Dragon*Con 2010 Thursday

Well Dragon*Con is over and I am finally able to start getting some pictures posted. I had a great time at the con this year, and don’t really have any complaints that the con can control aka drunken football fans starting fights and stealing badges etc. We had a good year on our coverage with Geeks of Doom and look forward to covering it again next year.

Most of Thursday night was spent in the Marriott shooting back to back with Chase of Chasing Photography where we had big lights setup just to play around with some lighting setups.

Here are a couple of sample shots.

8 Days and Counting

Well the time is getting closer to my vacation for the year known at Dragon*Con. While finding other costume parts, I found my green BDUs that I had planned on modding for last years d*c, and decided that I should go ahead and do that for this year. As of right now, i have one shoulder patch on correctly, and one that needs to be seam ripped out and redone. I then need to do the buckles and all of that, but it shouldn’t take long. I was worried about the strapping being too dark, but then found an old belt type thing from something in my costume stuff that happens to be 1″ olive straps that are perfect.

My Lostume is mostly done, but I am still waiting for a patch to arrive. I ordered one from Patchgeeks.com on August 4th, and it has yet to arrive. Jen is sending me an extra one she had, so I should have a patch of some variety. I will be wearing the Lostume with everyone starting on Friday morning of con, so it would be a big time crunch trying to get to the dealers room first thing.

In other news, I will be shooting officially for GeeksofDoom.com taking pictures for the articles that TechGonzo writes. I am not sure of what panels this will entail, but there is time to get all of that figured out. I know that I will be shooting the Rebel Legion photo, the Slave Leia photo shoot, and the Harley/Ivy shoot. I am going to try to make it to as many of the big photo shoots as possible as it will be a good chance to use the wide angle lens I am renting for the week.

I still need to do my booze shopping as well as actually packing my stuff. My goal is to be packed completely by Monday so that it will be out of the way. It is always easy to pack for d*c, as it is costumes and then some regular clothes to wear on the way home. We are leaving early Wednesday morning, will get to ATL, do the grocery store shopping that is needed, and will then be heading to geek trivia with the fleet that night before heading to the hotel early Thursday morning. The goal is to get checked in early and have some time to chill before getting in line for our badges when the doors open that afternoon. I really can’t wait. Can we just fast forward the next week?

D*C Approaches

Well Dragon*Con is less than 40 days away. I finally got around to ordering what I need for my one new costume this year. I am not going for anything elaborate, but I did opt to get all of the screen accurate brand variations to make my costume as correct as possible. I am making a Dharma Initiative jumpsuit. I have decided to have mine read either Photographer or Historian, as I will probably be doing that more picture taking than costuming this year. I won’t be able to get everything assembled until I am back from round two of being in Albuquerque, but all that will be left is to get my embroidery done and sew on my patch. I am looking forward to the fact that this will be like my BSG jumpsuit, in that it is one of the most comfortable costumes that exists. The other costumes I am taking this year are my BSG Deck suit, BSG Marine, possibly my Resident Evil Centurion, and if I get it finished, my Green BSG BDUs. Add in my kilts, and a few T-shirts and I will be set for the duration of the con.

I will be taking pictures for some of Tom’s articles for GeeksofDoom.com which should be pretty cool as well. Overall, I am mainly ready for a vacation and a chance to get to hang out with the friends and fellow geeks that I normally only get to see once a year.
