We have some fantastic pros volunteering for these sessions, so don't miss out! The number of sessions we will have will be limited by the pros' time and room availability. There will be sign up sheets at the art show, but if all the available slots fill up before the convention, we will not be able to set up more sessions.
The dance is Friday from 9pm-3am, but really, it will start as soon as the room can be turned around. Stop by a little earlier if your dancing feet can't wait and you might be pleasantly surprised.
The Greater Portland Area Costumers Guild (GPACG) will again present the Masked Ball on Saturday, November 12. Join us, on stage or in the audience, at the new time – 6:00 pm. Contestants will be showing off their costumes, competing for handmade cloaks, membership to Orycon 34, and Fabric Depot gift cards worth $25, $50, and $75.
Submit your best work to the workshop just as you would submit your best work to an editor. Often a piece has problems that the author doesn't know how to fix, and this is a good venue to explore solutions to those problems.
On the other hand this is not a good venue in which to present problems that you already know are there, know how to fix and haven't gotten around to eliminating. Critique time is precious and goes by very quickly. It's best spent on problems that are unknown or difficult for you to solve rather than the problems you already know how to take care of.
