OK here is my first draft at my "don't forget" list...

1 pair work jeans, 2 t-shirts per day of set-up work.
1 pair good jeans - for after set-up work or after costume days, 1 t-shirt per day of CON. (T-shirts over and beyond TD staffer shrits.)
Costume 1 - should be worn all day Thursday and Saturday
Costume 2 - should be worn all day Friday
Steel toe work boots
Costume boots
2x Baseball cap
Bandana - for sweat
Socks/underwear...
Sleep wear
Toiletries
Work gloves
Safety glasses
Digital camera + sticks and charger
Cell phone + charger
Wallet = hopefully with money
Food bars
H2O bottle with drink mix
GenCon Paperwork/maps - including BADGE/Tickets
Backpack - as part of my costume...what adventurer does not have a pack? And inside I think I should have a few tokens to bring too...

Did I miss anything - or does anyone have any tips?

THANKS!

Hopefully the actual tokens aren't hidden quite so well in the Dungeon. ;)

Tokens? Tokens? People take tokens? Oh dear, whatever am I supposed to pack then?
Hmm, you all must have the extra space to pack tokens in place of an ionizer, yes that must be it!
:P

Oh don't forget those Bracers you ordered, I'm sure those were for the Mrs's too. Yessiree, she'll be all decked out. Xena couldn't stop your wife equipped like that.
hehehehehehehe

Bracers still are in the hands of the Dwarves...I have until the next cycle of the moon then it will be too late for this trip...

A Cleric with un protected arms - what will I do...???

Just keep your hands inside your armor. Or... behind your back. ^_^

There's always tied pieces of felt to the forarms Or dyed gauze strips for the wrapped kung-fu look...Or you can do what my buddy Eric always did and wrap 2" anchor chains around your forearms about 3 layers thick. Very intimidating and makes your hands turn all white and numb...I always believed Eric wrapped them a bit tight and he wasn't the brightest bulb in the matrix now that I recall.
In Kibo we trust.

Anchor chains??? *blink blink*

I think I'll stick with dusting my arms and shoulders with glitter.

Hey Bro, did you want me to make some tie on sleeves for you? You could tie them onto your tunic. I've got a man's doublet pattern that has them, I could probably alter it to suit your needs if need be. Just hollar, k?

Thanks but no, I should be fine...I have trim in hand so I need to sew that on AND make token bracers...so maybe those bracers will get me thru.

Thanks for the kind offer sis!
