As you're all probably aware by now, Kristen will be attending Breakout Beyond, a Veronica Mars/Prison Break convention held in London on June 13-15th. Over on the KB board at FF, we've been planning to put together a fan book to give to Kristen, like the many fan books I'm sure you've seen before, and we want everyone to contribute!
Who's In Charge
The book is being organized and put together by myself (wowsugarpuss_), Eva (motylik), Mandy (smokinmilkmaid) and Rai (bruised_candy).
All of us besides Rai will be at the convention, and will be handing the book over to Kristen. If for some reason she has to cancel, we will
The book has 24 pages to fill, and everyone who signs up will have a page each (the book is 12 inches x 9 inches). If we have more people signing up than pages in the book, we'll just buy another one!
This is what the book currently looks like:
Obviously, we will be making it much prettier!
We are also planning on buying a few little gifts to give to Kristen, including things from each different country we come from. If you are not coming to the convention and would like to send a gift, you can email fickledame about this, and she will give you an address you can send it to. Keep in mind that these gifts must be small - fickledame has to be able to bring them with her, and we don't want to bury Kristen under a mountain of giant teddy bears.
There is also going to be a fan-vid competition at the convention, which the guests will judge. If anyone not attending would like to make a video (Veronica Mars related) and send it to us, we will then pick our favourites, and enter them in the competition, giving you full credit for making them. And if you win, we'll send you your prize!
We will also be making a donation to a charity that Kristen supports (most likely Invisible Children). When the sign-ups are all in we will be making a seperate entry about how you can contribute to this. You don't have to be taking part in the book to be able to donate, and vice versa - you can just do one or the other if you'd like!
If you would like to take part, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post, or alternatively, you can visit the Fan Project thread on FF, and comment there. The thread on FF is where we will be discussing the progress on the book, so I recommend you bookmark it if you are taking part, and want to be kept up-to-date! I will however be posting all important updates here, so if you're not on my flist already, feel free to friend me so you can be kept in the loop.
You have three weeks to sign up, giving you til March 23rd to make up your mind about whether or not you want to take part. At that point, we will update again listing everyone taking part, and giving you all the information you'll need on how to submit your contributions to the book, and what kind of things we're looking for. (Although to give you an idea, it will just be the usual stuff - letters, drawings, fanart, etc. If you don't want to fill a whole page, and just want to put in a letter, that's fine too!)
You will then have 10 weeks to get your contributions together and submit them to us, giving you til May 18th.
March 23rd - Deadline for signing up.
May 18th - Final submission deadline for everything you want put into the book.
June 13th - Breakout Beyond!
