More pics from the Clockwork Ball.

Some of you have inevitably seen this on facebook, (and a few of you now on my LJ were, y'know, there) but here it is again.

Last Saturday, Abby and I went with thunderclap8 in our steampunk finery to the Clockwork Ball. Here's the pic taken by the professional photographer there:

Clockwork Ball

DragonCon* in one week! I can't wait! We're totally pantsonfire getting the last bits of our costumes together (the con is almost 4 whole days after all, can't wear the same thing the whole time)

*oh, and I guess PAX as well..... idunno, whatever, I'm sure it'll be nice too

Putting the finishing touches on our costumes as well! We can't wait to see you guys, and knock around the con in our finery!

The photo looks great. Have fun at Dragon*Con! One of these years I'll go there myself.

It was nice meeting you crazy kids there.

I'd go to Dragoncon if it weren't off in the sinister South, and not the same weekend as PAX! Maybe next year, when there is a PAX east coast to go to instead of WC. Of course, that doesn't solve the whole issue of being in the south :P

We are a land of charm and gentility. And saturated fats.

And innate loathing for liberal yankee boys like myself!

But I AM a liberal yankee boy and have lived here for four years. I cast "detect loathing" and got nuthin'

But what's your wis modifier?

I don't know, my week spent with my southern relatives in Tennessee has made me dislike the region as a whole :P
29th-Aug-2009 08:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but cities like Charlotte and Atlanta are the "new south". Not to mention that Dragon*Con is 40,000 geeks from all over the country.

Y'all are adorable. :)

Been thinking 'bout you.

Yeah, PAX will probably be nice.

What with Beatles Rock Band coming out a few days later.

I'll be sure to ask what Terry Gilliam, Patrick Stewart, and Edward James Olmos think about it.... in person.... cuz they'll all be there... at Dragon*Con... not at PAX.

I want a cool costume, maybe starting with something like this: http://bobbasset.com/?p=207

I went to the link, but all I saw was a lawsuit.
29th-Aug-2009 07:14 pm (UTC)
for copyright infringement?

For eye injury.

That guy's stuff is awesome, but I can't imagine wearing anything covering my face for that long. The guys playing Wookies and Alien-aliens last year would take their masks off to walk outside in the hot Atlanta sun and you could just see the heat rolling off their heads. (and they were a bit stinky too)
