Staci had some issues getting internet connection at Twi-Con but is now online and getting us the latest info. To you, from Staci of 98331 GEAR, here is an update of what’s been going on since they arrived in Dallas early Wednesday morning: (I took the liberty of highlighting some of my favorite parts)
OMG…we havent slept in 24 hours and we still have work to do. We got all of our stuff to the hotel and now we have to go to dinner with my great aunt and cousins I haven’t seen in more than fifteen years….uuugghh…love em but I’m so freakin tired.
We are back from dinner now and it’s 11:00pm. We still have to put our sign together and finish some merchandise we need to start selling tomorrow.
We did get to bed at 3:00am and had to be back up at 6:00am so we did get a few hours sleep last night. We are now setting up for Twicon! The changed the dimensions on the booth so nothing we brought fits the right way. We are having to improvise very quickly, thank goodness my family is here to help.
People have been lining up for registration that doesn’t take place for another four hours! There are so many people here! I am going to some video for you all!
You guys won’t believe what’s happening! People are hooping and hollering & chanting to get in…doing some more video…
I have no internet! I cannot load my clips from TwiCon! oh…my eyes hurt from wearing contacts all day in tired eyes.
I still have no freakin internet! I have called tech support and they are no stinkin help! Crap! But TwiCon is fabulous! All the vendors are very friendly and we have found so much fun stuff we will be getting for the store! Just wait till you get to Forks! BTW there are some girls dressed up like the Twilight book covers..so cute but they move very quickly so I haven’t been able to get a pic. There is also a make-up artist who has been paged to do an actor’s make-up! We are all anxiously awaiting who it will be! Security is beefing up so the actors must be getting here.
It’s 11:00pm and tech support is sending someone to replace the internet cable in the room so I can hook up…for $20 freakin dollars a day….
It’s 11:30 pm and tech support sent someone to our room who had no idea what do do…OMG I’m so irritated. They will take care of it in the morning…so they say…
Well they replaced the cable….still no internet. Now I’m pissed.
hahahaha…we are having so much fun today. It has been all about PR. We have been interviewed by “What the Forks” and MTV!!! We have also been invited to another conference in Salt Lake City. It is being put on by the Twilight Moms and they are expecting more than 10,000 attendies! I was actually invited by Lisa herself (the head cheese of TM). Gotta run for now.
The guy next to me has had internet all along! He gave me his password so I would log onto his wifi…said i should have asked to begin with! How the heck would I know that he had internet?! So now I can load all my videos, pics and messages to you all!
Just had my pic taken w/a bella & edward look-a-like! They did such a good job, wait till you see the pic!
Well…we are doing pretty well…we are not going to sell out and go home with a load of cash but we are not going to go home w/a complete loss…AAAND we have met so many talented artists and fabulous people here. It has been so great to network with everyone. I’m not sure we will be doing a show so far away from home again but we will definitely be doing more shows!
