Ikkicon and the Superbowl! February 5, 2007 Posted by Mookie
Let me just say that IKKICON was an absolute blast. I got to meet a lot of great new people and some of you wonderful readers, hang out with some old friends and make some new ones. That, combined with the amazing turnout this first-year convention received (even if it did result in a lot of cramped space), made this weekend a great one.

I want to say a special hello to my buddy Xero and the lovely Blair, both of whom I wished I could've spent more time with this weekend. I also want to say that while he's been at nearly every single convention I've ever attended, I'd never been officially introduced to Steve Bennett until Ikkicon. What a nice fella. And a final special thanks to Justin, Heather, Mina and Porkchops for being so helpful when I needed company, a table-guard and hugs.

And finally... pictures.
My first 2007 convention scandal! Belly signing!
Thanks to Amanda and Marysia for being such scandalously good sports.
Stunt and Bumper are back!
I think Stunt's still a little bitter about the split. Bumper seems happy, though.
My apologies to the Dominic cosplayer (whose name I have already shamefully forgot). I wish I'd remembered my camera on those days you were around.

And finally, on a Superbowly note, when I was a kid I liked two teams because I liked their helmets and they were perpetual underdogs... the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts. Now, years later, the Patriots have already won three Superbowls, and now the Colts have just won another one in my lifetime. My childhood feels a little more validated.

That's all from me for now!
Next stop... KATSUCON!
