"Just got the exhibitors pack for us (Alli and myself) to set up a fan table at Supanova Sydney, yay!
We were inspired from all the great stuff that happened at wonder con we thought we would set our own up here.
Now we are just waiting on confirmation and all systems are a go."

"Ok on to some new news - i have gotten an email back from supanova saying we have a table but to secure it we need a payment of $220 which alli and i will pay by next week
That includes a table, carpet, 3 chairs and 3 exhibitors tickets.
We also need to get a one-off public liability insurance which from what iv been told should only be around $60 for the weekend.
This is getting exciting!
We also want to hear from you if your planning to cosplay as any of the characters or would like to make some banners so we can hang them around the table.. "
**Naomi and Alli would love help from other Seekers in Australia**

"Ok news update.
We paid for the supanova table today, *happy dance*, now waiting on emails to say they got our payment and paperwork, but it looks like LotS is coming to supanova
Was talking with alli and we will be making Save our Seeker badges and keyrings.
We also have one pass left if anyone is interested in helping out at our table on that weekend, PM me.
Also if anyone wants to help out making a banner for the table, that would be great too.
I got my 9 year old brother hooked and he is going to cosplay as Richard, now just to get an outfit for him.
I'm getting a new camera, so we will be reporting from Supanova for those who can't make it. I will fix up my twitter so we can tweet as well.
Would be awesome for some of the Aussie fans to come along and show your support. "

"Things are starting to come together.
Alli is making buttons and I'm working on making SOS keyrings to giveaway.
Got to print off some posters and flyers.
But we are at a loss on what to have displayed on the table, we are going to have the first 2 books and hopefully the dvd."

"I'd say the DVD is a *must have*, 3-4 books are great, and possibly a laptop running the DVD would be nice because LotS is so visually attractive, it sells itself.
Not sure when 'The Omen Machine' (Terry Goodkind's new book) comes out in Australia. If you have a small poster, you'll make a lot of friends with Terry's fans
Re. buttons and such, keep in mind that people at the cons expect to pay $1-2 for those items and that selling small things will help you recover some of the costs.
If you want to use any of the posters posted on our wiki, you already have permission from the artists to use them:
Just another idea:
sos.com could produce some iTunes cards and take care of fulfillment if LotS is available in Australia. We'll cover the cost. We can send other items too (i.e. biz cards with useful URLs, spice soup cards, etc.). You can see the list of items with pics in the first post on the WonderCon thread. ( forums.legendoftheseeker.org/showthread.php/4438-WonderCon-2011 )
This last post tells your how many items we gave away to give you an idea of what's popular. '
As always, feel free to write to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can chat via skype too. "
