[SPLIT] RC2017 Rides thread

38 posts in this topic

I booked tickets last night, so I guess my husband and I are committed to coming!  We're renting a car, arriving at DFW airport around 6pm on Thursday.  Our flight leaves at 7pm on Sunday, so we will be aiming to arrive at car-rental return around 4:30.  We're traveling with our infant son but could provide a ride to at least one other person (two if traveling light, luggage space may be an issue with the stroller).  We'll probably be going back and forth to the hotel multiple times per day to accommodate baby naps as well.  Message me if you might need a ride to/from the airport at those times!

It looks like I might be driving to the Con. Anyone want to get Louisville and carpool with me on the way down? 

 

Or anyone in the Southeast US want to meet up in a location (Say Knoxville for instance) and car pool over to Dallas? 

 

I like to drive, and 12 hours is just starting to be a long drive for me. 

 

Let ent me know if this interests anyone. I have a new and comfy Cmax.

A 12 hour drive would be great!  I have to settle for 20ish.  But I like driving also.

Well it's a five hour down from Detroit to here, and then we could head out together in the morning. :lol:

I could offer the same, but that would really only help anyone on I-20 between Tyler and Dallas... though, I can go through Bugscuffle, Arp, La Poyner or any of 100 other small towns in East Texas if that helps (meaning I-20 or 175).  I guess if someone wanted to go the long way from Houston we could meet as well... and as soon as I know when Ub3r is landing, I can backtrack times and work it out...

Yeah, pretty much.  I wouldn't call it a town exactly.  More like a crossing that has a hotel out in the middle of some scary woods...

      I'm not sure how here reads Figure Painter Magazine, but for those interested, there is a nice write-up on ReaperCon 2016 in the current issue (#44).
       
      This issue also contains an interview with Marike Reimer.  Worth the read.

      There has been some talk on the boards of people's costumes, the wearing of them and how they change things and what people are working on.
       
      So I'd like to throw open the question, What is your costume?
       
      It can be any approach.  Are you working on one now?  Are you a fan who appreciates them but doesn't make them?  Do you have a favorite costume?  Do you have favorite memories of one?  Do you like realism, or abstraction, history, sci fi, or fantasy?  Does costuming connect to your gaming or other hobbies?  When and where do you wear costumes?  Are you making something for another person?  Or for a doll maybe?  What's your favorite one you've seen?  What would you make if you had the materials and time?

      I'll start.
       
      I have a reproduction late-eighteenth century dress in a big floral print in shades of red and blue on white, complete with undergarments, big pockets, mitts, a ruffled cap, and cocked hat that I had been wearing to our neighborhood's annual Fourth of July parade.  
       
      But I've been feeling weirder about it in the last few years since late eighteenth century dress has become political in a direction I am not.
       
      So I've found myself turning towards the struggles of the Suffragists a century ago.  I've been reading old mail order catalogues from the First World War and checking out the eminently practical suits women wore at the time -- big pockets everywhere!
       
      At this point I have plans for nearly everything except a suit.  I have undergear and petticoats, a blouse, nearly acceptable shoes, hats to be modified, a good pattern for spats, and a pageant-style banner edged with green and purple ribbon* ready to be painted front and back with "Votes for Women".
       
      At this point it would be nice to make a historically accurate suit, but looking at what I have, I think it would be a fairly convincing impression with any reasonably matched jacket and calf-length skirt.
       
       
       
       
      *Those are the colors of the English suffragists, not the US ones, but I'm okay with that.

      This was a promo mini I got at ReaperCon 2016 from the swag bag.  He's from Endless Fantasy Tactics.  Had him sitting primed, ready to go for a bit now.  Goal: get something painted and done without worrying too much since this week was stressful.
       

       
      I picked up the backdrop at the same con from Hangar 18.

      I know it is early days, but for those of you plan on coming to ReaperCon from outside the USA, don't forget to check your passports are up to date for next October......
       
      This has been a public service announcement from your Friendly Neighborhood Drow.....

      Hello again, everyone!  It's been a little while, but I finally have another mini to show off!  If you're curious, you can check out her work-in-progress thread here.
       
      I had an absolute heart attack right as I was putting the finishing touches on the mini:  I almost dropped her!  I ended up catching her against my box of bases at the last second, but the force actually bent the barrel of her rifle, and cracked the paint!  I think I was able to straighten it out, and there did not appear to be any chipped paint, so hopefully I am in the clear, but my heart probably just died a little...  
       
      Originally, I tried to modify her to make her more of a werewolf hunter and wanted to put her on an elaborate base, but somehow that never quite came together.  In the end, she just looks like a more modern Western-themed mini.
       
      Anyway, without any further ado, here she is!
       




       
      Thanks a bunch for looking, and I hope you like here!
