Is there an age limit for ReaperCon?

Recommended Posts

Okay Hopefully this is not a stupid question, but is there an age limit to attend ReaperCon? I have a 3 and 8 year old, and not sure how they would fare for 3-4 days:) I don't mind paying $50 each and getting their swag bags :rolleyes: But I know other cons (AX,comicon, E3) have an age limit, so IF I can swing going, I just wanna know if I'll have to have someone watch the boys:)

I do not work for Reaper, nor do I represent them in any way, so I can't quote policy at you...

I was surprised to see children at several Reapercons. Note that there is no day care provided, and you're expected to wrangle your own sprogs, but I can't see anyone sayin' boo unless they became unruly or destructive... or perhaps insufficiently supervised. An eight year old might well have fun, painting figures, playing with them, perhaps even involving in a game.

Dunno about a three year old.

But I have seen more than one stroller on the convention floor.

  1.  You must wear your badges at all times to be admitted to any convention function. Children under 10 do not require a badge, but cannot take classes, and may only participate in games with GM's permission and an attendant guardian.  Paint and Take events, when they occur, are open to attendees of all ages. Bear in mind that this is an event at which members of the general public are admitted, and we cannot be responsible for any new vocabulary children or adults may unfortunately acquire after exposure to our guests.

So from that Can I infer that the boys do not need to pay for 4 day or single passes?? Just the adults?

Correct. They are pretty much an extension of you while you are at the Con. Since I run games at the Con & I had a couple with a small child last year (younger then 3) & I really had no problem with having a little minion around & such.

I bring my daughter and do not have to pay for anything but the kids painting class she took. It was for 8+ and she was 6 last year but I wrote the instructor and showed the work she had done and got an OK to sign her up.

Your 3 and 8 year olds are welcome at the show and will not be charged any admission, provided proper supervision. Many attendees have precious and important models, lamps, tools, and personal items visible on their work areas, and we want no incidents involving tiny hands and damages or thefts (even the accidental "I picked it up because it was pretty" kind).

At the World Science Fiction Conventions the official name of that status is "Kid- in-Tow".  That is, the kids are welcome as long as you are keeping an eye on them all the time.

 

("In Tow" is a fuzzy concept, as I can recall being very pregnant and attempting to keep up with my little four-year-old gas molecule, who careened right into the arms of a startled but forgiving Terry Pratchett in one hallway)

I threw up on Hunter S. Thompson, once. Regrettably, I had no child to blame it on.

I've gawked and stared at Kevin Anderson. His assistant kept waving at me to come say hello, and he was just like "come say hello!" Then I had a panic attack and walked away.

 

@_@ yup.

Although, in all fairness, he threw up on me first.

Remind me /never/ to throw up on you. Or around you. Or ... anywhere in your general vicinity, really.

      So, I'm working on the Reapercon 2017 Sophie. I want to paint her to competition level, or at least to the best of my ability. I've already decided several things about her color scheme. 
       
      Her dragon mate is going to be a gold dragon. This is to emphasize my primary choice for her wings and clothes, purple. Her skin is going to be utilizing the golden skin triad. The ground is going to be a red brick, going with the brick carved for it. 
       
      So, here's this far. At this point, I'm blocking in primary colors for the base, since Sophie blocks several parts of the base once she's added.
       

       
      Advice as I go along would be appreciated. I'm going to try to update this with each step. Colors used:
      -09074 Palomino Gold to basecoat the dragon
      -09401 Dragon Red to basecoat the ground

      Hey, @ub3r_n3rd, here's the figure that I managed to finish. The top clear coat makes it a bit shiny, but I've got it under harsh lights.
       

       
      With the very zoomed in picture I'm not exactly happy with the shading on the right hand side where it transitions from light to dark in the middle fold, but that was vexing me for a long time. It's the way I want it to look, but I'm not sure everybody's eye will interpret the shape that I wanted to illustrate. There's also a woodgrain painted on the bow, but it is very subtle and doesn't look to show up here. I guess that should have been something a bit more stark.
       
      Really feel that she's missing an arrow in her hand, since she seems to want to be nocking an arrow, but there's nothing there. Need to work on my eyes for the next figure, but that's a common refrain.
