Suggestion: Avalon characters in Cos-Play? Not just Anime, but *any* costume. See the closing credits of any Daria episode for examples. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif">

Awww! Warm and cozy-soft Josh! Just like that stupid SNUGGLE bear!<P>I love the anniversary idea thingy you've got here, but I really can't think of anything. Hmm.<P>Maybe... maybe... remember the Alison at the coffee shop fanart that was oh so very nice? I'd love to see a nice, full-color semi-candid shot of the cast's major players hanging around in the coffee shop, with their most prominent character trait evident in what they're doing. Something large enough for a decent desktop wallpaper. Big enough so that it doesn't look crowded, but the characters aren't tiny dots either. Imagine drawing it at normal Avalon strip scale, but the strip is 1.5x as wide, and three or four times as high. Something that'd look good printed on the cover of the next book or something. You know what I mean? Promotional material!<P>It could even be a collaboration. If you don't think coloring it is your strongest ability, you could certainly leave that up to this forum's higher-level CG artists. Backgrounds too. If you want, you'd only have to draw the characters themselves.<P>I dunno.. just an off-the-cuff thought.<p>[This message has been edited by saturn (edited 11-05-2001).]

I think an image of the cast of characters is good.

How about having a special guest strip made by a fanartist or a Happy Anniversairy strip featuring characters from other comics strips (example Bun-bun from Sluggy Freelance celebrating Avalon 2th Anniversairy with a bottle of 151 or the cast of College Roomies from Hell, GPF,Bruno the Bandit, Clan Bob, Bad Boys of Computer Science, Framed,the Japanese Beetle)

Hopefully, by November 8th KAH and I (and Anh Minh, was it?) will have the webspace for the suite (is that the correct technical term) worked out, and perhaps you can link it from the news...<P><plug>Also, my <a href="http://scatterplot.keenspace.com/">comic</a> debuts on the 8th...</plug>

Avalon's 2nd anniversary is coming up on Thursday, Nov. 8th. Just thought I'd remind everyone. Perhaps there should be another "gala." ;-) Although, a non-pornographic fanart thread would be cool...<P>But anyways, I thought I might mention that the Art section is getting a massive update on the 8th. There will be roughly <I>150</I> new pieces of artwork, in addition to the existing 200-odd works. Yes, these things have definitely been accumulating over time. :-)<P>Now then... anyone have any good ideas for how we can mark the anniversary? Some sort of special front page thing? An event of some sort? Anything that I can theoretically achieve within 4 days? ;-)<P>JOSH.

Hey, whatever happened to the real-life lookalike thing? Halloween kind of came and went...<P>Can we retrofit that idea to be a 2nd Anniversary event?<P>------------------
