Fun at NorwesCon

I had lots of fun at NorwesCon. The first amusing surprise was that I had pre-regged from last year and actually could've gone to more of the Con on Friday night. Unfortunately, I only had the time to go to it on Saturday and had planned on only getting a Saturday pass. If I recall correctly, I only paid $25 for the pre-reg last year and so I actually saved $10 if I ignore the future value of money.
So, I got to see many people including getting to have a chat with Elf, Omaha, and Raeney. I chatted with krow and I got to spend time with byrdie and klicrai. It was amusing to be walking with klicrai and be stopped frequently by all the people that she knew. I don't know if anything will come of it but I enjoyed my chat with a fellow about Mage, playing it as well as it's past and future.

I made two nifty purchases.
The first was a nice fingertip sensation toy: top thumbnail of fingertip toy side thumbnail of fingertip toy
I saw someone with a Nekobus and I asked him if he had purchased it at the con. He had and so I was able to pick up a plush Nekobus: front thumbnail of nekobus side thumbnail of nekobus
I wasn't quite used to having a camera available and so I didn't take very many pictures of the costumes. The three that I did get were nice though:
These kitties were selling skin airbrushing. I was impressed - the paint didn't rub off and it still felt nice.

I had to do a doubletake to make sure this wasn't Lucy Lawless when I saw her down the hallway about 20 meters.

Finally, this thumbnail speaks for itself:

This was definitely a fun time. Unfortunately, I had meant to volunteer during the con and I never got around to doing so. I guess I have a small excuse in that I was only there for 10 hours. I made up for it some by taking an emergency shift on the door at the 'Spot that night. I probably still would've worked the door anyway but it does assuage my conscience some.
