What to wear to blogger events

There is mucho flappage going on in blogland about what to wear to the upcoming blogger events including Cybher, this weekend’s BlogCamp and blogging badgesBritMums Live.

Look, there’s no need. Anything like this will be aceamundo:

  • Bag on your head – For anonymous bloggers, though you might want to consider the health and safety aspects if it’s only your children who are anonymous. They can have a plastic bucket to wear instead. Get a brand to sponsor it, it’s a win-win solution.
  • Nudist – For the daring amongst you. Some people need very little encouragement for this, and may be taking the pink Cybher theme a little too far. The main problem with this option is where do you put your dongle?
  • Slogan T shirts –  You have many options here , but don’t bother with the ones that say I’m Blogging This. Of course you’re bloody blogging this, otherwise why else would you be there? There are a tidal wave of these type of tees, from My mom is blogging this for babies through to My wife is blogging this for VERY LUCKY MEN. Haven’t yet seen My dog is blogging this, though I can think of at least one person who’d wear that.
  • Special blogging pants – I think we’ll all be wearing these. They’re girls’ pants, but with an “authentic fly”. Me no understand. Must get out blogging pantsmore. Or perhaps try a blogging thong, so every time you bend over you can do an impression of the Twitter fail whale.
  • Slogan badges – For those who don’t like T shirts. I applaud the Please Refer to My Blog badge for managing to be polite and really quite ill-mannered at the same time.

And don’t forget your accessories. For the coffee break, there’s this incredibly passive aggressive mug, or this one for the emotionally exhausted.

I’m going with my daughter to Cybher, in our alter egos as El and Jae from Eljae. So far the best we have come up with is a T shirt that says ‘Follow’ for me and ‘No Follow’ for her but that’s kind of an obscure reference and carries with it the risk that Google might throw you out of the building. What to do?!

  • oh yes good point Trish, I hadn’t thought of that

  • Hollie Smith

    I’m just not at ALL sure about the term flappage, Joanne. It’s distracted me entirely from the rest of the post, TBH… 🙂

  • I think the blogging pants must have a fly in them so that when those keynote speeches are over-running, you can whip out your SheWee and not miss anything?

  • @Hollie Everyone’s a critic!

    @Helen – Thank you, but I do believe that could actually happen…

  • “Google might throw you out of the building!” Very good!

  • interview techniques

    Just your weekend attire. That would make you simple and nice.

  • Simple and nice? Where’s the fun in that? I think special blogging pants should be mandatory.

  • Blogging pants are the future.

  • And with that, we have the official Mammasaurus seal of approval >
