Bay Area Maker Faire, Coming Up Fast

So it looks like I'll once again be putting on a massive display of props and costumes at the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo from May 17th to 19th.

If you weren't there last year, or you somehow didn't manage to see my display, here's just some of what you missed:
Booth Crew

Two Big New Things

ED Wide Angle

That was last year.

This year we'll be bringing back many of the old standbys as well as a few new things.  Here's a quick teaser of one of the current works in progress:

More details to follow on this particular quick and dirty project.

On top of that, on Sunday I'll be one of the judges for the The Second Annual Maker Faire Prop Contest.  You can read more about the contest here: LINK

Need some ideas to help you get ready, the best thing you can possibly have on your workbench is a copy of my how-to book, Make: Props and Costume Armor.  Get yours here: LINK.
