Welcome to the AFA Awards Ceremony 2011!!!!

The event will be kicking off here on this forum in less than 24 hours time now! :2party:

I know it's been a long wait, but we're here now and it's almost time to see those shiny awards and find out who our winners are!!!

This little thread is for the pre-ceremony fun, and for those who can't make it to check in and say a little hi and 'have fun' to those who will be here!

Sooooooo....... how about those AFA outfits? Are they sitting in your closets somewhere getting dusty from the delays, or will you making a last minute dash to PS to grab one?

*huggles!*

OY! I've been struggling to put together some outfits for the AFA's since January and NOTHING has been working! I really need to get a move on! I feel so...unprepared. :p BUT I WILL HAVE SOMETHING! Or else I'll make the ultimate fashion statement and arrive naked.

No matter what, heads WILL turn...

EXCITED THAT THE DATE IS SET AND WE'LL GET TO SEE THE PRETTIES AND PARTY! *deep breath* That being said, I kind of planned some stuff tomorrow but I'll be in afterwards!!!! :D

Cripes! I need to make a "dress!"

Edit: I'm a foolish fool - I didn't even check to see what TIME it starts! I'll be at work. :lol: But I'll be near a computer - just probably not on it since we'll have a client in - but I'll pop in. Never say I don't do things because I'm blonde. Dirty blonde, whatever. :p

I'm on ep 2x05 of The West Wing. SJ! Of course, I haven't watched an ep in like a month. :doh:

I hope everyone has a great time! Really wish I could be there! I know a few of you will be around when I get back home but it's not really the same. No need to bother with an outfit. Just gonna wear my pajamas, aka what I am wearing now. :xd

ETA: Cause yeah, I will be home about 8 hours after the red carpet begins. :( In other words, I'll miss the whole damn thing. Oh well! Here's to next year! :drinking:

I have to ask, about the banner/outfits... can anyone show me an example of what one should look like ( 'cause like real life I worry about wearing the wrong thing. :lol: )

whatever you want! some people choose their fave celeb and use pics of them in fancy dresses and whatnot. I mean, last year, I used Robin Sparkles from How I Met Your Mother! :p

It's just something made especially for the AFAs. Many of us put some text on their about the AFAs too. Trust me, wear what you want!

I've just started season 4! I got hooked on it last summer and watched seasons 1-2 really quickly (I'd borrowed a friend's DVDs) and then bought the full s1-7 box set thing, but life happened and lots of new TV series etc, and I completely forgot about it. I just started watching again recently and am onto s4 now, :D Can't believe I forgot about it, I feel ashamed.

It's really good but I have to be ina certain mindset to watch, which is unfortunate. Cause I haven't felt like watching lately. Just finished all 4 seasons of Greek and am now on season 2 of Breaking Bad. :D

As for the 1st place first...doesn't bother me what way you do it. I like to look at them all anyway so the order is of no consequence. :)

Kiera
24-06-11, 01:50 AM
Same here. I probably wouldn't know the difference anyway, not being here in past years ;)

However, judging by the times in the email I got, it looks like I'm gonna miss a good bit of the ceremony. It starts at 2p, US time right? Brain's not wanting to convert military time. I don't get off work til 6 though :(

You look great Kiera! I love that font you did "rock out" in. I think the thing starts at 3pm Eastern. I'm a bit confuzzled myself. I'm trying to decide if I should try to go tbed early and get things done early tomorrow morning. Or stay up late and finish my outfit.

Such tough decisions! :lol:

Just done some statistics......this year between categories 1-28 (i.e. NOT including best artist or best wallpaper) there will be: 497 AWARDS to be given out, *jaw drops*

If you include Best artist and Best wall that takes us to...555 AWARDS TOTAL

Gees what a number to land on! 555... at least it wasn't 666 :err:

I'm sorry. I'm tired and hating Photoshop. I will have the lamest outfit for tomorrow, I'm sure, but whatever. I WILL HAVE FUN ANYWAY! I might try something now just to see if I can make something work but, if not, then I'll throw something together before the event.

It starts at 3pm EST, right? The red carpet? And the actual even will start....at 5pm EST?

I HAVE MY FIRST BANNER MADE! It's a Lady Gaga one and I love it except for the fugly text but I don't care about that part because I can NEVER do text so I just do the very basics and BAM! Yeah. Now I wanna make two more banners: a date banner (featuring at least two actors who will be my dates for the red carpet and at least a part of a ceremony, I'm sure) and an evening gown (for the actual ceremony and I dunno who will be on it). I MIGHT try to squeeze a party dress out of my muse but I can't make no promises.

Will you miss the whole thing? I feel like this is a ridiculously STOOPID question since I'm 99% sure you already answered it but I'm going to bed in a couple minutes so I require that you repeat yourself instead of making me look for your answer which I'm 99% sure is "yes." :(

SUPER EXCITED!!! And kinda bumming that I won't be able to make the event. Leaving tomorrow for the beach, and will probably be on the road when the ceremony starts, or just reaching our vacation trailer. Either way I'll be with you all in spirit. I'll try and check in on my phone when I can, but probably won't be commenting much till I get back home to my computer on Sunday.

Since I'll only be peeking in and won't be as involved this year, I have these extra banner sets if anyone is lacking inspiration and wants to use them for a last minute outfit.

Free Outfits:

I made these back when I was doing my Firefly rewatch. The first is for the ceremony itself, the second is for a change of outfit to party in the after party. First come, first serve. Credit in your signature would be nice. :)

Haha, well I've been busy settling into Uni for the past 10 months... Sadly I don't think I'll make the ceremony much this eve. Like Dana I'll be celebrating Midsummer and to put another damper on it I have work tomorrow so I need to catch some sleep :( I'll try to stop by sometime around midnight though!

(Also, I know my outfit for the occasion is the same as last but I figures that vintage is fashion so...:xd)

It's a big 3-4 day biker ralley they hold in Johnstown every year. Not just for bikers, but that's mainly the crowd you'll see. It's probably the biggest and only thing people look forward to here every year. Part of me wants to go, but I'm thinking AFAs will be more within my scene nowadays :o

So many pretty outfits already! ACK! They are getting me in the mood for the AFAs and I am going to miss it! :(

Well, I'll see those of you who are still around 7-8 hours after it begins. I'm sure there will be a few of you left! When I come home, maybe I will make a drink or take a few shots or something. :drinking: And then it's on to checking out all the threads!

Lol, I tried to get one from each nominated member in there but I didn't take a note of who I had/hadn't done, doh! Yeah... me and common sense don't go well together... plus... I DID manage to miss myself off! I sort of forgot I wasn't voting so I WAS allowed to put one of my own in there, oh well!
