Cosplay Programming Poll
Poll #1808039 Cosplay Programming Poll

If we were to have costume-related programming, what would best describe what you would most want to attend?

Cosplay 101 for beginners
A presentation of awesome VB/Metalocalypse costumes
A workshop for something simple but popular (Monarch henchman, Klokateer)
A technique-specific kind of workshop (such as how to paint/dye, use foam, sew spandex, etc.)
Other -- please explain in the comments in as much detail as you'd like.

Informal Programming: Call for Ideas
We've all been talking about formal programming, but we on the Rusty Gear staff need informal programming ideas, too - and people to help implement them. Post your ideas here, and be sure to add if the activities you propose are ones that you would lead, or that someone else would lead.

Just a reminder: this all falls into the realm of informal programming.
- Fanworks, such as fic and art booths (except for workshops, which are formal).
- Stuff that doesn't come with a set time period and/or can be done for a long time. Example: episode reenactments, which have already been proposed.
- Fan-led activities that don't require a teacher (in contrast to workshops); for example, making masks of Dethklok, or having a booth where everyone leaves a lyric to make a killer Dethsong.

If you do want to volunteer, a meeting time will be forthcoming.

Venture Bros. Brainstorming Meeting on AIM
On Saturday at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time there will be a Venture Bros. brainstorming meeting to spark ideas for programming proposals.  It will take place on AIM in the chat room "RustyGearChat", and instructions for how to get into an AIM chat room can be found here. If you have trouble getting in, try contacting me at JesJamesMeowth and if I can't help you get in I'll help you stay updated.

I really hope to see people there. 

If you talked about an idea for programming, or if you have yet to check out the other ideas, you should check out the programming ideas post. We could always use more input, and we definitely could use more proposals. I promise I don't bite. :-)
