It rained today! So we’ll be keeping a close eye on the weather.
Fortunately the forecast for Sunday is that it will be in the 70s, and sunny!
Unfortunately if the weather DOES take a turn for the worst, we may have to postpone the tea party until either the weather clears up or we acquire a venue to host the tea party in.
Please keep yourself updated by checking this blog! Thank you! And stay classy!
On Thursday, August 23rd, all West-Wind Drive-Ins are having a customer appreciation day. What does this mean for you? Free movies! There is no admission fee for the Drive-In on this day.
California locations include Sacramento, San Jose, Oakland, Goleta, and Concord.
Check out their website for more information, but more importantly, spread the word! This is something everyone should be able to enjoy.
Reminding everyone that this is a thing, and! If you would like to try to organize with people for available car seats, you can use this document to do so. Please do not just fill in your name on the document and assume it’s okay. Contact drivers with seats open to find out if they’d be okay with you being in their vehicle (and be respectful if they say no). And have fun :3
This is a thing that is happening.
And at my car I shall try to have extra seating blankets and snacks….
Come have fun…
Hmmm… Maybe I Might Go…??? If Tom And Ryan Can Go That’d Be Fun…. (If Mitsu Goes That’d Be Even Better….)
Nice thought but I have to work and house sit. And finals are next week. Sorry.
If I’m home, your welcome to come by after.
If you’re drawing blanks on how to dress, here is an easy step-by-step guide on How To Dress For A Tea Party~!
Um, i hate to be an annoyance, but i can’t figure out the post order on this blog and I was wondering if the picnic had been rescheduled before or after the large informational post was put out.So basically what I was wondering what date the picnic is as of right now? Also if I was to be coming only as a photographer for a friend would I still be allowed to come, with or without a cosplay? I will be able to bring anything that is required, but I don’t feel like I’d be able to cosplay that day.
It’s no annoyance, please tell everyone to send me their questions! Also Sorry this took so long to answer I was out and about all day for father’s day.
The date for picnicstuck (with the auction) is Wednesday June 20th, from 12pm to 5pm at William Land Park at picnic spot GA-7 (It’s directly across the parking lot from where we hosted it last time). Coming in street clothes is completely fine. Cosplay is only required for those in the auction. But gray and horns are not encouraged. If the park officials ask you to removed them please comply.
I’m sure I don’t have to discuss proper photo etiquette with you but for the sake of others.
- Ask before you snap a picture and if you can post the pictures online.
- Also ask if the person would like to be sent the picture you took.
- If you take candid shots (what was number one?) please ask everyone in the picture if they are alright with you posting it…then refer to number 2.
- Finally if someone contacts you asking you to remove a picture please do not fuss, just do it.
Please bring money to bid at the auction plus your spirit of competition (
watch Storage Wars)! You get to spend all day with not only wonderful people/cosplayers but people who are acting as the characters~! It’s also a fun way to meet new people in the area and raise money from promstuck. We’re not asking for an arm and a leg just a small bid/donation.
And If you could bring a dish that would be superb.
Also fair warning there is a nasty rumor/story going around about a someone drugging other Homestuckers through Faygo at a meet-ups, as a result Papermoose encourages everyone to bring their own drinks (water bottles, tea, etc) and to keep close watch over them. But this should be practiced at any public place/gathering where there are people who you do not know well.
Stay hydrated as well, it’s hot out there!
Finally, the date was rescheduled after the long informational post
due to the realization that someone important did not have a ride as planned. I hope this is not an inconvenience to you (any of you) and I hope to see you at the picnic!
Here is the original post by Papermoose. But remember it is now on the 20th not 21st!
this ask turned into some long ass informational post…sorry asker(?) user(?)

Homestuck Dress-Up Tea Party 2.0
Wednesday, June 27th
10:30AM - 4:00PM
3800 South Land Park Drive, Sacramento, California
William Land Park, Ampitheater Near GA13
Just what it says on the box!
The Party is themed “Fancy Tea Party”, but cosplay is encouraged as long as they are appropriate (so please, no gray!) and while following the Dress Code is encouraged, if you are unable to dress up or follow the theme you are still welcome to join us!
The clothes don’t make the party after all :D (But Ur A Chump If U Show Up In Jeans) Also you might want to bring extra casual clothing to change into later because being in fancy clothes can get tiring after a while!
There will be games, prizes, and photoshoots at this party, which will be described in full detail later, so be prepared for all those!
(So don’t forget cameras, game faces, and your good sportsmanship!)
Things To Bring (Optional but encouraged!):
- Please bring your own picnic blankets! We will be sitting on the grass.
- Also, bring umbrellas if you have them, you never know when you’ll need portable shade!
- If anyone has a portable stove or something that can heat water, you are encouraged to bring it to make it easier to warm up large amounts of water.
- The Party will have some food provided, but it would be much appreciated if everyone brought something to share!
- Please bring appropriate food as well as the utensils required to eat it with since we won’t be able to provide everything!
(Appropriate food ex. finger foods that are not messy [sandwiches and non-powdered cookies],
Non-appropriate food ex. are difficult to eat food, like lava cakes [no matter how delicious they are, people will inevitably get chocolate on someone!], some of us will be dressed nicely and won’t want something to fall on us!)
- ICE!!! If you can find it in your heart to bring it, bring lots and lots of ice!!! The more the merrier! Bags of ice, ice blocks, cold packets, whatever!
- Cold or Hot Tea! Pre-made or the stuff to make it there, that’d be great!
- Teacups and Tea Sets are always appreciated, but we will not be responsible for broken or chipped sets.
- Bring a friend! Preferably one into Homestuck! The more the merrier!
As the title states, this will be a Fancy Tea Party, and all participants and guests are required to act appropriately and with class.
This is a classy event at which decorum should be exercised.
Put simply, if you misbehave we’re sending your ass home.
To Be Announced
So go ahead, sign the attendance sheet, spread the word, and stay classy Sacramento ;)
We’re changing the date to Wednesday the 20th. Please spread the word!
Okay, We’re editing this list to make it more serviceable! This list will now include EVERYONE that has received enough nominations to get on the ballot, so that people don’t waste their nominations sending in more than necessary.
This is not the final list! This is just an in-progress list that we’ll update as often as we’re able of the people that have received enough nominations to be on the ballot for Sacramento Promstuck Royalty. You cannot vote for these people yet, this is just for reference.
- chain-of-prospit (King)
- codgog (King)
- princeofpoles (King)
- crevan-grietje (Mayor)
- gamzees-purple-nipples (Queen)
- obviously-luna (Queen)
- tigerlilyturnedblue (Queen)
Hello everyone! If you’re wondering to yourself, “What is Sacramento Promstuck?” take a gander over here and here to get filled in. If you already know what it is, then keep reading! Because what’s any good prom without Prom Royalty?
Prom is Wednesday, June 29th. That’s only seventeen days away! So here’s how things are going to work:
We will be accepting Promstuck Royalty Nominations from RIGHT NOW until 6/16 at 11:59 PM. We’ll take a couple days to process the nominations, contact the people who have been nominated, and then open voting on 6/18 at 11:59pm. Voting will continue for one week, closing on 6/27 at 11:59pm, at which point we will count the votes and announce the winner at Promstuck itself.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO NOMINATE SOMEONE AS PROM ROYALTY:
Send an ask or submit with the tumblr of the person you are nominating to this blog. Nominations sent to the main Sacramento Promstuck will not be accepted. Nominations sent on anonymous will not be accepted. You CAN nominate yourself (who nominates who will not be made public, so you don’t have to worry about that sort of thing).
You can only nominate three people for Prom Royalty. You don’t have to nominate them all at once; in fact, you don’t have to nominate three people at all. Just know that you cannot nominate more than three people for Prom Royalty. If you attempt to circumvent this, all of your nominations will be considered invalid.
Once we have received your nomination, we will reply to let you know that it has been received within 24hrs (to prevent tumblr from eating anything).
In order for a nominee to be placed on the ballot for Promstuck Royalty, they must be nominated by two separate people. Let me repeat: two separate tumblr users must nominate someone for that someone to be put on the ballot. If this minimum is met, we will begin the process of contacting the nominee to see if they want to run, and if so, which royalty title they want to run for.
So, that’s it! If you want to take a look at who you can nominate, check out the attendance sheet over here.
Get to it everyone! Let’s make this a Promstuck to remember 0 w 0
I want to be a royal (Tn T )
I’m so behind on what’s happening….curse you school
Since this was recent and apparently in our area, I urge everyone, please PLEASE bring your own drinks to Picnicstuck and DO NOT accept any Faygo from anyone!
About two weeks back, a date rape drug was slipped into a bottle of Faygo and brought to a meetup. It was shared with a few Homestuck fans who ended up being hospitalized.
The three cosplayers who brought it were not caught.
The description of their cosplays were two male cosplayers, a Sollux and a Karkat covered in dark acrylic paint, and a Roxy without a wig.
I may just be paranoid, and this may not be true, but I don’t want anything bad to happen. And I already suspect things may be a bit strange with the cosplay auction. So please, bring your own drinks and do not accept or share with anybody!
This story may or may not be true but lets air on the side of caution.
Do not accept any drinks from strangers and keep your drinks/cups/food with you at all times.
I will try to keep and eye out for suspicious people and remind people of these tips but don’t rely and the kindness of others, take precautions.
This should be a standard at all meet-ups though. Regardless of the story’s validity.
