I spent the weekend at MarsCon 2011, a local science fiction convention in Bloomington, MN. It's a smaller convention, with somewhere around 400-500 attendees, so it's quite a bit smaller than CONvergence. MarsCon has a good costuming program track, though, run by Rae Lundquist, a master costumer here in the Twin Cities.

I suited up as the Predator and appeared in their masquerade on Saturday evening. I decided to show it off in the exhibition category, instead of entering it in the competition, since I had already won Best In Show at a local convention with the same suit. Here's a video taken by my friend Todd. I think he took it with his iPhone, but it's nice clear HD video. I'm also showing off my new halberd/flechette launcher pole weapon here. The ballroom wasn't all that big and it didn't have an exceptionally high ceiling, so I had to be careful while switching from the halberd end to the pointy end, or else I would have turned the light fixture into a trophy.

And, speaking of trophies, these attractive ladies wanted a photo with me, so I obliged:

Even my black dragon helm on Friday evening got me some lovin':

Elkman,

Lookin' good as usual. You're still my hero! As for the ladies - did you happen to get their phone numbers by chance? Just kidding.

Take care,
