Fabbulas 2010... What to bring?

Post by Lady Jayde on Tue Oct 19, 2010 11:21 pm

Hi Guys,
This is my first time going to Fabbulas and I've been pondering what all to bring with me for about a month now. After speaking to Cyde, I know NOT to bring my full blow kit with me, so I'm going to pair it down to a single case instead of my standard two (though I think even that may be too much). What other things should I bring? Also, should I leave my good camera at home and bring something small that I can slip in my pocket? I'm afraid that I'll forget something I'll need and will have to go to the vendor room...oh the horror affraid . What are you guys bringing?

I hate what the airlines are doing to the consumer! Whenever my mom comes to visit, she MAILS her clothes to us and then mails them back home before she leaves! She saves well over $100 that way! It's stupid. Next thing you know, painters are going to be mailing their kits to other painters just get from one place to another!

I would suggest calling the airline first or checking their website, or I'm sure one of the instructors (ie: Pashur, Mark, Nick/Brian, et. al) would be more than happy to tell you what they do when they travel with their kits.

Has there ever been complaints of theft at conventions like these? I want to bring my good camera, but I don't want to risk it if this is the case.

Ditto...
Well, if all else fails, you could mail your kit to me and I'll bring the box with me? We may look silly, but we'll be happy...

In May when I flew to Florida for FABAIC I brought my mini set with me on the plane.

I suggest the "appetizer" sized palettes of your paints along with regular sized black and white. That about covers it. No need to bring glitter or rainbow cakes really.

A few brushes, some dark hand towels, maybe 15 sponges at the most and you are good to go.

The worst part of bringing too much stuff is having to lug it from class to class, unload, set up and then repack it all after the class is over.

I'll be driving to FABBULAS so I don't have to worry about the number of bags I bring. But I do know I won't be bringing my whole kit with me.

I was at Fabbulas last year, and felt quite safe with my fancy camera. I think you should bring it! The convention is small enough to be intimate and - at least last year - there was no issues with that. I CANT WAIT!

I was a bit disappointed that the vendor room didn't have better deals.. but I guess you save on shipping. Point being bring the color/brushes you like !

As for the rest Michelle said it all. But DO bring glitter -- we'll be jamming and everything looks better with glitter Wink
