Canceling the gathering/camping trip. Some medical issues came up, and it's better if I just stay home. It's nothing serious, I just need to take it easy so things can get better by my next appointment.

If you have lost something at the convention, there are a couple of resources to try.

During the convention, Lost and Found items were normally turned over to ConOps.
At the end of the convention, items that were not picked up have been turned over to the Lost and Found team.

  • If you have lost something of interest, like a camera or ipod or phone or wallet, contact us at, with all the details that you can provide.  In particular, if you can give the color, model, etc. that would be helpful.  If it was a camera or a wallet, maybe describe some of the pictures inside of it.  This helps us get to a unique identification.
  • If you have part of a costume, contact us at  Please be sure to describe the item in question as best as you can.

    • If you can find a picture of a similar item online, please include that with your report.  We can use that as a reference picture.
    • Please assume that we don't know anything about anime.  If you write "I lost something, it looks like Orihime's necklace"; that will not be helpful.
  • As a last resort, if you lost something in your hotel room, you may want to contact the hotel's lost and found department directly.

If you are local, we will try to directly deliver the items.  If you are further away, we'll see if we can mail them out.

I cannot respond to lost and found reports in the thread or via PM; you will need to email them.
If you have questions about Lost and Found, you can reply here.

FanimeCon 2009,

(p.s. if you are going to any cons in the future, put a little "this backpack belongs to J. Smith, 123 Main Street, Anytown, CA" card in one of the pockets.  We get a lot of backpacks, purses, and luggage that can't be traced).
#4 is a site for tattoo artists and fans. I would like to throw this site out to those who are interested. It's an awesome site and people are quite friendly. Right now there is a referral contest, with the chance of winning a free tattoo from an artist. This competition is open to everyone around the globe.
I referred a friend to join up when the site wa sin it's infancy. Help me beat him!!! He already won a free tattoo in the last competition. BUM! lol

Please be sure to type in who referred you...otherwise it won't count on the ticker. ;)

Gaming / Wii
March 09, 2009, 12:33:09 AM
So I FINALLY got to play the Wii yesterday.
I only found out about it becuase my neighbor bought it, and didn't really know anything about it. So I visited his duaghter, who was setting it up...and we were playing all evening.

And I really liked it.  All I did was bowling...but I am easily entertained.
I liked the 'swish' sound the controller made. X3 It was fun waving that thing around, to see what would happen.
I didn't realize it was that compact, compared to other gaming consoles. I've never got to see one up close or to play one. I am pleased. I'd like to get one for myself eventually, when I have expendable income again. X3

So I had this skirt from Rampage that was sort of blah, and I gave it a touch up.

The back of the skirt, on me. ;)

Things in the Universe / Map of Counties in Ca.
February 23, 2009, 12:49:48 AM
Okay, so I was a little peeved and decided to look up counties. It drove me insane to not know where humboldt was. No offense to anyone who lives in the circled counties. If anything, I just want to educate people. I was just wondering where the hell people are located.

I live in Amador, wich is the red circle, next to sac.

I've had a few people turn down invitations to visit me, becuase they didn't know where Amador was, and that it was too far. Yet the same people will drive waaaaaay farther then where I am located, or to the neighboring counties. Mostly not knowing the county I lived in was right there. ;) I hope this helps others, and adds some clarification.

Rewrote the title to knock around a few lolz. Enjoy!!!

Hey guys, this is the studios' 5th annual toys for tats toy drive.

Donate new and unwrapped toys to us, and we will give you double the amount you paid for the toy in tattoo work. You can donate as much as you want. All tattoos need to be completed by July 1 2009. So that gives you a lot of time to get your tattoo.

Studio price is $50 an hour. So if you bought $50 in toys, you'd get $100 in tattoo work.

Amador Ink is located @
Lake Camanche North
Shore, 4240 #3 
Camanche Pkwy. No. in
the rural area of Ione,
Calif. 95640.

Things in the Universe / For sale
October 20, 2008, 05:22:01 PM
So I need some cash again. I am trying to pay off this debt I have. Doesn't matter how much, it all sucks when you don't have any income at all.

I am also trying to save up for my own tattoo machine, so I will have something of my own to tinker with and get used too, as well as not having to share. Each artist at the studio is required to have their own machine anyways. What I need is a Del Rio liner/shader that is around $200.

Hopefuly there is something here that will interest someone. My main focus is just getting enough to knock off my debt. >:/

Things in the Universe / Clean Up
September 30, 2008, 07:50:31 PM
I am cleaning up this section.
Starting from the back forward (Now that I figured out how things work, it's a little different from a few other boards I am on)

I consider this a headsup. Just trimming stuff down that no one even looks at anymore. Like posts from 2003. O.o
Incredible Stuff I can Make / Really Useful Links
September 30, 2008, 07:31:56 PM
This section is dedicated to websites that are particulary useful to a crafters' needs.
Feel free to post your own as well.Now, I know there is probably something like this in the cosplay section, but I am ripping it off anyways.

Please refrain from posting clothing sites, and sites catering to fashion. Although it can be called a craft, what I really mean is tools and materials needed for your crafting needs. I will delete unecessary chatter and links.

Here is my all time favorite sites that I go too when I am in dire need of materials.
