Con Over, Man
One last costume shot added to my BayCon Flikr set
:( Set phasers on shortCollapse )( Feedback Session PhotosCollapse )
I mentioned in an earlier post that one thing they can't change is the small hotel rooms. There were oddities in the room design as well, including a style of bathroom sink I don't think I've ever seen before.( Odd fixture designCollapse )
As before, there are more photos than what I show on my LJ on the Flickr set.
After running out of quarters in the game room, I wandered over to the bar and sat and talked with kproche
, Tadao Tomomatsu, and Christine Doyle. After realized that I really needed to get fed, I headed over to the Coco's for the regular Monday BASFA meeting, where the topic of the night was both BayCon and FanimeCon. There were a bit over 2000 people attending BayCon and reportedly more than 17,000 at FanimeCon, but both could be considered successful events within their own spheres -- size isn't the only measure of success of a genre convention, after all.
After BASFA, I stopped back by the hotel because it wasn't too far out of the way. I got there just as the Dead Dog Party was opening, but it was, as traditional, Staff Only for what was described as "fifteen minutes." I went and sat in the lobby and discussed conventions with Tom Galloway and Kevin and Andy for more than half an hour. When the Dead Dog Party -- which was being held in the former gaming room -- showed no signs of opening, I decided that, it being after 10:30 PM, it was time to go home, and so I did.
