I’m not sure I’ll be able to attend Dragon*Con this year – I’ve been wanting to go for a really long time, but have never been able to make it to Atlanta to attend. This year, when I’m actually living in Atlanta, I can’t afford to go. Oh, life.
I’m glad that the convention happens here, because from everything I hear it is one of the biggest, best, most incredible conventions for gaming, fantasy, sci-fi, etc that you could imagine. Thousands of people flock to Atlanta every year just for a chance to attend Dragon*con, and who can blame them? I have heard from some friends of my wife’s that they attend every year and just walk around in costume to see everything and everyone. I’m not sure they even buy tickets or passes. If that’s the case, I may try something similar, and attend without attending anything.
I feel that a lot of the products I make for my Etsy store would work really well for convention attendees – particularly the dice bags. I make each one with a belt loop, so that you can carry them around without having to hold them or store them in other bags/pouches. The double drawstring lends itself to a tight closure, which I feel is important – it not only keeps your dice safe, but also your other small change and loose items. I have a variety of colors, but would be very open to custom choices – just talk to me! If anyone is interested, email me at greylikestorms(at)gmail.com or convo me on Etsy to discuss other fabrics. It’s not too late to get your stuff in time for Dragon*con, and I’m always happy to use a faster service than USPS.
I’ve also got a costume shirt listed that I feel is timeless enough to work for a variety of costumes, ranging from the late Renaissance to the early 20th century. Steampunk, anyone?
