So Megaplex is less than two weeks, who all will I see there? :)
Starting to get excited for the con, and I'll be helping out on a couple panels as well. Unfortunately I won't be able to be there the entire weekend, just Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday most likely, since suit work takes precedence and there are still several to wrap up this month.
As most makers have likewise been experiencing problems with manufacturer delay with fur, so have we to a degree. We were waiting for several bolts to come in after AC, and are still waiting on a couple more shipments although we now finally have most everything back in stock. :) There was a supply issue following the Japan earthquake, Monterey Mills was not receiving the fiber used to make the fur during that time, so certain colors became unavailable. We keep a pretty large stock of fur on hand (an entire room of it, pretty much wall to wall fur on rolls and shelved.) But the main colors we use the most are white/black, these get used somewhere on almost every suit, and they were unavailable for a few months from the manufacturer along with several other commonly used colors. We apologize if there are any delays created from this, but it was a situation pretty much out of anyone's control caused by the disasters in Japan.
I'll also be posting one of our personal suits up for auction soon, just need to put the listing together, and that will most likely be up by tonight. Link and info will be posted here. :)
This morning my Lacybarnett@yahoo and Lacybarnett@gmail accounts were hacked, and a mass email was sent out to all my contacts asking for money to be sent via western union to the UK.
This email is NOT from us. We are not stranded in the UK, please ignore this email.
Good news is we have both the email accounts back already, should be secured this time and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it never happens again.
As a general heads up, we would never mass email all of our contacts and ask for help even if we were stranded. We have our family and even close friends that we would contact directly if a situation like that arose. So in case this ever happens again, please keep in mind we would never ask for help in a mass email.
A few of you have asked me if we will be doing a photoshoot of our work this year, and yes, we will be! :) Now that I have a better idea of the schedule and what's up, here's the info:
Fursuiting.com / Fursuits by Lacy & Nick Photoshoot will immediately follow the fursuit parade. Look for us as we will both be in suit for the parade and will do the group photo right after.
Time: SATURDAY 2:30 - 3:00 PM - If you are in the parade watch for us in suit, as we'll be hanging around and waiting to gather everyone
Today is going to be spent wrapping up a few final touches on suits, and then we'll work on getting photos later today of all the new suits. We'll be posting those up after the con.
I'm excited, we'll see all of you going to FWA very soon! :D
With FWA about a week away for us, thought I'd post a little update with what is going on. :)
We'll be at FWA Thurs-Sun, and we will have a table in the dealer's room this year, so feel free to drop by and say hi. We'll have some fursuit parts for sale, T-shirts, Hoodies, and possibly a couple other things as well.
We'll be taking part in quite a few panels this year, including:
- Meet the GOH
- Fursuit Body Construction
- Fursuit Head Construction
- Fursuit Meet and Greet
So if we aren't doing a panel, we'll be at our table or running around in suit for the most part.
Several new suits will be debuting at the con, probably won't be posting up any images here until after the con, so if you're there you will see. :D And if you aren't there, you'll still see, just a little bit later. :)
Looking forward to the fun times ahead!
