It’s been a long weekend, but I finally recovered. ICON was this weekend and as usual, It kept me busy (and awake!) Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I didn’t do too much “con” stuff.. I pretty much hung out with my friends and wandered around the Stonybrook campus. I didn’t bring the camera with me at all this year, and I guess that’s okay. It was nice not having to be responsible for 500 pounds of tech gear!
I didn’t dress up friday, but planned on wearing my Spaceball costume on Saturday. When I went to try on the jumpsuit, I found it didn’t fit. I flew down to a paint shop early that morning and picked up another one, but it too didn’t fit that well, and looked like crap. I need to pick up white pants and top to complete the costume. I brought along my rennaisance garb so I just wore that. It didn’t feel complete until I bought a Baseball-sized D20. Then I turned from Medieval to a Dungeons and Dragons character. At least It was more unique than just Medieval garb.
Sunday, with a little coaxing, I decided to walk around with the Spaceballs helmet (thanks Pam!) and I’m glad I did.. It still got tons of great reactions, even without the rest of the costume.
I’ve got a few costume ideas to work on for next year. primarily, I want to get a Stargate Jaffa warrior costume as well as a black Spaceball costume (Full armor/black helmet). I’ll begin working on it, and who knows, Maybe I’ll make an appearance to the next con wearing it.
Sleep was once thing that I got very little of. I only got about 3 hours of sleep Friday night and only 1.5 to 2 hours Saturday night. I was exhausted, but made up for it last night. I think I’m adjusted back to my normal schedule now.
