When last we left our hero, she was buried under a deadly pile of things to do! But with truth and justice (and coffee!), she has managed to whittle down the lists into something like this:
I’ve managed to do much of the following for Dragon Con this past week:
Planning an Artist’s Alley Table
I’ve been researching displays of other folks at artist alleys and there’s a few things that I’ve noticed everyone seems to be doing.
But of course, there will also be free candy with shiny stuff on it to lure people in! Besides that, there are still many things to do! Including the matting of prints and art for display and making sure everything is autographed, bagged, tagged, and ready to go.
To Charge or Not to Charge?
But then what happens when people want to pay? I am considering accepting credit cards, but that has opened up a whole other arena of information to explore.
First off, most of these places charge per transaction and a monthly fee and require you to be a business (which I am not just yet.) Also, there’s extra equipment to carry and so many choices of services that it makes my head spin!
And let’s not forget how easy it is these days for people to pay with a fake credit card at the expense of the poor sap (me)! It has me considering accepting debit and cash only.
The Legend Continues…
Sadly, I won’t be participating in the Dawn Lookalike Contest this year to give my friend some time to really put her all in it, but I am still planning to deck myself out in the 3 tears of the Goddess, tragedy mask, and wrist rose/chain she is so famous for. Now, I just need to sit and make all of that too! (Masochist much?)
With 52 days left, and counting, it seems there will be never a dull moment around here!
