3 years ago, you may recall we mounted a group viewing of "Spamalot" for my 49th birthday.

http://kproche.livejournal.com/210890.html

(If you don't recall, it was a fabulous outing).

On Saturday, August 25, a bunch of us are attending the Monty Python and the Holy Grail Quote-along at the Retro Dome.

So, I'm encouraging any of you who can to dig out your tabard and come join the fun (it's 15 bucks for the show). Reply in the comments and we can make an effort to get you seated in our mob.

If you weren't part of the original KotLT, we have a few extra tunics. Comment away and we might be able to kit you out, too!

OK, how many of you are coming to Silicon?

I'd like your help storming the masquerade stage just before I bring the judges back to announce awards. :-)

Who will be there?

Time for bed for this birthday boy.

Thanks to all my friends who offered lovely birthday wishes, to the gang who came to Spamalot, and to the cast and crew of Spamalot who also made a point of saying hi! and chatting with us.

more later. Bedtime now.

See you tomorrow at 6:45! Be there or be hyperbolic!

All the fabric came out of our stash.
My crown was made out of materials bought during the Liberacicus Mk II project.
My belt is from a reel of really beautiful trim I've been "saving" for a project for nearly 10 years.
Our group's "Lady of the Lake" costume was finished with more fabric and a couple of old jeweled pins from the stash.

I did have to buy the inkjet fabric to do the heraldry and the name labels for the backs.
We ([livejournal.com profile] bovil and I, and [livejournal.com profile] brittunculus and J.) bought some colored bias tape for our surcoats.

Most of the other surcoats, however, are edged with black bias tape that we had (unfolded) on a reel in our stash. One of Sunday's early chores was folding and pressing it.
(It turned out VERY narrow, and sewing it on proved to be the major bottleneck in the project. The final four surcoats were simply edged by loading a serger with black thread and doing a two-thread overlock on them. We'd all run out of the patience and coordination to feed the skinny bias tape through a machine properly any more).

'Bout time we did a costume from stash, and managing 20 of them is a good thing!

I've been diligently working on the coats of arms for the Knights of the Log Table.
ETA3:15pm -- added one more to the gallery.
Mathematical Heraldry under the cut. Don't look if you want to be surprised. )

A couple more to do, then I can print them so they have time to cure before assembly tomorrow.

They arrived today -- 24 tickets in a very nice block:

Row 8, seats 2-8 (even numbers)
Row 9, seats 2-20
Row 10, seats 2-20

Now we just have to figure out where the Birthday Boy is going to sit ;-)

At the BASFA meeting on the 31st, several of the folk attending Spamalot with me for my birthday ([livejournal.com profile] dprisoner and [livejournal.com profile] brittunculus, I'm looking at you, among others) expressed the strong opinion that as the Birthday Boy, I ought to be wearing a crown in our little costumed outing.

Now, my Imperial Crown would be both impractical (because of its weight) and discourteous to wear, given that it is some 15" tall.

Then, however, I remembered that I had bought self-adhesive glitter craft foam as emergency backup to build Liberacicus' silver laurel wreath.

I also had all my construction sketches from the Imperial Crown as a starting point.

Presenting the Crafty Crown of Sparkly-ness )

And best of all, I've already cleaned up the (small) mess in the studio now that's it done!

I finally connected with group sales at Broadway San Jose, and we now have 17 seats in a block in the center of rows 9 and 10 for September 15th.

They're still printing the pasteboard, so I can expect them in the mail in a week or so.

[livejournal.com profile] dprisoner, there are no prohibitions on audience members wearing costumes (I did promise no swords; but they'd be a hassle to deal with in theater seating anyway :-) ).

Further plotting will probably be done in friends-locked posts.
