We have talked about going to Convergence for a while. It is a big gathering of geeky geeks, who do geeky stuff together in a big 3 hotel ring. Thousands of people go through it, free alcohol, panels with famous people, games, anime… what more could you ask for?!
We got permission from Nurse l33T Joy that we could attend, since it was so close to Derrian’s surgery, and got the go ahead!
We both dressed up even! CKnight at a Division Agent, complete with color changing beacon, and Derrian as Louise from Bob’s Burgers.
The panels were probably the most interesting aspect. With the theme of “How do we get there”. Traveling of any sort was the discussion. Favorite Star Wars vehicles, to time travel, to a whole table of drinking Submarine Navy men who answered any (we mean ANY) question asked of them.
Of course there was the big costume show on the big stage for awards and some shopping. CKnight picked up a Gamera dvd for $2! Talk about a oldie, but a goodie!
We did the photo booth! But unfortunately we have never seen photos from our photographer 🙁 We’ll try to dig up something that we might have taken somewhere else. This pic is of Derrian as Louise, that was taken between panels. She got yelled at from down the long hallway to take a ‘Bob’s Burger crew family photo’ lol
