I just shared this on Facebook, and the Facebook algorithm was all, "Hey, cool, I think I'll let like 6 people see this," but this is IMPORTANT, so...
The ball will be held at Atlanta's Center for Puppetry Arts, NOT one of the Dragon Con hotels, but since it's happening the first night of Dragon Con the two have partnered together.
Here's the official blurb:
A magical, exclusive night to celebrate the opening a new special exhibit - Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Journey to Goblin City at Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts.
Be the first to see this spellbinding collection of goblins and gowns, with behind-the-scenes artwork, photos, and video to guide you on your journey into the world of the Goblin King! Wear your Labyrinth or masquerade costumes and masks to participate in a costume contest judged by Brian Henson, Co-CEO of the Jim Henson company! Pose for photos on the Goblin King’s throne and dance to the music from the film and other dance favorites from the ‘80s.
Changing room and bag check provided. Beer and wine cash bar. Complimentary heavy hors d'oeuvres. Free Dragon Con shuttle service to and from the Center for Puppetry Arts. Tickets go on sale May 21st at noon and will be limited.
Aaand this is me:
(ALL THE KERMIT FLAILS)
Last night John and I watched the film and all 2 hours of behind-the-scenes featurettes again, so I. am. PUMPED.
I'm especially delighted that the Center is providing changing rooms and a bag check for cosplayers, because you KNOW these costumes are going to be amaaaaaazing. Heck, John and I are brainstorming dream-options right now. Because, you know, we don't have enough stuff to do... :D
Who else will we see there?
