Dragon*Con and other stuff

Well it is hard to believe that Dragon*Con was only a week ago. I had a blast this year. The deck suits that I made were a huge success and and I ended up winning Best Disheveled Colonials at the Colonial Fleet costume contest. We put on the suits on Thursday night and instantly people wanted our pictures. This is also when I had my first encounter with Aaron Douglass. I was in the Hyatt and someone was taking my picture. I felt a tap on my shoulder and heard, Awesome costume man. I turned and said thanks, and then realized who it was who had complimented me. It was Aaron. I said thanks again, and that got my whole weekend off to a badass start. When at the BSG party, Aaron looked at our suits and said, “These are scarily accurate, and I feel like I should be at work.” That was about the best compliment that I could have gotten.

We also busted out the toaster child that we carried around for a while, and people just loved it.

Our full BSG group.

I also became a tattoo artist on She needed the tattoo for her Starbuck costume, and here is what I drew for her.

Everything else was a blast, and I don’t really want to take the time to write about it more. Needless to say, I had a blast.

The new job is going well, and I am almost in full swing of things. I think that I am going to like it, so that is a good thing.

Here is the other thing that I recently added to my living room. I finally broke down and got a real TV. I got a 56″ HD tv with a HD-DVD player. Here is a picture.

I christened it with 300 and V for Vendetta in HD, and now have settled down to watching BSG season 1. It is like having my own personal movie theater. I love it.
