FABA Convention

Post by mespo on Mon Mar 09, 2015 8:03 pm

I was just wondering if anyone on this forum is attending the FABA Convention in May in Florida? I was planning to go. If any of you have been before, was it worth the time and expense for the trip? Did you learn a lot in the workshops? I'd love to hear about your experience.

My head hurt every night from the amount of knowledge I received. I would go back to my room and practice on my face, arms, legs, and be raring to go the next morning!
I met Paola Sunglow Amadio, Katurah Hall, Jessica Mellow, Denise Cold, and many more fellow "Facepaintforum" peeps.
We are going to be moving this year. I asked my husband if he would mind moving our household without me, if I promised to have a terrible time at FABAIC. He raised his eyebrow at me. I cannot lie. I would have a fantastic time at FABAIC!

Oh! Paola!  
I will be at FABAIC in 2016!
This year, we are moving, after 18 years in the same place.  We are downsizing.  Our youngest is 17.  Our oldest is already out of the house, living in Brooklyn.  Our middle is planning to move out soon.
While I would love to leave the hubster with all the actual moving job... it would never be enough pay back for the time we packed, and moved, in a four day period.  (The incoming renter offered us two months rent to leave right away).  I had a six week old baby and a 23 month old.  Both in cloth diapers.
Hmmmm....
Maybe I can remind him...
and leave the family to move and come back and be all moved in!!!!!

They have cancelled FABAIC for 2016. It is on for this year, 2015, but not for 2016.

They are hoping to bring it back in 2017.

I am sad, as I am not going this year, so that makes at least two years before I get to go again Sad

But, I am getting my fix from BayFaba, in San Francisco, late August. www.bayfaba.com

Acronyms!

FABAConvention is actually the convention is St Louis.

www.fpbaconvention.com

Which may be a better date for most face and body painters who are busy working in May and August. The St Louis convention is in November. Top Instructors, airbrush, face painting, glitter tattoos, balloon twisting, balloon decor, body painting and competitions.

FABAIC feels so close, and yet so far ): I'm bringing my husband to the states this year, and am still scraping enough money together to satisfy the bureaucrats. But a huge, amazing convention, in my first year of painting? In my home state?

Fessy, I have a fundraising idea. If people donated $1 for every cookie I baked for you, I might have enough money for the ticket and you might have enough cookies for a sugar coma.

Love to go but it would cost so much money and not to mention the length in flight from Western Australia
