  1. (5) and (6) — Amanda’s last name is “Wakaruk.”

    Thanks for sharing the photos! The Masquerade participants and Hugo-shortlisted authors were all great to work with.

  2. Tower of Light: They had that on display at MidAmericon too.

    5) Wow, check out Seanan’s fabulous outfit! For some reason it’s making me think of her character Dianda from the Toby Daye books.

    first half hour seems to be a slideshow, random order, of various program items – many repeating – and NO captions, so not really fun.

  4. Martha’s pictures of the dancing robots are better than mine so I’m going to snag them (just for my own use). Her “I can’t tell you how cool this party was, I’d never been to anything like it” expresses it all.

    I missed the masquerade so that’s a very helpful link.

    (8) She didn’t get my tiara on film/pixels. To be fair, neither did I. 🙁 Everybody was wearing tiaras, independently of each other. Except Rebecca Roanhorse, who won one and was wearing it at the party.

    (15) hee!

    @PJ: I believe that’s what was running on the big screens as everyone was seated and the video person just started it there instead of at the ceremony. So you too can experience the thrill of sitting and watching slides. Or you could skip ahead to the actual show, in which many Filers play the part of Sir Not Appearing In This Film.

  5. PJ — yup, they started the live stream a half hour early. Smart — make sure it actually streams and doesn’t cut off the first part of the ceremony.
