To-Do List (last updated May 1, 2014)
Frequently Asked Questions (last updated September 24, 2013)

Work progresses on the epilogue to Trials of the Flesh.  No idea when it'll be done.  Once it's finished and posted, though, I'm rather looking forward to the next project... :evillaugh:

Still trying to get things made for the table at Fandemonium.  I've already nixed some of the things I wanted to make from my list because they're proving too complicated to make -- the insignia for the Galactic Empire, for example, is proving tricky to sculpt without making it look like a shapeless blob.  :giggle:  I'll get pictures of things and post them here before we actually start selling.

Sadly, it appears I may not get to attend much of the actual convention this year, except for events that run after the Artist Alley closes at 6 PM every night.  My sister still has her kids to look after, after all, and both she and her husband have several events they really want to attend.  So it may be that this convention ends up with me trapped behind the table while Sister and Brother-In-Law (and any of their kids they decide to bring with them) go experience the con in my place.  I know, I signed up for the table and should be responsible for it, but at the same time, I signed up with the understanding that we would split the responsibility of the table.  She's told me that if there's a panel or event I really want to attend, that she'll man the table while I attend it... but somehow I don't see that happening.

Bleh.  I'm a pessimist, aren't I?  At least I'm not the only one who's annoyed about the upcoming convention -- my mom's not too thrilled about playing babysitter for three whole days.  At least we can gripe together after the con's over.  :giggle:

In more positive con news, registration went live yesterday for TFCon!  :w00t:

I think the BotCon folks could take a page out of the TFCon folks' book -- the TFCon website actually posted an announcement on their page and on FB that stated what day and time registration would go up.  That at least gave people advance warning.  BotCon tends to like to spring the day and time on people without warning.  :XD:  Though weirdly enough, the patron computers at work block the TFCon site for some reason, so I had to sneak on and register at my work computer. 

Tickets for TFCon are cheaper too, I'm noticing.  The most expensive package, which comes with full admission, a lanyard and exclusive comic, and three exclusive toys, is $250, which is still expensive but not as bad as BotCon's $300-400 price tag.  I ended up going for the package that was a step down -- everything but the exclusive toys for $50, plus a T-shirt for an extra $25 or so.  I know, shame on me for not getting the toys, but I'm running out of shelf space...

Got the ticket, the hotel room, and the costume... now I need to see about airfare.  Will probably wait a few weeks on that -- I'm told airfare's cheapest if you buy the ticket about six weeks before you intend to fly.  And need to decide if I'm getting roommates for my room or not...

Okay, eight songs went unguessed on the last song meme.  Reposting with the artist's name, and seeing if anyone can guess titles.

1.  Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don't believe the church and state
And everything they tell you
Believe in me -- I'm with the high command
Mike + the Mechanics

4.  Deep into the dying day
I took a step outside an innocent heart
Prepare to hate me, fall when I may
This night will hurt you like never before
Nightwish

5.  I moved out to Langley recently
With a plain and simple dream
Wanna infiltrate some third-world state
And topple their regime
Those men in black with their matching suitcases
Where everything's on a need-to-know-basis

"Party in the CIA" by "Weird" Al Yankovic
Guessed by :iconkara90051:

8.  Don't give up, it's just the weight of the world
When you're heart's heavy
I, I will lift it for you
Don't give up, because you want to be heard
If silence keeps you
I, I will break it for you

"You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)" by Josh Groban
Guessed by :iconchimeradragonfang:

11.  Blame it all on my roots
I showed up in boots
And ruined your black-tie affair
The last one to know
The last one to show
I was the last one you thought you'd see there
Garth Brooks

13.  Don't wish it away
Don't look at it like it's forever
Between you and me, I can honestly say
That things can only get better
Elton John

15.  It's poetry in motion
She turned her tender eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Thomas Dolby

18.  You and I in a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got
Set them free at break of dawn
'Til one by one, they were gone...
Nena

Hasbro has come out with its own, much-hyped Windblade character. Should I retcon and change the name of my own Windblade OC (Glory's creator)?

Saw HTTYD 2 tonight and it was amazing. Do yourself a favor and see it in the theater - it's gorgeous and that soundtrack deserves theater-quality speakers.

Do let me know once you've seen it - I can't wait to hear what you think of the ending!

Going to see the new How to Train Your Dragon movie? I'm going this weekend (as a reward for working some crazy hours) and promise not to spoil anything!

Probably not for awhile, sadly.  Hoping to soon!

I did hear that the Make-A-Wish Foundation got Dreamworks to air the film early in one theater here for a little boy with brain cancer who loved dragons... that was sweet, I think.  :)
