Yep, I left the Pacific Cinematheque just past midnight, happy, but hoarse! Not from the singing, but from all the screaming and hollering throughout both “Hush” and “Once more, with feeling”! See the goodie bag:
We got bubbles for Tara’s song, “Under your spell”, and the plastic fangs were for Spike’s song, “Rest In Peace” — instructions were to wear the fangs while singing. The lighters were originally for the big “Walk through the fire” group sing, but the organizer found out at the last minute that we weren’t allowed to use lighters in the theatre — the sprinkler system is very sensitive and so we had to use our cell phones instead.
I thought I was a big Joss Whedon fan, but _wow_, I am not as hardcore as these guys… the Vancouver Firefly/Serenity Meetup group. We sat in the middle of the theatre, surrounded by these fans — two of the girls did an amazing job with their makeup and came dressed as seriously bumpy vampires.
