Hey everyone! Just wanted to say, a JI-NORMOUS thank you to every single person that helped make our RTX booth a success! Everyone that we interacted with was so excited to learn about us and our community, and we could not have pulled it off without the help of our fellow members! We are already so excited to begin planning for next year. If anyone has any feedback or suggestions for us, we'd really appreciate it! What worked? What needed improvement? What do you want to see that we didn't have? Here are some generic notes I'm already keeping in mind: - We were hit with a surprise "upgrade" to an island booth and found ourselves (initially) ill-prepared. I would like to have a backup set of tables, like we were able to procure for the convention this year. We DID make it work and I feel it was a great success, but we were definitely not ready for that kind of layout. - Our costume fixing station was a HUGE success and should definitely be kept. We set out a tip jar for our services, and we actually raised $110 over the course of the convention: it paid for a quick resupply of materials, and paid for at least half of the cost of the banner we had printed. - We were unable to do the raffles we had planned due to low staffing levels making it impractical to run a raffle effectively. (This, in part, because our fixing station was SO popular!) - Demos were very popular (and requested) and should be kept. - We had multiple mannequins of armor in various stages of completion (Ash's Spartan up front, Eric's Halo Wars nearly-finished, and Tanner's in-progress build). If we can do this again, that'd be awesome. - We want to have in-progress examples of both foam and pepakura available to show to visitors. (Showing each step, I.E.: pepakura pieces, put-together item, item with resin, item with resin/fiberglass, item with bondo/detailer, item with paint.) If I'm forgetting something, fellow booth-peeps, please let me know. And everyone please feel free to contribute ideas for next year!
