Update from the convention:

It seems Creation has finally recognised a good thing when they see it :) Lucia's artwork is now available from Creation (at the convention) in t-shirts, plaques autographed by Lucy and Renee :) Now how cool is that? So if you're going to the con - grab them because Lucia's artwork is just fantastic. If you're not going to the convention...fingers crossed Creation makes these goodies available for sale online. All the artwork is subtext related <g>

Way to go Lucia!

BardCage - Episode 9/Season 9

Xena and Gabrielle find themselves assisting an old friend when a problem comes up that could cancel his son's wedding.

 

Xenaverse News

  • Here's a game of sorts...from Sharon's site:
    See, we've got this sword and heaps of people signed it, but no one made any notes at the time and now we can't read them  all.  I thought perhaps with all the siggys you guys have collected, you might be able to help.
    http://www.creationent.com/outback/fanclubs/swordsigs.html

For those going to the 2004 Xena con in Burbank (have fun!) and this information is for you.

From Sharon:
FAN PANELS AT THE CONVENTION -- we're going to have two panels -- topics listed below -- at the convention and I'm looking for 2 or 3 people for each topic who would like to lead the discussion, with the audience, from the stage. Missy may be joining one or both of them depending on her jetlag (grin) If you're interested, please email me at outback@creationent.com

1. How has the portrayal of Xena as a strong female character changed the way women characters are judged today in the media? Did Xena raise the bar and is now the one others are judged against?

2. Who was the real hero of the story, Xena or Gabrielle?

Lucy Updates

There has been some light hearted debate about the length and colour of Lucy's hair amongst Lucy fans. The following is a note from Sharon on the Official Xena Fan Club Page:

And for those who have been asking about Lucy, her hair is darker and growing longer. She said the boys in her life missed her long, dark hair. I was surprised that Julius, age four, would really notice the length of his mom's hair and asked her what he said. She laughed, "Not that boy -- Rob."

Articles

  • There's a short mention of Lucy from an article on backstage.com about the movie/documentary "Double Dare". ....Micheli found it ironic that when Epper portrayed a superhero such as Wonder Woman, she not only had to change the way she ran but had to stop working out so that her shoulders became as thin as Lynda Carter's. "It's that double thing--you're not just becoming a character, you're becoming the character in the way that the actor is interpreting it," Micheli says. "So it's almost like a two-layered transformation. I know with Zoe on Xena, she was always very aware what Lucy's habits were-- where she would put her feet, how she would land things. [Although] Lucy could land however she wanted, the second unit would always have to match what the first unit did. Sometimes they would have to shoot second unit before main unit, and they were often happening simultaneously, so [Bell] just got [it] ingrained in her, 'How would Lucy do this?' Read More...

Xena Xena Everywhere

It seems babies are being named Xena as well as animals. The following is from The Mansfield News web site.

MANSFIELD -- Females named after a television show and a movie character lead the list of locals with unusual monikers.

Xena, Euphrasia and Nevaeh were among the uncommon names readers chose to share with the News Journal. Jody I. Humphrey said she doesn't think many people have the same name as her daughter, Xena.  Lucy Lawless, who starred as the breastplate clad barbarian soldier in the syndicated show "Xena: Warrior Princess," might differ. "Actually Xena the Warrior Princess is where we came up with the name from," Humphrey said. "We wanted a name that started with an 'X,'" and that was the only one they could find, she said. "I didn't particularly care for it at the time, but I love it now and it definitely fits her personality. She will be 7 years old on Jan. 28 and she is full of energy and spunk -- just (like) her television namesake," Humphrey said.

I'm very pleased to announce a new section on Ausxip - Music Videos Section.

Here's a real treat. DJWP created one of the best Xena music videos out there - "Gladiators" which is just plain awesome. It follows the path that Xena and Gabrielle have taken and is set to the music of Gladiator. I'm seriously stoked to annouce that DJWP has released a revised version of Gladiators called "Gladiatrix for the first time online (the video was shown at last years Official Xena Convention during the video contest - it was of 5 winners).

What's new in this version is a remix of the music, longer version with added scenes and bound to make you go misty eyed. Sit back and enjoy the journey that Xena and Gabrielle took and realise what a special special show this was.

She is still planning on attending the Sci-Fi Convention at the end of March in London.

Seems like Adrienne will be in an up and coming car commercial. This is what she said about it: Many of you know that I've been doing quite a bit of voiceover work. Well, there is one commercial coming up that I think is hilarious, so I'd like to point it out. It is for Toyota Tacoma and the ad features a 'scorned girlfriend' who has taken her boyfriend's truck hostage and does some very bad things to it. I play her friend who is videotaping the event and commenting the whole time. Voiceover only, but it's funny so I hope you'll keep an eye out for it.
