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!
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.
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.
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.
