I had the wonderful experience of attending Convolution in Burlingame this past weekend. It is a second year convention and it was incredible. There were a couple of bobbles at the beginning, I have no doubt that there will be fewer next year. The guest list was incredible: Brian, Wendy, and Toby Froud; Richard and Wendy Pini, Richard Kadrey, Ivan Van Norman, Tricky Pixy, M. Todd Gallowglas, and way too many more to list. I was fortunate to be able to take both of the workshops offered by the Frouds. The mask making workshop was on Friday afternoon. It was listed as a workshop led by Toby, but all three of them were there teaching us how to make beautiful masks. It was incredible. I thought I would share a photo of the masks that we all made.

I was able to wear my mask to the Goblin Ball on Saturday night. I think it went with my costume pretty well.
