GenCon 2012

Greetings from GenCon 2012!

Jason and Gene roused me out of my sick bed late last night to head to GenCon 2012 in Indianapolis. We had planned to have a few great days running around the convention center and causing havoc amidst the Indianapolis nightlife, so my health issues would have to take a backseat to the plans we had made.

The first thing I did was film a an effects-laden video starring myself as a Tony Stark type figure imbued with a glowing arc reactor and repulsor blasts. In only five takes, we had the sequence down. Now, we just have to wait a week or two for the effects to process.

Most of today was spent walking around with the three of us dressed up as Star Trek characters. Jason went as Kirk, I was Spock and Gene was Scotty. It was a lot of fun being approached by various con-attendees and being asked to pose for pictures with them. I felt like more of a celebrity than usual. Just before leaving the con for the evening, Jason and I played a few rounds of Dance Dance Revolution as Kirk and Spock, much to the delight of various onlookers. It was murder on my knees, though.
