  1. Your flesh work is remarkable. Incredible blends.
  2. Not my Charlie Brown, but an imaginative speculation. Caught my attention.
  3. Thulsa Doom. Long time since I've been reminded of him ... and Conan, of course. Nice work.
  4. Highlander

    Ep. 4 Leia

    Nice makeup on the face. Well done.
  5. Great sculpt, great painting. The eyes really carry it off.
  6. Lot of animation in the face. Good work.
  7. Particularly like the paratrooper.
  8. Impressive sheer fabric.
  9. Great Quasimodo. Brings back memories.
  10. Agree. OOB and GSB have been the bone that the IPMS dog has worried for years now. Looks like GSB is nowhere on the horizon, but the OOB issue is constant, fueled by manufacturers who, over the years, put more and more in the box.
  11. One could make an argument for that. One could make a better argument if one dropped the adverb "VERY". One could make an excellent argument if one replaced "...in any form..." with " ... hardly at all...".
  12. My DW sets up a quilting factory in our room when she accompanies me to a con. Her sewing machine, ironing board, cutting mat, fabric layout, and other arcane paraphernalia occupy over half the room. She uses the pool for water aerobics and the gym for workouts. I think she enjoys the cons more than I do.
  13. A great Nats....yes, indeed. The walk was long ... but, much was on carpet and I got my mileage in every day. A buddy of mine told me he lost six pounds. A great Nats.
  14. Get a photo of a paved, divided road and work toward duplicating it. For example:
  15. The skin thru sheer fabric work is really nice.
  16. The juxtaposition of snipe and beach really catches my attention. IMHO, this is a great example of a vignette telling a story.
  17. The wall painting was impressive ... and realistic, if you've ever seen one.
  18. That is a obviously good idea. Wish I had come up with it.
  19. At the risk of sounding like I'm complaining, which I'm not, I was impressed by the registration. Not by how well it went, but how Vegas had a backup when something went wrong. I had pre-registered. I waited in the pre-registered line to learn that I had no registration packet. At all. I was sent across the foyer to another table. I was miffed. When I arrived, I discovered that I wasn't the only one. I was immediately attended to, had my package prepared within two minutes, and had to wait about five minutes for my badge to be printed. I was pleasantly surprised at the minimal impact when no packet was in hand for me. The positive attitudes and sense of urgency from the Vegas folks defused my irritation and provided insight into how well the Nats were organized. So, the Vegas folks should be pleased at several levels. They did well.
  20. Digitizing the raffle would be a solid "quality of life" step forward. And it could remove the need for a volunteer or two. HST, I was the registrar for a national convention (in another hobby). We decided to put up a screen above the registration desk ... with the current schedule, schedule change notifications, and items of interest related the schedule. It turned into a nightmare. First, when other players in the con learned about the info screen, they wanted all sorts of info from their areas included. There was no clear process for obtaining, confirming, and updating these new categories of info ... magic, I suppose. But there was a clear expectation that the Registrar would be responsible. Second, the mechanics of the data being fed to the screen were not trivial. And there was no guarantee, but an expectation, of timeliness. The "first come, first pick" method was what was picked ... it leaves the burden of selection to the winner. It is the simplest and it encourages early and multiple raffle ticket purchases. And, IMHO, if the winning ticket was tied to a specific kit, several winners would want to negotiate a change to another kit. Yup, can't please everyone. Actually, you're guaranteed to displease somebody.
