Is anyone else going up to NekoCon this year?

I shall be there, rooming with a friend who stayed with me at AZ, although apparently i'm also going to be rooming with the guy who created the infamous Pimpvangelion flash movie as well.

Okay, since there's a thread here, I guess it's time to bring up a nice little proposal for some of you guys going to Nekocon, how about custom, laimnated badges? Like this one:

Free of charge, fun for all! Just PM me your screen name, the name you want to appear on the badge and a link to an image (preferably 800x600 in size) that you want for the background. (i've gotten this cleared with the cosplay.com people, as long as thier name isn't on it, it's cool)

Nekocon Badges! Here's a few guidelines!
1: Eithr PM me on the forums OR email me at sg_hikari@yahoo.com the following:
-Your username on the board
-Real name or name you wish to appear on the badge
-An image for the background

2: Please send images that are around 600x800, they can be larger or smaller (preferably the forementioned) but that's the size i'm printing them out at.

3: If you want an extra badge or two, say for a loved one, relative or friend, WHO IS ATTENDING THE CON! I'll be more than happy to make one, but don't start giving me 20 names for badges or you won't get yours :P
Just send the same info above, if they don't have a screenname, a nickname will suffice.

4: At the convention, you can get your CCR badge from me, GreatSG anytime that you see me, there's a picture of me in my gallery for help, but i'll be most likely caring around a Tom Servo (http://www.msties.com/news/servo1.jpg) from MST3k, so that should make me indentifiable. Just tell me who you are, and present some identification if you feel it nessecary and i'll hand it over.

5: I will provide hole punching for the badges, i'm nto sure what kind of hanger Nekocon uses for their badges, but the CCR badges will be like a standard 3x4 inch badge. DO NOT CUT A HOLE WITH A KNIFE! I say this because I made that mistake at Otakon with a custom badge I recieved and my stupidity to rash actions.

6: Have Fun and be kind to thank the maker :P

Edit: New notice here just for the sake of covering all bases!
Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT use my hospitality as a means to try and ween your way into the convention WITHOUT paying the Convention registration fee and getting an OFFCIAL NEKOCON BADGE. I highly doubt my badges will pass off as the real thing, and trying to use them as the real thing might get you booted. Do not try and spoil the fun for others.
So do keep in mind that is is very important to have the official Nekocon badge displayed at all times. I doubt this would be a serious problem and all, but it's here just incase. Thank you.

The DEADLINE for submission and changes will be NO LATER than OCT. 16!

So tell me what you think?
Hmm, those look nice. And free too eh? That, as a cosplayer, appeals to me. :D

Yes, I will definitely be doing these for Animazement. I'm glad it appeals to you as a Cosplayer Link, cause I had to go through a tough battle with the cosplay.com heads over the whole thing. But they said it was cool for CCR badges and the like cause it didn't infringe on their name and i'm not selling the service. So i'm glad you people like them. Here's a link to my gallery so far. I'm also doing these for a few friends in an IRC channel. (although a few are there for gags XD)
Here's the Link: Take note that I have a temp gallery for AZ (http://photobucket.com/albums/v119/Greatsg/badges/)

If anyone has questions or comments, do tell me.

Oh well, you spoke with the admins about it? They can't let you use cosplay.com name in events or other things and stuff, can't go and 'attack' a buiding or park in the name of cosplay.com like the CCR does, because if it was a cosplay.com event they'd be responsible, same pretty much with anything else. Then if you were to make and sell cosplay.com stuff it'd be illegal, but then they probably dont want it free anyways, then they cant sell their own if they wanted to, or whatever............ you know what i mean

but its fine for you to do for the CCR, especially if you're doing them free, that way ever member has a chance of getting one, because many of our members are poor :p

Speaking of which, I need to register for the convention sometime, I'll have to do that next time I get paid. I requested a press pass, but it's not free ticket for them. So I gotta pay the cash like everyone else.

BTW, to spot me at Nekocon and hopefully retrieve your badge.
Just look out for me and my
Little Friend (http://www.msties.com/news/servo1.jpg) to retrieve your badges.

Also, if you don't trust PMing, you can e-mail me your info and picture at sg_hikari@yahoo.com

BTW: I'll update my original post as much as possible to list the badges that are finished in planning for people to look over incase they want an alteration done or what not, as well as some other details.

Request yours today! I'll be taking Request until about October 16th. Cuase that gives me plenty of time to get them printed up, laminated, and all that. I'll put that in my main badge thing.
