Home again from the convention. Had a great time, and everything went REALLY smoothly from the logistics side of things.
The big take home was I got to meet (and get drunk with… when my roommates brought him into my hotel room while I was sleeping) the director of Lloyd the Conqueror , and get a sneak preview showing of the movie before its release date.
It was a bit inside baseball for the mainstream, but anybody into Gaming or LARPing will love it, I suspect.
Also Erin is WAYY onto the pulse of the culture. My Little Pony is HUGE. We actually had a MLP event that was so big it quickly filled the room capacity so we moved it outside the convention just so everybody could have room. So many people dressed as the various Ponies (in human form, which was further interesting) this thing is HUGE.
Watched a few episodes of it myself in my down time, and it really is a damn good show.
So there’s that!
