Nash, here. This post is a little early, but is regarding something I'm a bit excited about. Dara and I will be at Animazement in downtown Raleigh over Memorial Day weekend. AZ is held May 22-25 this year, so buy your tickets and come pester us. We'll be doing demos, manning a both and Dara will even be teaching a few classes. I'll mostly be manning the booth, but if you drop by on the hours, I'll probably have some tidbits into creating objects of mayhem and even promoting some stuff we've been working on. Like steampunk bubble guns, or wooden replica weapons you can spar with or just walk around carrying. We'll be selling kits, items, etc for between $5-10.
Booth Demos! (May 22-24)
Each day we're manning the booth at AZ, each hour we'll be talking about something fun and interesting. If you're inclined to drop by and pester us, here's a rough outline of what we might be talking about. It'll tend to last about 10 minutes, but, if you want to chat more, you're welcome to keep us company.
