Tonight was the first night of ICON, The northeast’s largest convention of Science Fiction, Fact and Fantasy! I worked all week (and even made a run to Home Depot at 12 Midnight last night) to finish the Helmet of my Spaceball costume… It was well worth it. Even with some of the defects in the helmet (I couldn’t get it as smooth/glossy as I wanted) it was a hit. I must have taken a picture with just about everyone there, including one kid who thought I was a character from Hitchhiker’s Guide (Not everyone there is an 80’s sci-fi spoof fan).
It was such a hit I am going to bring the costume with me to the Costume Ball tomorrow night if I can get to it in time, or if my friend’s party doesn’t run alongside it.
During the day tomorrow, I think I’m just going to play photographer and get pictures of everyone in their costumes and the different events going on. It will be a lot of fun (as usual!)
