Freshness Fairies Strike Dragoncon!

So when reddheaded and disbandedtoastr came to me and said "we have a great idea for Dragoncon..." they were right! We are gamers, we love gamers, we've been to dragoncon and smaller cons for years. These are our people. And sometimes our people smell.

And so were born the Freshness Fairies, who roam the con dispensing mints, moist towelettes, kleenix, gum, and the occasional spritz of body spray. If you accept, you get a sticker certifiying you are "Con Fresh".

I was a little afraid we'd get smacked but nearly everyone saw the humor in it. Actually, many many people thanked us. I got hugs, thumbs up, and lots of grateful praise. It was such a blast we are working on new ideas for next year. Thank you both so much for the idea and the t-shirt - you are soooo awesome. I promise I will get you more pictures than you actually want on Thursday... But for now, a few pictures...

I must admit I was a little nervous, despite how brilliant and funny the idea, that someone would get really offended and beat the crap out of us. Thankfully, most people thought it was rather funny! disbandedtoastr, me, driodgirl

That's great!!!

Maybe I can be the official Freshness photographer next year, and I can document our freshness efforts for myspace and our .com.

Hehe, I look mad in most of those pics... maybe THAT's why I got some "What the hell do you mean by that??" looks. =o)

i think you look sultry in the first one!

there was one of the P3 where you were smiling more but Redd was making a face so i went with this one. i think i looked better in the other one, too. maybe i can get monkeys to photoshop it!!

Um, no. I was about to leave a comment about how HOT your hair looks. I'm going to print this picture out and take it to my haircut today. "Make my hair look like THIS".

*loves it*

Also, guys, seriously, AWESOME concept. Cause we've all been standing in that D*Con elevator holding our breaths..... eek.

It's a wig! And I’m so jealous of it, because it’s Reddheaded's wig. She's wearing it in the pirate photos. She got it on Ebay... I’ve SO got to get one of my own! It’s so freaking cool!!! =o)
