Details: 

 

All VIPs from across the world are asked to participate in
a BIGBANG concert fan event. The idea is simple – create a star (like the ones shown in the picture, approximately 20 x 20 inches), the front should contain the word “FIGHTING” while the back contains a
personal message from you to the boys. The stars are supposed to be held up throughout the song “Monster”. It’s supposed to show that even after all that has happened, we are still standing as one strong unit, showing our love and support for our 5 Kings!

UPDATE: NOT A MUST, BUT WE THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING THE STARS IN GLOW IN THE DARK COLORS, SO WE CAN’T BE MISSED! CREATIVITY HAS NO LIMITS SO GET WORKING!

Of course this goes for all upcoming concerts, so be creative, I want all the stars to look as individual and unique as possible! :)

NOTE: For all the VIPS that are planning on going to the concert in NJ, there is another fan video event going on with a meet-up hosted by BigBangNYVIPS and Trulyegg. For everyone who can’t make it to the concert, you can inform them and they will make a star for you instead! So go ahead and show them some support http://www.facebook.com/pages/BigBangNYVIPS/137814496355919

Another Fan Event is the one planned for 3rd of November in LA. It’s TOPs birthday the next day and the fans plan on singing a birthday song after the third song which will be “Hands Up” Here the Link https://www.facebook.com/events/428131810543127/?context=create :)

FAQ:
ABOUT THE SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TOP EVENT IN LA and NJ

1. What is the “Sing Happy Birthday to Top event”? (concerns LA and NJ Event)
All V.I.P.s who are attending the November 3rd and 9th concert are asked to join us in singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to T.O.P. after the third song “Hands Up” right before the first break. His birthday is the next day November the 4th, for us in NJ we are 6 days late. So let’s make it an even more memorable day for him. =) Let’s show him our V.I.P. LOVE!!! http://www.facebook.com/events/428131810543127/

2. What language are we singing Happy Birthday in? (concerns LA and NJ Event)
Since most of us don’t know Korean we are doing it in English.

3. If “Hands Up” is for some reason switched out, do we still do it after the 3rd song? (concerns LA and NJ Event)
If the set list for November 3rd is different we will still be singing Happy Birthday after the third song.

4. How should we address T.O.P. in the birthday song? (concerns LA and NJ Event)
Vote closed with 164 voices on Top-sshi (sshi pronounced like she), so our birthday song will be

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear TOP-SSHI
Happy Birthday to you!

Top once mentioned that he wants a division between his stage life and personal life, and it would be somewhat disrespectful to use his personal name in that kind of setting. Since it’s their first concert here, we want to leave an impression of being a polite (but energetic) audience that they would love to return to!

5. Are the L.A. V.I.P.’s joining the “Star for BigBang Event”?
Yes. We would like to create an ocean of glow in the dark stars for them during the MONSTER song. Let your imaginations go wild and make a star for Big Bang.

6. I want to make a star, but am I allowed to bring it into the concert hall?
The hosts of both parties contacted the Honda and Prudentical Center already. We are waiting on responses, so please be patient, once we get an answer, we will give you the okay to get creative. If we don’t have an answer by Friday July 6th via Email, both places will be contacted via phone calls!

7. How do we do the stars?
It’s supposed to be a 20 x 20 inch star made out of cardboard for stability and then painted in glow in the dark color or whatever else catches your eye. The front has the word fighting and the back a personal message for the boys. Creativity has no limits!

8. How can we get the stars to glow and is it a must?
It is definatelty NOT a must, the star is supposed to be a very personal thing, you can let your imagination run wild and do it the way you please. If you want to make it glow use glow in the dark paint or maybe light sticks! :)
Here a link if you want to order glow in the dark colors http://coolglow.com/1/51/51/Glow-Paint/ if it sends you to the main page just click on glow paint! :)

9. Can I make more than one star and leave the back blank and give them out to others at the concerts?
YES, YES, YES :) Please do so, that is a very great idea!:)

10. How do the stars get to the stage?
If you are not allowed to pass the stars on or you can’t because of where you sit, you always have the option to drop the star off at the stage after the concert!

11. Are only VIP tickets allowed to make stars?
NO! We just see everyone that joins us as a VIP, wherever you are seated, please participate!!! :)

12. We aren’t living within the US, can we still participate?
The event is supposed to be international, feel free to bring it abroad!:) Inside the group we are focusing on LA and NJ though for now!

13. Currently we are working out an encore fan chant, since TOP doesn’t have a solo in the show, we want to try to get him to perform one. LA will be chanting for “Turn It Up”, while NJ will go for “No Diggity”. Please check out the updates for it, since we are currently working on the chants!
TO BE UPDATED!!!!

ABOUT MEET-UPS IN LA AND NJ

14. Is there going to be a fan meeting for this event?
Yes one in Los Angeles. We are currently working out the details. As of now we know it’s going to be on November the 3rd. Location most likely in front of the Honda Center. The time is going to be set after the tickets go on sale.
For New Jersey we haven’t quite talked about it yet, there is a fan meeting but not set up through us, it’s lead by BigBangNYVIPS and Trulyegg. They are hosting a fan video event, in fact they would make a star for even those who can’t make it, please let them know. http://www.facebook.com/pages/BigBangNYVIPS/137814496355919
IF ANYONE WANTS TO SET UP A MEETING FOR OUR STARS PLEASE CONTACT ME! (Franzi)
Please check back for updates.

HOW CAN YOU HELP US OUT?

15. How can we contribute to this event?
Please help us by posting the information about the event in any other V.I.P. forum/blog/BigBang Youtube’s MVs, twitter, tumblr. We set a time for every Friday to come together and mass post this event on every page possible – What time? 7-8pm (central)!

Thank You for being part of this event. We look forward to meeting you at the concert. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to leave a comment. We will try to the best of our knowledge to answer any questions you guys have. Fighting!!!=)

**** NEW T-SHIRT FAQ****

—-How Long will the shirts be available?
Until a week or so after both concerts have ended. However, please take in to account that it takes 4-8 days to process and ship the shirts, so don’t order at the last minute!

—-Are you making the shirts yourselves?
No, we are using Spreadshirt to print and distribute the shirts. They are a popular and reputable company that prints designs on-demand.

—-Is there any way you can lower the price?
No. We are not making any profit on theses shirts; we are only charging the base Spreadshirt price. Therefore, it is impossible to reduce the price any more. Plus, $11.90 is pretty cheap. ;)

—-What shirts are available?
Standard Weight Women’s Tees, Standard Weight Men’s Tees, Canvas V-Neck Tees, Women’s Plus Size Tees, Men’s 3XL/4XL Tees.

—-Can you put up _________ type of shirts?
We already have an nice assortment of shirt choices and are not currently planning on adding more. We want to keep things simple (as well as fair to those that ordered early).

—-Why no Women’s V-Neck?
The women’s v-necks are not the best quality and hardly come to a “v” at all. Your best bet would be the Canvas V-Neck, sized accordingly (see below).

—-How do the shirts fit?
Each shirt is different. The Men’s: regular men’s shirt fit; medium weight fabric; not extra soft but not too rough. The Women’s: Same fabric type as Men’s; fits smaller than a men’s or unisex Tee; shorter length. Canvas V-Neck: Extremely soft fabric; although it is a “men’s” tee, it supposedly fits more like a unisex tee (which is smaller than a men’s tee, but slightly bigger than a Women’s)/ Plus Size: Similar to the Men/Women’s Tees, only larger.
The best way to tell the shirt’s fit is by looking at the measurements on the Sizing Chart. To find the Size Chart, simple click the link next to the size drop-down menu.

—-Can I get the shirt in _______ color?
We cannot control what color shirts Spreadshirt offers, so the colors listed in the store are the only colors available.

—-Is it really glow-in-the-dark? It just looks white.
Yup, it’s glow-in-the-dark! It’s just hard to show it over a computer. :)

—-What’s the difference between the LA and NJ shirts?
Both shirts are the same, except the LA shirt has “Los Angeles, CA” on the back while NJ has “Newark, NJ.”

—-If I buy the shirt and it doesn’t fit, can I return it?
Spreadshirt handles all returns, so you will need to contact them directly. Since all products are printed on-demand, any shirts returned must be destroyed or donated. If Spreadshirt made an error printing, they will gladly send a replacement. If you just want to return the shirt because of sizing/personal reasons, however, Spreadshirt will normally offer store credit as a refund…but you will probably have to mail the product back and pay for return shipping.

—-Who designed the shirts?
The shirts were designed by Mirella, approved by all hosts, and then converted/uploaded by Corey. A group effort. :)

FAQ Tickets:

When will the tickets go on sale and how much are they and what is included?
No information has been given out yet, everything is as of right now not more than speculation and we will let everyone know once the info goes out. It should be ahead of time, like they did it with the other concerts so far, so please everyone stay patient! Thank you!
