Phoenix Cactus Comicon is seeking guest Liaisons [August 2nd
@ 5:03pm

Hello, everyone! I thought hey, I was away for a while, came back and everyone else introduced themselves, so I might as well too!

My name is Krystel Theroux and I am the Head of Guest Relations for Phoenix Comicon 2009, January 23rd-25th 2009 at the Mesa Convention Center.  As every new convention needs staff members and volunteers, I too, need volunteers!  I am now looking for volunteers to be a part of the Guest Relations Team, which has three parts to it: Liaisons, Transportation and Runners.   I will be interviewing individuals to be a part of the Guest Relations team.  What I am looking for in individuals who would like to be a part of the Guest Relations Team is:

- Responsibility
- Trustworthiness
- Professionalism
- Courteousness
- And most of all: loves to have fun!

What I must stress is that even though you apply for the position, it does not actually mean you get to be a part of the team right away.  I apologize for this, but I must interview and screen through individuals.

Here is a run-down of what each position does.

Guest Liaisons Guest liaisons would need to make sure the guests have water, gets to his or her panels and autograph sessions and provides him or her with anything he or she might need. Since we have so many guests at Phoenix Comicon, you may need to escort two or three guests at a time, and may interact with numerous guests throughout the convention.  Liaisons will be needed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Possibly Thursday evening.

Transportation The transportation aspect  involves a team of drivers and greeters who can pick up guests from the airport, drop them off at the airport, run out and grab things from stores if guests need something or take them out to dinner/lunch.  If a guest needs a lemon for their concert, we run out and get a lemon.  If they would like to go to In-N-Out burger for dinner, we take them.  The guests also of course need to get to and from the airport!  At the airport, I need greeters to pick up the guests and welcome them to Arizona, then take them to their vehicle to be transported to the convention location.  See what I mean?  Transportation = Drivers! , most of the time. =)  I need transportation team members for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Runners The runners are also an important part of our Guest Realtions team.  The runners would be running things for our guests and vendors.  If a guest needs water or food, then we have a runner run and get water or food for that guest.  If the guest requested something from the store (Like lemons), the runner would run to get the lemons from the transportation team member and then bring it to the guest wherever the guest might be.  The runners will be needed Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

A cell phone is not required to be a Guest Liaison, but is highly recommended.  Walkie talkies are a bit expensive and I will not have enough for every person on the Guest Liaison team.  Cell phones are a great way to get a hold of each other, and do not cost anything to use during the convention!

If you are interested in the position, please send me an e-mail at: guestrelations@phoenixcomicon.com.  Thank you very much for your interest in the Guest Relations team. I look forward to hearing from you!

Division openings [April 8th
@ 8:31pm

Hiya Gang!!!

Mist On Fire here....and today I would like to announce some Division openings.All of the following conventions currently have no Skirt representation;some are the established Divisions that have had no response from the Leaders after an extended grace period to reclaim,and others have no assignment yet.

the list of available cons is:

Comic Con- California
Sac Anime- Sacramento, CA
Animazement- Durham, NC
Daigacon- Bowling Green, KY
Fanime- San Jose, CA
ikasucon- Fort Wayne, IN
Nan Desu Kan- Denver, colorado
Nekocon- Minnessota
Katsucon- Arlington, VA
Animethon- Edmonton, Alberta
A-Kon- Dallas Texas
Anime La- Los Angeles Ca
auroracon- Alaska

Please contact me at Divisions@miniskirtarmy.org if you are interested in leading a Division,or have any other questions about the list.We must ask that all interested applicants be a minimum of 16 years of age.Some conventions require a minimum age of 18 to sign for a con event or panel and you may need a parent or other person to help you in that effect should that turn out to be the case,so individual circumstances may apply.Prior convention experience is a plus.

This will be handled just like a real job application,since this IS a job you'll be taking on....so be prepared to impress us with your credentials! :)

I check my mail on a daily basis,so I will respond ASAP when my email is received,no later than 48 hours.

Thanks a lot!!!

Sakura-con 2008 [April 1st
@ 10:01am


Wow what a week it has been.

Wednesday 03/26/2008- Work from 8am until 5pm. Very boring. lol. 5-7pm walked home and started packing everything except for the toiletries needed in the morning. Went over to Seans to get my corset laced and off to Bob1’s to claim Bryan’s and mine’s MSA uniforms. Stayed there until 3AM finishing both uniforms.

Thursday 03/27/2008-

430 am Seans picks me up and kicks my butt off at the airport. Here I meet up with Toypink and we talk until its time to board. The plane ride is 2 hours and 56 minutes from wheels up til wheels down. At least this is what the flight attendant said. Toypink and I are out  like a light for about 2 hours. For the remainding hour I basically take pics of the scenery outside the window and learned that washington likes crop circles. lol I’ll have the picks posted later so that this makes sense.

Finally the plane Lands and I give Pyro a call. Supposidly she arrived about an hour before I did. Wow this girle is TALL! We do the formal introductions and talk for about 4 hours waiting for Talis to come fetch us from the airport... Before this takes place a killer migraine sets in and I am burning up and trying not to throw up everytime my pulse beats. Pyro and I go outside for a bit. The absolute freezing cold weather feels really good since I am burning up like crazy. I felt bad for Pyro cause she was wearing her OHC cosplay and was starting to shake from the cold while Im all "This is nice". I was the only idiot in a short sleeves shirt out in the cold unti lI got cooled off enough to put my hoddie ond and still stay outside. Poor Pyro... lol So We finally go back inside.It was nice to have company along the way except for the fact that I am ready to pass out from sheer exhaustion... A little bit longer and Talis arrives to claim us. We go back to her house to grab some stuff and we’re off to the hotel. Here is where we split from Pyro and go off to our hotel.

After all the situating is done I change into my MSA Cosplay and Im off to preregistration. What should have been a 10 minute trip up all of the escalators ended up being a 45 minute trip. Everyone either wanted pictures, Find out who I was supposed to be, or even find out how to sign up. It was a good start! Im the Pre regling I meet up with Bryan (Who cosplays as Armstrong). We get out bages and go back to my hotel room to get Bryans MSA cosplay. He was super excited to see how it turned out. Welp... lol The wrist areas were too small and he acquired more muscle to the biceps were too tight.. lol.. Either way he still looked really good.

After he left I was left to my own devices for a while so I wandered around the area outside the hotel. The Streets of Washington were a tad scary at 11pm. Lots of homeless people asking for monies. Lots of traffic and REALLY skinny roads. wow they were skinny.

At this point I got bored and wandered back to the Hotel lobby area and discovered one of my favorite places.. THE BAR.. lol.. 3 AMF’s later and Im ready for beds. Back at the hotel I crash and around 2-3 am Talis, Babycakes, and Mikey finally make it in. All lights go aff and its bedtimes.

Friday 03/29/2008

6am Revellie goes off on my cell phone to get me up to go to the gym. Made note to self that I needed to get up earlier cause the gym was packed. (I never made it back to the gym after today)

Get dressed and Im off with Talis in her canon skirt uniform and baby cakes dressed as military hughes. We wandered for a while with people taking our pics right and left. Popped our heads into opening ceremonies and then Talis dissapeared to take care of some con drama (She is on Staff). Babycakes, Mikey, and I go to the Ranger Panel. There are techinical difficulties everywhere. I thought Pyro was going to burst out crying from everything going wrong. Luckily Vic was there to hold the crowd over while Edo bean was being located with the 2nd computer. She is located and arrives. Vic continues to entertain the crowd while the 2nd computer is being loaded and ready to go. After all is said and done and the panel comes to a close I was a little sad that nothing more was said about the Ranger Uniforms. Cosplayzone works their booties off on these. I know. They live 20 minutes from me. This was the perfect opportunity to touch on them. It was an oppourtunity missed.

After this I Book it back to my hotel room to make sure ALL of my powerpoints are working and that my laptop has everything I need to make sure we are good to go for the MSA panel. yup. We’re good to go. I quickly run across the street to grab a Dulce De leche cheese cake for the Ranger dinner and find out the darn thing takes 2 hours to thaw.... crap and Sigh. No worrie. So I wander the dealers room for an hour. I picked up this fabulous corset made by timeless-trends.com. Its made out of Steel for the support thingies. It is also super comfortable and worth the 100 dollar price tag. I say this because everyone else was selling them for 3-400 dollars. eep!

Ranger dinner. While we are waiting for Vic I meet up with Crazy Mandy, Danny, and Matriarch. Then a crowd startes to build. Vic shows up in his Star Trek Cosplay. lol... I Hand him the cheese cake and he was floored that it was an entire cheese cake and not a slice. DUH! Its called SHARING. Haa haa haa. Now I must say in a sea of red I am the lonely lone figure in Blue. Muahaa haa haa!!! The Nickle Alchemist hand Vic this decently sized wrapped.... Thing... is all I can call it at this point. After 10 minutes of unwrapping its a cute little porcelian box containing... wait for it... a nickle... lol. After threatening Nickle’s life Vic is all hugs and smiles. I then Have to make my departure to the hotel room to get my laptop for the MSA uni.

"Well I hope the 3 of you have a great panel" That was Vic’s parting words.

Yes Vic the 3 panel holders and a STANDING ROOM ONLY crowd had an awesome time at the MSA panel. The Male uniform was a success thanks to Bryan and a small strip tease show. *WInk wink* The slideshow that My 2nd did was a hit and everyone was laughing as they saw the skirt antics and the Fuhrer antics. The amin power point show in my opinion needs a little more work since I am the one doing most of the talking. The recruiting Video that Boy Pyro did was awesome. *Looks at enlistment email* So far we have gained 8 new skirts from Sakura-con. I call that a success!

The rest of the con consited of loosing my eyesight from all the flashing bulbs, panels, and a few hitches in the road with a couple of photoshoots. Unfortunantly the MSA photoshoot never happened. We were never in the same place inorder to make it happen. No worries though I visited the photobooth and had my pics done and Bryan is having some done this week to post on the MSA website. Plus im sure I’ll find more pics of all of us when more peeps get theirs posted online.

Dinner mostly was at the cheesecake factory. Real food was nowhere to be found. That was sad since it heavily dented the wallet.lol. Nights were spent at the bar relaxing and watching the world go by. I was sad that it didnt snow hard enough to make a little snowman out. But I think I was the only one that was happy that it was freezing weather outside. I was in love.. lol

The trip home was........ interesting...... Then it was off to work to finalize my time card and passout.


Pics to come!
