• 'Breaking Dawn' Launch Party at Chapters/Indigo

    Posted by Nicki, 7 years ago

    My name is Nicki and I work in the marketing department at Indigo. On Friday August 1st at midnight a selection of Indigo stores will be hosting a party for the launch of 'Breaking Dawn'. We want YOU to celebrate with us and to help us come up with a theme for the party.

    Below are a few themes to choose from. Vote for the one you like the best.
    If you have any other ideas or thoughts we would love to hear about them. You can post them in the comments.

    Once more plans are finalized, we will come back and share all the exciting details with you!

    Thanks for your help!

    It might sound cheesy but i remember watching some movies with a mascuerade ball where their costumes resembled animals (I believe the movie i have in mind is Ever After). And i think that having a masquerade it would fit for the books ( their more like creatures then animals thou) that and ive always wanted to dress up in a crazy custume and go to a masquerade. although im not sure how other twilight fans would feel about this type of idea, not everyone is as eccentric as me. But thats also the beauty of a masquerade, you get to dress up and pretend to be something or someone else and wear a mask so no one knows it's you, unless you want them to.

    Actually i thought up another cool aspect to having a masquerade. In Twilight the characters have hidden identities (vampire, werewolf) that they must keep secret. We all have our own "hidden creatures" inside us that we keep secret from the world. So in celebration of the arrival of Breaking Dawn, Twilight fans should seize this opportunity to reveal their own inner creature.

    Being a Meyer fan and a Chapters employee, I am pretty excited about the release. Ithink the masquerade theme could be super fun, and really help to pull in more involvement from employees as well as the general public. It would be cool to have a mask making group the day before release so customers and staff could prepare - and to build excitement. there could also be cross-over theme: costumes as wedding dresses, or external decorations. Plus there's dressing up like the vampires and werewolves themselves. A werewold bride? A vampire prom king?

    I just remember all the fun we had with Harry Potter. I can't wait to be involved in something like this!

    We tried to do a prom or formal dance for our last Harry Potter event and you really need some cash to do it right so I'd have to vote for the Masquerade Ball. I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with a fresh theme and it's certainly not easy.
    Maybe you could use Italy for some inspiration. They are famous for their masquerade and part of New Moon is set there. You could do vampires through the ages trivia. Or couples/lovers through the ages.
    If you go with the wedding I recommend Storybook Love- the song from The Princess Bride movie.
    I hope some Chapters stores get to participate in this event. WE have no Indigo in Nova Scotia and the Meyers books took off here ages ago!

    I think the masquerade sounds like a lot of fun. It would give me a reason to use one of my own masks.

    I think it would look just lovely with a wedding theme. Already I suspect that the impending wedding with have a 1918 feel and I think that just completely jives with Edward. I too hope that my somewhat local Chapters can participate in the event. I think I would take a trip down just to go and see it. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    I agree with Husnia - Hamilton release party please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Maybe Ancaster Meadowlands Chapters???)

    report this

  • 7 years ago

    Definitely. The Chapters in Meadowlands is pretty big, so it can accompany lots of people. Please oh PLEASE have a release party there! My life would be fulfilled!!! =)

    I think it would only be fair that all Chapters across Canada host the release party for Breaking Dawn. If not i do hope there wil be one in Ottawa

    I spoke with someone at the Winnipeg Polo Park store and she said that the store would be doing something she just wasn't sure what that was,

    report this

  • 7 years ago

    Will there be one in Calgary, Alberta?

    As for the theme, I would prefer the Masquerade.
    Hopefully set in the 1918. Get dressed up for that time period and it can be anything! Can be a birthday (celebrating Edward's bday!) or the wedding! Since the wedding has somewhat a 1918 vide to it (The ring and the dress)

    The prom was a main even in Twilight, so i would like the theme more towards the events that would be in Breaking Dawn.

    Another great idea would be to decorate Chapters/Indigo stores to have the early 20th century look!!

    During the HP7 release, there were stamps available.
    Can we get a quote in Edward's 'handwriting'/font? (Like 'Be Safe' , etc) and one in Jacob's (for Team Jacob)?

    That would be great!!! ^_^

    The Chapters in Ancaster may have one because they have had ones in the past for Harry Potter, which obviously is a MAJOR release event. I may try calling them soon, Husnia!!! :)

    During the launching, you guys should cover the walls in giant posters of trees, like the forest in forks! It would be so cool!
    The lighting has to be really "intense" if you know what I mean.
    I also am wondering... I heard Stephenie Meyer will be doing a breaking dawn book signing at some point. Is this true? if so, when? (for vancouver)
    I REALLY like the Masquerade idea!!!!!!<3333333

    I prefer the wedding idea because Edward and Bella are engaged and I hope they marry in this new book. I even have a torn up funky white wedding like dress from halloween that I can wear. But I guess even if it's a masquerade I can wear the dress and add a mask lolz I can't wait! AHHHHH lol

    You can buy masquerade masks at dollar stores, party supply stores and costume stores. And the store where you attend the event will likely have a table set up where you can make a mask for yourself.
