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.
