Close at hand
Dragon*con is just aroung the corner. 13 days away. Everybody get out the costumes and sharpen those fangs. Kittyn-Capone Productions wiil be there, be sure to stop by our dealers table and see whats going on. 

The famous Harry Potter character 'Nevels" played by Matthew Lewis will be at Dragon*con this year. Be sure get his autograph. Having read the final book myself i can tell you that he plays a major role in the end, if your a fan this a must on the list. 

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Dawn Look-a-Like contest. Hopefully Kittyn-Capone Productions will have an entry into the contest. Show your support for the women on stage. It takes guts to do what they do. Dawns array of costumes aren't exactly 'grandma' wear. most consists of pretty intimate apperal. Again, show your support.

As always, enjoy the con. Hope to see you there.

Kittyn-Capone Productions.

Been a while.
The host hotels for DRAGON*CON in Atlanta are sold out, and the overflow hotels are going fast! If you don't have your room or DRAGON*CON pass/ticket yet you be a damn good dancer. If you are going to be in the DRAGON*CON parade i have good news, they're allowing 4-wheelers and other off road terrain vehicles in the parade this year. Shifty will be entering the parade with THE OUTTER RIM star wars communtiy. If you live in the Colunbus and surrounding areas and want to join THE OUTTER RIM i'd be happy to invite you to a meeting and you can stay if you like or leave if you don't. Although i'm pretty sure you'll like it. 

Kittyn-Capone Productions has a dealers table this year and i'd love to introduce myself to you if you'd just stop by my table, i promise you won't miss me, i'll be the crazy one in costume. If you mention that i spoke to you in this community i may even throw in a discount or free t-shirt.

If you like other sci-fi and fantasy conventions OMEGA*CON is coming soon. You should visit their host site and check it out. I'm pretty sure Kittyn-Capone Productions will be hosting a Anime Costuming track there. I can't remeber the web address off the top of my head but i'm sure if you go to google and type in OMEGA*CON it will take you to the home page. OMEGA*CON will be located in Birmingham,AL

NERDA*CON at Columbus state university in Columbue,GA was a good go around this year. I've heard their going to give it another go in August. Kittyn-Capone Productions along with DNA hosted a costuming track at the last NERDA*CON, i'm sure will be there again in august.

Freak Accident.
Tuesday, December 19

My boyfriend was in a freak accident yesterday: He is a machanic at a bowling allley:
Last night i got a call from his manager at work and he asked me for Jeremys (boyfriend) parents number, i told him the number and asked what had happened and all the manager knew was that there had been an accident and Jeremy was being rushed to the nearest ER. I rushed to the ER and the corresponding hospital and found that his hair had gotton caught in one of the machines at work. He lost all of his hair and two very small parts of his scalp. The doctors all told him he was extremly lucky the machine didn't rip his entire scalp off, or decapitate him. This is by far the closest he has come to death. This morning his head is nearly entirely swollen and the doctor said it will be for at least 3 more days. He has two black eyes and is very tired. He is carring on conversations and going about a normal day....Only with an obvious head injury. The doctors said a concussion could accour in his sleep so i have to wake him up every 3-4 hours to make sure he remebers his name.

Wednesday, December 20

Today the swelling has gone down tremendously and he had enough confidence to allow me to take some pictures. We visited his work place to reassure his co-workers that he was alive and recovering. Jeremy told his co-workers that he is planing to return after his injuries are healed. But, After seeing all the crying relatives and a very worried girl friend i wish he wouldn't. And on a side note...his boss cleaned the machine and saved jeremys hair for him -kind of morbid- the manager stated " It's not my hair, i'm just returning it to it's owner", i also have a picture of his hair. If you'd like to see the pictures i can e-mail them to you later.

Thank you for reading, 
Kittyn

I was luckly enough to be at the Concert and also made it to all the Panels the Cruxshadows sat on. When I was there I bought 6 copies of Sophia for X-mas gifts this year.

The Ego Likeness / Cruxshadows concert was the high point of the Con for me. That and meeting up with the MySpace DragonCon group.

Also I found a New Band that I like, Abney Park.

If you want to see my Cruxshadows Pics they are at.

Convention Information:

All 4 hotel are within walking distance of each other, The Mariott and the Hyatt are the epicenter of the convention and the Hilton Is the registration point. For those of you that ordered online the Line is alot shorter, And tose of you purchasing on site will have about a hour to two hour wait.

Update:
Gaming this year is taking place in the Hilton. Make your reservations accordingly.

Update:
The Marriott's current room
clock is full. I spoke to the hotel directly. the
reservation rep told me it was odd that D*C had not
blocked all of the rooms this year. That leads me to
believe there might be a problem with the records in
the system.

I sent an email to the hotel contact on the D*C web
site but haven't heard anything back yet. I'm not
advocating a 'letter writing campaign' but perhaps if
D*C got more than one mail about it, they'd check on
the hotel's records and/or add more rooms into the
block.

Marriott will be more than happy to make a reservation
for you, at $239/night, so clearly there are available
rooms - just not at con rate, even over the phone.

-J Price/D*C parade group leader
