Do you have a costume-related website?

Do you have a costume-related blog?

Do you participate in online costume forums and communities?

Would you like to help out Costume-Con (and Costume-Con 26 in particular)?

Costume-Con 26 has some very ambitious plans. We've already got over 500 pre-registered members, but that's just a step on the way to making Costume-Con 26 an event to remember. We could really use your help in raising awareness of Costume-Con.

What can you do? Costume-Con 26 has a stack of link banners ready for you to put on your website.

You could put one of these links...
  • on your website
  • in a journal entry
  • on your blog's profile page
  • in your forum signature
...or anywhere else you have a presence on the web.

Just grab a code fragment from one of the text boxes and add it to your page. If you're going to post this on your personal web page instead of LJ, get rid of the <lj-raw> and </lj-raw> items; they're purely there for the benefit of LJ folks.

While we're on the subject of links, the CC26 website has its own links section. Go there and submit your costume-related website for listing on our links page.

(REPOST!!!!!!!)

So for those of you who don't remember (or didn't know in the first place), 4 years ago Kevin spent a year as Emperor of San Jose. The Imperial Court System (and the Imperial Royal Lion Monarchy of San Jose) is a drag/performance oriented organization that builds community and raises funds for other charitable organizations. Not surprisingly, these folks are all about dressing up.

Next weekend (Saturday, March 8, 2008, to be specific) is San Jose's annual Coronation.

It's the big event of the year, where the past year's monarchs are recognized and celebrated, and the new monarchs are elected. Out-of-town courts and in-town businesses and organizations are presented to the outgoing monarchs as a part of this (it's called "walking" for reasons obvious and not).

Costume-Con 26 and The Unconventional Foundation will be walking at San Jose Coronation on Saturday night. It's a good spot to promote the convention.

If you have the time available, please consider joining us at coronation. The more folks we have walking with us, the bigger splash we make. If you can do this, let us know before 5:00 Friday so we can add your name to protocol.

The Coronation theme is "#3 Beakman Place" (Auntie Mame) so if you want to dress in theme, '30s-'40s historical styles, foxhunt "pinks" and all sorts of Orientalia (which is what the last scene in the movie winds up as) would fit. Theme dressing isn't required, formal is always acceptable.
