RadCon Pics

I’m back from RadCon! Physically, at least.

The convention itself was a great deal of fun. My thanks to the convention for inviting me to be Author Guest of Honor, and even bigger thanks to Liz, Turtle, and all of the volunteers who worked to make the con happen.

Through no fault of the convention, travel was a bit of a mess. Our first flight home was cancelled and rebooked … or so we thought. As it turned out, Alaska Airlines only managed to rebook the first leg of a three-flight trip. So even though they assured us we were all set, we got to Seattle and were told our flight to Michigan was overbooked, we didn’t have seats, and would we like to stay in a hotel and fly out at 6 in the morning?

But we eventually made it back. I’m exhausted, way behind on email and other stuff, and could use a 12-hour nap, but I’m home.

I came away with bunches of pictures. Flickr has the full RadCon Album. A lot of these were shot at a distance, including the fire troupe pics, which were done with the new 55-250mm lens. Here are a few of my favorites…

Cosplay!

All in all, it was a fun weekend. Now I just need to get my brain back. I’m pretty sure it was lost somewhere between Seattle and Chicago. Hopefully one of the airlines will find it…

There were some excellent costumes! I wish I'd been able to get into the masquerade to see more of them.

Do you know whether the dog was cosplaying Robert Lopshire's Put Me In the Zoo? That was my husband's favorite book when he was tiny. Every Halloween he talks about putting colored spots on my white dog, but I don't know how to make the spots round enough on fur.

I don't think so - at least, his person didn't say anything about it. She just said the dog got decorated for every RadCon, and this year they'd gone with polka dots.

Between the Mario and the fire, this is a convention I very much want to be at.

It was a fun weekend, and there was a lot of interesting stuff going on -- significantly more than I was able to see :-)

I just got back from a con in CA (3 hour time difference, among other things) and am burnt to a crisp. Thankfully no huge travel issues, but oy, am I tired!

Glad yours went well.

Welcome home!

So now is the time when we nap for 18 hours straight, yes?

You bet! As soon as we've finished unpacking, dealing with all the issues that came up while we were gone, and at least in my case, seriously sucking up to four unhappy cats.
