Avenger's Ball/Shindig

Has anybody heard about the Avenger's ball or the Firefly Shindig? Trying to decide a outfit to bring but not sure which is happening.

Avengers's Ball is happening for sure:

And since Whedonverse is hosting it, I doubt there'll be a Shindig. Also, it's not on their preliminary schedule:

Yes, the new Avengers Ball has replaced the Shindig this year. The Whedon Universe staff felt that it was time to try something new to keep the track fresh. I've got more information about the Ball and the WU track in general in the Whedon Universe thread.

I'll have my backdrop set up at the Avengers Ball and I'll be taking pictures like I did at last year's Shindig. And don't worry if you don't have an Avengers-related costume: I'll be happy to take pictures of anybody who's interested, even in regular street clothes!

Winter's Cosplay, feel free to bring any costume you like, but expect that most people will be wearing something related to Joss Whedon - Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, The Avengers, Cabin in the Woods, Much Ado About Nothing, and anything else Joss has been involved with.

Will we be able to get a group photo with the backdrop as well? I'll be part of a cosplay group attending the Avenger's Ball and it would be awesome if we could get a shot of us together.

Absolutely! I'm looking forward to seeing your costumes!

Thank you for answering my question, sad to hear that the Shindig will not be happening but I can understand that you gotta keep the track with the current trends. I look forward to the Avenger's Ball in my Iron (Wo)Man themed Cocktail dress, so hopefully my bf can get his Captain America themed outfit together in time and we can get a photo. See everyone there!

In the past, all of the Dragon Con official track events (Shindig, Yule Ball, etc) have been free. I don't think they've changed the policy this year, so it should be no charge to enter.

@Kibalover100 Yes, TheFontBandit is right, the Avenger's Ball is one of the events for the Whedon Universe track, so it is included for free with your Dragon*Con badge. However, in past years large parties such as the Shindig or YA Yule Ball have had a cash bar, so if you want a drink there would be a charge for that. But it's free to come in and dance and hang out with other Whedon fans.

@threestories Can't wait to see your costumes! You had a great Inara dress last year, so I know you'll have something amazing for 2013!

(It's the Ravenclaw from the Browncoats Redemption wrap two years ago.)

Don't worry, I remember you, wabbit! That was such a fun party! How have you been?

You've got a great list of costumes there. I hope to run into you again this year!

Figured as much, but you know how it is. And yes, that was a *great* shindig!

I'm sure I'll see you around again. I'm not sure what all I'm taking this year, but two new ones are coming out to play and Hit-Girl is coming out of the wayback machine.

scifigeek47, you mentioned a cash bar at the Shindig in the past years. Is the Westin as stringent about policing people from bringing their own drinks into the ball room as the Sheraton is? I've had door guards in the Sheraton make me dump out my water from my container before. Granted, it held an alcoholic drink earlier, but didn't at that time.
