It's the Monday after the 2010 All-Con and I'm still recovering. Not only from being horribly sick, but from all the pure excitement. And guess what? I'm still excited. I'm already crazy excited about next year! If there's one thing I love about a good Con is the inspiration. I know I've seen some good costumes if I come home and say, "Man, why didn't I think of that!"
This year, the DFW Costumers Guild hosted panels on the basics of Victorian fashion, we learned to knit, and we swapped fabrics. All of our panels were a success. People learned things in the first two. I can't believe I can finally Knit!!! And I went home with less fabric in my stash than I came with, which was my goal. And some folks went home with fabrics that they didn't think they'd see at a swap.
I'm already thinking about the panels the DFW Costumers Guild wants to offer for All-Con 2011. I have several ideas. I'm pretty sure we'll bring the fabric swap back and we'll knit again next year as well. Although it'll be a basic knitting circle with part focused on knitting for charity and part focused on instructing all at the same time. I hope the ladies who attended our panel this year will come again next year so we can all see who we each advanced. And maybe this time we can offer more items to the Austin Browncoats for their charity auctions.
But more than my own ideas of what I'd like to offer for next year's All-Con, I'd really like to know what other people would like to see us bring to the table. If there's a panel you would like to see, let us know. We'll do our best to work something out. And hopefully we'll see many of you at our events between now and next All-Con!
