Another fine weekend spent at Norwescon. This was my lucky 13th year in attendance, and either my third or fourth now as a pro on the costume track.
My badge was approved by the Ministry of Magic this year, and I got a Slyterin house badge as well.
As usual, there was costuming and geekery galore!
I didn't get to attend too many panels, since I was talking on so many of then, but I did get to hear Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett talk about and read from their newest book, Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention:
The husband rocked in his new frock coat:
And the munchkin did her darnedest to steal the show in her Jager outfit:
Both Friday and Saturday evenings, I put on party shoes and we hit various shindigs in the party wing:
And of course, there was mischief managed.
This year, I got to make myself a fuzzy critter at the Monster Mashup, a panel where we cut apart and reassemble stuffed animals. My critter was deemed especially disturbing, for some reason:
It was nicknamed "Little Squeaker" by the munchkin, as I found a squeaker from another disassembled stuffed animal and sewed in to my critter. It also made a new friend, as another attendee brought a little baby Cthulhu:
We finished off the weekend watching the Muggle Quiddich matches, and the munchkin got to play a couple of rounds in the under-14 games:
Sadly, all good things must come to an end.
The countdown now starts for Westercon and the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire.
