This is for my friend Bill “The Button” DeRouchey who enthusiasticaly emailed me when he found out I was going to the Buffy Vampire Slayer “Once More, With Feeling” Sing-Along. Bill, it was a blast!
The photo set will speak for itself:
…but I do want to point out that we got a goodie bag with instructions on things to do at specific parts of the episode – awesome. It was very Rocky-Horror-Picture-Show-esque. Everyone’s favourite was to shout out “shut up Dawn” every time she said *anything*, which made a great episode even better.
There were bubbles blown while Tara’s was, em, “spread beneath her willow tree”, mustard packets waved around when “they got the mustard out!” and an authentic Sunnydale parking tickets (we were all wearing underwear though. Well, I was). People were surprisingly in tune and every song got a great ovation.
Prizes for best costumes, most enthusiastic fans through the night and “Who wants to be a Slayer” trivia game really added up to the fun. Prizes included Buffy fanfic and skeletons, among others. They are doing this again on the 30th and as nerdy as it sounds doing this twice in a row, I’m seriously contemplating the possibility…
“Bunnies, bunnies it must be bunnies!…”
If this report made no sense to you, don’t fear. Get your Buffy on and catch up.
