Our Midnight Release Party for Brisingr was a blast — from the fun-beyond-my-wildest-expectations Knight for a Night Picture Station (everyone got in on that) to the frighteningly realistic battles put on by the Society for Creative Anachronism (Internet, I confess: I cringed every time I heard a particularly loud thwack while visions of personal injury lawsuits danced around my head), everything went better than I could have hoped. I attribute most of that to the stellar efforts of the lovely Lydia Black, or as partygoers know her, the Elven Queen Lyra; she definitely brought the medieval and the fantasy to the party.
Were you there? I’m polling favorite moments! Mine was probably the costume contest (sadly, my camera died long before I could document it) — seeing the fantastic regalia that fans of the series put together for the party was awesome. Leave yours in the comments!
