Join us for the first ever Doctor Who Tumblr Meetup 2:00-4:00pm, Saturday July 14 at BASIC in San Diego, CA!
So we’ve been excitedly planning this behind everyone’s backs for a while now…
… we’re just glad we can finally start making things public.
We’ve teased this a bit before and started a contest to have a Whovian design the official meetup art. Now we get to say that this meetup is really for real(!)
Three things to note:
We’re so feelingallthefeelings.gif that we get to finally meet the Tumblr Whovian community in person(!) If you have any questions, message us! We’re going to put together a quick FAQ for when we release the RSVP so anything we can answer now would be a help to everyone.
The RSVP link is COMING SOON. We just wanted to get the time and date out there as soon as possible for anyone needing to plan their day.
More to come soon so hold tight!
btw if you’ve never seen a Tumblr ‘pin’ before, it puts the post at the top of your dashboard. To remove the post, click the pin.
We’re hard at work getting things ready for the Doctor Who Tumblr Meetup at San Diego Comic-Con! (official announcement coming soon.)
Just a reminder that we will NOT be holding this at the San Diego Convention Center. This way EVERYBODY can attend whether they have a ticket for SDCC or not.
Also: it will be all ages. Also: we’re coming up with lots of interesting things to do. Also: there will be punch and pie (or something punch-like and something pie-like.)
Also: there’s a contest to design the art for the Doctor Who Meetup! It’ll be featured (with your tumblr blog’s name) on every invite and every giveaway. You can enter even if you can’t attend the meetup. We’ll say good things about you in your absence. It’ll be like that scene in Vincent and The Doctor.
Also: this will be an official Tumblr meetup which makes us SUUUUPER excited as the Tumblr staff really appreciates us Whovians. We’ve been wanting to do something with them for a while. (They’re co-sponsoring along with BBC America.) No word on whether TommyPom, the official Tumblr Pomeranian is going to show up, tho.
And that’s it for now. More to come soon.
WE’RE VERY EXCITED!!!!!
Since we have yet to meet a single Whovian who isn’t talented…
Come up with your best design. Post it to your blog. Tag it ‘behold my whovian masterpiece’. On next Friday, June 29th we will pick one winner who’s art will appear on the invitation and giveaways for the meetup!
And just to be clear, we’re not being lazy. We were going to try to make this ourselves, but then we tried to draw Rory Williams and it came out looking like this:
And our friends looked at us like this:
And that’s when we realized that you’re the creative ones!
We’ve been reblogging your fanart and gifs and everything so… YOU SHOULD TOTALLY COME UP WITH THE ART FOR THE DOCTOR WHO TUMBLR MEETUP INVITES AND TOTE BAGS!!!
So do this.
Deadline will be next Friday June 29th!
Tickets and RSVPing will be open soon.
You will not need a SDCC ticket to attend. It will be all ages.
It will be sponsored by BBC America and Tumblr.
There will be things to do. Special things.
While we can’t announce anything specific yet, it will be very special.
This is just to gauge interest. The party would be for you, Tumblr Whovians, so we’d only throw it if you think you could make it.
While there are no plans as of yet, we’d probably hold it outside of the convention center (so that everybody could come regardless of ticket) and it would probably be all ages.
We’d all get a chance to meet one another. And we’d definitely create something together that would go up on all of our tumblrs. And there’d be punch and pie*.
* ‘punch and pie’ not guaranteed to be actual punch or pie.
