Getting Ready for FFNW

I built 6 cage stands this weekend to hold cages while you paint them for the 15 cages we are making at FFNW. Also made a few extra circle bending templates for people to use.
We have started to amass a small pile of prizes, decorations, supplies and misc stuff for FFNW in a few weeks.

Penny tombstone

For those of you who saw the display last year we made a tombstone in honor of the Dr. Horrible Sing along Blog. The female heroine Penny dies in the end by shrapnel from an exploding death ray gun. The actress who plays Penny is Felicia Day the creator of The Guild an online web series about a group of online gamers. Through a mutual Halloween friend Felicia has heard about our tombstone we created and asked if she could see it. So our mutual friend asked us to take a few pictures and he would send it to her.

Little did Felicia know but we had misspelled "Captian" on the epitaph last year. So last weekend we secretly filled in the 'ia" with expanding 2-part foam after doing a pencil rubbing of the letters on paper and sanded it out and re-carved it with the correct order and painted and detailed it. Our repair work is flawless.
