I will be a guest at the Mysticon convention this weekend (with Guest of Honor George R.R. Martin). My work will be in the Art Show and I will be on the following panels:
How to Rock the Masquerade (Friday 3pm): Sit down and learn from some Masquerade veterans. They will give you some pointers on how to work your costume in a masquerade and gain the attention and adoration of the judges. With Anita Allen, Heidi Hooper, Mark MacDicken, Sarah Oliver and Matthew Penick
Opening ceremonies (Friday 4 pm): In which the Guests are introduced
The Future of Professional Artists (Friday 5 pm): The days of the healthy living from paperback cover commissions are gone. As professional artists sustain their careers by diversifying, selling directly through their websites and crowdsourcing their personal projects… what does the future hold? With Seth Banner, Shawn Durington, Heidi Hooper, Ben Mirabelli, Nathan Skreslet and JP Targete
Iron Costumer (Friday 8:30pm): Iron Costumer: Three Master Costumers will be given a time limit and a theme, they will pull in people from the audience to help them assemble a new costume. They must use the secret ingredient in each part of their costume in order to win the title of Iron Costumer! The costumes will be auctioned off in the charity auction! Participants should bring supplies with them for the creation of the costume. The “secret ingredient” will be supplied by the convention. With Heidi Hooper, Angela Pritchett and Sue Ann Ziegler
Masquerade (Saturday 7 pm): Love costumes? Be prepared to be dazzled by the incredible costumes made by fellow con-goers! Doctor Who Trivia during intermission! With Davey Beauchamp, Anita Bruckert, Billy Flynn, Heidi Hooper, Drew Meyer, Sarah Oliver, Angela Pritchett and Rich Sigfrit
I hope to see you there!
