Norwescon 38

I’ve been delayed getting this posted.  I have a mild case of “con-crud”.  I have a bit of a head cold so I lack motivation.

Over Easter weekend, I attended Norwescon 38.  I’ve gone to this local Science Fiction convention for several years. Lately my friend, Regina, comes up from Portland to go with me.  Himself isn’t interested.    This year George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) was the Author Guest of Honor.  That brought many more people to the Con.

The pre-reg line was out into the parking lot!  But once Registration opened, the line moved fast.  My time at the counter was about 30 seconds.  Best registration experience ever!

I didn’t do much in the way of costuming.  I just wore “unusual clothes”.  I did a limited Steampunk costume on Saturday.  We left early Sunday as Regina wasn’t feeling well, though she did not catch my cold (yet).

There was only one costumed figure drawing session this year.  I managed to get a couple sketches.  But the longer poses were not good from my point of view.  I was more interested in drawing Robin in his armor.

Here is the only other sketch I made.  It’s from Thursday, done while we were waiting for Con registration and to check into the hotel.

There were a lot of costumes…. many were versions of Medieval-ish that would be consistent with Game of Thrones.  They had a replica, cast, throne for people to be photographed in.  I got my friend, Regina, in it.  As the former ruler of all of Europe (Princess of Drachenwald), and the former Baroness of Knight’s Crossing, she’s had a lot of experience with thrones! (That’s SCA jargon).

I also ran into Loz, one of our regular AFK Drink and Draw models:
