Guess who has the coolest costume on the block? Balthazar does! His best (and only) Uncle-figure went all out and got together a suit of youth Storm Trooper gear for Balthazar this year. He’s been working on it for a while now and it’s finally finished. Sunday, he brought it over and we had an… Continue reading Smallest, and Newest Member of the Empire’s Finest
The main Halloween party we attended this year fell on the second Day of the Dead, November 2nd. As such, my wife had the fantastic idea to paint ourselves up as celebratory sugar skulls from the Mexican holiday. She went with the customary decoration of a beautiful sugar skull, complete with flowers and various stylistic… Continue reading Feliz Día de los Muertos!
Upon arrival at DragonCon Friday evening, I was met by a frantic Jeff at the Hyatt hotel. It would seem that the hotel doesn’t actually guarantee two beds in reserved rooms. A curious approach, as we had booked the room for quad occupancy. To make matters worse, the room presented to Jeff had a window… Continue reading Dragon*Con 2007 :: Wrap-Up
Wake-up, coffee, parade, lunch. The morning just flew by, but being a drummer in the parade was a blast! We all took a part in it; Fox dancing, Jeff as PeeWee Herman, and Amanda as Ms. Yvonne. I was able to work with the crowd more this year and give out some nods and smiles… Continue reading Costume Parade on Peachtree St.
It occurred to me half-way through this week that I hadn’t really said anything about DragonCon on my blog. Well, it’s that time again! The wife, and our surrogate siblings have been extremely busy – staying up into the wee-hours – to get things ready for the event. Whether it was finishing up other work… Continue reading DragonCon 2007
It’s now 2:30am Saturday morning and I’m finally getting home to get some sleep. Soon, anyway. I was with Jeff McClure working on a Ghostbusters Proton Pack replica. He got some new parts for it and had since lost the sound and light synchronization. I wasn’t sure what I was in for, but Jeff pulled… Continue reading Geeked Out at 1:00am
We’re doing the Harry Potter book release event for book 7 at “Bound to Read” in East Atlanta Village. It’s an exciting venue – it’s the last one as far as we know. We should have hit this market sooner – it’s a blast! The first one for us was in Gainesville at Chapter 13… Continue reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Spring hit northeast Georgia with a bang this year. The kind of bang where everything gets very uncomfortably hot just before a good week’s worth of freezing temperatures. Saturday morning, it was 31° F. Last week, I think we saw days in the mid-80’s. But comfort aside, the cooler weather will preserve the brightly colored,… Continue reading Easter Weekend
…And upon the third decade of life, such an elaborate scheme was laid upon the woolen eyes of their victim. Never before have I been so bewildered and pleased in the same breath. Here’s the skinny on one of the greatest sting operations of all times. Jeff calls me early in the month of February… Continue reading Birthday Cheers. Skål!
My wife’s wookie calendars are on sale through eBay just in time for the holidays (and the new year). I played the wookie, so I can recommend them for their charismatic character. If you’re a Star Wars fan (or a fan of 6′ 6″ red heads in wookie costumes), you should head over and buy… Continue reading Chewbacca 2007 Calendars for Sale
