Auction Items from Other Fandoms

We said we were equal opportunity and here's the proof - donated items from other fandoms.

An autographed picture of Justin Hartley, Green Arrow on Smallville, donated by one of our local members, Amie:

One of three sets of Buffy collectible cards, donated by Tristan.

And an autographed copy of an Angel comic, featuring Drusilla, written by Drusilla herself - Juliet Landau. Generously donated by Lioness, CSTS Toronto organiser.

So come to CSTS Vancouver, bring lots of cashy money, because that's the only kind we accept, and pick up an item - or two or three - at the auction, knowing your money is going to a good cause. It's a win/win situation!

Are You Ready To Sing??

Great news! The CSTS cities have been given permission to show Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog at our events, so start exercising your vocal chords in preparation for singing along with Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion. Of course, you have already been practising your evil laugh for our Evil Laugh Contest, haven't you?

Thanks to everyone who ordered a t-shirt or hoodie. They will be available to be picked up on the day of the event. If you missed out, we will have a t-shirt and a hoodie available at the silent auction to bid on. A reminder that the auction will be cash only.

We also have prizes for the Evil Laugh contest, Costume contest, and the Whedon trivia bingo. As part of the bingo prize package, I'm donating this cast picture from Dollhouse, signed by Shawna Trpcic, the costume designer. Shawna was also the costume designer for Firefly, Serenity, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and The Cabin in The Woods, which was filmed here and will be released in early 2011.

One of the newest BC Browncoats has donated a very shiny necklace she made to the auction.

Proving that we are an equal opportunity Geekdom, I am also donating this sheet of never-been-opened Star Wars US stamps to the auction.

This just in! Vancouver has been picked as one of the seven CSTS cities to show a rough cut of the fan film, Browncoats: Redemption. Their official world premiere of the finished film (about 40 minutes in length) will be at Dragon*Con in September, but they are providing copies to the seven cities whose (short) essays they deemed the best. The topic was why your city should be picked. Watch the video announcement here.

Also, we will have the big screen debut of at least eight (very short) episodes of The Masked Roger: Mental Perceptionist, an original applicant to the Evil League of Evil, conceived, written, filmed, directed, and starring our own AlanD.
