Rhode Island ComicCon!

It was an off-weekend for me writing-wise, as I was in Providence to help my wife (Veronica of Storied Threads) work her booth at Rhode Island ComicCon.

It was a great weekend for her, and I had lots of fun communing with fellow geeks and, as always, grooving to some of the awesome costumes, starting with this kick-ass group doing “post-apocalyptic Wizard of Oz,” my favorite outfits of the show.

Here are some of the other cosplay highlights for me…

ConnectiCon – Day One

Something a little different this weekend…

My wife, Veronica, is vending this weekend at ConnectiCon, and I’m there helping her out at the Storied Threads booth. I’ve grown to enjoy working the cons, in part because I love cosplay watching. Today, day one of three, was not the best of days cosplay-wise, but there were some good ones.

On, and I also bumped into Diedrich Bader at the Starbucks in the convention center. Not as odd as running into former WWE Superstar Rikishi in the restroom at Rhode Island ComicCon, but not a lot can top that.
