After “The Making” comes the party itself: SteamPoe, Flips Flipping Pages’ Halloween party for 2012, held at Briggy Hall in Kapitolyo.
Here is SteamPoe in photos — I had to wade through so many photos, it took all week to get this entry done!
First, the cast of characters:
The Dr. Who fangirls Honey, Dianne and Shani (as Idris, the 10th doctor, and River Song). JDV
Before we go to the night’s entertainment, let me show you some details of my costume, because I made the wings myself!
I love how it turned out, considering it was cobbled together from a thrifted dress, rubber foam, a ton of brads and eyelets (all from National Book Store’s scrapbooking section, strips of leatherette, welding goggles, and various odds and ends — all in a few hours snatched here and there within the week leading up to the party!
After our “character” introductions, we had a scavenger hunt, which involved Flippers running around Kapitolyo in costume (hehe!).
We also had a wicked poetry slam!
Honey kicked off the Poefest reciting “The Raven,” followed by Gege, Danica, Cecille, Fredda and Darwin and their erm, interpretative rendition of “Annabel Lee.” Art, Mike, and Joko tackled “A Dream within a Dream,” while Jeeves, Rhett and Vincent took on the onomatopoeic “Bells.” Moving away from Poe, Jeeves and Joko did a spoken word performance (the content of which cannot be revealed here — you just had to be there!), followed by Gege’s passionate reading of her ode to books, and Jeeves’ and Shani’s performance of “When Love Arrives” (by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye). Way to go, Flippers!
All in all, it was an awesome, awesome night. RDJ
I love that theme parties (even book discussions!) have become an FFP tradition, because everyone’s so game. We’re not done yet for 2012, though — we’re squeezing in another one before the year ends: the annual FFP Christmas party!
Thank you bunches to FFP shutterbugs Rhett de Jesus, Jeeves de Veyra, Dianne Singson and Mike Bahrami for the photos.

I love books and everything to do with them — bookmarks, book plates, reading implements, book-related toys and accessories and other bookish ephemera. I’ve amassed a veritable loot over the holidays, thanks to some very thoughtful people. Here’s the stash: It’s always lovely when people get you things they know you’ll appreciate. And these are…

I’m back from an incredibly busy Halloween season! As if the whole ASOIAF shebang (DIY Iron Throne, DIY wildling cloak and all) weren’t enough to tide me over, I had two other Halloween parties lined up! One was my younger cousin’s birthday party (wherein we created a haunted house and scared the wits out of…

The GeekFight Halloween Party was last Friday, and the team I play with, WAADO, had a Best in Costume record to keep (we won last year), we decided to dress up again this year. GeekFight is a monthly (or bi-monthly, depending on which games you attend) trivia quiz on geeky topics, and we’ve been…

Hello! It feels so good to be back blogging here — life’s been overwhelming since I got back from the AFCC, and well, this year in general, but I am hoping (*fingers crossed*) I can post more regularly from hereon out. Anyway, I have an article on the AFCC coming out this weekend, and I…

When we were planning the Flips Flipping Pages outreach activity at the start of the year, I purposely chose January 28th as the date because I wanted to do something for my birthday as well. My wish was granted as we got the opportunity to spend a day with the kids of All Together in Dignity…

Quick post! I just wanted to share: my book club, Flips Flipping Pages, kicked off the year with, of all things, a bowling tourney! Hahaha, I haven’t gone bowling in about seven years, but well, Flippers are always great company, so non-existent bowling skills aside, I went along anyway. I was muddling through well enough…

(Continuation. Click for Part I and Part II) So the Flippers started arriving, and nobody was owning up to their bookish alter ego, as part of the activities was a guessing game of who could name the most characters in the party. We had our scrumptious buffet and our traditional gift-giving, and after we had…

For the Flippers who attended this year’s Christmas party, aptly entitled ‘Reading Rampage: A Bookish Ball,’ this fabulous caricature by my ‘seezter’ Flipper Ajie Taduran says it all, but I want to show all of you just how crazy the night was, and how much fun we all had — so here’s the start of…

Several weeks’ worth of hard work paid off for us in the organizing committee, as last Saturday, Flips Flipping Pages celebrated its fourth annual Christmas party, entitled “Reading Rampage: A Bookish Ball,” which we celebrated at Powerbooks Greenbelt. The Christmas party is the biggest event for the Flippers in the calendar year, and I can’t…

I can’t believe the first FFP 24 Hour Readathon is over. I’ve been attempting to catch up on lost sleep (no success there yet!), hence this post is a bit delayed — it’s the first time I ever readathoned for a full 24 hours, and it felt a lot longer than that to me! I…
