I just wanted to say thank you to everybody involved in planning, organizing, and attending the event this Saturday. Everything seemed to go incredibly smoothly and you all did a terrific job!

While my friends and I have gone to several different events and conventions together, this was our first time seeing a movie in a theater with 600 other rabid fans... we all agreed that it was definitely a different experience, and one we're glad we got to be a part of. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity.

   From the Hufflepuff with the braids who was with the Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Gryffindor.

Heidi, you told me that you would send me a refund if you were able to sell my two extra tickets. So what's going down with that?

THAT was a blast! :)

I had such a wonderful time. (You might remember me as the brunette slytherin in the ponytail with excessive eyemakeup. I was traveling with 2 gryffindors and a ravenclaw and was the only one in robes.)

But it was so great to go there and feel like I fit in. Thankyou for everyone that took our pictures, it really made me feel special. :)

On our way back to the train station (we live on long island), some boys yelled "HOGWARTS SUCKS" at us and my dear friend Elise said, "They must be from Beauxbatons..." lol...

Then in Fridays, in the bathroom there was this lady smoking (who shouldn'tve been) and she said, "Y'all go to that magic school?" and I was like "Yes." and she was like "For real?" and I was like "Yes" but then Elise said "no" and ruined my life! (lol jk my life in in tact)

You all looked FABULOUS. We have such a good-looking fandom...

Especially me.

Love From,
May

Ah! I am still all giddy, what a blast! :D This really was one of the best things I've ever done, watching the movie with other fans just made it a billion times better. Plus, everyone looked so fantastic - my favorite was possibly the girl dressed as a Mary Sue, that cracked me up!!!

I have one rather amusing story to tell. While standing on 42nd Street waiting for my sister who was taking forever to get out of the damn car, I saw a woman who I could have SWORN was dressed as Professor Trelawney. So I said to her, "I love your costume! Yay!" and she just looked at me like I was crazy. Um... I guess she wasn't dressed as Trelawney after all... oh boy -_-;

I really had tons of fun. I wish I had dressed up so I could say "hey I was the one with ___!" but... I just wore my usual clothes. You may be able to recognize me, however, by my terrible botched dye job done at 6 AM the day of the show... haha.

Firstly, yesturday was AMAZING! A huge thanks to all of the people who planned the event. You guys rock! :D

Secondly, I was wondering where everyone will be posting the pictures they took at the theater. My friends and I got stopped a good 20 times on our way to the back of the line, and we wanted to see how the pictures of us came out. (We were a group of teens: two Gryffindor, one Slytherin with robes, and a Ravenclaw.)

I know a lot of other people got their pics taken, and it would be awesome if the photographers could comment with a link to where they are posting the pictures.

Thanks! :D

I had a lovely time at the Imax, and I thank heidi and the leaky cauldron for making this event happen! I have loads of pictures and I'll post them all later. I was a ravenclaw with short hair (up to my ears) and I was traveling with a broomstick (a party city nimbus 2000). I loved all the wonderful costumes and even a hat or house scarf showed your devotion to the fandom. I was really happy to see that a lot of people dressed up and I met a slew of wonderful people. Thank you so much everyone!

The movie overall was wonderful but I was a little disappointed at the fact that they didn't go in sequence (the firebolt at the end? c'mon!) and also they didn't go into the maruder's crew as I hoped they would. I really enjoyed the movie though (and all it's slashy references :wink wink). Btw, did anyone get a picture of the girl who had the top "Something slashy this way comes"?

I would just like to say that I love you all to death.

So much fun today! Hopefully I'll have pictures soon. If anyone saw me, I was the girl in the green cloak, waistcoat, Ravenclaw tie. Oh, and I was with Colin Creevey, James Potter, Lily Evans, Gryffindor Student #34, A Severely Messed-Up Harry Potter, My Sister Who Was Wearing The Same Thing That I Was But Hufflepuffly, and...you may have seen her, the girl wearing this shirtCollapse ). Those of you in costume, I salute you!

I swear, any of the weird looks that we may have gotten at Penn and on the subway were TOTALLY worth it after, once we passed Barnes and Noble, people started clapping and cheering. If any of you were in that group, you made us so so happy. Yes we are geeks, but we are so proud!

I think I might have seen meshell_mybell, but we were too shy to approach you! Our Colin was randomly saying "LiveJournal. LiveJournal." in hopes that someone would respond (we so sad), but alas, it wasn't to be.

And the movie, well. Adoration, adoration, adoration, lupinmaybeapedophilebutihearthimsomuchandheandsiriusaretehgay! There is nothing better than being in a theatre with 600 other obsessed fans who go wild every time there is the slightest bit of sexual tension! I was sitting next Severely Messed-Up Harry Potter, and after a while, he just leaned over to me and said "Man, I love this director!" Oh, he's so shippy and he doesn't even know it yet! I don't care if everything "wasn't canon" because that's not going to kill the movie for me. Sure, I would have liked certain things to have been included, but what matters to me is that it was a good movie, not just a slavishly faithful flip-book.

Long Island Harry Potter geeks represen', yo! Weeerrrrrd

I had a great time watching the movie- but if we do this again, may I make a suggestion? Maybe have more snack stands for those of us who paid for them in advance? Because it really took up a long time to wait in that line, and by the time I got there the previews were on and THERE WERE NO MORE SNACKS (I knew it was too cheap to be true!). It was so late that one of the three of us that had come together couldn't even sit by us.

Or, maybe you could have given the people who got shafted on our pre-paid snacks the patches or posters instead of doing the raffle. That I wouldn't mind *at all*. ;)
