Exhibit Shuffle

This afternoon, when I came to examine the Exhibit room (Emerald A) before my 4 PM panel, I found that the NASA display as set up obscured a bunch of the photos on the wall of my exhibit. After the 4 PM panel on "Fandom in Fifty Minutes" (advice for first-time con attendees), I went back to the exhibit and was told that the group next to my exhibit area hadn't shown up at all, so I could move over, so I did; however, this did mean having to pick up every single item in the exhibit and move it over a few feet to the left, because it's arranged chronologically. That took about an hour or so, but has the beneficial effect that now none of the pictures are posted on the wall from which they were falling off because the fuzzy surface doesn't take tape at all.

Then I decided that there was enough room to think about trying to set up one of Ed & Lori Steiner's (Science Fiction Museum of Oregon) department store mannequins to display my costume. Lori helped me with this. We worked out that we could tape the mannequin (which was missing the vertical pole and platform that would ordinarily hold it up) to the back of an ordinary chair, then put the costume on that. So I trotted back over to my hotel room and retrieved the costume. After a bit of fiddling around, we got the costume on the mannequin, but because I'm a big guy (and was even 70 pounds lighter when this costume was made) it doesn't fit very well on the mannequin, and we had to tape it into place. But because I doubt anyone who sees the costume would believe I was in it if they didn't see it, I included pictures as well.

I hope this is the last time I have to muck about with the exhibit until I take it apart on Monday.
