    But no really. ;)

    Hi buddy! Welcome, or welcome back. I hope you like it here.

    What’s the origin of this name?

    Also. How much of your Dresden cosplay did you make? It was a good costume.

    Also also. This is another JCon recruit, yall. :)

    Welcome to TarValon.net!

    I too am a Dresden Files fan. It and Wheel of Time are right up there for my favorite series, although I recently read the published Stormlight Archives books and that is pretty good so far as well. Still need to read the other Sanderson books, though.

    Welcome to TarValon.net, Aramin! ^^ I also came back after drifting away. :lol

    I really like Androl, too. :) His scenes were some of my favorite towards the end.

    My favorite characters are Siuan (because she picks herself up after everything falls to pieces), and Aviendha (because I feel closer to her in personality.)

    I would love to check out the forum. I have a lot of ideas but just a fledgling talent to work with :)

    so Just to clarify in case it wasn't known but Summer is the reigning trivia champions at jordancon :whee

    its a hybrid of a couple names I've heard.

    for the Dresden costume I modified a leather trench coat adding the mantel to the back. I when to my grandfathers woods and found an oak tree for the staff and blasting rod which I stripped off the bark and snapped a little and then burned the ruins into them. The blasting rod I added a leather grip to it. finally I made the shield bracelet from some copper tubing and real silver wear. the handles of the silver wear were silver so I removed them and flattened the handles and tubing. I then cut and shaped semblances of kite shields and then etched some runes on them as well. finally I made a bracelet from faux silver rings and affixed the shields to it. so yeah that was my Dresden costume.

    I the hell is an Aramin :D3 Also it sort of is isn't it? A mild introductory course to learn about new individuals? Thats at least how I took it and I thought it would be fun to label it like that. :)

    Ohhhhh I do remember you telling me about the bracelet now, that’s quite a process.

    But I hadn’t heard how you made the staff and rod- VERY cool!!

    They have to be hosted somewhere online first- facebook is fine if they’re public, I think? Not sure tho. Folks here used to use photobucket iirc, but they became poopfaces. I’m not sure what site people usually use to host images now (like modified avatars and sigs)
    Among the icons above the reply box there is a picture one. Click that and enter the link to the photo you want to share. This also works with gifs.
    Let us know if that doesn’t help, maybe someone else can splain more clearly. :)
    Here’s one example:

    Hello again! If you click on the button next to the smiley, it will open a box, just copy the link to the pic in it, and you should be golden.
