I just watched a hilarious "TED Talks" video where part of the talk was about the attributes of a Trickster.

And I realized that they could be talking about the Doctor. Now, I always knew the Doctor was a trickster figure, like Coyote in Native American mythology, or the Greek hero who stole fire from the gods.

But by actually listing out the attributes of a Trickster, it made me realize that it is when the Doctor is being a trickster that I love him so much, and when he deviates from those qualities that I don't like it as much.

The video is called - "Emily Levine: A theory of Everything" and the part about the trickster attributes starts at 13:28 (she got it from a book called "Trickster Makes This World" by Lewis Hyde").

So here are the Attributes of a Trickster: (Read More...)

make it a good one, a fanmix for the Eleventh Doctor, for whizzing about, for running and remembering, for getting fired at planets and expected to fix them, and for never ever using the blue boringers. [listen @ 8tracks]

TimeGate is a Doctor Who 'verse and British Media con taking place in Atlanta, GA, USA, the weekend of May 22-24, 2015. Guests of Honor are Michelle Gomez (Missy) and Katy Manning (Jo Grant), along with many other guests. Please see the website for more info:

TimeGate has moved to a new hotel, the Marriott Century Center. The Wardrobe Portal will be in DeKalb I.

Currently, as Director of the TG costuming/cosplay track, I'm looking for a few more panelists for these panels:

Friday night

7 PM New Who Cosplay -- one or two more panelist(s)

10 PM Who Knits -- two to four knitters needed -- if you are knitting the 4th Doctor's scarf (whichever variation), have a clever pattern for Tardis mittens, or you've created tiny dolls of the Doctors, anything knitted, tatted, etc., Who 'verse, bring it along!


10 AM Torchwood -- two more panelists needed

3 PM The Doctor's Wardrobe: The Third Doctor -- two more 3rd Doctors welcomed (femme Doctors, of course, are fine!) and/or anyone well-versed in his many costumes. Classic Era UNIT personnel, and any Dr. Liz Shaws, Jo Grants, and SJS (in Season 11 attire only) in the audience might be called upon to show off their costumes. :)


10 AM Missy and Her Elegant Wardrobe -- two more Missys needed

4 PM Cosplay/Costuming 101 -- the topics are how to determine what character you might want to cosplay as, where to locate costume resources, and whether to cosplay or just costume. Two or three panelists needed.


If you've been on one of the TG costume track panels before and haven't heard from me, please PM or email me at acciochocolate at livejounal dot com right away. (I'm having computer issues and have lost some contact info.) If you are a member of the Prydon Academy, check your PMs there as well. Also, I'll be sending LJ PMs, and emails as I can. Of course, I'm always looking for new panelists, esp. if you've done Who-verse costume panel(s) at other cons. :) See contact info above.

My rules for panelists are easy common sense. :) Please be on time, be kind to other panelists, and answer politely when taking questions from audience members. Panels end at 10 minutes before the hour, as the Wardrobe Portal shares space with the lit track. If an attendee comes up to the table afterwards to ask questions of you, please be kind but have them walk with you out to the hallway for more chatting ASAP.

Please forgive the lateness of these requests, due to laptop woes, but I do need firm commitments by April 30 for any of these panels. I can *add* panelists after that, but your name won't be in the TG program book or on the TG program site.

Thanks again and see you at TimeGate this year!
