We momentarily interrupt Vintage Scifi Month. . .
Posted January 19, 2017on:
well, you’re month doesn’t need to be interrupted, but mine is going to be!
As I always do in mid January, this weekend I’m headed to ConFusion, a science fiction and fantasy convention held in the suburbs just outside Detroit. If you find yourself over there, head on over to the Sheraton at 8 Mile and I-275 to hang with 900 (or more?) of your closest friends. If your comment gets stuck in moderation, it’s because wifi will be iffy.
I’ve even got some panels!
Friday: 6pm – Panel on Alternate History
Sunday 10am: Scifi Fantasy All Stars! Draft a team and beat the existential crisis!
Sunday 11am: How the F*** do I make this? Answering your cosplay prop questions!
For a few hours on Saturday, I will be walking around the hotel cosplaying a My Little Pony. Making papercraft ears is fun!
Lessons I’ve learned from attending previous conventions:
dress in layers. one panel room will be freezing, the next will be boiling.
haven’t worn high heels in a year? Probably not a good idea to wear them to a convention.
drink as much water as you can. the humidity in convention hotels is approximately minus a million percent.
bring snacks to stash in your hotel room, and to have in your tote bag. snacks are your friend.
People watching is THE BEST.
