No Goodbyes...Just Good Memories 2012 Xena Convention Final Report

Yes I have plagerised Star Trek's Tasha Yar. I love that holodeck eulogy so I'm using it (since my fandoms collided at the con..might as well go with the theme)

The 2012 Xena Convention is over and it was my final convention despite what Creation may or may not do next year. I suspect this the last convention for many other folks judging by the chatter.

Here are the photos from the final day

Gabrielle Shows Up At 2012 Xena Con + Photo Op with Renee!

DSC_0310.jpgRenee made a surprise appearance as Gabrielle in Katherine Fugate's play on Saturday..AND did a photo op in her BGSB and brown skirt + Staff (was very excited about that)

I wrote the following in my con blog:

Saw a message from Missy to get my butt down to the photo Op area because I was going to get my all time wish of seeing Renee in that itty bitty BGSB and brown skirt PLUS staff. YES! Alrighty now, this is special :) It was fabulous and for me who hates photos...I made an exception for Ms Renee :) Felt like a little kid getting all giddy.We then had Katherine Fugate who once again put in a play about how we wanted the season finale to really be. Suprise guest included Claudia Black, Crystal Chappell, Bridget Brannagh (Army Wives), Tim and David and then the REAL surprise of the day...RENEE playing..Gabrielle! LOL! Oh my gooness the room ERUPTED. I can't describe into words other than to say...god help us on Sunday when Lucy and Renee are on stage together. It's going to blow the roof off!

What was the play about? Gabrielle proposes to Xena :) Xena accepts of course.

It's Time To Party! 2012 Xena Convention


Hey folks, it's coming close to the convention and all the AUSXIP editing staff will be at the con - first time this has happened which is interesting. From Wednesday the site will be in skeleton staff mode. Updates will still occur but a bit later than normal.

I will be live blogging from the convention and you can follow directly on the AUSXIP Convention Page, on twitter or facebook.

This is going to be my last convention (whether Creation does another is up in the air judging by the poll they have on their site) It's going to be emotional and I'm packing the tissues. Let's all go out and have a great time, laugh and cry and then laugh some more. We are a family - sometimes a dysfunctional family but a family. The Xenaverse truly rocks and it's the best fandom I've ever been in or will be in.

Let's go party people!!

Leaving on a Jet Plane....

Hey folks,

RightO! I'm off on my annual holiday and this time I'm trekking across the pond to the US for a few weeks to catch up with mates, attend the 2012 Final Journey Xena Convention and just have a great time!

While I'm away, Lori will be taking over and updating AUSXIP and the rest of the sites. I'm looking forward to watching the Spartacus premiere (I'll have a review/preview of the first two episodes next week).

ALL the AUSXIP staff will be at the Xena Convention so I'll pop in by live blogging the convention with news, photos and other assorted goodies; you can follow this on AUSXIP or twitter and facebook. It's going to be mega fun and mega emotional.

Spartacus is going to be HUGE and the Xena Con will be INCREDIBLE!

I'll be back on board around 8th Feb!

Battle On!
