    well, Who wants to go en-mass over to Free Play on Thursday or Friday night?

    Im not sure what that is but it sounds fun depending on what's out me and the wife plan on visiting the Alamo draft house that's RIGHT next to the hotel

  2. Thought I would make a post people could look at with a list of places to eat in case anyone wanted the information.  Last year we had food from a place called The Fat Shack it was really good and they deliver to the hotel through doordash until about 2am.  There is a pizza place called Double Daves that also delivers to the hotel and they were excellent then there's barley and board which is fairly close as well as an in and out burger.  These are the places me and the wife ate last year all were wonderful and reasonable, if anyone would like to add anything different to the list feel free I hope this helps!

    Don't forget the hotel has a pretty nice pool, whether you like to swim or just want a quiet place to relax.  I took one afternoon off and just hung out there.  There is an indoor and an outdoor version. 

     

    Oh yes I will be spending much time at the pool there is also usually a gathering of con goers at night around the fire pit it's pretty fun and shouldn't be missed great way to meet everyone

It's a great time nothing like it! Are you staying at the hotel?

  9. So last year I forget who coordinated it but we had a forum get together dinner that Sunday evening of the con. I would like to throw my hat in this year to help with it.  I love doing research and finding restaurants lol.  If you did it last year and want help totally message me!

    IIRC, Hangar 18 usually carries da Vinci brushes, which I consider the equal of the W&Ns*. I don't recall seeing W&N S7 brushes, but I wasn't really looking so it's certainly possible.

     

    * Raphael, da Vinci, and W&N Kolinsky sable brushes are usually thought to be very comparable -- that's certainly been my experience. Some people include Rosemary and Co. brushes in that grouping, but I haven't tried them to be able to say. But each brush company's premiere line does have a slightly different feel (more or less snap, bigger or smaller belly for a given length of hairs, whatever).

    Thank you I asked for those cause it was the only ones I knew of so anything comparable is just fine thank you!

    my class should be beginner friendly, but it's not on saturday. i'll be doing my dragon painting class again

    Im hoping growtix is better this year and we are able to snag some classes even if it's beginner ones.

     

    We just ordered our tickets and are excited! Does anyone know if there's a booth or company at the con that sells Windsor and newton series 7 brushes?

    Does anyone recall or know if the scheduled games have an admission cost? 

     

    No cost as fast as I recall and we played in one of the dreadmere games that was part of the reapercon story

    Latest semi-official or wild guess date for registration to open?

    If I remember correctly I bought mine last year round about the end of may early June? They had already been on sale a few weeks before hand (correct me if i'm grievously incorrect) there should be plenty of time for you to get them

    There is a pit, tho I feel it isn’t as good as the Garden Inn. 

     

    However, they had a happy hour after five that provided free beer. So perhaps dangle that.

    To be exact it's from 530-730 aaaaaaaand it's not just beer but also any mixed drinks with just 2 ingredients like whiskey and coke or gin and cran....I made sure to do the research....lol

    I like it so far!

    Maybe try to blend those colours were they meet for smoother transitions.

    But this is a great pattern!

    Once I put the highlights on I was planning on putting a glaze over it all in hopes it'll smooth out the blends and transitions

    It is! :) Talin gave me a sneak peek of this very picture at Reapercon last year (and we both agreed that this version wasn't quite as cosplay friendly lol, but still very awesome). If I'm able to attend this year, I plan to go as Wild West Sophie from a few years ago. I've already found a pair of feathered wings on ebay that should do nicely (as in they look pretty close and aren't too big).

     

    Huzzah!

    --OneBoot :D

    Wait as in the miniature? Cause that's what I was meaning if so awwwww man i'm getting 50

    I'm doing quite well.  I just looked and I did get your PM but somehow never replied.  Bad Dilvish! Bad!  No cookie for you!

     

    I'm not on the forums as much lately as they blocked them from work, so I only get on when I'm not busy at home or from my phone: and if you read any of the posts from my phone keyboard, you'll realize whiy don't post from my phone much (I have fat thumbs).

     

    I just texted George the other week.  He has been going through some stuff.  He let me know that things were getting better, but that it is unlikely that he will be making RCon this year.  I told him that he will be missed.

     

    I however am still intending of going this year.  Right now, we are just figuring out if Awesome Wife will be attending as well.  She's started playing DnD and has ordered a mini to paint so after 20+ years of marriage I appear to have Stockholm Syndromed her into becoming a gamer.  Biggest road block is that the school year usually starts the week before Labor Day so we would have to figure things out with the kids.

    Its no biggie I know how things get and i'm truly sad to hear George won't be able to make it he took us under his wing and showed us the ropes our first time last year, he will definitely be missed. I am glad though to hear he's doing better and that you should still be able to make it. Congrats on the new convert lol! It's good to hear from you
