From February 12th to 26th, I'll be in Washington, DC and during some of that time, I will be wearing this hat:
Like it? Made it m'self—first time I ever tried painting fabric, so it's a bit of a mess, but I'm uber proud of it. It's based on Urahara's bucket hat, and one of the places I plan to wear it is at an anime convention called Katsucon.
I had much fun making the cap, and I thought it might also be fun to play a little Hide-and-Seek. If you'll be in the DC area during the two weeks mentioned above, and you see someone wearing this hat—
—Then walk up to that person and ask, "Are you Rowan McBride?"
If it is me, I'll flash you a big goofy grin and give you a prize ranging from an autographed 8x10 featuring one of my book covers to a brand spanking new copy of Want Me. It's been forever since I've played Hide-and-Seek, and it would be amazingly cool if someone found me. So, just to be sure, let's the flash that hat one more time:
If you know people that dig my stories, tell them it's game on. Let's play!
