LVO 2016

Hey everyone – back from LVO 2016 and boy did I take a crapton of pictures. I had a great time even though my plans for the trip had to get altered slightly (details inside). Nonetheless I had a blast and met old friends, made some new ones, saw and met some internet famous people and overall had a great time and am inspired to get there again next year. This year was even bigger than last year and I can’t wait to get back there again next year – particularly to play 30k! Details inside…

The event was largely dominated by 40k, but many other games were represented, such as Warmachine/Hordes, Ininity, Drop Zone Commander, Malifaux, and more. Below is a chronicle of my (very positive) experience.

A Tale of 2 Geeks – Emerald City ComiCon 2013

My friend John and I attended Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle on March 2nd, 2013. Not a huge comics fan, but thought I would attend just to see what the scene was all about and maybe absorb some geek culture and people watch. What a show! We had fun, though what we saw that was deeply engaging for us was somewhat limited, but it afforded us a big opportunity to people watch and frankly see the good, the bad, and the truly weird in Cosplay! Check out the pictures below. A couple of videos at the end to show some…
