Tribal Markings, Clothing and Body decoration. Wearable spells.
  Magic is a power within yourself. It is your force, something only you can channel. But how do you direct it? How do you bring the force within to the outside world. How do you manifest this energy? In Tribal Markings, we will present what elements, what powers, what deities are ready and waiting to dance with you. Then you will choose your symbols, adorn yourselves and join the passion of the dance. This hands on panel will give you the opportunity to claim a symbol of power and anoint yourself with it. Caution: Multiple body paints and black-light responsive body paints will be in use. Clothing can be stained. Please dress in items you do not mind staining or  in clothes you want to mark magically!

Garthis and Dee Paw Fasting
It is a pagan tradition to commit to a year and a day when two hearts want to share the same home. It's a challenge to show, through hardship and happiness that both partners are committed to the relationship. At the end of a year and a day, the couple may choose to renew their engagement, dissolve it or expand it to forever and a day. We welcome everyone to stand and bear witness to our vows.

I also love drawing and various arts and craft projects. If you see me walking around, feel free to say hi and get yourself a big puppy... Read More →

Gear Heads
  Do you love the feeling of freedom you can only get from riding down a winding road on two wheels or in a car with precisely tuned engine and suspension?  Are you bored to tears at the idea of driving a car, truck or bike that looks and drives just like every other one on the road?  Does your idea of driving entertainment begin where the pavement ends?  Are you disappointed if your vision doesn't blur each time the bass hits on your car's sound system?  Do you ever find yourself turning the volume down on that hard hitting system because you'd rather listen to the mechanical music your sweet ride is pumping out?  Then the Gear Heads and Furry Motorcyclist panel is the place for you!  Come hang out with Loud, Brandon (and Kaba) as they discuss the various ways to modify your vehicle to make it look and perform beyond what the manufacturer ever intended.   Topics will cover how to get the best performance and appearance out of your car, truck or motorcycle no mater what you drive.  They will discuss  the full range of street and track performance, show cars, motorcycles and 4x4s.  Join in the discussion as they strive towards the goal of making our vehicles everything we want them to be, no matter what that is.
This will be located in the back of the hotel, outside.

Molding and Casting
Gre7g is giving a quick talk about the molding/casting that he and Kyoht used to make their lightswitch covers. He plans to cover the process from creating a foundation, to a clay original, to a mold, to casting resin copies, and the finishing work. Novices interested in the process are welcome as are furries who have lots of experience. Much of the time will be reserved for Q/A and discussion of what has worked well and poorly for others who have tried it.

These are the Switch plates they made and will be selling at Fangcon: http://kyoht.com/#!gallery=werewolves&image=WerewolfLightswitch4.jpg
