Before I start squeeing over fabrics and bling, I want to include a disclaimer of sorts:
Whenever a Worldcon is coming up, people start asking what to wear. My standard answer is to wear whatever makes you most comfortable, and that there is no geek uniform. Some wear geek t-shirts over jeans or shorts. Some wear dresses or even, on occasion, suits. Some wears corsets or, more rarely, full cosplay. Sometimes at our party someone donates tiaras, glitter, temporay tattoos or lightstick bling for everyone to play with, and it becomes even more awesome.
One of the awesome things about the BWB is that we include all types, so I think it's important to remind everyone to be themselves. Having said all that, if your inner Steampunk Air Pirate or Elvis Diva wants to come out to play, then ROCK ON!
I will dress up at least one night, maybe more (packing space might determine how many costumes I pack and how elaborate they are). Once the con is closer, it will be easier for those of us who want to dress up to plan in detail (for example, do we want to dress up for the BWB party, or for the masquarade if that is a different night--that sort of thing is too hard to hash out right now).
ETA: To anyone also on my Facebook, sorry if my "it's too hard to plan that far ahead in detail" attitude is confusing. The only reason I was already looking for ideas for a new skirt and accessories to go with my corset is so I can dress it up a bit for Halloween.
*throws glitter all over the thread in conclusion so as to end on a postive note*
