Revel_ Infinitus
Death Eater Agenda 
14th-Jun-2010 08:01 pm
DEATH EATER
I've heard that the formal programming schedule should be out any day now, and I know most Death Eaters like to have their nefarious plans all mapped out in advance, so this brings to mind a few things:

1.     Revels.  While everyone can of course wear their DE gear whenever they want, in cons past, the Welcoming Feast has been an event Death Eaters gather for and descend upon as a group.  This year, according to the preliminary schedule,  the Welcoming Feast is on Thursday from 1:30-3:00.  I've heard from a number of people that they'll not be able to attend the Welcoming Feast this year, so they'd like to work out additional opportunities to converge.  So, any ideas anyone?  What day(s) does everyone plan to Death Eat?
      On a related note, I've heard that even though the Night of a Thousand Wizards park event is after hours, masks won't be allowed.  Has anyone heard anything about this?  I've been trying to keep an eye on the HPEF website and forums for something regarding this, but haven't seen anything yet.  Well, it's something to be kept in mind because I know there were some (incl me) who wanted to wear their DE costume to this event.  Some sort of backup plan would not be a bad idea.

2.     Programming.  I think it would be interesting to know what formal/informal programming fellow Death Eaters are involved in (as an example, I believe some are involved in a Live Wizarding Chess Tournament).  Do you know of any programming that relates to Death Eaters or the Dark Lord? If so, point it out!  Noting a time and location (if you have that info) would be helpful as well.  Self-pimpage is encouraged.  The reason for all of this is...

3.     Death Eater's Guide to Infinitus/Death Eater Agenda.  I'm going to attempt to compile a schedule of Death Eater/Dark Lord-related events and things DE's might be most interested it.  I'll also include times when Death Eaters are going to try and get together to 'Revel' or attend an event together.  I'm thinking much of this info will come from the information provided by everyone in #'s 1&2 above.  


Only a month to go people!  *flails*

I've heard that even though the Night of a Thousand Wizards park event is after hours, masks won't be allowed.

This was posted somewhere official, yes, although I thought it was just that they wouldn't be allowed on the rides (along with trailing scarves/robes, etc - all safety considerations). Hang on, let me see if I can find it.

eta: Can't find it anywhere. I thought I remembered reading about it in my RSS reader which probably means it was on the wordpress blog (http://infinitus2010.wordpress.com/), but the post which contains another line I remember for sure ("Night of a Thousand Wizards will happen, rain or shine. If it rains, ponchos will be available for attendees.") doesn't now contain the information about what clothing was not allowed and it's possible it got deleted when the post was updated about the # of tickets remaining or something. I'd email them maybe if you want to be sure (info@infinitus2010.org).

I'll definitely be attending the Welcoming Feast. I'm not sure about what formal programming I'll be attending, as I haven't gotten the latest schedule yet.

What day(s) does everyone plan to Death Eat?
I believe there's only one day where I won't be welcome to revel with you lot, as Luna Lovegood is not a Death Eater. Need a captive? *G*

On a related note, I've heard that even though the Night of a Thousand Wizards park event is after hours, masks won't be allowed.
In every after-hours event I've ever attended (including many trips to Halloween Horror Nights), costumes/masks are NOT permitted. I've seen many a costumed attendee to such events turned away at the door after waiting in line with barely an apology.

The Universal Studios policy as of now is to address the issue of costumes on a case-by-case basis. They do sell wizarding robes in Hogsmeade, and I've seen youngsters wearing them out and about. HOWEVER, the Muggle staff at the entry gates do not have to let you in if they believe you to be in violation of their No Costumes Decree. (I honestly doubt that the muggles at the entrance will be kept up-to speed regarding NoaTW' special circumstances.)

Perhaps NoaTW should be an incognito event for us revelers. Also, once in the park, any loose articles (wands, snakes, bags, torture devices, etc.) MUST be stowed in lockers before getting into the line queues for The TriWizard Task and the Forbidden Journey. Security patrols in the line queues for these rides will feel no guilt if you wait for two hours, then are forced to step out of line to stow your items, only to have to wait again.

Note: As the security staff of the wizarding villages are outposts of Kingsley Shacklebolt's new regime, they might not be too keen on our mask-donning activities inside the park.

We'll play it by George Weasley's ear.

Is the formal programming schedule posted yet? I'll decide which events I would like to attend once I review it, and I'll post it here for you. events and things DE's might be most interested it.

Ponchos will be available to attendees in case of rain. I'm not sure of their cost, probably around $10. Best to pack one, just in case.

Awesome! I cosplay Luna too. :D

I've heard that we'll have different costume guidelines for NoaTW than the park's usual guidelines since the event is outside of their normal hours. We'll just have to keep an eye out for an update on this. Hopefully it'll be soon! http://www.hpef.net/forums/showthread.php?t=21669

Yes - once you peruse the programming, let us know what you think looks interesting.

I remember reading it too. Looking through the forums, I found this topic that mentions costumes.

Hopefully those guidelines Hedwig mentions will be out soon! As soon as they are, I'll be sure to pass it along.

So pretty much DE robes are not permitted in the park and school robes are okay?

*wangsting*

I'd love to see any pics you have of you cosplaying Luna if you've got 'em!
16th-Jun-2010 10:12 pm (UTC)
Still not sure yet. I'm still crossing my fingers that we can wear DE gear...obviously not on the rides (I know I wouldn't want to risk getting a cloak caught or losing my mask). Imagine the photo ops!!! The last post on that thread from Hedwig says:
"The guidelines should be out soon. And 'someone' at Universal probably won't have any idea what you're talking about since they have a policy for the general public. Believe the Infinitus policy is different." (The previous poster said they were going to send univeral a pic of their robe.)

So...we'll just have to wait and see. I hate waiting. LOL! :)

Sure! Here's a couple pics of me cosplaying Luna. Well, the last one is the lion hat I just finished...haven't worn that one to a con yet.

We'll have to get a photo together! It's so cool to meet and hang out with fellow Lunas.

I LOVE the lion hat! Amazing. My only Luna pic I have is my usericon because my old computer was stolen. :(

I've been trying to get more info on NoaTW's costume policy, but the staff I've spoken with really doesn't have specifics on the event. I guess I can drive over there (it's about 5 minutes from me), or just wait for Infinitus staff to find out.

My bet is that school robes (similar to the ones they sell in house), ties, and scarves (again, like the in-house merch) are okay, while masks aren't.

Worst case scenario, we can take pictures in our masks at the park and then stow them in our bags. =\

I'm going through my formal programming list now. Have to check with the manfriend as to what he wants to do on Saturday, but should send it your way soon. :)

What are you wearing to the ball?

Thanks! Too bad you lost all you photos! Well, you'll get more in July. :)

Well, as you said earlier, we'll probably need to play it by George Weasley's ear. How cool that you live so close the park! I think we could wait until we hear something from the Infinitus folks. Hopefully the costume guidelines will be out soon!

I'll probably go as Luna to the ball. I'm trying to make the egg yolk robes she wore to Bill/Fleur's wedding at the beginning if DH. If that doesn't work out, I'll probably wear the HBP Slug club Christmas dress I wore last year. ;)
