TimeGate 2008

 | May 26, 2008 3:01 pm

We just got back from TimeGate 2008 here in Atlanta, Ga.  This was their first year with a full con.  The past two years it has been a one day event at a local lodge.  This year they broke the mole and went for a full 4 day con, taking advantage of Memorial Day.  Overall it was a good little con.  We are not huge Dr. Who or Stargate fans, so during the day it got a little dull for us, but I can’t complain about anything at this con.  Registration was great, there were loads of panels, the video room was always running and there were a few parties as well.  The con suite should get some major praise due to the work of Terresa and her team.  Only recommendation I could make would be to show the original Stargate movie sometime during the weekend.

Pictures are in the Events section here.

OmegaCon

 | March 7, 2008 6:50 pm

We’ll be heading out to Alabama for OmegaCon the weekend of March 15th. It is the first year for this new con so we are really hoping it goes off really well. They appear to have had a few issues with guests, but that is to be understood the first year round. Look for a report and photos after we get back. If you’re going to be there, be on the lookout for Deatheaters, Dr. Steel Toy Soldiers, and maybe even a little Naruto.

Just posted pictures from Chattacon 2008 and Atlanta Comics Expo in the Gallery.  Just click on the “View Gallery” link under the photo on the right menu bar and look under the Events section.  Sorry for the delay, but we had some website hosting issues that are now resolved.

Atlanta Comics Expo 2008

 | February 6, 2008 10:42 am

We’ll be heading out to the Atlanta Comics Expo from 2/8-2/10 in downtown Atlanta.  This will be the second year for ACE.  Of course, that depends on how you look at it.  The Comics Expo actually originated years ago before it merged with what is now DragonCon.  Now ACE is managed by the same team that manages DragonCon, but it is targetted at a smaller audience.  You can think of it as DragonCon Lite.

Brandi will be judging the Iron Costumer contest and I’ll be hosting.  Hmm, I wonder if this might be a good time to break Robot back out for a little fun? 

Angry Dog Wedding

 | November 11, 2007 12:29 pm

We are proud to say that on Oct 12th, 2007 the two halves of Angry Dog Armor were happily married at Rhodes Hall in downtown Atlanta.  We spent our honeymoon at Walt Disney world and are now settling in to our new life together.  That means we are painting and moving into a new house still. 

The marriage planning, wedding, honeymoon, purchasing a new home, moving into said home, painting said new home, fixing things in said new home and explaining to a very confused cat that this is his new home has taken alot out of us time wise.  But don’t worry!  We will be back to costuming very soon.

DragonCon 2007…Another Year Gone By.

 | September 10, 2007 9:19 pm

We had a great time at DragonCon yet again this year.  It is just such a great opportunity to see old friends and make new ones.  This year was a little off organizationally due to all the traffic routing issues with the Marriott being under construction, but it was still a great time.  Brandi and I really didn’t have much time to experience the post con depression due to the wedding planning and buying a house, but we still felt that post con tug on our hearts as friends headed out to their different areas of the country/world.

 Steampunk really seemed to be the new and upcoming thing.  Brandi and I are not ones to jump on the bandwagon, but it is just such a great movement we really must do something for next year.  We are already talking, along with others, about possible ideas.  I can’t wait to work on this one.  Course, the schedule is starting to get really packed for next year.

DragonCon

 | August 23, 2007 7:54 pm

Wow, so close now.  Be on the lookout for us at DragonCon.  Costumes you might see us in, Death Eaters, Gatchaman, 60’s Batman Baddies, Naruto & Bleach Animes, WWII, League of Their Own (GPBL), and a few others Brandi likes to sneak in at the last minute.

 Course, I’ll (Jimmy) probably be running around with my camera in my hands most of the time. 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Release

 | August 1, 2007 2:35 am

Wow, it has been a bit since we posted.  Sorry about that.  We are right in the middle of house shopping and Brandi is busting her butt on everything right now. 

We ….. heck Brandi pulled off an amazing job of putting together my Death Eater and her Bellatrix in time for the book release.  We hit up the Borders at Town Center again this time since we had such a great time there last release.  We were blown away by the size of the crowd this time, it was easily four times that of the last release.

The costumes went over very very well and we ended up taking first place in both the male and female contests!!  On top of that I won a raffle for a copy of the cover art signed by the artists.  Very cool time.  Pic below:

Atlanta Comics Expo After Report

 | April 24, 2007 7:59 pm

Wow, that was fun. We had a blast. It was the first year, so it was small in terms of attendance. We don’t have any official numbers yet, but I would think it was around 600-800 for the two days. Something we didn’t mention previously was that Brandi was asked to be the Director of the Costuming track for ACE. Though I think she pulled out a few hairs from stress, she did a great job. Pictures are Here. One of my favorite shots below.
