The Con approaches! [Sep. 6th, 2009|10:53 am]
Poll #1454007 Will you be at RainFurrest?

Only two weeks until...

...I'll be at RainFurrest. See you there!
...I'll be missing RainFurrest. Bummer.
...I don't know where I'll be. I don't plan that far in advance!
...purple space weasels eat my brain.

I'm getting prepared for the con. Still have far too much to do yet at the same time I'm anxious -- really looking forward to it.

I have four panels to do (plus some GoH functions). I'm doing two specialty ones: Patterning and Fursuiting on the Cheap. These are taking some extra preparation to ensure I have new presentation materials and specific examples. I also got a projector so I'm trying to get everything into a laptop slideshow and seem all organized and stuff. :P

I'm also on two general panels: Body Construction and Head Construction. Always good to cover these topics for people tackling their first project. And I'll try to think of as many different things to throw in as I can -- broad coverage of approaches and such -- to keep it interesting.

Oh and if you've been thinking about getting my book, "Critter Costuming," there will be copies available at con. Cheaper than Amazon plus you can catch me and have me personally deface your copy! :)

Fun fun fun... Now back to the workroom...

I'd love to go but those purple space weasels not only ate my brain but ransacked my wallet as well.

I'll be there at least some of the time. bluerain has a table. I probably won't be there the whole weekend myself because the weekend after Rainfurrest I'm going out to eastern Washington to help with the Wild West Rally, and there are a few things I really should tend to on the car first. (Couldn't do them this weekend because the parts didn't arrive in time.)

EDIT: Just looked at a calendar and realized there's a whole 'nother weekend before the con. I was thinking it was this coming weekend, for some reason. I should have the car squared away before the con.

It's really tempting as it's a drive away, albeit a bloody long one. I'm just not sure cash wise since I just started a new job and money is tight. Transport and con are not an issue, just the hotel. $112 seems a bit pricy for a day rate by some other con standards. Plus I've no-one to share with that I'd not be paying for. :P

Saying that, I'm still vaguely considering it. I'd like to get up there.

Yeah, it's not great. There are a bunch of other hotels nearby (since it's near SeaTac). Hope to see you there if you can make it. If not, totally understand.

I'd give a small, but important piece of my anatomy to be there! (the left one) Sadly, it's not gonna happen. Still, I'd like to meet you in person for a change! We should talk shop!

Would definitely like to see you and chat. I don't think I've actually seen you in person since... like my first CF. Some con or other, I'm sure. (Going to FC?) No body parts required, either! Please!
