GenCon 2014 Summary

I had a great time this past weekend at GenCon 2014!  My wife and I went all four days this year, which was a big undertaking.  This year, they had the entire convention center!  I have never been to a con that big!  We got to spend time with some friends, play some cool games, buy some of those cool games, meet a couple ‘famous’ cosplayers and see some great cosplays.  I got a few of my Magic: The Gathering cards signed by artist Terese Nielson.  We got to see Wil Wheaton and a couple producers from the Geek & Sundry YouTube channel’s TableTop at a cool and hilarious panel.  We bought some nerd-tastic baby stuff for the coming nerdling.  I got the chance to meet and get photos with a couple cosplay ladies I follow on Facebook, Toni Darling and Envy Us Deviant.  You should check out their pages, as they are awesome and a good at what they do.  I was able to have a different cosplay every day, myself.  Granted, a couple of them were last-minute and not overly phenomenal.  But, I had folks asking for pictures all four days, so that was nice.  I will see about starting a public page to share pictures with you guys, as my personal Facebook page has some high privacy settings.  All in all, it was a fantastic weekend and four days off with my lovely wife!  I can’t wait until next year!  Stay tuned, as I got the August Loot Crate today, so an unboxing post should be up in the next couple days.  Also, don’t forget that Weird Al Wednesday is tomorrow!
