Recalling a small experience from Pax

Two Bioshock Infinite cosplayers were picking up their tickets from me, and I remarked to them that they were from the gay barbershop quartet, right?
They were really surprised at the fact that I knew where they were from. “How do you know?” they asked.
I was surprised at their question, and replied, “I played the game…”
“Oh.” They took their badges, and went to find the two other members of their quartet, I assume.
It was an odd little experience. I wonder if they were surprised because they thought maybe I was hired staff and somehow an outsider, or if they were surprised because I’m a woman. Kind of weird either way, at a hugely popular gaming convention.

Here’s a picture of yarn I bought in Boston. It sparkles.

In unrelated news, I recently bought a few notebooks, and placed an order with Goulet Pens for another pen, another notebook, and a package of ink samples. I may have a problem.

PaxEast 2011

Funny how planning a wedding in under two months sucks up a lot of time and energy, even when not doing planning related stuff. Sunday is my bridal shower, and I am… wary.

Anyway, here are some photos of PaxEast, taken on my phone camera.

Day One, already pretty crowded

Automata, excellent cosplayer

Trying on Utilikilts

Playing Super Dungeon Explore

It was pretty fun. =)

People could climb up into this thing and it would open up and make noise.

Learning to play Dungeons and Dragons (4th ed.)

NCSoft showed off new classes for Guild Wars 2. It looks fantastic.

Castle Crashers on an arcade thinger. I liked it so much, I came home and bought it on the PS3. 🙂
