Greetings from your friendly local Firefly fans! I'm Louise, and I'll be one of your hostesses for the biggest SiliCon event to date. The Browncoats have teamed up with SiliCon, and we're going to have a ball!
The Annual SiliCon Masquerade Ball will be held Saturday, October 6th at the San Jose Doubletree, and SiliCon is launching their first annual ball with a Joss Whedon themed costume dance.
That's right - this Masquerade will revolve around all things Whedon - the worlds of Buffy and Angel, the Firefly/Serenity 'verse, the Astonishing X-Men, Runaways... heck, you can come as Buzz Lightyear or any other costume/formal wear if you're so inclined. (Actually, you can even come in jeans and a t-shirt, but more people will dance with you if you dress up!). We're not picky.
In keeping with the coming together of worlds, we will be including both period waltz and modern dance music - so whether you're a Fezziwigger or more comfortable at Pop Roxx, there'll be something for you! Everyone is welcome, and costumes and formal wear are encouraged, but not required.
Expect the unexpected from SiliCon and the Browncoats for this dance, as it promises to be an event unlike any other. To ensure that everyone has a good time, we will have lessons in period waltz, and a dance partner auction (proceeds to benefit Joss' favorite charity, Equality Now) to make sure you have somebody to dance with. There will also be a crowning of a King and Queen, and of course, some surprises. We're thrilled to be hosting this event and hope to see you at the Ball!
