    TimmyCon!2 will need all kinds of support, from folks with dealer tables to guests from all areas of interest, including horror, comics, costuming, etc. We should start with a wish list of what we'd like to do with TC!2, and go from there.

    Anyone want to lead off?

    I'll be in San Diego/Pheonix for about a week or so for ComicCon this month, but Todd and Pat will be working out the layout and all, so hopefully late July/early August we'll crank up. I'm hoping to get a lot of the promo stuff out of the way before we start construction.

    We'll need bodies for sure once we start, and once it's open. As soon as I know more about the layout for TC!2 and how many tables we'll have room for I'll let ya know. In the meantime start getting anythign you want to bring to it ready, and get those costumes ready. It'll also be Kidz Day and the weekend of Halloween so it's a good excuse to dress up!

    Live bodies.... dead bodies.... I don't think they'll discriminate against a body that volunteers. Well, maybe against nude bodies...

    Then again.... Nope. We won't follow that line of thought.

    Just tell me that Ronald McDonald won't be there again this year and I can deal with anything else you send my way.

    You going to be in town this weekend, Todd?

    Glad to hear that you're sponsoring Youth Villages again. And if Libby is still there, I know that Lin and Sal will be extremely happy that you're sponsoring Youth Villages again!

    Lin likes Libby and Crissy- especially when Libby wears the schoolgirl outfit! Now if we could just convince them to wear a nurse outfit or metal bikini..! :p

    I'll see you over at the haunt then between 2 and 3 tomorrow, Todd. I can help out until around 6:30 tomorrow night. Unfortunately, I'll be tied up for the rest of the weekend thanks to three birthday parties for family members on Saturday and Traci's work schedule.

    I had fun, but the crowds reminded me why I didn't go to C3! There were a few bumps here and there and I lost my cool twice and went off on a couple members of the staff, oh and had my sketchbook stolen, but other than that I did have a good time. Got to meet Ray Park, Bruce Campbell, Kevin Smith, Thomas Jane, and a few others- including a lot of artists and writers like Bernie Wrightson, Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, Timothy Bradstreet, Adam Hughes, Jim Lee, and Frank Cho. Also ran into Kell and Ash, Antone, Janet, Penny, Adam, and a few other MSCA members. Didn't get a chance to see all I wanted, and missed the King Kong and Tenatious D panels, but did catch Kevin Smith live and got to see Bryan Singer and Superman teaser trailer/montage.

    Home now, which is cool- but man after being in San Diego I didn't want to come back to Memphis humidity!

    Lin, glad to hear you made it home safe and had a good time. Kevin Smith must have been a blast to talk to. I just have one question for you... well, make that two. Did you see the Optimas Prime they had set up for the new Transformers movie and if so did you get any pics of it?
