Evolution of the Director

I keep forgetting to post about this...

My late late late late birthday gift came in. I got me an AEG airsoft rifle in the form of a MP5SD6, a carrying case, dual shoulder pistol holsters, and a spare mag for the MP5.

I posted that I was looking to ditch my belt holsters for the shoulder holsters. I did a test run today and I felt much comfortable around the waist. I may have to get my jacket tailored so that it expands a bit more, but that depends on how much it all costs and my decision if it's all worth it.

I will be trying this new configuration in the December, and then make changes for the January show.

Meanwhile, I'm also in the process of obtaining a new costume...I hope to put in an order sometime in November.

Double Tree Hotel

So, I'm at the Double Tree Hotel in Sacramento for a Community College Leadership Conference.

If you don't know, across the street from the Red Lion Inn is the Double Tree Hotel.

Personally, I think that if Sac-Anime wants to go back to a hotel for Summer 2008, it should come here. After all, this Double Tree is known for hosting such conventions, including the much publicized Star Trek Con that rolled by a year or two ago (I know it did though, I just don't remember when it happened). Compared to the Red Lion Inn, the Double Tree Hotel is much nicer and would still be a good site to hold Sac-Anime.

'08 Registration

Registration for FanimeCon '08 is up. Price right now if $40 until November 1st.

I want to pull the trigger and do it, but I may have to wait; someone might accompy me to Fanime and probably I'll pay for them...

So, for now I'll wait.

Being Uncomfortable

So, I've decided to ditch my twin belt holsters for shoulder holsters. The problem I had with the belt holsters was when I sat down, plus they were bit of an effort to get them on and off. With the shoulder holsters, they will go under the jacket, they won't get in the way when I sit down, and it will be easier to get them on and off. I can even still carry my twin pistols, thanks to an additional holster that I can use to do a double draw.

I haven't purchased them yet, but I plan to soon in time to try it out for the December show.
