Whilst at Wyntercon I finally met the 'man behind the mask'.  Last year I had only seen him in costume; which I have to say was impressive.  Not sure of all of what he did last year, I know he did Sheikh Sulieman from the 2010 film "The Clash of the Titans", but it was a year ago and memory being what it is ... :)  This year he did Darth Vader and reprised the Sheikh on the Sunday.  Both very good (if somewhat warm to wear!) costumes he has made himself.
He is also in the process of making a Lycan (yes, you know, from the Underworld series of films?  Big, shaggy and sphincter-openingly scary?).  I've seen photos and ... well, I can see why Len Wiseman (www.imdb.com/name/nm0936482/) re-tweeted it.  It is going to be absolutely bloody stunning when done.
And all this from a guy who is genuinely humble and bordering on self-effacing.  He came up to our pitch at Wyntercon after a full day of being in the Darth Vader outfit and was surprised by the simple offer of a can of drink, almost stunned that anyone would do such a thing.  His work is amazing.  He really would appreciate words of support.  If I 'did' twitter of facebook I'd be all over it.  But I don't.  So, please, go take a look.  And if you think what he does is any good, drop him a tweet or a facebook like (or whatever the hell you have to do!) and just let him know that 'people' think 'the boy done well'.

WynterCon by SimonJM
WynterCon
Some photos sourced via :iconrafellin: mainly from this years Wyntercon.

At the top, bracketing a photo taken by Hastings Voice of 'the stars of the show ...' *cough ahem* are two of the birds that a local hawking outfit "1066 Falconry" had with them. The feathers of the owl are stupendously soft! I knew they were, but to actually feel them really brings it home.  The birds are hand-reared and were very well habituated to people so did not cause any fuss and muss and were just beautiful.
Bottom left is our ride home ... yeah, right!  If you follow the back-end of the batmobile our pitch was just behind the screen you can see - so if they'd sparked it up we'd have been toast in short order ;)
Then there's our pitch, from which Haribo sweeties, Maltesers and Minstrels were distributed.  Oh, and we also sold some books ;)
Along the bottom right are two shots of Paul MacLeod as Sheikh Sulieman (from last years Wyntercon) and one of his Lycan that he is nearly finished making (see recent journal for facebook links to go check on progress)

... at Wyntercon!  Set up yesterday, and we are now sat behind the tables awaiting the doors to open and the punters to flood in!  If you want to come and see us, just look for the Batmobile (yes, really!) and we are just behind it - if they spark it up, we're toast! ;)

Whilst we were setting up we were talking to one the oganisers of the event and she mentioned that she had read one of :iconrafellin:s books, and also read some of it out loud.  No big deal you may think, but (with an obvious catch of emotion in her throat) she explained that this was the first time she had been able to do so.  The reason she could do this was she was reading a print of one of Rafe's books done in the Open Dyslexic font - www.opendyslexic.org  Anything that can help people read is good in my book (pardon the pun) but to actually hear someone say it, with such an obvious feeling of wonder and delight means I really have to bang on about it!  It may not suit everyone, there are different forms of dyslexia, but it's a free font.  Go check it out and support it - see if you can bring joy to someone!

Vendors of Delight

By no means a definitive or complete list, so it will evolve over time. For now this is a partial list of those people and/or stores who, for me, I treat as 'must buy' :)

Glad you haven't fallen down a rabbit hole or anything...  Or gone through a Stargate...  Or hitched a ride in the Tardis... Or just forgotten about us little people!  Giggle
