So RMFC is this weekend
And asdfghjkl I'm not ready! Ak! It came too fast once again that's for sure. I thought I'd go ahead and post up the traditional con meme as well as my panel schedule so those of you who are attending know what to look forward to. Rocky Mountain Fur Con is August 10-12 at the Denver DoubleTree Hotel.
First off I will have table space in the dealer's den once again this year. I will be stuck there most of the time at table #36 and would love for all of you to come by! I'm in the middle of the room and sitting next to my good friends =FireMaster13 and ~THODRAGONFIRE/~redvarg with ~Lrdkazul across from us. I will not be wearing a full costume this year because Shadow Lugia is still in torn-up pieces and Theod is nowhere near done. Very likely he will not be done by September for NDK either. However I will be bringing some of the pieces I do have so you can see him as a WIP at my table. I will get up and walk around in my digitigrade stilts from time to time and it should be pretty obvious when I do so. I'll try to do a lap around the con each day hoping that most people get a chance to see them. Otherwise just come over to the table and ask to take a look. You can likely find me wearing my Shadow Lugia hoodie, Riley the German Shepherd Dog fleece hat, and possibly the Necomimi animatronic ears for the lawls.
I am hosting 3 panels this year at the convention, so I'll have my work cut out for me. The first one is "Beginner Creature Costuming" hosted by myself and ~sgtknifeman. This is our modified/updated panel that is currently found on my YouTube and it will discuss the basics of getting into building costumes for non-human cosplays and characters. We'll be going over concept design, materials/tools, building tips, a project walkthrough, safety and performance. This will be held Friday at 9:30pm in the Crystal 2 room
The second panel ~sgtknifeman and I are hosting is "Advanced Creature Costuming" which is a continuation of our first panel that goes into more involved techniques. We highly recommend attending our beginner panel first or have some prior experience building costumes. We'll be going over sculpting, molding, and casting, a project walkthrough of making a resin mask, moving jaws, body padding, and basic electronics. This will be held Saturday at 6:30pm in the Crystal 2 room
The last panel that I will be doing is "Getting Animated!" where I get to talk about the art of animation! I'll be going over the origins and history, different kinds of animation, tools and techniques, and most importantly give an overview on the 12 principals of animation. This will be held Sunday at 5:30pm in the Crystal 1 room
