jane_dennis: Nippon Shirts mail orders

We've shipped about 2/3rds of our NA orders as of this evening.

AFAIK, everyone from the EU or Japan was told their mail orders wouldn't happen until October.

That is still the case.

And I will get the con shirt pix up just as soon as I can.

the_magician: Photos ...

... I have many hundreds of photos to sort through ... but in the meantime I've grabbed some photos from the first couple of days of the convention, sorted out two themes ("fans" and "costumes") and posted them up on Facebook

Please feel free to ask me to remove or obfuscate any images of you, and to comments either clarifying (or correcting) what I've written or just adding commentary of your own.

As always, these photos may be incorporated in my jets2007 trip report, and any commentary/corrections to the photos may be used in the trip report (possibly without credit), just so you know ... :-)

kevin_standlee: Worldcon Chairs Photo Shoot Video

When I first posted this on September 3, I accidentally posted it to nippon07tourism and only tonight noticed that it was in the wrong community.

At the Worldcon Chairs Photo Shoot, we shot a short video of the chairs saying their names and their conventions, to aid in identifying them.

darth_gofer: Color ?

You may notice something different about the Nippon web site.

Yes, after a year and a half, we finally found the color version of the 'Tea Lady' graphic in the upper left corner. Click it to get the big picture.

Thanks to Scott and Jane Dennis.

darth_gofer: Nippon web site still active

Hi all. I'm back from the post-con typhoon tour, so Nippon2007.us is operating with a full complement for such business as remains to be done. (Wading through three weeks of back email is first on the list.)

We still have the official records (balance sheet, award winners, etc.) to post, as well as the final membership lists, some Spanish translations, and links to the many blogs and photo galleries we're all putting on line. Send links to webmaster@nippon2007.us if you'd like them listed somewhere on the site.

We're still monitoring LJ, so anything unresolved we can help with, post as usual.

And Arigato Gozaimasu to Inoue-san, Peggy Rae-san, and everyone else who made this Worldcon work so well!

hastings1066: Art show sales

Has anyone gotten notification from the person that was going to crate back Art Show printshop pieces to the US and then ship them to individuals? I lost the piece of paper with the contact info, so I can't follow up from my side (so if anyone has that as well, that would be fabulous *)
