TimeGate 2014, the Doctor Who (& more) annual convention, is taking place in Atlanta, GA, USA, over the Memorial Day weekend, May 23rd-25th. Please check out the site for a list of guests, events, hotel and travel info, memberships, and more, here: http://timegatecon.org/
If you find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed by the throngs of people at the big cons like SDCC and Dragoncon, please consider attending TimeGate. :) However, just because the con is smallish, doesn't mean that there isn't plenty to do! We have seven tracks of programming! Also: major events, with the con's guests, in the Main Ballroom, several rooms for gaming, a wonderful consuite, photo opps and autographs with the guests, an even larger dealers' room this year, fan tables, performances (musical and theatrical), a charity cabaret, a masquerade, and more.
One of the tracks, or portals as we call them at TimeGate, is the Wardrobe Portal, which is mostly about costuming/cosplaying in the Who'verse. The DW track is the Gallifrey Portal, which has the major guest events in the Main Ballroom, in addition to the fan panels in the track room.
Memberships are only $45 through May 1st; afterwards, they are $60 at the door. Check the website for member registration:http://www.timegatecon.org

Greetings! I come to your humble community to do a little self-plugging.
I am currently running a Classic Who Twitter Blog where I post my Twitter liveblogs from watching Classic Who and I thought I should make myself known here. Updates are fairly regular, usually every couple days or so (although I'm just about to go on a week's hiatus), and for extra fun I'm also in the middle of the 30 Days of Who meme that's been going around.
So please drop by sometime! I love visitors.
Want to march in the D*C parade on Saturday morning, and/or just hang out with other Doctor Who/Torchwood/Sarah Jane Adventures
costumers and cosplayers? I've got the info for you right here, under the cut. :)( Read more...Collapse )
