ReaperCon 2014 - Day 1

Well, this is mostly day 1. I arrived on Wednesday and went to the meet and greet that was held at the Reaper facility. Good BBQ was provided. I helped with some of the setup at the hotel as well as making sure my vendors area was ready to go.

Up early on Thursday because I was hoping I would have vendors in to starting setup up. They did, eventually start wandering in. I spent my day keeping the vendors on task and working on my contest entry. I just figured out that I missed a detail and I'm not quite sure how to handle it right now so I'm going to sleep on it a bit and decide what to do with it tomorrow. Entries don't have to be in till 6pm so I have plenty of time to finish off this last detail. I may try to use the colors I used on the base and tie things together a bit more. I'll try and get a picture of her tomorrow before she goes in the competition.

  1. A couple people are chatting on the forums about what they're up to. Sounds like everyone is having a grand time. Good luck with getting your entry finished and looking forward to seeing her.

    1. The Dark Maiden will definitely be finished in time, I'll sit in the back corner of the room and no one will bother me! Everyone seems to be having a great time.
