When Barb came home, I told her. Her words to me were "well if anyone deserves something that nice, it's you".
I cried. I'm a pansy.
You know who you are. And I can't begin to thank you enough.
I've been tapped to do the facade design and construction this year for CONvergence. lio is taking some well-deserved time off of the cause, though I'd certainly welcome any time and energy he has to give. It's still in the conceptualization phase, but I have a pretty good idea of what I'd like to do.
The theme is Creature Feature.
So yeah. Kind of up my alley.
I will be needing help for some of the construction. I have in mind several props that go along with the theme, and I'll be having a few "building parties" starting sometime this winter, probably after the big holiday crunch. Most likely in the Big Basement of Doom (an annex of the Big Broken Box™), but possibly in other locations as needed.
As in years previous, I'd like to keep the design and concepts kind of hush-hush until the con. It's much more fun for the genpop when you see it for the first time and know nothing about it.
I will very likely be creating a filter for those of you here who are interested in helping out (and who can keep a secret) to try and coordinate as necessary. It will be a little tricky since some of the folks I've already tapped aren't LJ-enabled, but I think I can handle it somehow.
And now to plunge ahead with reckless abandon...
