Back from Arisia

Just got back from the Arisia Con. COLD. And the snow nearly crashed me on the Mass Pike, though it cleared once I got south and west of Worcester (pronounced Woo-Stah).

The Battlestar Galactica panel was great. Because no one claimed any special expertise and everyone just talked about what they enjoyed and found interesting.

The other two panels I was on - not so much. Both times, one person made it clear s/he was the expert and was going to talk as much as possible to show how smart they are. And I let them. Like I have something invested in their enormous but fragile ego and their longing to gain 15 minutes of fame in a hotel full of other fans dressed in chainmail and Sailor Moon outfits? Sheesh. Go for it.

And the guy with the R2D2 more realistic than the one they used in the films - priceless.

No, all the Lolita-type and fairy-type outfits were worn by (so far as I could tell from a polite distance) females. In general there was more costuming at this one.

Nobody dressed as Coco B. Ware, complete with parrot? That I find distressing.
