If you're going to PAX
and want to bring a friend with you, just print out their avatar and put it in your suitcase! (Lamination is always a good idea as well, but certainly not required.) Hell, if you've got lots of friends, print out four or five! You can even get creative with your avatars like I did last year (see above) -- it's totally up to you!
If you're not going to PAX
, just write a Cblog and beg someone to adopt you! (Here's
a good example from a few years back by our own ChillyBilly.) Or, hit up someone personally. Whatever you do, DON'T BE SHY! This is a long-standing Dtoid tradition, so even if it's your first day here and you don't really know anyone yet, I assure you: someone WILL adopt you.
Then, once all you adopters are in Seattle, just take your adoptees' avatars with you wherever you go and snap a bunch of photos! How involved you are as an adoptive parent is totally up to you; the important thing is that you just have fun! Oh, and be sure to share your adventure with us when you get back. (Here's
an example of what I did for T3HM0RR0W during my very first PAX adventure. And here's
what Dtoid alum Sean Carey did for me when I couldn't go back in 2010.)
The only thing that matters here is that we grow stronger as a community -- after all, that's what PAX is all about :)
So what are you waiting for?! Go adopt some avatars!
