The weekend is supposed be crazy here in San Antonio with 5000 people coming overall, and masquerade day on Saturday (costumes). Yesterday early arrivals came, and most of us who are exhibiting got set up.
Having attended a ComicCon before, this event has some of the same feel but is a lot less glitzy. It’s definitely a true geek’s event with tons of fun conversations. Anyway, enough blabbing, here are some pictures to give you an idea! I’ll be adding more photos here throughout the weekend.
First, the prestigious Hugo Awards are given out at the event. I plan on reading the five nominees and submitting a ballot by July 31. It will be awesome to see the program, meet science fiction authors, and talk about the craft.
Then there is the costume contest. I went to the Emerald City ComicCon last year during a layover in Seattle. What a crazy event! The costumes were wild and fun, and, well, nerdy! The science fiction convention costumes may be even crazier!
