Had a really great convention this year; sold some art, saw lots of old friends, made new friends, and got to parade around in costume for hours at a time. I even came in way under budget – I think I made more than I spent for once.

I even got climbed on by a lemur:

Lemur 05

The whole set of Conestoga pictures is here on Flickr, if you care to see them. You can also view them as a slideshow.

For now, some highlights!

Wenches 08

That's me and [livejournal.com profile] bat_cheva, [livejournal.com profile] apocalypticbob, and [livejournal.com profile] celticmistress.

Gimme more! )

Again, go take a look at the whole set. It's great fun.

Let's see . . . hmm . . . this week was lousy, leavened by a pretty wolfie postcard from [livejournal.com profile] northatlantic -- thank you! -- and some bonus HARD to find BPAL from [livejournal.com profile] topknot -- EEEEEEEEEEEE! -- and a badass movie. Yes, FYI, Transformers kicks robot ass, and that's coming from someone who actively hated the cartoon.

Most of the suck has been of the lycanthropic variety -- the worst part about being bipolar is that you can't control your state of mind, so you it's perfectly possible to find yourself in a black, suicidal depression even if there's nothing to be depressed over. And it doesn't matter that you know it's only your lycanthropy doing this to you, it still sucks and hurts and is really freaking scary sometimes.

THAT'S WHY I AM ON MEDICATION. And thank the Powers that Be for that.

The rest of the suck was scrambling to get ready for the art show this weekend, and only finishing one out of four projects I'd wanted to finish before deadline. BUT. I got enough done, and put my art up, and nothing exploded or fell to pieces or caused innocent people to die, so it's all good, and things have been pretty smooth sailing.

The convention itself is over tomorrow, and I weep, for there has been much fun, and much boobage, with me, [livejournal.com profile] bat_cheva who is making sure the art show runs along like a well-oiled ponyboy, [livejournal.com profile] apocalypticbob who brought me more highly-sought and freakin' discontinued BPAL-age as well as the CUTEST EMBROIDERD JOLLY ROGER BELT POUCH which I will post a picture of as soon as I get one, and the lovely [livejournal.com profile] celticmistress, who also brought me a gorgeous dress and a sari and is definitely just a cool chick to hang around with despite being so very much taller and more impressive than me and I wish she lived way closer because she's hilarious, and we are all TOTAL FOXES. We are a troublemaking group, I will tell you that for nothing. I swear, all we talk about are tits (thank you for the cutlet, [livejournal.com profile] celticmistress). And just between us, we have about all the tits and ass and attitude you could ever, ever need (except for me, who needed that cutlet to keep from looking lopsided, hah). We also all have better hair than you would believe.

Anyway, I have pictures. With cleavage in. So y'all will be getting special fun-time treats.

Right now I'm dead-dog tired, and am about to fix a sandwich, settle in with the final installment of Harry Potter, and chill the fuck out for a while. I just wanted to let you know that I miss you all, and will be back soon. I am having the best time, and I really, really needed it.

Oh, hell. Here. For now, one picture:

Lady Peril in Red Pants

Last night, and Lady Peril was very happy in her red pants. That's a silly little smile for you.

Love you all, my little undead monkeys! I'm off for some ham and cheese and some J. K. Rowling. Catch you tomorrow after the dead dog party!

Thought I'd show you what I've been up to the past few weeks. Here's a new box with a new twist; I used acrylic gems on this one to give it some pizazz, and boy did it work!

This is Red Phoenix, the first in a group of firebird boxes I'm doing for the convention art show next month.

This, and the others I'll be posting over the next few weeks, is not for sale at this time, but it will be up for grabs at Conestoga 11 in the Art Show. Also, if these don't sell at the convention I'll be eBaying them, so if you're looking to buy one you might want to start putting money back now. Odds are several will end up on eBay, since I rarely sell more than a couple at the convention.

Red Phoenix 01

There's the top, bling flashing.

Red Phoenix 02

The front is nice and dramatic, don't you think?

Red Phoenix 03

I love the play between the red and the gold.

Red Phoenix 04

It really does seem to glow.

Red Phoenix 05

A slightly better look at the side.

Red Phoenix 06

And the box, opened. This one has been customized for BPAL, the removable plastic grid holds perfume samples upright.

Red Phoenix 07

The back.

Red Phoenix 08

I've said it before; the bottom always winds up the most beautiful.

Again, this piece will be for sale at Conestoga 11, and if it doesn't sell there, it'll go to eBay.

I'm off now to start work on a couple of others, and finish the second in this series. Wish me luck!

Hey, fans!

If you're in the Oklahoma area, or if you will be here 'round about the 20th to the 22nd of July, you might consider dropping in on [livejournal.com profile] sargon999 and I at Conestoga 11.

For those of you who would like to come, but lack the entry fee, I have good news! We need volunteers. Seriously. More info is here, and you don't even have to have experience. If you volunteer, you get in for the staff rate of $10. Cool, huh?

Laurell K. Hamilton is our author guest of honor, John Picacio is our artist. Eric Flint will also be there, Elizabeth Moon, Suzette Haden Elgin, Robin Wayne Bailey, Glen Cook . . . oh, hell. Just look at the guest list!

Conestoga is primarily a fantasy/science fiction-oriented convention; the programming features panels on everything from writing to publishing to promotion. This year, with the redoubtable Hamilton on our roster, there's an emphasis on horror as well. Whether you're a writer or a reader, there's a lot to love here. We're a fun little convention, very friendly, and there's a lot of access to the guests on site, even outside of panels.

We're also having a Harry Potter release party, birds of prey demonstrations by the Royal Gauntlet, and a visit from the critters at Safari's Sanctuary. Oh, and those Bedlam Bards guys will probably be ogling my cleavage, too.

I'll be there all weekend, mostly helping out in the art room. Provided I can come up with a few more pieces between now and then, my art will be on display, and I'm definitely planning to donate an item to the charity auction, which will benefit Safari's Sanctuary, this year's charity. I think that's pretty darn cool.

The Conestoga tee shirt (pre-order by June 9!) is pretty darn cool as well. Okie the penguin is looking smart as Bram Stokie, in art by Randy Farran. Come on, you know you want one!

If you purchase a golden ticket membership (info available here), you will automatically receive a tote bag and a longsleeve denim shirt with the logo embroidered on the breast. I did the art for those, seen below.

Con 11 Sm
The art for the golden ticket shirt; this will be embroidered on the breast of a denim longsleeve.

Con11 Lg
The art for the golden ticket tote bag, which will feature the convention's name and the words "Love Bites" underneath.

I really, really want to see some friendly faces there – I'd love for folks to come up and introduce themselves. So don't be strangers!
