I know, but sometimes it's more fun to guess.  :D

Indeed! :D

Congratulations!  Wow it's been a while since this thread had any posts in it.  How has this been going aside from the awesome nomination?

Heh, yeah, I haven't updated this thread with some of the other news items.



Final production proof arrived yesterday/this morning.

(Edit: by the way, quick-edit doesn't seem to work properly...I just get an empty text box)

It totally does.  I got my grubby little paws on it last night (after watching Pacific Rim) and it's fantastic.  Few minor quibbles that if we'd really thought about it months ago we'd have done it differently (the mats just have a blank white back side), but nothing worth throwing money at a reprinting for.

Minor update:

It has been decreed (*cough* by myself) that I shall show up to the black tie affair as Reginald (the red one and English gentleraptor).

It will be worth every penny for the looks on people's faces alone.

Only photos I've found so far:

The only other person in costume was Skeletor, who presented one of the awards (though he was only in costume for the award ceremony itself).

What's all that hogwash in the article text about you wearing a dinosaur head as costume?

Clearly, it was a monocle.

Hahaha!

Thanks Keith, that made me smile.

I counted at least 12 requests for pictures (actual total was 14, but I lost count), not counting ones from my partners in crime or the photobot.  So there are some more out there, just haven't seen them show up.

Here's a couple from JR, a partner in crime, http://jrblackwell.tumblr.com/post/58615081453/velociraptor-cannibalism-at-the-philly-geek
