MISSION REPORT: Norwescon 2009
The theme for this year's Norwescon Sci-Fi & Fantasy Convention was The Things that Time Forgot. I always wonder how they come up with the so-called 'theme', as it looked the same this year as last! lol! There was definitely a huge showing of Steampunk this year, more than last year, so I guess that is a nod to the theme. (If you don't know about Steampunk, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk)
I suppose I could talk about the many folks in every imaginable costume, or the plethora of panels (workshops) there were...or I could talk about the masquerade of costumes on stage, or the intense previews of upcoming sci-fi/fantasy movies coming soon. I might describe endlessly all the wonderful Star Wars fanatics I got to hang out with and the famous 501st Legion, but I think I'll just let the pictures tell the story.
If you haven't been to a 'con', you just don't know what you are missing!
