Cool stuff seen at Gen Con

The best chainmail bikini at the con.

In addition to playing games, buying stuff, and hanging out with friends, seeing all the cool people and things is just as much a part of the experience as the rest of it. People in costume are always fun.  All the games are cool.  Just seeing the crowd of people sharing your interest is awesome.  Gen Con did not lack in awesome.

I have provided for you a few images of what I thought was pretty cool about Gen Con 2009.

I don't know what the costume is, but damn it's awfully cool!
LOTR
These guys *said* they weren't up to any mischief. Still... I wonder.

I am totally doing my hair this way. Or would. I really don't have enough to pull that off. Stupid hair.
Thor
Best Thor ever.
HUSSEY
Coolest thing at Gen Con? Chris Hussey's thumb. It's true.

I will have all my Gen Con pics loaded to Flickr soon.

  1. Man, if only you’d got the chick dressed as Cortana. Wow….just wow.

    And that pic doesn’t even come close in portraying how awesome that Nazgul was. He TOWERED over everyone. It was like the real thing. I was scared. Thankfully, I had Aron to cuddle up to.

  2. Yes, my thumb is quite cool. It is known to have many a power. Even I have not discovered them all. In this very picture, for example, you can see that I am able to attract the gaze of Ed.
