News from the Wireless

Hello fellow Miss Fisher fans!

It’s only been a month since our last newsletter, but it seems like more because we have so much to tell you! I’ll jump right in, shall I?

Update on con registration

We opened registration for Miss Fisher Con 2019 to members of the Adventuresses’ Club of the Americas exactly one month ago today, and we are thrilled to announce that we’ve already hit the halfway point in our total number of registrations! If there are any spaces remaining, we’ll open registration to the general public on January 1, 2019 (members will still get special pricing) - but it’s not too late to become a member and get yours before they’re gone!

Session submissions are open

Do you want to present a session at Miss Fisher Con 2019? We want to hear from you! In past years, our sessions have covered such things as the evolution of fashion, fanfiction, Egyptomania in the 1920s, period food and drink, codebreaking, and lockpicking, just to name a few. This fandom is amazingly diverse, and we can’t wait to see what kinds of topics come up for this year. Our deadline for session submissions is February 1, 2019, so don’t delay - submit your session idea today!

History of Luna Park, anyone? I’d really like to know why the creepy clown face is a thing (though these Adventuresses are lovely!)
The Westin is no Wardlow, but we’re ready to make do!

We’re accepting vendor applications

Like Phryne, we all love to buy beautiful things, and Miss Fisher Con is a great place to show off your wares! If you’d like to be a vendor at Miss Fisher Con 2019, please fill out the application and let’s get the process started. All applications are due no later than December 31, 2018; we’ll notify applicants of their status by mid-January. If you have any questions, please email our vendor coordinator, Jennifer.

The Westin has added online booking 

Miss Fisher Con 2019 will be held at the Westin San Jose, from July 25-27, 2019. If you’re planning to attend, you can now book your room online (you can still call, if you prefer: 1-855-811-0227). We have a block of rooms, so let them know you’re with Miss Fisher Con 2019 to get the event room rate - 65% off the regular price!

Adventuresses at large: Moviemaking and other madcap exploits in Melbourne

This month, we bring you a new feature - two of our Adventuresses, Jen and Marti, were recently in Melbourne, and they’ve given us a little glimpse into their adventure.

We left California with autumn in full swing and arrived in Melbourne to a blooming Spring. We had two weeks jam-packed with activities, photos, and (for the times we couldn’t photograph, because non-disclosure agreements) memories. We saw all the important Miss Fisher sites, including the hallways of Abbotsford Convent and the Brighton Bathing Boxes, and we even had tea at the Windsor. We took a ride (or two or three) on the Great Scenic Railway and visited the mothership, Wardlow. We met up with fellow Adventuresses who are now old friends and met new friends we hope to see at a Miss Fisher Con in the future.

Brighton bathing boxes - Rose, are you in there?

Look familiar? We’re barracking for Abbotsford and watching carefully in case our two favorite detectives show up to take in a game.

But our real reason for being there? We got to be extras in Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears! There were about 40 of us there from around the world, all there to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. They gave us the VIP treatment, including make-up and hair as well as beautiful costumes to wear. (See if you can find us in the official Instagram photos!) The cast and crew were lovely throughout the long filming day (14-plus hours!) and happy to have us there. We wanted to soak up every ounce of the experience - we knew we’d be living off it for months (who are we kidding? Years!) to come.
Come to the con and we will be happy to tell you all of our “when in Melbourne” stories. Well… the ones we can tell at least. Just to whet your appetite, all of the photos in this newsletter are from our trip - hope you enjoy them!
Have you gone to Australia, flown in a Tiger Moth, ridden in a Hispano-Suiza, or done some other Phryne-esque adventure? We’d love to share stories from others in the fandom! Contact us to tell yours! 

Oh, and lest we forget, have you seen the trailer for Miss Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries yet? Even though this show won’t be the same, I have faith that it’ll do Phryne proud.
