Good morning all!Does anyone follow these two shows? This season, we'll see more African Americans on The Walking Dead, and Angela Bassett will be a major star on American Horror Story: Coven. I'd…Continue
How are you? Sorry I have been out of touch with the cosplay group. My father had been ill for several months and passed away early May.
Absolutely! We should meet up! I plan to arrive Thursday and stay through Tuesday at the Hilton. Am I remembering correctly that you will arrive on Friday? I think I can send you a private message through this site. I will send you my number so we can text a time and place.
How's your costuming going? What are you working on for the con?
I think you are right about the cosplaying, I have had some really funny moments and good times wearing my costumes.
Good Luck with getting a room at the Marriott. That is always the most difficult part of the con to me is getting the hotel reservation. Every year the reservation process gets crazier and crazier. The night time stuff is why I like staying in a host hotel. I like the parties, karoke and films.
As far as costumes for next year. I want to do a Star Trek next generation uniform. But what I really have my heart set on (but I have figure it out) is Nova from Star Blazers. I used to watch that show as a kid. I will try to attach a picture. If the picture shows up, Nova is the one in the yellow. Also, I want to rework my Romana costume from Dr. Who. I need to work on the dress, maybe even get a new one.
As far as seeing other costumes at the con, I would love to see more Star Blazers costumes. And I would love to see someone dress as the diva from fifth element. There was a guy dressed as ruby rhod this time and he looked great. I will try to add that too. If it shows, that's me in my star trek uniform.
Have you joined the official dragon facebook page? There is good information on that page regarding hotels and guest updates and so forth.
Yes, I plan to attend in 2014. I have bought my membership and have a hotel reservation. I look forward to it every year.
I hope you let me know if you had specific changes in mind. I have noticed some. Of course, the main one is the size. When I first attended in 2005 it was about 20,000 people now it's at 52,000 or 58,000 depending where you look.
For the first time this year, it seems there were fewer costumes. I don't know why or what reason. I have noticed over the years more blacks and other minorities attending. But the number always seems small to me given that the South and Atlanta have so many black people. I went to Momcon (anime) this year in Atlanta and there were way more black people at that con. I have also noticed more black people wearing costumes.
What did it seem like to you? Were you expecting certain things and did or did not see them?
I am already thinking about costumes for next year. :)

A group of researchers recently observed a mysterious infrared emission coming from near a pulsar in NASA's Hubble Space telescope data. This animation depicts one possible source of the emission: a "fallback disk" or a disk that formed from materials of the parent star falling back into the neutron star after a supernova.

During the heady days of the Black Cultural revolution in Chicago, there was a lot of art dealing with this hope and concept. The mainstream galleries, Black art curators, historians and critics mostly stayed away from it. Then once certain major players in this died in came the White parasites. One a college professor the other a Jewish art dealer. Both swooped in making deals to sell works, with the other building a entire career path for herself. Now they are the accepted go-to authorities of this movement. That they treat as a dead slave on their plantations. "The Black Art Movement" now produces no revenue or power for the people it were supposed to benefit.
And all of this happened due to the "Black on Black boycott" that allowed non-Blacks to walk in a take it to the bank. WHen Black do not support and endorse its own positives others come in later to reap its resources, power & wealth.

A new uncertainty principle holds that quantum objects can be at two temperatures at once, which is similar to the famous Schrödinger's cat thought experiment, in which a cat in a box with a radioactive element can be both alive and dead. Credit: Shutterstock
When the researchers turn an external magnetic field in different directions (indicated with arrows), they change the orientation of the linear electron flow above the kagome (six-fold) magnet, as seen in these electron wave interference patterns on the surface of a topological quantum kagome magnet. Each pattern is created by a particular direction of the external magnetic field applied on the sample.

Republicans: Founded in 1854 by anti-slavery expansion activists and modernizers, the Republican Party quickly surpassed the Whig Party as the principal opposition to the Democratic Party. In 1860, it came to power with the election of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency. The party presided over the American Civil War and Reconstruction and was harried by internal factions and scandals toward the end of the 19th century. Today, the party supports a conservative platform (from an American political perspective), with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies,…

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
