  1. Makeup VI : SPFantastic

    Lisa Eldridge has two videos on brushes (the later is an updated version of the first). Even if you don't go for the brands she mentions, they are useful for seeing the sizes and shapes of the brushes and what she recommends them for. She does suggest going to an art supply store to get cheap paintbrushes for certain things.

    You can go by a particular author you really want to hear speak or a theme. Last year I wen to all the YA panels. I think another year I went to Urban Fantasy panels. But if you've never heard GRRM speak and want to hear him, start with that or some other author.

    I've got my tiara packed and ready to go! Shipping it ahead because TSA might view it as a dangerous weapon!
  4. WorldCon Party FRIDAY -- SETUP AT 8PM PARTY AT 9PM

    Well seeing as I am Keeper of the Lights I can certainly hang them up as well as help with other setup tasks. And as always not drinking so can help with anything with that requirement.

    No way! Sounds perfect for know you need this!
  6. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child being Published as a Book

    I think it was a missed opportunity to do something different based on the new format. It wasn't at all what I expected it would be when I heard Rowling was involved in a play that would "explore how Harry wrestles with his past and how his youngest son Albus Severus deals with the heavy burden of the family legacy." I knew this going into this weekend because I had read all the spoilers after the previews started in London but still wanted to read the script for myself. It does read like a fanfic story and not anything I would expect Rowling to ever be involved with. (I think WTF was my first response upon reading the spoilers.) While adult Harry Potter felt true to form a number of others from the original series felt quite changed. And others entirely changed. Albus and Scorpius were nice additions to the universe, I quite enjoyed them and their friendship. (Scorpius is clearly Rowling's response to everyone who fangirled the other Malfoy's much to her bewilderment and dismay.) While disappointing, it was a quick easy read. I didn't hate it. I enjoyed revisiting the world and some of the characters.
  7. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child being Published as a Book

    I purchased it at a midnight release party but having read all the details of the play previously did not stay up to read it. I'll probably read through it this week though.

    Yes but not by a lot if you are traveling with 3 people. Taxi from the airport to the con hotels will run $50 - $60 dollars each way. So the shuttle would be a bargain for a person traveling alone but if you've got 3 people you might save $3 to $10 total.
  10. Can a woman wear a mens watch?

    Me too!
  11. Can a woman wear a mens watch?

    I have tiny tiny wrists but I only wear large "men's" watches. They work for me the way large sunglasses, big rings, and large bracelets work. Someday I'll inherit my Grandfather's Rolex watch currently being used by my Father and I will absolutely be wearing that when its my turn. So go for it if you like the watch and its comfortable.

    Zabzie, So incredibly sorry to hear all you are going through. All my best wishes to you and your children. No experiences to share but in Illinois there is a Lawyers Assistance Program which is pretty great for helping lawyers out in situations like this. It looks like there are some equivalent groups in NY state and city (with similar names). I know you have a team of people you are already speaking with but to the extent you are both lawyers it might be another helpful resource if you haven't already considered it.
