    I gotta come up with a great Hufflepuff costume, I'm thinking Japanese Schoolgirl style. Suddenly it looks like a great thing my brother got me a wicked cool Hufflepuff pin.
    I can't find a pic small enough to link, but here is a link to a site that sells the set of all the pins.
    I got the pin a year or two before the movies came out, and it's lived on my purse/messenger bag ever since.

    There used to be a great web page that had detailed info on how to build a Harry Potter style outfit for about $50. Sadly, mainstream has hit and I can't find the link since it's buried under dozens of "professional" made-in-china costume kits.

    We made ours from clothing and other items we purchased at Goodwill. The hardest part was the robe, which were made from a couple of bedsheets (also from Goodwill) and a bottle of gold and a bottle of black RIT dye, plus about 6 hours in front of a sewing machine.

    We did buy the ties new from eBay for $10 each.
    haha, thanks. I was aiming for something much simpler. I already have two cosplay outfits i"m bringing. This is just gonna be a throw together hufflepuff-ish nod of an outfit. Thanks though for the ideas!

    Ok, can anyone explain this better to me?

    What's the point? What would I do?

    Muggle-Terms: When your portion of the house meets another portion of a different house, you do what is called a wizard's duel. There will be scorecards that you will receive to explain what the duel is (ie buying a beer and shot of choice, make opponent drink.) It is easier to choose your opponent PRIOR to entering the bar and have your money/choice of liquor at the ready. Each bar has different duels and different portion of houses to compete against.

    TL;DR - The true point is to get drunk (if desired or to know your limit) and have fun with friends, both old and new.

    Some houses will also be doing auctions with gifts of Harry Potter related or alcohol paraphernalia related (mainly shot-glasses) with ALL proceeds going to Child's Play.

    So, do the houses have their, um, whatcha-ma-call-ems? Tributes? Champions? Some that do the majority of the drinking for the house points?

    Nope, the drinking portion of the evening is scored on an entirely individual basis - the house system is in place less as a 'teams' sort of deal as it is simply to help make managing 100 drunk (in some cases VERY drunk) witches and wizards a little bit easier. Though as CaptainTadpole mentioned, there are also some auctions, and donations accepted for CP, and the house/side that raises the most over the course of the evening gets special recognition for that.
    Wrong series.

    Well, 'champions' would be the right series, though it would have been last year. (Also, now I've got ideas running through my head for a Hunger Games-themed crawl. xD)

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    The best analogy for house points would be donations to child's play. That's how the night is scored, and how the triwizard cup is awarded.

    A hunger games theme would be awesome, but part of the fun with the current theme is having dozens of costumed wizards/witches traipsing through the U-district. Watching the faces of people in resteraunts and shoppes as we all walk by in full robes and uniforms definitely makes up for the effort it took to assemble the outfits!

    Oh, I'm not even close to suggesting ~replacing~ the TWDT with a Hunger Games themed pub crawl. Never would. But there can never be too many pub crawls, and it intrigues me as a possible theme for a new one. =)

    Hey Ravenclaw OotPs! (Even though you don't know who you are yet.) I've got some news. I am stepping back to head girl this year and giving Skarsol a chance to lead. Why, you ask? Because I want to keep leadership fresh. I don't want to re-use the same tired ideas and I certainly don't want our portion of the crawl to be the same, year after year. Ravenclaw needs new ideas and new energy. So please welcome Skarsol as our HoH and our two new additions to leadership, Wormdundee and Zerzhul, who will be sharing the position of head boy. I am really looking forward to this year.

    Once registration opens and you find yourself on Ravenclaw OotP, if you have anything to donate to our yearly auction or have any ideas on how to make this the best year yet for us, please pm one of us.

    See you soon!!

    CA CAAWW!!

    Last year the first challenge was "take a light/dark beer/shot for ever year, plus this one, of the TWDT you've done". There might've been other light/dark challenges, but all I remember was the 4 shots of peach schnapps to start the night. *shudder*

    Is it PAX <insert nearest future PAX here> yet?

    And just to get more into the theme, I've added a makeshift wand holster to the Foreigner Belt.

    I thought of doing something like that. I'm aiming for Hufflepuff too. I found a wicked cool top last night. But You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a short pleated/school girl skirt!

    That event is sold out, but I'm sure Lexi will still be glad to hand you the list for you to check those breweries out on your own time.

    Question, I have three more people in my group. Only one wants to participate on a team with me while the other two just want to have some drinks and hang with PAX people. Is it cool for the other two to not be registered but just come along with a group to chill or is registration a must?

    Also, hello! I am not new to the forums just this event (finally 21!!) I hope to join the OotP Ravenclaw bunch :) I have had a full Ravenclaw uniform for years now and really hope I get that team lol.

    Registration is a must, because the group sizes need to be kept down so that people can actually get into the bars and order drinks. If a 50 person group suddenly has 10+ extra people attached to it, somebody's probably getting screwed out of drinking.

    PAX may need to get bigger because there's now too much fun stuff to do before the damn thing even starts. I have been forced to choose between this and the Kris and Scott Live Dinner/Show, and I chose Kris and Scott. I may have to start alternating what community stuff I do at PAX each year.

    Yup, sold out, but the OP on the beer crawl has a great list with website links to all sorts of local breweries. If you scroll down to the Tour Stops you'll see them.

    There's also the issue of bar fire codes. Too many people just tagging along for funsies can cause the bar to go over its maximum occupancy.

    Not really at the challenge bars (and they're packed to the gills anyway), but at the starting bar and the ending bar where it's just your house hanging out there's a decent amount of goof off time.
