Arisia 2012 - Dragon books, eyes and costumes


   I finished a new copy of my Dragon Names book this year
to present at Arisia 2012 in Boston last weekend:
Newly dubbed the "Great Book of Dragon Names" this new
edition contains 410 and counting names....for all you dragons
out there looking to name your young'un or for other wanderers
wishing to make sure their favorite dragon is honored in such
a book. (Actually...thanks to folks at Arisia...there will be
more names added before ACC Baltimore in February. I'm
still looking for more that begin with J, Q, and X.

Of course, dragon books, as I learned needn't be just for
reading.  They also make nice hair accessories as this
young customer let me know! 

 Arisia is always fun to participate in since its a delightful
10 min. from my home, an easy set-up, and is a voyage to
quite a different world than my usual fine craft show....I
always learn something new.  This year it was about the
world of theatrical and custom contact lenses.  Michelle
from was set up next to me.

Check out Michelle's eyes! She's wearing a cat and a
blue star. I thought about getting a pair to wear at shows-
perhaps a banshee or black wolf set? But decided they
might distract my usual customers.

It's always fun people watching at this type of event. 
these are some of the folks who passed by my booth:

I thought this guy's steam punk stilts were very cool:

You pick up intriguing technical tidbits at conventions like
this too. I learned about el wire from this couple.  The oval
piece in the center is lit up! 
Who knows what my booth may hold next?
I picked up some spikey metal dice from
Andrew from
which I hope to incorporate into a new
creature...stay tuned!  

Adventure on! Wendy
