Further Confusion is Coming! [Jan. 9th, 2005|06:10 pm]
Nicodemus
[Current Mood |anxiousanxious]

Further Confusion lumbers into view, as I desperately try to prepare everything in time... I'm fursuit track lead (my ever-capable second is uckticoonox), as well as running Iron Artist, improv, and other things... So, one at a time:

Iron Artist V

We are preparing to again search out furry artists capable of challenging our reigning Iron Artists! The returning artists, Marci McAdam, electricgecko(Ocelot), and the_gneech are a formidable bunch, though.

Chairman Seurat has selected a most delightful theme. It should be more managable and fun than last year's balloons... Though still not too easy for the artists. :) Anyone interested in signing up? I've just printed a bunch of signup forms and I'd hate for them to go to waste...

BTW, higginsdragon, I haven't heard back from you, yet. Will you be there to help out? We still need another judge (hint hint).


Fursuit Track

The fursuit track is packed with panels. We've got a lot of very talented costumers coming who have agreed to share their time and knowledge with everyone.

After much turmoil and shuffling, it does look like the event schedule has finally settled into place. (My sanity appreciates it.)


Critter Costuming Book

I'll be there with finished copies of my book. I'll be selling copies directly (and signing, if you like). There will also be some in the Dealers' Room on a friend's table. The con price is $30, which is still cheaper than Amazon.


Improv Workshop

The late-night improv workshop tradition continues. Will Nico lose his voice? Will Trey get hyped up on caffeine? Will Croc have his fantasy baseball mocked? Will we have fun long after we should've really gone to bed? You'll have to come and see!

The workshop has limited space. (Unfortunately. It's popular, the room is small, and there's only so many people we can handle.) Look for the signup sheet at the Information Desk (in the lobby near Registration). C'mon out and have some silly fun.


Friends of all stripes, spots, and coats

I know that this is the weekend where I have a chance to actually see furry friends from out of town. I also know that I usually end up running around the con going squeaking insane.

So if you do see me, and I'm not desperately rushing somewhere, do grab me and say hello! While I do enjoy running events (in that masochistic sort of way), I do also really like to talk with friends.


...four days and counting...

Oh, good, I was going to ask if Iron Artist was still happening, but that answers my question! :) Saturday night as always...?

As did we. :) I'm interested in hearing your thoughts, though.

This year, Iron Artist is right after the Masquerade. So the plan is that the Masq judges go off and confer while we launch into IA. When IA is over and the judges have marked their cards, there's usually an awkward pause while we add up points.

So our plan is to announce the Masq awards during the IA show while we're totalling the judges' score cards. That should give us enough "cover time" to follow up with the IA results and do our awards.

Because "savage badger" would be a great name for a rock band. [/davebarry]

Mmm, improv. You know, considering I've gone every year since 2000, I could probably even help run the darn thing one of these times. ;)

I'm glad you're so interested in the book! I hope it lives up to the expectations and proves a useful guide.

The book will be available on a half-table that is "Ibexa Press and Friends". Looking at the map, I think it's against the left wall as you enter the room. It should be right next to someone with a massage chair.

You can also buy the book directly from me (and I'll sign it, too!).

Re: Iron Artist

Signup forms for Iron Artist will be located at the Information Desk (which will be in the lobby, near Registration).

Complete the form and return it to the Info Desk. Challengers will be drawn randomly from all completed forms. The drawing is during the event, so there's no advance notice; show up in the audience and see if you get called.

Good luck!

Iron Artist is always great fun! I'm looking forward to watching it!

(And, as I said, I'm honored to be a spare judge, if you need me.)

Re: I want your book as well...

Sure thing! Catch me to buy a copy direct or you can find it in the Dealers Room. (Do you have a table in the Dealers Room? Maybe I should find you?)

I'm sure we can work something out! It's been awhile since I had a chance to chat with ya.

Of course, you could always stop by FC and watch me and Brian freaking out on caffeine, stress, and improv... No, wait, you've seen that many times before, haven't you? ;)

Further Confusion is this coming Thu-Mon at the Doubletree Hotel near San Jose airport. (You know, the BayCon hotel? That one.) Registration for Saturday (Iron Artist night) is $30. At-door registration for the full con is $50.

I'd be better watching Iron Artist than being in it, every medium used oddly seems to be one that I do work with a lot (balloons, body paint, icing even hehehe) so I'd better not tempt fate.

Oh and... *noogies a rat!*
