Hello lovely people. Does any one have any pictures of my costume from the weekend? She looks just like this:

Even crappy pictures with me lurking in the background!
Feel free to leave me a shout on my FA page!

As long as venue exclusivity really means exclusivity this time, it'll be awesome :D We don't want people walking in on the art auction again...

Dealers Den & Art Auction / Auction: Handling of Artwork
« on: August 14, 2011, 21:36:08 »
Hello all. Just wanted to commend you guys in the auction team for a great con this year. This con gets better every year.
However, one thing that irked me was that the work I had put into the artshow and auction (and by the looks of it, everyone else's pieces) had been removed from their protective covers/archival bags. I had to pester for the chance to collect these that had been put into a bin-bag.
I can understand why these may have been removed. Sometimes they can make it hard to see the artwork within. However, it protects art from greasy fingers, pens and sneezes. And general wear and tear.
These bags are also not cheap, and ones of specific size (like the ones I had to collect this year) are hard to come by, and fit specific mount-boards.

tl:dr the benefits of artwork in archival bags outweighs the negatives. Please don't remove them next time :(

Yeah, Jencen is right. If you're doing it yourself, use good photo paper etc. Check your local PC and printing places for offers on paper (Got some cheap HP Premium stuff from PC world last year)
I went to Staples last year to do some portfolio printing, and it was exactly the same quality as doing it myself at home. I'd only use them again if I wanted to go bigger than A4.
My old university print shop is great though; they print it on nice card for a fraction of the price of Staples.
In other words, shop around! Even those little Kodak Kiosks do nice prints.

Hey Bruno :D this year was my first furry-anything too, and I've had a terrific time. Hope you come next year!

Are you worried about paying for it in a financial sence? Save up! It's worth it.

To be honest, I wasn't thinking about the art show very much, but I was encouraged by the friend I'm staying with for AC in July.
I would have registered if I knew at this stage what I was going to take or how to display it...

All right! Tomorrow, I'll commit and register. It can't hurt. I'll try and guess how much space I might need.

Do you want the donation on the day, or beforehand?

One person register? D'oh!
In that case, I will try and put together some works over May to bring along. I've been too busy to worry about registering, and wasn't going to bother, but this works in my favour. Thanks Cosmo!

Yes, of course, Furc! Wow. I've just popped back on there to keep my characters from running out. I'd love to return soon.

I'm fine thank you :D

Hello everyone! My name's Holly and I just confirmed my place this weekend! Hooray!
Just a little about me; I'm coming all the way from Huddersfield to stay for the whole weekend in the hostel. I'm an artist and you can see my work here: or

I think that's it. I haven't got much else to say at this time!
Oh, and I'm also going to be at AC09 too!
