New Orleans Comic Con

or you could call it "Lyn wanted a day to just ramble"

A few weekends ago, was the New Orleans’ Comic Con. I got two tickets at work, so The Gentleman Friend and I went. We had a great time (after we spent a frustrating hour trying to park). We really just walked around looking at stuff and people. We checked out the Game room and I got to play a demo of a table top RPG game called Malifaux which was really cool. I was drawn to this game because the “board” set ups would work awesome with D&D. Then the rep for the game talked to me about it and then set me up with a demo. It was fun and I think I’ll get it to play with The Gentleman Friend (and then once we get down some mad skills, we’ll try to find other players around here).

The Terraclips systems were what drew me to the Malifaux game.

Got to see Captain Kirk but didn’t feel like paying $75 to get an autograph. But that’s ok, there was plenty of other people to see.

Then we went to the costume contest which was a lot of awesome.

Winner of best male "hero" costume.

Winners of the best group/couple costumes.

Winner of best in show.

We were going to go to the Drink and Draw party afterward, but didn’t feel like walking forever to the car after drinking. So we went home and planned to come back the next day. We never made it back, but it was still fun.
