This image is one I took of the lovely Duct Tape Pirate ladies at Dragon*Con 2007 Masquerade contest. As I grabbed this image, I noticed even Flickr was getting in on the fun!
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
We’ve never been the type of crowd that hangs out at the Boiler Room on a Saturday night. Tonight didn’t change that, even though we did spend this Saturday in the depths of hip-hop dancing, drinking, and masquerade festivities.

We have to… Continue reading Dragon*Con – Saturday
