RAVAGER tutorial

I finally got around to making a bit of a tutorial for the RAVAGER costume I made for Jill "the Nerdy Bird" for the 2010 Comic Con in San Diego. Since I'm trying to migrate everything over to my new site, the whole article is there. I'd love to figure out how to get my old entries from blogger converted to wordpress but since nothing works as it should in wordpress, I will probably have to copy and paste each entry.

Baltimore Con Recap & Studio Update

I'm still recovering from the 2010 Baltimore Comic Con. This show is known as being one of the best COMIC cons because it's devoid of the Hollywood entrapment, video gaming demos, and D-list celebrities. The main hall which I only ran across but never explored, was a huge space for vendors. The placement of artists at the perimeter of it was a good idea on paper, but from what I hear, it wasn't productive. The center area for Creator Guests and the Artists' Alley itself were nicely organized and had plenty of traffic. Some photos are on flickr and more on Facebook. The rest of my recap is at my site.

Best of all, I was able to help Stacy from Comic Fusion to collect artwork donations for Wonder Woman Day which is Oct 23-24 at our store.

I really want to create a new outfit for NYCC but I only have a month and no equipment at the moment. Everything is still in boxes and the room is still being painted. I know Firestar will be back because it was requested by my friends at the SCF for our Women of Marvel photoshoot. I'll also be spending some of my time at the Toonseum booth to promote the cartoon and comics museum of Pittsburgh.With any luck, I will also get to spend more time Jill the Nerdy Bird and finally meet up with the Geek Girls Network and Kirby Krackle. *fingerscrossed*

But before NYCC is the fall sale of Wild Pig Comics on Sept 18-19 in Springfield, NJ at the Holiday Inn. Incredible deals on trades and lots of dollar bins.
