I agree that we should do several things. Then people could choose what would be easier for them.

Anyone in the southern Texas area? Houston or Baytown, hopefully? Very Happy

I like the idea of printing the AW logo off, it would make things a lot easier lol. x] That, with the bracelet and sign/flag, I think we'll be pretty noticeable. :]

Also (this was mentioned in either a story or comment on the site, and I couldn't find it again) but, as I know that we have a few Death Eaters on here, who all of you would be up for singing Its Not Over Yet after DH2? xD Just a thought. :}

I went on Google Images and found a pic of the AW logo, so we have that. However, it's only 73x73, so that could be a potential problem. These are all such great ideas, and I'm even more excited for DH now. I'm pretty sure the singing of "It's Not Over Yet" was a story, fairly recently.

This is kind of off topic, but should someone post a story about this forum on AW? If it wasn't posted already of course.

I think the idea of bracelets and buttons are brilliant, and I really like the idea of flags. But, what I was worried about is that bracelets/pins would be hard to spot in the dark since it would be a midnight premiere. I was thinking of maybe color-cordinated glowsticks or perhaps glow-in-the-dark.

P.S. Any Wizarding families in the Miami, Florida area?

Well, in my area, we wait inside the mall (or theater) but I guess that depends where you're at.

True...

The closest movie theater in my area is in an outdoor mall/shopping center. So, unless we're inside, it would be a bit difficult to spot bracelets outside in the night. :/

But, glowsticks could work too though, even if most cinemas are inside. It would easier to spot than bracelets because they glow, so...

Luna, I really like the glowstick idea. It would be fantastic, and easy to spot. Very Happy Add that with the other stuff (bracelets, signs, etc) and we'll stick out like no one's business. Very Happy

Tonks, one, I love Tonks. Two, I found the forum itself through a story, though I don't think its been published. I could post another and see if that one gets through?

And as for the indoor/outdoor theater, all the theaters in my area are indoor. Again, South Western Ohio Very Happy

On the note of the AW logo, maybe if one of us can draw like Draco, maybe they could sketch the logo and give us the link? I know it certainly isn't me. My drawing skills are like Hermin's. -_-

That was a good point to bring up about movie theaters being dark. Maybe we should have a "code" of some sort? Just a thought, I don't know how well that would work. And yes, someone should draw the AW logo and post the link. That would work, because like I said before, the one I found is really tiny and would be a problem if we wanted to resize it.

The glowstick idea is brilliant. And yes, color coordinated would probably work best.

Ya, muggleborn_ maybe you should try and post a story, get more AWers aware of this forum. I found it from looking over the comments on that story about the DH premiere a little bit after it was posted, so maybe it was too late (by the time of the comment, most witches/wizards weren't paying attention to that story anymore?).

OmR, Dorky, I didn't know you started this. Very Happy You're totally awesome for that. I'll go ahead and submit a story. Maybe we should all do it? Sure, if they all get published it'll flood the pages with ads for this site, but more people will notice it, right?

affraid No reason for that, apart from the fact that it made me laugh. x] Anyway.

I've submitted the story. Cross your fingers it gets posted!

lol yea it was me Razz hopefully at least one of the stories will get posted.

I think the glowsticks could work added to the other stuff, at least that way if we can't find anyone before the movie if we see a glowstick during the movie we can find them after the movie.

Ya, the glowsticks is a great idea. And then hopefully if there are two or more AWers in the crowd they'll have seen each other and will be looking for one another. We should probably try to have uniform colors for the glowsticks.

I'm really happy this planning is months in advance, not like, November 6th or something.

I'll cross my fingers about the stories. I normally don't vote on submissions, but I'll keep my eyes out.

I've already started making a large button, painting it with AW on it in maroon (on either white or orange background)
They're really really easy to make out of soup can lids with a safety pin taped to the back, just paint them with acrylic paint (or glue paper on to it, whatever works.)
They're easy to spot, and if you do them bright enough (white or neon orange), easy enough to see even in a dark theatre. It's also not quite as awkward to glance at a badge someone's wearing then going around checking peoples wrists for bracelets.

Ok. So. Bracelets (AW colors/logo/username), flag/sign, pins, and glow sticks. I think we'll stick out pretty well. Very Happy

What color should we use for the glow sticks?

Also, EmotionalTeaspoon (if you're still reading this thread, I mean), do you have an account on MylifeisHP? Cause I saw one with your username. Thought I'd ask. ^^

Done the button! Looks pretty good if I do say so myself. Wink I decided on an orange background.

Sorry for the double post but I can't edit my other one... Sad
I can't say that I have skills like Draco's, but here's my interpretation of AW's logo (even though it's technically not the logo, but might be more recognizable)
If anybody has line-editing software or photoshop then they could "clean it up" a bit, by all means. It was done in MS Paint very quickly... Embarassed

I actually really like it. :] I mean, no one has mad skillz like Draco (said in Lucius's voice, of course Very Happy), but its a world better than I could do. So. :]

Hey, that AW looks great. I actually like how it's not perfect, it fits. So that could be our "pin" and we just all print it out and tape it on our shirts or something- or as birdpatr explained how to make pins. Simple, easy, and it's bright enough so it'll stand out on Hogwarts Robes, for those AWers going all out. colon right parentheses Smile

We have so many great ideas! Maybe we should have one mandatory one- I think the pins would work- and then if anyone feels like it, do the others. That way we'll be even more recognizable (glowsticks, bracelets, etc).

I agree. The pin should be mandatory, if nothing else, but should we have like, guidelines for the read of the stuff that people might want to do? I mean, for the bracelets we decided to do orange and maroon. But what about other stuff? Like the glow sticks, signs, etc.

Since we'll already have a pin with the AW logo, why don't the signs have one Harry Potter related quote we all like and/or agree on?

I like that idea. :]

But... since I know (like I said somewhere in here before lolz) that there are some Death Eaters among us, how about we have "Death Eaters/Dumbledore's Army" on the signs? Just a though. ^^

If not, what quote should we use? And should it be from any book, just DH (since that is the movie we'll be at, and all) or maybe AVPM/AVPS? We have a lotta quotes to sift through guys. o.o Not that I mind, of course. x]

Haha, the first thing that popped into my head when you suggested AVPM/AVPS was: "Red Vines: what the hell can't they do?"

Okay, so we have a lot of great ideas. I think the button/ printout idea will work. It won't interfere with costumes, yet it'll be more noticeable than bracelets. Although, I still want to make one. Smile

And don't worry, I live in a small town too, really small. I think theres 2,000 something people in mine. I'll be going somewhere else because we don't have a theater and the one closer is awful (sticky floors, bad seats, disgusting bathroom, all around awful)
