Norwescon was just fantastic! A big thank you to everyone who came to our concert and packed the room, and of course, thanks everyone else who stayed for The Doubleclicks right afterward! Weren't they awesome? We spent so much energy on the concert, that Vixy ended up pumpkining immediately afterwards, so we had to miss open filk (sorry). We both seem to have come down with something and ended up staying home from work and being lumps today, but it's helping.
Bonus: Here are cellphone camera videos of our entire set if you didn't get a chance to make it on Saturday. Thank you, Elspeth!
Another awesome thing that happened at Norwescon is that Torrey won Best in Class and Best Workmanship for the Master class at the Masquerade. The costume was a carefully hand-sewn and hand-dyed replica of this dress including a complex wig and hand-constructed jewelry and beading. Here is a video of her presentation during the masquerdade (updated, better quality). (Edit: And here are some Flickr shots of the finished costume, and even more here.) We are so very proud of her!
Coming up, we've got an exciting piece of news for you PDX fans: Vixy and Tony will be opening for The Doubleclicks at their CD release party, Saturday, April 28th, at Backspace Cafe in Portland! Everyone who asks us when we're gonna play Portland, well, the answer is, Saturday the 28th! Come see us!
After that, we're back at Wayward on Cinco De Mayo!
