Carving Crayons At Fashion's Night Out NYC

Getting ready for the festivities at the Rockefeller Center.

Me in front of the doors at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Walking to Saks the morning of the event.

Me on the 4th floor of Saks 5th Ave.  I was scheduled to do some carving just a few feet away later that night.

Setting up
Setting for the night.
The set up was a little crazy and we started about 15 minutes late.  Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

The carving begins!

It was cool getting to talk to everyone.  They originally had set up some ropes around my table, but I wanted people to be able to come right up and see what I was doing.  I would have felt funny being roped off the whole night. :P

 Carving at Saks
I was carving for about 3 hours, but didn't even get close to done on that crayon.  I spent a lot of time talking with people.  It was also hard to concentrate with everything going on.  I had a lot of fun though, I hope everyone who attended had fun too.

The people, a very well dressed crowd.

A friend and I decided to joust with our giant crayons during the breakdown.  It was an amazing night.  A BIG thanks to everyone who came out!
