Lots of pictures on Flickr, but here are two standouts:
Mayor Grymm and his "right hand man," Emperor Justinian Stanislaus.
That hand was a work of genius. It was fully articulated and frankly kind of creepy.
Morgan, testing out hats:
Conversation with Quinn during down time at Arisia '11, taking a break from walking around the dealers' room with his brother:
Q: "What's this?" (holds up a Fox Trot panel featuring Jason's math homework)
Me: "It means 'the square root of 9.'"
Q: "What's that?"
Me: "It's the number that makes 9 if you multiply it by itself. So in this case it's three. See, three times three is nine."
Q: "Well, that doesn't sound so hard."
Me: "Maybe not in this case. But it can be tricky. Like, what's the square root of 81? See? There isn't a really easy way to figure that out except by trial and error."
Q: "Isn't that just 9?"
Me: "Quinn, how did you figure that out?"
Q (exasperated): "I don't know! I just thought of nine because nine times nine is 81!"
Me: "You just remembered that nine times nine is 81."
Next stop: the Steampunk World's Fair in May, I think.

How well do temporary hair dyes work? Do they wash out right away? Do they produce bright and vivid colors? Which brands are best?
ETA: this is a one-day thing, so super-temporary dye shampoos and the like are potentially fine.
If we were to apply more than one color--say, a mohawk with colored sides--is that likely to be way too complicated for an amateur to attempt on their first try? Would we want to use a semipermanent dye for that, rather than the totally temporary ones?
