    What's on TV?

    OUAT started out good and then got tiring overall. When they concluded the run of most of the main actors, I stopped. I tried to watch with the new folks but couldn't get into it. Still love Regina though - she had great development and acting.

    7 shiny chikoritas, ~200 chikorita in general, and 5 mewtwos. The campus group was at minimum 30 people, probably more like 50. It was a bit nuts. Traded my super old Dragonaire and Kabutops for equivalents - due to their age, and lack of me having lucky pokemon, both became lucky on trading. Win win for me and my trading partner!

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    Pretty sure Sir Cyr is a Slytherin. Fine by me; I've always liked snakes (heck, I'm year of the snake too). Snakes are snuggle ropes.

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    Largely, not 100%. The Malfoys certainly tried to pay-to-win, if I remember right.

    Yeah but... I want all of them. *pouts*

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    Typically for academic posters, they're printed on a large sheet and rolled up for transit, then tacked to a board at the event. It lets you transport them in tubes, so they don't get squashed. It would take a carry-on unless you were clever, though. Or there could be a printing set-up in Texas. You are right, @OneBoot - it is more stuff to manage, and that is a nuisance. Definite downside. I think the benefit of this over just examples of the work at tables is that this opens more doors to asking questions. It is easy to look at a piece and go "whoa, that's cool!" and not know what to ask, or just ask "how'd ya do it?". Having pre-answered questions makes it easy to go "ooh, can you explain that specific step?" Seeing pictures, some folks already do this sort of thing. I saw pictures of Mori's paper on sculpting her figure, and Proctor had something on building the lion bust's base. Small versus big displays, I guess

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    @Morihalda - I don't do computer drawing, but wanted to throw together an elfin rough color plan for.... your bust. With 10 mins on the Paint app, here it is! Whatcha think? Autumn theme, with a just-off-human skin tone that veers into greens and almost oranges. Deep russet sort of clothing, like Elrond's coat (but textured differently). Brown-purple hair. Light color antlers, and the "base" as a light color wood. Oranges and pinks and purples for the flowers. Sortof has some symmetry going on, yeah?

    To make matters worse, Unown has 26 forms

    Ahh okay. They popped up on rare occasion as defenders in CO and here, but very seldom.
  10. Huh. You're right. They kinda do. Yeah, would have been nice to have a few arm swings in different directions. Nothing a xacto and glue can't fix though, right?
  11. It is smaller, but I kinda like it. It is more of a permanent tent now.

    Only if it is a mini version on a diorama of painted stuff, you do a demo, and have a step-by-step guide on doing it on a poster

    Actually, Guindyloo and Buglips also have a setup going for it with their jointly painted figures series.

    Unowns haven't ever been a gym option, sadly.

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    Whoops. I mean that people presenting in the session have a poster board or big printed poster, with a how-to on a favorite piece they did with lots of pictures on said poster. They stand at their poster and get questioned; they should have "the elevator schpeal" ready. It allows folks to kinda pick and choose short bursts of learning by wandering around and chatting. It would not be unlike a whole class presenting their high school science fair projects, but the instructors have the posters instead of students. Vertical layout means people can walk around the posters, or gather around a favorite. Sorry for bad flashbacks Anywhoooo... just a thought.
