I'm reporting from Seatac airport now. I just reluctantly handed in the keys to the pretty red Dodge Challenger to the Alamo people, and am waiting for my flight back to Denver.
BrickCon was super aewsionme! It was so great seeing everyone again, we'll definitely be back next year (this time I won't forget my MOCs I promise).
The highlights, it all started with a great barbecue at Josh's place, followed by picking Beckie up from the airport before pulling up to the convention hall in a red Challenger packed with AFOL and LEGO.
Buildup day started a bit slow for me, because I, embarrasingly but hilariously, forgot all my MOCs (yeah, you know when you drive up to an airport you always have that feeling you're forgetting something). So I just went around and helped whoever needed an extra set of hands.
As more and more familiar faces started to come in, it just got busier and busier for me, catching up with everyone. Lunch was had at the Center House pretty much each day, where we all got to talk to Dan (Robin Hood)'s friend again (photos of this will
Public hours were deliciously busy with a line as long as 4 blocks of just people waiting to get in. It's so great hearing all those reactions from the audience and talking to all these super enthusiastic kids and parents and general LEGO enthusiasts alike.
I was (only partly proudly) quickly dubbed the Queen of BrickCon after Bruce's partially executed idea from last year to have me show up in drag (I only went as far as wearing Caylin's tiara though, her pink boa was in storage).
The sad part was of course sunday evening. Saying goodbye to people I probably won't see for about another year (you guys need to come to some European cons at some point to change that!)
Apart from MOC photos I also took a lot of people photos, but with 900 photos altogether, you guys will have to wait until my brain wakes up so I can go through them all and separate the good photos from the blurries and duplicates.
(by the way, it was People's Choice that went to Port Brickton, and Best in Show that went to Hetherington's Mardi Gras)
