Gary had to drive from LA to Austin with all of his equipment because of a setback with the airlines not allowing him to take over 100 lbs.

He finally gets there, and we did XIV while he was in the middle of it all at GDC on Thursday.

I finally got to showcase my costume creation. Kenzie cosplay, ftw. :D

Show was good - GDC looked boring with nothing there.

GDC = county fair
Every other gaming gathering = Six Flags

Is that about right?

I was very surprised to see Mr B being such a good boy. I was imagining someone to the side holding a gun to his head saying "smile".

good show!

I'm honestly thinking of doing a costume every 10 shows or something like that. It was super fun!

It'd be tough to do a Lalafell, but maybe fun to try? And next time, I'll make my outfit longer so I can actually stand up! lol.

What jobs do you guys think I should costumize? (Is that a word?....it is now....)

I like the idea and /bow to you because making these must be alot of work and...take up alot of inventory space ^^

I don't know. How about Botanist or Pugilist?

A pugilist would be hard. My sewing skills are not that awesome. LOL

To be honest, this costume was held together by a lot of safety pins.

Do you have an example of the Botanist outfit you were thinking of? Hit me!

GDC is a conference...

a meeting for consultation, exchange of information, or discussion, esp one with a formal agenda

The intended audience of GDC is members of the game industry and those trying to break in, not fans. Although San Francisco GDC has become a rather large press event as well, it's really not a fan event. Cosplay is not commonly seen at all, again it is not for fans.

In my past trips to GDC it's always frustrating to see fans get up at the end of a keynote and ask some asinine question about why "such and such is so difficult" or "Why didn't you do such and such an obvious thing." You're making the entire room facepalm, and you don't belong there. It surprises me that it has yet to result in a more stringent screening process for full access passes - which in the end is going to just hurt students and recent graduates who are looking to break in.

GDC is again - a conference, a place for people in the industry to gather, socialize, network and award one another's accomplishments not an expo like E3 or PAX, why are you attempting to compare the two?
