It’s getting into crunch time. We’re 11 days away from DragonCon. The Huntress costume is completed. The only thing left to do is to finalize hair and makeup plans. Deathstroke is getting a few touch ups, and Jaq is down to the details. We’re also helping a friend with a secret project just in time…
Two weeks until DragonCon! We’ve updated the Huntress page, in the Cape, Hair and Makeup sections. We’ve also updated the Jaq 2012 page, for your daily dose of Shadowrun geekery. We’ve got some big things planned during and after DragonCon, so keep your eyes open! And don’t forget to check us out on social media…
Under the three week mark now! Updates to the Huntress Facebook album. Site updates a little later, hopefully with good news of cape completion!
24 days to go! Another update on the Huntress page to the cape section and props section. Slowly but surely, it’s all coming together!
Another update on Huntress. The gloves are finished, and some modifications have been made to the crossbow. This costume is almost complete! Stay tuned!
28 days to DragonCon! Check out the updated Huntress page – I made arm bands this morning before work!
With 29 days until DragonCon, we’re cranking up on our costuming output! We’ve updated the Huntress page, so be sure to check it out, and keep an eye on it, since more updates will be coming soon!

For the purposes of this post, let’s use the 3rd definition of geek – an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity. The enthusiasm attributed to being a geek can apply to any field – comic books, Star Wars, math, football, baseball, art, cars…the list can go on forever. So a geek is someone who is ardently attached to a cause, object or pursuit, and who is an expert in that cause, object or pursuit.
