Who all is bringing a candy skunk to FC?

POTATO - Dance! by me
I want to plan a photo shoot / meet up with anyone else going! I know I have Diadexxus and Nevermint in on it, but there has gotta be more than just us 3? haha.

Tell me if you are going and when you have some spare time!

One of these days, Synchra. One of these days...

Three isn't so bad, you know. Usually there's only two of us running around at the same con. I think I biggest meetup we had was 4- Sweettart, Andi Mint, Reese, and Skittle at MFM one year.

Lol, it's too bad there aren't more of us in the same area of the US/World! But you'd think with 3000-4000 people going to FC that there would be more!

Well, considering how spread out the Candy Skunks are? Lessee, the finished suits-

Sweettart- Arkansas
Java (in progress)- Arkansas
Spree- Illinois
Reese- Kentucky
Jelly Belly- Colorado
Wintergreen- Colorado
Zero- Georgia
Godiva- California
Licorice- California
Skittle- Florida
Shock Tart- West Coast somewhere
Andi Mint- I have no idea!

...so few of the rest of the guys have not been finished, that I'm ready to cancel their concepts and let new members in, in case they're ready to actually MAKE their critters. Only 12 are complete? That doesn't make for a very large group. You and Dia and I think Shock Tart are the only west coasters, while the rest of us are so scattered around the country...

Plus, with air fares so outrageous and with the poor economy, I actually expect to see less furs travelling to far away cons and staying closer to home.

It's sad.

True. Colorado isn't too far away though. :D

I am still making Trick though! I have just been slow. >.< Also I know Jax started Pop Rocks.

If you cancel concepts to let new members in, make sure you contact people beforehand in case they started them or commissioned them and they aren't done yet. I bet there are some people who are on a long waiting list with commissions as well. >.O

I am totally going to finish Atomic Fireball at some point :( Life wrenched me way far off the Candy Skunk trail! He is a suit I'd love to finish though....

Oh wow, that is an awesome design!
22nd-Jan-2009 12:00 am (UTC) - You forgot VIOLET CRUMBLE!
She was finished over a year ago, and won first place beginner at FC 08's masquerade!

Violet will be at FC :)

Yay!!! we will have 4!!! :D
22nd-Jan-2009 12:17 am (UTC) - Re: You forgot VIOLET CRUMBLE!
I did, forgive me. I'd forgotten that you completed her!

Hey, Zero's gonna be done for FWA!
EDIT: Nevermind, I see I'm in the list already xD

Shock Tart- West Coast somewhere...........I live in Idaho, basically right on the Idaho/Washington state line.

I had planned on going to FC, but the cost of air travel ultimately killed any hope of making it down there again, maybe next year.

I have Kisses and remember claiming her a good 3 years ago. I'm still interested in the idea of a candy skunk but have never gotten to making her. I kind of what to find a new candy, something bright and obnoxious. I've collecting wrappers I find interesting since then. I think about this pseudo debt at least once a month and would love to start on it but you now the drill as far as limitations go now a days. Anyway, I'm asking if you could please not cut me out. Perhaps Kisses but not 'smonda'. I WILL make this suit and WILL make a con with the rest of the candy skunks one day :3
21st-Jan-2009 09:19 pm (UTC)
I will have mine there. And I think Nevermint is bringing his.
21st-Jan-2009 09:30 pm (UTC)
I think we're just going to have 3 skunks! XD At least it's easy to organize.
21st-Jan-2009 09:35 pm (UTC)
I was aiming to try to get the Candy Skunk I want to do, done for FC, but since new membership wasn't "open" I decided to concentrate on the two other suits I was making this year.

I'll eventually have a candy skunk at FC as well, once "membership opens" again I guess.
21st-Jan-2009 09:43 pm (UTC)
What candy was it? I think the issue was just people attempting to use candies that were already used.
21st-Jan-2009 10:39 pm (UTC)
I want Big Hunk Candy bars. I was told it was available, but just aren't accepting other people right now.
21st-Jan-2009 10:39 pm (UTC)
Oh okay. O.o
21st-Jan-2009 10:43 pm (UTC)
In all honesty after FC I'm just gonna start making him. I decided I didn't really need someone telling me if I'm "in" or not to make this suit. I just wanna see him made dang it! haah
21st-Jan-2009 10:46 pm (UTC)
I'm sure it would be okay! XD
22nd-Jan-2009 12:06 am (UTC)
Totally! Sheesh, just do it. There's no one that's going to frown on it, certainly, and Big Hunk isn't taken, so go for it! :D
22nd-Jan-2009 12:07 am (UTC)
Oh! And post character designs and ideas and progress! I wanna see! XD
22nd-Jan-2009 12:19 am (UTC)
The reason I wasn't accepting new members is because I waned to push some of the others to finish the suits they wanted to make. Also, I was trying to avoid having the same color schemes being repeated, as well as only one of each candy represented. But Big Hunk isn't a taken concept, so go for it. I'll be opening membership for new folks soon anyway!
