about that, the con snuck up on us).

  • FOOD WE NEED: canned fruits, canned meats, canned beans, canned vegetables, canned soups, canned sauces, infant formula, evaporated milk, peanut butter

I also added the below to the original post:

This started and is largely a Homestuck fandom thing, but we welcome members of all fandoms who want to participate.  The most important thing is to help people in need of food.  Surely we can put aside petty fandom differences for that.  That said, anyone of any fandom causing trouble of any kind (bullying/harassment, purposeful defacement of cosplay or can town collecting bins, assault, theft) will be told to leave and, if they do not, reported to whatever authority need be alerted.

Hey everyone!

It’s October finally and only a short time until Tigercon!  It’s coming early this year, on the 19th, so be ready!  We once again have the privilege of running the Tiger Can Town Canned Food Drive at Tigercon, so gather your cans and prepare!

TENTATIVE INFORMATION BELOW, IT IS VERY MUCH SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

Hello Everyone!


We apologize for how dead this Tumblr has been of late! However we are here to announce to you who would listen several very important points about Tigercon 2013!

1. Tigercon 2013 will be held on OCTOBER 19TH in Towson University’s Student Union from 10 AM to 10 PM

2. Weapons are still NOT ALLOWED. This includes fake swords, guns, rocket launchers, plasma canons, whips, nunchucks, riding crops, maces, flails and anything else that may resemble a dispenser of lethal force (Your sexiness not included) If you aren’t sure your prop counts as a “weapon”, please email us at tigerconevents@gmail.com, we will happily answer your inquiry!

3. Artist Alley registration closes on August 28th, 2013, yes, we mean the day after tomorrow. To register, please go to our website: http://tigercon.wordpress.com/artists/ Keep in mind that by submitting an application to the AA, you are agreeing to the Rules of the Con (there are new, artist-specific ones this year), so please read those carefully: http://tigercon.wordpress.com/rules/

4. Tigercon is an all-ages convention which is free admission and open to the public. There will be children there. Please cover your private areas. Also it’s October and a bit nippy at night, so please bring a sweater!

5. There will be no rave, dance, or equivalent event at Tigercon. We know you all have moves like Jaeger, but please leave them (along with your 3DMG swords) at home.

6. We will be having a COSPLAY CONTEST again this year, to sign up and show off your mad skills, please go to our website: http://tigercon.wordpress.com/cosplay/ All fandoms are welcome at Tigercon, even though the con itself is an anime convention.

7. As always, please pre-reg, even though it doesn’t cost anything, it helps us get an accurate guesstimate of how many attendees we’ll have! Pre-reg here: http://tigercon.wordpress.com/registration/

So during the meet we passed around my sketchbook and people wrote down their tumblr usernames!  I’m fairly certain this isn’t everyone, but here’s who we have:

  1. rachelthehouseelf
  2. ohnoitsahomestuckblog
  3. spectraloasis
  4. crackedheartcontainer
  5. greyscalearmageddons
  6. alosbothe

  14. inverts

Also, here’s our first picture of the main architecture of Can Town, courtesy of Polskiskiski (actually I took it with their camera).

More photos up throughout the week!  And if anyone else has photos of the Can Town meetup, do let me know and I’ll reblog them, or submit them (the submit box should be open, also let me know if it’s not)!

Tiger Can Town: Successful!

Wow, guys thank you all so much who attended and donated and who helped us with carrying things!  I have a bunch of names of people to thank and all sorts of stuff to post up about the actual building of Can Town (photos mostly), but man I am TIRED.

Stuff like list of attendees will be posted tomorrow.

Photos will be posted sometime next week (I’ve got my first couple final projects due on Monday and Tuesday so they may take until Wednesday).

But oh my gosh I am so impressed by how smoothly it went.  Besides a few people just kind of abandoning their can bags, everyone was there with their cans.  And even though there were some small labeling problems, you all listened to Gretchen when she read the rules and to me when I moved us outside (I also apologize that I had to have Gretchen be the one to yell at you all; I am not a loud person and have some problems judging my own volume so I tend to think I’m yelling and actually be talking quietly).

You all were really good about getting your cans and orderly lining up to get them counted and claim a prize, and you were all very good about building the actual Can Town!

Also, extra-special thanks to everyone who asked to and actually did help us carry cans/bins or re-pack the cans into the bins after Can Town!  We had 25 of the super-special surprise magnets printed up to give out to those who were “STRONG of heart” and we gave out 15 of them!  Also, you all were way overthinking the super-special surprise clue, but I suppose that’s only to be expected of the Homestuck fandom!

This is still a thing happening this Saturday!

Now with both prints we’re offering!  5+ cans gets you one print of your choice, 10+ gets you both!

ALL INFORMATION (especially as to time and location) IS STILL HERE IN THIS POST.

Is everybody ready?  =)

This just in:

necromatador:

Gretchen and I have managed to meet.

We’re making a list of the rules for the Can Town meet-up, so we can go over them before we actually get to the Can Town building.

Then we’re grabbing our first donations.

Then we’re going to a Goodwill and seeing if they have any horrible Christmas cardigans/sweaters that would work for Dave and Roxy, because we realized we’ll be freezing our asses off since we’ll be building the Can Town outside.

ON THAT NOTE: REMEMBER TO BRING A HOODIE OR COAT OR SWEATER OR OTHERWISE DRESS WARMLY.  THEY DO HAVE COIN-OPERATED LOCKERS IN THE UNIVERSITY UNION WHERE TIGERCON IS BEING HELD, AND THEY PROVIDE TOKENS FOR YOU TO USE TO OPEN THEM.  YOU CAN STASH COATS THERE IF NEED BE.

That last part is important.

This is still a thing happening this Saturday!
