    I think one of the most important things was left off of this schedule. Won't there be a giant cardboard cut out of Kander with a face-hole so players can take photos with a KanderWig? I didn't see that on your list.

    Failing that, perhaps players can take turns crawling under Kander's luscious mane and take photos sharing hair with the man Himself.

    And the new quest idea for next Tinkerfest is set!

    Looking forward to the panels. Especially the Q&A. There will be exile/faction issues brought forth.

    lol. I've forwarded this idea along because it's hilarious, but probably too late. =P

    There is plenty of time. And can be done for under $100 bucks.

    What you need is an intern (or other low paying entry level developer).
    A bunch of cardboard boxes (can be found at any major retailer, or im sure you guys get paper by the box you can use) same day printing service.

    Get a nice picture of Kander standing and crop it into a couple of pictures (get the art guys to help with this). can get you posters 24"x36" for 19.99 same day pickup.
    Glue posters onto cardboard and rig a stand.

    Heck, you could even setup the twitch desk and have pictures of Kander, Holly and yourself sitting there for people to pose for!

    Request for next year: Don't have Live during Shark Week.

    Or, just use the one on his Linkedin profile.

    Then just crop out everything but the hair.


    Then use an overlay in a graphic editing program to add it to any photo.

    While Feldon, Dethdlr, and I are running the EQ2U/DA panel, I think I'll send the wife over to the guide panel to get me some cookies!
