Prepping for Dragon Con 2023, New Shirt Designs Will Be Available, and "Apocalypse Dino" Has Been Completed :-)
Ladies and gentlemen, we're now in the final week of preparation before Dragon Con 2023 (we'll be loading the rental truck and heading south next Tuesday), we're entirely nervous yet excited about the trip, and we've rerouted our new t-shirt designs ("Dirty Dancing/Super Mario Brothers" and "Mrs. Cake, Noted Feline Murderess") to be delivered to us down in Atlanta.
Long story short, we'll be scrambling a bit (i.e., unboxing, folding, and labeling the new designs and restock in the hotel room), but we should be able to deliver the new designs we worked so hard on at one of the greatest geek events in the country.
We've also just finished our "Apocalypse Dino" video, which offers a Dino-based recreation of the classic Hotel Room Freakout scene from "Apocalypse Now" with an inflatable T-Rex perspective. Thanks to the amazing Stuart Washington for lending his abode for most of the filming as well as doing the lion's share of the physical acting, voiceovers, and lending a hand with the cuts and editing, and we stand assured that this is what Coppola wanted to shoot in the first place and that a MacArthur Genius Grant lies just around the corner...
If you're headed to Dragon Con, we'll be on the third floor of the vendors area at booths 3518 and 3520 (as illustrated in the video), we can't wait to see you, and despite all the madness that goes into preparing for, traveling to, and working Dragon Con, you guys make everything completely worth it and one of our favorite shows to work each year!!! :-)
Headed to Dragon Con 2023 with the New "Dirty Dancing/Super Mario Brothers" and "Mrs. Cake, Noted Feline Ax Murderess" T-Shirts (Hopefully) In Tow
Dragon Con is around the corner again, the truck has been rented, the booth has been purchased, the AirBNB has been booked, and we're excited to head down and be part of this absolutely amazing event in what can be called its purest form. Our first Dragon Con was in 2021, as Covid protections began to wind down and attendance was capped for safety. Restrictions were lifted a bit further last year, and this year we expect to face the full attendance/presence of Dragon Con at its best.
That being said, we've finished design work on our upcoming "Dirty Dancing/Super Mario Brothers" and "Mrs. Cake, Noted Feline Ax Murderess" t-shirts, and hope to bring them with us to debut at Dragon Con. We're incredibly proud of these designs, and Coner Corbett did an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING job in bringing the "Dirty Dancing/Super Mario Brothers" design to life out of what was just an awkward/silly/haphazard idea.
We'll be on the third floor of the America's Mart marketplace, we'll have a large 3D LED fan spinning with 7+ hours of assorted dorkitude encoded into it, and we'll have free terrible life and relationship advice for you. Come on by, say hi, feel free to lob assorted marmots at our confused selves, and we'll do everything we can to provide something that is awesome.
Dragon Con is an amazing event, it's worth the hours on the road, Tracy Bell creates an AMAZING vendor space, and we can't wait to see it at its full self once again.
