Potterheads rock out to “Bohemian Rhapsody” at Ascendio

Finally uploaded it

This is what happens when you pre-game with tequila before going downstairs and drinking rum straight from water bottles. You end up drunk singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” with a Gryffindor version of The Doctor and a goat full of glow sticks.

Best. Night. Ever. :D

omg, me at 2:31 is the funniest ever. Also at 4:10 I remove my headband and glasses so I can headbang. I completely forgot this even happened. XD So…can we go back? :(

Bookshop: How author Lev Grossman bridges fandom and fiction

DD: But the right to talk back, as fan or a critic, is ingrained.

“Yeah. The arrow used to only point one way, and that would be the end of the line, and now it recirculates. This strange sort of ecology around any creative work. And it’s amazing, but it’s very different from what we had in…

Troubled Girl Films: Notes on Ascendio (how I became a Harry Potter fan)

troubledgirlfilms:

What happens when an impartial documentary filmmaker goes to a con to discuss fandom and becomes a fan? That’s what recently happened to me as I was shooting at Ascendio, a Harry Potter Con for my film about participatory culture and fan creativity. I am a fan-girl, just not of the…

I sat at the OTW’s information booth this past weekend at Ascendio. I manned the booth most of the day on Friday when I wasn’t in panels; on Saturday I wasn’t able to man it at all, so I wound up leaving our OTW shoebox out on the table with all our brochures and business cards, in the hope that people would still out request for information.One person took the time to tell us exactly what they think of the work we do.
All humor aside, this person, whoever they are, whatever their motives, basically very nicely summed up why the work we do at the OTW is so very important. It’s not just that we’re doing fanwork preservation (though when I talked to people about Open Doors and Fanlore, they always got really excited). It’s that simply by existing, we’re making visible the argument that fanwork is okay, and the more that visibility provokes responses like this, the more we know conversations are happening that gradually move us further along the sociocultural spectrum towards general, widespread acceptance of fan and remix cultures.
This is why, in a nutshell, I’m really happy to be on staff and to be doing con outreach and development/membership work, and all the other stuff I’m doing. Because the bottom line is that before there was an OTW, there was no pro-active, organized, systematic fan response to this kind of attitude towards fandom. Now there’s us. And as frustrating as things get sometimes, holy crap, is it still better to have a broken and flawed OTW than no OTW at all. Because even on its worst day, this org is still amazing, and I’m still kind of blown away that it exists. ♥ 

This is fascinating and something I would like to gain permission to use in my film demo reel on women in fandom.

Someone clearly didn’t make it to my Mugglenet Academia recording session in the Common Room on Friday morning, or my panel with the awesome Casey and Rachael - or, in fact, pay attention to any of the OTW’s advocacy through the last few years. Yes, this demonstrates perfectly why the OTW’s work is so important. 
And pennswoods - without giving legal advice, in the US you can use this for educational purposes pursuant to fair use without getting permission, so I think you should have at it.

Photos from Ascendio! Or alternatively, Hyu takes photos of everyone who is not cosplaying Harry Potter at the Harry Potter convention (oops) though not counting that fabulous boggart snape

If you’re pictured and would like credit or anything else like that please let me know~

At the Manor Ball. Rowena Ravenclaw was born to dance.

Photos by Squeek Photography and HPEF (1) and Rita De La Torre (2-4). Smooth dance moves by heidi8.

Rowena, you looked so lovely that night! Did you end up doing any karaoke? 

Ha-ha. No. The only time Rowena sings in public is when she’s drunk too much elf-made wine or loses a bet to Salazar, the bastard.

Well, that’s something to plan for next time!
