A new scholarship for 2017 has been endowed through the efforts of our transgender mistresses of technology, Evelyn D.

The scholarship is need based and applications are open to anyone identifying as non-binary or transgender.

To apply or nominate a fellow fan email EscapadeEvelynScholarship@gmail.com with name and preferred pronouns of the potential recipient, the best way to contact them, an introduction, and one thing Escapade or slash fandom in general could do to improve visibility or awareness of gender non-conforming issues. The ideas will be shared with the fan community so be sure to let us know if you do not wish to be credited.

Please limit applications and nominations to those who would otherwise be unable to attend for financial reasons.

Please reblog, retweet, and otherwise help signal boost!

 Both [personal profile] xlorp and I are registered, hotel room booked. Airfare will have to wait until we can work out the family visit days.

 I used the AO3's Bookmark feature to create a playlist of the vids shown at Escapade 2016.  It was surprisingly easy.    I was happy to see how many vidders are taking advantage of A03 to create stable "homes" for the vids, with fandom info and warnings.  A few were only on Youtube or the vidder's website/LJ.

Vids appwar in random order: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Escapade2016VidShow

The following vids are still missing.
*Savoy Truffle by nakedBee
*Stolen Houses by Smutcutter
*Prove It On Me Blues by diannelemarc
*Help I'm Alive by Killa

If you know of links to these vids drop me a note.

We are ramping up for Escapade 26 and are working to finalize our contract with an LAX-adjacent hotel.

Dates: We are 95% certain that Escapade 26 will be held February 26-28, 2016 (with early check-in on the evening of the 25th). If you are already registered, and the final dates selected don’t work, let us know promptly and we will refund your membership or roll the full amount to 2017.

Hotel: TBD, but it will be on the LAX strip (Los Angeles, CA), with a free airport shuttle and available self-parking. We will post an update and hotel reservation link within the week.

Extended Discount: Because hotel negotiations are taking longer than expected, we are extending the discounted registration price of $110 through November 10th. Please take advantage of the discount and register now.

Website: We have re-worked the Escapade site to better support membership information, dealers, artists and vidders. The member information requires a login, which will allow you to view and update all your own information. If you have any questions, Ellie is available to assist you.  Her email is: ellie@escapadecon.net

Already registered for 2016? If you registered in person at last year’s convention (or volunteered), we have pre-registered you to the website and credited the appropriate amount toward your membership for Escapade 26. Go here to generate an email link & set your own password: http://ift.tt/1PcIXGn You can either enter the email you gave us last year, or your badge name (without any spaces). If you have any trouble getting logged in, Ellie will be happy to help. Her email is: ellie@escapadecon.net

From the convention organizer
"Escapade is in 9 days, 20 hours, and 20 minutes. I am--I'd say "unreasonably," but it's completely reasonable--excited about this, our 25th anniversary convention. 

http://www.escapadecon.net/ 

For regular attendees, much is familiar: same hotel, many familiar friends, hot topics with scintillating discussion, and a certain amount of kvetching because there isn't room on the schedule (or in a day or a weekend) for every panel topic we wanted to discuss. 

Some things will be different. We have more new people this year, and some old friends are joining us again. With 25 years behind us, we're celebrating how we got here. With 25 years before us (yes, we're up for 25 more), we're looking at ourselves and the world around us through different lenses, and we expect spirited and enthusiastic debate. 

We have a few spaces left. If you're on the fence, now is the time to take action. Wednesday, February 25 is the last day to get hotel rooms at the con rate. We look forward to seeing you. 

Please link/forward/share this post. Thank you."

If you've never been to a fan run convention and want to see what type of fan art/fan crafts are displayed and sold there, the Escapade art show is posting photos of 50 art pieces that were submitted to this year's art show. If you are on tumblr, you can subscribe to the escapadecon tumblr.

And if you are not on tumblr, just check back weekly here: http://escapadecon.tumblr.com/tagged/escapade-art-show and don't forget to scroll back for older entries

Among the items showcased so far...

Teen Wolf - a wolf and his boy
Despicable Me Minion hats (worn by the art show volunteers during the auction)
A dapper Pacific Rim portrait
A knitted Dalek
Thor and Loki linocut


morgandawn: (Good Day)
There is a (shudder) Burger King near the hotel. But really, why bother when an In and Out Burger is one mile away?  A bit too far to walk (for some), but the Big Blue Bus will take you there in 10 minutes. And if you have a car, it is only 3 minutes away.

North of the In and Out Burger on Sepulveda Blvd  is a CVS Pharmacy, a Trader Joes and a Ralphs grocery store. Parking for some of these stores is behind the stores on the Sepulveda Westway. Basically, if there is no parking lot in front, take the streets that will lead you to the back.

The nearest Starbucks
The nearest liquor store
The low cost shuttle to Manhatten Beach

If you want your food delivered to you, check out GrubHub.

As an aside the Big Blue Bus can also take you to Venice Beach (1hr) and the Santa Monica Pier (30 min).

From the Escapade mailing list:

"A few people have asked, so here it is: We are now offering Significant  Other memberships.

What is it, you ask? I'll tell you -- if you're registered and coming to Escapade, you can bring your possibly less fannish S.O. for a mere  $65.00. Your S.O. will be welcomed at the Welcome Party, the Vid Show, the Art Show and Auction, the Sunday morning breakfast, the con suite, the dealer's room... Basically, they're welcome to all areas of the con except for panel discussions."

Escapade is one a fan run slash convention held each year in Southern California. This year it will be held near LAX for easier access for those flying is. More here.

The LAX hotels run a private shuttle to Manhattan Beach (and other restaurants/shopping malls). The Ocean Express. Details here. And a flight attendant review of the bus is here.

Even more amusing is that someone took the time to post photos of the liquor store (all 15 of them) Sample below. More here.

Because you never know when the fate of the world depends on finding the nearest Starbucks.  (Escapade hotel is on the corner of Airport Boulevard and W 98th Street)
