I will be costuming at night during DragonCon! Most likely at night since i need to sell my work at my dealers table during the day. No i will not sell work in costume, sorry! People just don’t buy monsters from monsters i don’t know why.
I’m probably going to be around the Pulse bar in the Marriott since that seemed like the place to be for costume pics and interactions. The dealers room closes at 7pm all weekend and ill need to eat and suit up afterwards… so im hoping ill be in costume around 9pm. Costume will happen Friday Saturday and Sunday night.
You can also follow my twitter for updates! I’ll tweet when im on the way out in costume! See you there! :D
Why masks are limited edition + why i wont remake 'em no matter how nice you ask :)
I have the answer in my store/FB/etsy/deviant art about + policy pages but i get asked to remake old masks at least once or twice every day. Masks are made in limited numbers. Once they are gone, they are gone. I discontinue masks because i dont want to make the same piece over and over for months or years. I want to constantly improve what i do… doing the same design indefinitely leads to stagnation and boredom. This also benefits the customer since your piece is not mass produced and with luck, may be worth more someday :) Please keep this in mind before asking me to remake you an old design!
“We don’t lift weights in order to look hot, especially for the likes of men like that. What makes them think that we even WANT them to find us attractive? If you do, thanks very much, we’re flattered. But if you don’t, why do you really need to voice this opinion in the first place, and what makes you think we actually give a toss that you, personally, do not find us attractive? What do you want us to do? Shall we stop weightlifting, amend our diet in order to completely get rid of our ‘manly’ muscles, and become housewives in the sheer hope that one day you will look more favourably upon us and we might actually have a shot with you?! Cause you are clearly the kindest, most attractive type of man to grace the earth with your presence.”—
