Con Bravo! Countdown


So I’ve been pretty quiet lately because in addition to being busy with my day job I also had the flu from hell knock me on my ass for the last week. I’m finally feeling better, though I still get tired pretty easily, so if I look a little spacey this weekend when you come to say hi, please forgive me!

The con line-up has changed a bit because, well, uh, due to not eating much for a week, some of the costumes I was planning on wearing won’t fit. Also I didn’t have time to finish off one of them.

Calamity’s ConBravo! Schedule


A note: I like how most of my panels are after 10pm, clearly they know my brand of ‘swearing at the sewing machine’.

Check out the ConBravo Schedule for all the other awesome stuff going on!
