You never know where you might end up during an author visit. Seriously. Dia Calhoun and I just returned from the Cavalcade of Authors in Pasco. I'll do a wrap up post about the awesome event soon, but it was RADCON who helped fund the author extravaganza. Dia and I were immersed in the sci-fi con that is:
This guy guarded the entrance to our hotel wing.
I saw things I've never seen before. Sorry I was slow to pick up the camera. Not sure of the protocol in the moment, I now realize that most would have loved to have their photos taken. *sigh* Well, here's a bit of what I saw:
* Weapons for zombie defense
* Animal tails swinging on backsides
* A lot of tinfoil hats to ward off aliens
* A shop filled with wands
* A 300 lb man dressed as a baby doll
* A lot of steampunk
* Manga characters
* Captain Kirk
* Zombie boy
And that's just what comes to mind right now...
I LOVED IT! What a blast mixing with folks who are such avid fans. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a YA Con? Just imagine the guest list. In the meantime, I'll be thinking about returning next year. But what will I wear?
