Tim Burton inspired Christmas cosplay party

It's not that often you get a Friday the 13th fall in the month of Christmas.. So lets "Decca the halls" and celebrate at Decca bar with an awesome theme night - Tim Burton inspired costumes! :-) 

If you like to just come along and be amazed at the decorations and crazy costumes you are welcome to attend in regular going out attire. Come and represent the Sci-Fi Fantasy Meetup group at the biggest meetup event of the year! This event will be across over 30 meetup groups and is set to be massive!! 

So many great characters to choose from! Just check out this list of Tim Burton movies:

Nightmare Before Christmas 
Edward Scissorhands 
Beetlejuice 
Alice in Wonderland 
Mars Attacks! 
Corpse Bride 
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 
Batman 
Batman Returns 
Planet of the Apes 
Frankenweenie 
Sleepy Hollow 
Hansel and Gretel 
And others if you want to do a bit of research!

Here are just some common questions we have been receiving about the event and the answers:

Can we bring friends?Of course all friends are welcome! We want you to feel comfortable and enjoy the night! :-)

Is there a dance floor?
Yes, there is a very decent sized dance floor.

Do I have to dress up?
No you don't, but perhaps wear something simple like a Santa hat to get into the spirit!There will some great costumes to admire, and fun prizes for the best dressed!

What type of music will be playing?
Between 7 and 10 just ambient background music so we can chat and meet people, and give credit to those who have gone all out with the costumes... It will still be noisy with chatter as we are getting close to capacity (in fact may get too many, so make sure you get down early) 

The DJ will be playing from later in the night (around 11) Music will be fun mixture of funky party tunes, and recent commercial... but not like at a wedding lol, a bit less main stream, but still music we all know and love.

A bit after midnight a percussionist will be playing alongside the DJ, party should be in full swing by then! It's an interactive show for 1 to 2 hours where he will invite people up on stage to join the performance!

Is there an entry fee?
In order to make this night as amazing as we can, yep, of course there is. Only $13 and you will get a free green slime jelly shot!

What else is going on?
We have hired a couple of projector screens and will be receiving snapchat pictures from your smart phones directly to the projector screens (uncensored ;-))This is a new concept, there has only been a handful of snapchat parties ever in the whole world!Search for "Snapchat" in your app store and install it so you are ready to join in!!

I was just down there today helping out with the decorations... It's going to look amazing!

    I probably won't get there but it sounds ... like something REALLY tricky to organise. Well done to all who pulled it off! How IS someone tracking the RSVPs at 35 Meetup groups? Just staying logged in (perhaps by mobile app) & if too many "Yes" you will tell the last ones "actually you missed out"?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
