So, what have I been doing since Anime Expo? Well, right now I'm putting the Fan Gallery into order, so it can be taken to denvention3. And we're in high season as far as convention postcards are concerned -- the animelosangeles postcards have been mailed, loscon has their postcards, and the Gallifrey One postcards (doctorwho convention) are due here from the printers any day. And then in the next a month or two we've got another round for all three conventions, and possibly a Westercon too.
( Lynn and I have been airing out a bunch of boxes of stuff, one piece at a time...Collapse )
( At work, that project that's sent me to Indianapolis and San Luis Obispo (and even San Francisco recently) is coming to a head...Collapse )
( In conventions that I will be attending, I've got three coming up in August, all very different...Collapse )
Busy busy busy. Haven't done much work lately on the costume_con photos -- I'm hoping that I can dump all of them in place shortly and come back to the captioning later. I've set that as the project to get past before I upload more of my own photos to my own website, which is why you haven't seen any Hazel's Picture Gallery updates here.
In other news, missmea is still in North Carolina, having adventures. She'll be back sometime this summer. Probably spend some time sleeping on the couch here -- her old room's not available, and she has no apartment anymore. She doesn't like Orange County, though, so she'll be powerfully motivated to find a job and a place.
( Oh and for those of you who follow the anime convention circuit, some odd news...Collapse )
On the ribbon front, I'm probably done with accepting orders from people who don't read my ribbons mailing list or even my Ribbon Resources page. Grrr. Argghh. At least the last person to ask "Is it too late for ribbons for Denvention" was a week ago. If you'd read the mailing list you'd know when the orders go in... Incidentally, if you're running a convention, I've got some "stock ribbons" I'd like to send your way. I'll cut you a deal. I want to use up the ones I have, so I can change color schemes when I reprint them.
And are the Tulsa fans crazy? Conestoga, the annual sci-fi convention, just a week before their new "Tokyo in Tulsa" convention? Ease up, you guys, put a bit of a gap in there! And good luck, wish I could see y'all this summer.
EDIT: Oh yeah, there was an earthquake with epicenter just 5 miles from Lynn's library. It was just in the 5's, though... wake me up when you've got a 6 or a 7 richter for us.
