EDIT: Here, as promised, is a really bad pic of the Edaniel plushie.
It looks like crap in the pic, I'm sorry! My camera flash won't cooperate and I am SO tired right now, I can't do any better right now. I'm exhausted, been working on book 3 all night. But regardless, you can see the whole toy and how big it is. He turned out slightly bigger than he would be in reality, so I guess you could say he's LARGER THAN LIFE.
Edaniel was VERY hard to make as a toy, because I've only ever imagined him in 2D. You'll notice you never even see his head from the side in the books...only the front and back. That's just the way he is. Edaniel thinks he looks fat in three dimensions. I say he's being picky. Enjoy!
Welp, some people have noted me and said they can't wait for the pictures, they want to buy tickets now to be sure they're included in the raffle. So here goes:
At Connecticon this year in Hartford, CT, on July 7th to 9th, I'll be holding a Giant Edaniel Plushie Raffle! People who are entered can win a lifesize plushie of Edaniel from Bizenghast! For those who aren't attending the con, you can still buy tickets for the raffle online and have your prize shipped to you free of charge.
In addition to a super grand prize giant Edaniel plushie, I'll also be raffling off a small plushie keychain Edaniel, a signed copy of Bizenghast book 2, and a pack of ten Bizenghast postcards. The first ticket drawn in the raffle gets the postcards, second gets the book, third gets the keychain and the final ticket drawn gets the big Edaniel. So there are many prizes to be won, and you DON'T have to be present at Connecticon to win them!
I'll post a picture of the prizes online within a few days in this journal. Raffle tickets payments through Paypal are accepted if you will not be at the convention. Tickets are $1.00 apiece, as many as you want (buying more than one ticket not only increases your odds of winning, but you may also win more than one prize!). I'll be accepting payments for tickets up until Thursday the 6th of July, at NOON (eastern time). At that time I'll be leaving for the convention and I'll add all online raffle tickets to the raffle box. If the winner is an online winner, you'll get your prize or prizes shipped to you free of charge after I return from the con.
Sorry, I can't accept any kinds of payments but Paypal, as anything mailed to me might not arrive in time for the raffle.
So for those who are new to Paypal, here's how it goes:
1. In your Paypal account, hit the Send Money tab up top.
2. Enter my Paypal email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the recipient space.
3. Enter the amount of money you wish to send (each ticket is one dollar, no limit no how many tickets you can buy.)
4. Be SURE to include your current email address (for confirmation), a correct shipping address where your prizes can be shipped after the raffle, as well as how many tickets you are buying, in the comment box! (this makes it easier for me to record so there's no confusion). If you do not send your shipping address, you won't get your prizes if you win and they'll be given to the next drawn ticket instead!! And that be no good for YOU!
5. Hit send!
Once you've done this, you'll receive an email receipt from me confirming your entry in the raffle, as well as the number or numbers on your raffle tickets. Each raffle ticket is assigned a six-digit number so that the drawing will be fair and anonymous.
Pictures of the giant Edaniel and other prizes will be posted Thursday night/Friday morning of this week, in this journal! Good luck to everyone in the raffle and thanks for supporting your local Marty!
