IGGPPCamp 2016: Inside the Theme

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… IGGPPCAMP! This year, campers are celebrating camp by flashing their flare for movement. Whether you’re getting out and about to snap pictures for the photo scavenger hunt, participating in yoga challenges, crafting new creations, or chatting with your troop, camp is all about interacting with the world around you. As you hurry to forge new friendships and bake up a batch of treats to devour in your blanket fort, stop to answer a few of our camp theme questions!

1) Treat yo self! We should all ride in style, what would be your geeky ride of choice?

2) Pimp your ride. We don’t just want a jet pack, we want one that sprinkles out pixie dust and rainbows as we soar from comic shop to comic shop. What would the special effects on your mode of transportation look like?

3) Best in show. Every captain needs a co-pilot. Who/what is yours?

4) Mix of awesome. You can’t cruise without music, give us a top 5 for songs on your playlist!

5) Don’t feed them after midnight… What geeky inspired snack or food would you take on any adventure for sustenance?

I have to say I’d want to have my very own TARDIS. I’d definitely need an operator’s manual, though, as well as a list of DO AND DO NOT guidelines so I don’t accidentally muck anything up!

2) Pimp your ride. We don’t just want a jet pack, we want one that sprinkles out pixie dust and rainbows as we soar from comic shop to comic shop. What would the special effects on your mode of transportation look like?
WELL. My TARDIS would obviously have a functioning chameleon circuit so it wouldn’t look like a blue police box. I’d definitely install a library and a pool, as well as a collectibles room for all of the amazing things I pick up across the universe. I’d need a whole room filled with cat trees and other things for my kitties because OBVIOUSLY they’re coming with me. And I’d need plenty of guest rooms because I’m just not into that Lonely Brooding Traveler thing.

3) Best in show. Every captain needs a co-pilot. Who/what is yours?
My cats. But otherwise it’d be handy to have the Doctor along for the ride. Or Hermione Granger. She keeps a cool head, is handy with her spellwork, and tends to learn about wherever she is in a relatively short time which could prove invaluable. Definitely Hermione.

4) Mix of awesome. You can’t cruise without music, give us a top 5 for songs on your playlist!
Oooh, just five? Right now I’m jamming most to Just Like Fire by P!nk, I2I from A Goofy Movie, Thunderstruck by AC/DC, Groove Is In the Heart by Deee-Lite, and the new Ghostbusters theme with Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot! (Basically go check out the camp playlist.)

5) Don’t feed them after midnight… What geeky inspired snack or food would you take on any adventure for sustenance?
Lembas bread. It keeps forever, doesn’t take up much space, and has everything you need. Though honestly, you know my TARDIS will have a huge kitchen so I can stock up on everything I need!

1) Treat yo self! We should all ride in style, what would be your geeky ride of choice?

Um, a unicorn. Cause they are pretty and fierce and you know I’d look SUPER COOL riding into town on one.

2) Pimp your ride. We don’t just want a jet pack, we want one that sprinkles out pixie dust and rainbows as we soar from comic shop to comic shop. What would the special effects on your mode of transportation look like?

Ok, well MY unicorn, Her Royal Highness the Princess Patricia of the Northern Woods – or Princess Pat for short, has super speed, so she can get from place to place LOTS faster than a normal horse.

3) Best in show. Every captain needs a co-pilot. Who/what is yours?

I’ve also got to bring a cat. Cause I’m on a unicorn. This doesn’t hold two people (unless I’m saving someone), but my cat rides along in a cute little side bag.

4) Mix of awesome. You can’t cruise without music, give us a top 5 for songs on your playlist!

What are the first 5 songs off the Hamilton Soundtrack? Just play those on repeat. ;-P I’m only kind of joking…

5) Don’t feed them after midnight… What geeky inspired snack or food would you take on any adventure for sustenance?

I was like – um, beef jerky? Then I reread the GEEKY part of the question. Ok, um, dragon jerky? I really like jerky.

1) Treat yo self! We should all ride in style, what would be your geeky ride of choice?

I’d happily take the X-Men’s Blackbird. Something fast enough to get me around the world in reasonable time and large enough to bring some friends along. Plus, I’m sure the Shi’ar technology would come in handy.

2) Pimp your ride. We don’t just want a jet pack, we want one that sprinkles out pixie dust and rainbows as we soar from comic shop to comic shop. What would the special effects on your mode of transportation look like?

Definitely a cloaking device so I could park anywhere I’d like without getting a ticket.

3) Best in show. Every captain needs a co-pilot. Who/what is yours?

Having the other IGGPPC staff members on board would make for some fun adventures.

4) Mix of awesome. You can’t cruise without music, give us a top 5 for songs on your playlist!

Right now I’d want to listen to anything by No Doubt or Tegan and Sara. Their albums are perfect for cruising.

5) Don’t feed them after midnight… What geeky inspired snack or food would you take on any adventure for sustenance?

Maybe some senzu beans to keep my energy up and sickness away while I travel the world.

1) Treat yo self! We should all ride in style, what would be your geeky ride of choice?

Definitely the Flying Ford Anglia, hopefully being driven NOT by Ron but a cute older brother.

2) Pimp your ride. We don’t just want a jet pack, we want one that sprinkles out pixie dust and rainbows as we soar from comic shop to comic shop. What would the special effects on your mode of transportation look like?

I’d hire Perkins to fit it with the Undetectable Extension Charm. Give me a Jacuzzi in the backseat and I’ll be set!

3) Best in show. Every captain needs a co-pilot. Who/what is yours?
Wash… a pilot I’d trust implicitly! He’d get me safely across the Verse in no time. Oh, and all the Iggles. It’s not like we couldn’t fit…

4) Mix of awesome. You can’t cruise without music, give us a top 5 for songs on your playlist!

Gorillaz! They’re always on the top of my playlist.

5) Don’t feed them after midnight… What geeky inspired snack or food would you take on any adventure for sustenance?

Campy Bento Boxes with adorable anime inspired food items! Nom nom nom.

1) Treat yo self! We should all ride in style, what would be your geeky ride of choice?

A dragon, probably. I’ve always wanted a dragon.

2) Pimp your ride. We don’t just want a jet pack, we want one that sprinkles out pixie dust and rainbows as we soar from comic shop to comic shop. What would the special effects on your mode of transportation look like?

My dragon would be able to fly through space, all I need to do is paint some flames on the side. Flames make everything go faster and also make thing space-worthy, right? DON’T QUESTION MY LOGIC!

3) Best in show. Every captain needs a co-pilot. Who/what is yours?

Probably my husband, just to make sure I don’t do anything stupid. I mean, I’m already on a space dragon.

4) Mix of awesome. You can’t cruise without music, give us a top 5 for songs on your playlist!

When I’m traveling, it’s all dance music all the time. I can sing along and it miiight make me drive a little faster. Top five? Untouchable by Tritonal & Cash Cash, Light it Up by Major Lazer, Alone by Marshmallo, How Deep is Your Love by Calvin Harris & Disciples, and Spectrum by Zedd. I could go on, but those are some of my favorites.

5) Don’t feed them after midnight… What geeky inspired snack or food would you take on any adventure for sustenance?

Chocolate Frogs, of course! Helps with dementor attacks and you get a cool prize? Sign me up!

Grove Warden, hands down. Because, FINALLY.

2) Pimp your ride. We don’t just want a jet pack, we want one that sprinkles out pixie dust and rainbows as we soar from comic shop to comic shop. What would the special effects on your mode of transportation look like?

Not only does my amazing moose friend FLY, he also spits out iridescent sparks from his hooves. Sure the people at WoW that designed him gave him spiffy tattoos, but in my ideal world they would change colours through the visible spectrum and at night, we would leave trails of the Aurora Borealis in our wake.

3) Best in show. Every captain needs a co-pilot. Who/what is yours?

My little nerdling. With a set of goggles. Babies in steampunk gear = cutest adventurers ever!

4) Mix of awesome. You can’t cruise without music, give us a top 5 for songs on your playlist!

This is terrible. I’m ALL over the map when it comes to sing-along-fun for roadtrips. Not that you have to sing along, but, we all know we’re going to. Mama Mia – ABBA, No You Girls – Franz Ferdinand, Hey Ya! – OutKast, Rehab – Amy Winehouse, and naturally the penultimate driving song: Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

5) Don’t feed them after midnight… What geeky inspired snack or food would you take on any adventure for sustenance?

Muddy Buddies are a driving force in my life, but fresh veggies and homemade hummus are one of my favorite things.
