Suzanne and Erin have been running Atlanta Cosplay Yard Sale since 2017, and decided their love of the macabre, history, their own flair for the dramatic, and event management would make a wonderful experience for Atlanta.
Suzanne has a background in office management and owns a construction company alongside her husband. She is co-chair for Monsterama, a classic horror convention in Atlanta, and regularly attends other local cons and festivals. She has 2 children who are often seen trailing behind her yelling, "Mom you’re walking too fast!"
Erin works for a large non-profit in office management. She's Volunteer Director for Monsterama and Spy Con. She's also volunteers at and attends many of the other local conventions. She loves going to the movies, sewing up a storm, and is always available for bar mitzvahs.
If you haven’t guessed already, we’re pretty wild about history. CrowsEye Productions have put on a lovely series called Getting Dressed, and their most recent one is very relevant to us here and now. Getting Dressed – Dickensian Christmas (1853) is a beautiful production of a maid getting dressed and then heading out to some Read more about Getting Dressed[…]
Our Victorian Twelfth Night event on January 5 is nearly here, and it’s time to give further introduction to our evening’s performers. Valentine Wolfe will perform music from their latest album and a few crowd favorites, while Tally Johnson will share Christmas ghost stories. Besides the end-of-the-night festivities we will have Victorian parlor games, food, Read more about Performers at Twelfth Night[…]
Twelfth Night is an age old tradition that certainly didn’t start during the Victorian times, but it gained notoriety during then. It became such a scene that Queen Victoria outlawed it entirely, even after she had participated in many Twelfth Nights herself. January 5, we are bringing it back. The food, the drink, the games, Read more about Join us for a Victorian Twelfth Night[…]
Divinations are easy to perform and usually more accessible in every day life for the Victorian. Palmistry, tarot cards, and crystal gazing was reserved for drawing room entertainment. The Victorian woman may need an answer right away to a perplexing question or a solution to a problem. Tonight… you are the Victorian. You have questions Read more about The Divinations for Victorian Spiritualism[…]
“Lottie, have you seen the posters they put out about us?”, whispered Kitty. She felt that raising her voice would cause them to be discovered, and yet it was only her and her sister Charlotte in the house, and the spirits of course. “I have. There’s nothing to worry about. It’s only the act of Read more about The Two Sisters[…]
We have 2 events going on in the Wynne-Russell House in Lilburn, Ga and we couldn’t be happier to be in a facility such as this. We’re allowed to wrap ourselves in it’s history. The Wynne-Russell House, built in 1826, is on the Registry of Historic Places and is a pristine example of “Plantation Plain” Read more about The Historic Wynne-Russell House[…]
Georgia wasn’t a hot bed of spiritualist activity, much like the British were. They did have their performances and lectures (which I’ll post another time), but what they did have were the “Georgia Wonders”. While other parts of the nation and a good part of Victorian England had their celebrity mediums, Georgia was cooking their Read more about Spiritualism in Middle Georgia[…]
We don’t find just *any* location… it has to be perfect. We scout as many venues as possible, even ones we don’t think would ever work because you never know when inspiration hits and you might need it. I have to say that Atlanta has a huge variety of event spaces. As little as a Read more about You’re only as good as your location[…]
I’ve organized a few conventions, and the most fun I’ve had was filling in the details. The mostly unseen items strewn about the con floor, that when it is recognized you can hear a hearty laughter through the hall. I think that’s why I like chatelaines so much. They’re the detail of a Victorian lady’s Read more about Down to the Last Detail[…]
Atlanta Cosplay Yard Sale started as its own little event. It was a chance for cosplayers to sell their used costumes, accessories, props, etc… and for the rest of us to complete our costumes or buy a complete set. When you go to Dragon Con, you don’t just cosplay ONE character… oh no…. you have Read more about Atlanta Cosplay Yard Sale[…]
