This forum is for sharing the photographs I take of Conner, Zach, Anita, me and other family members, or any other things I take pictures of, I suppose.

2005-08-20 - GenCon Trip (15 pics)

Postby brad on Wed Sep 14, 2005 12:12 pm

These pictures were taken the weekend that we went to GenCon. Four of us drove up to the convention (David DeHart, Brian King, Jayson Harvey, and me). We had a great time! It was a very cool convention and though there was tons and tons and tons of stuff to see and do, I didn't take pictures of hardly anything. It got old toting the camera around and I was too distracted to remember to ever take pictures.

Anyway, here are some of the few pictures I did take.


Image
Some people even put their cars into costume!

Image
This is what it looked like from where I walked in the front door of the exhibition hall. It's not a very good panaroma, because I didn't have overlapping sections, but it should give you an idea.

Image
Some crazy charity event where they were allowing anyone to come in and stack cards and then on Sunday of the conference you could bring in coins to throw at the card structures and the coins went to charity.

Image
Another of the card stacking thing

Image
We saw many Star Wars costumes... here a bounty hunter and storm trooper unite

Image
An entire room full of nothing but role playing games being played. This was the RPGA (Role Playing Game Association) official gaming room (by room, I mean giant conference center hall room)

Image
We saw some other *cough* interesting *cough* costumes too...

Image
...she used duck tape to hold her top on.. and the skirt is bubble wrap...most interesting indeed...Hey, at least she recycles!

Image
Blizzard brought one of their Night Elves with them.


Image
Wizards of the Coast was doing a huge promotion for their new Axis and Allies miniatures game. Yes, this is a real tank.. in the exhibit hall, and yes, it was one of TWO tanks, and only one of the FIVE vehicles they brought in for display in their "booth".

...and don't ask me what Jayson is doing.. I'm still not sure. I just took the picture


Image
Finally got someone to take a picture of all of us together.


Image
Indianapolis has all these weird people statues downtown. Very "artsy" ... I guess.

It was hot, .......and bright.

Image
Here, we vetoed smiling for the camera.


Image
This was a cool statue right downtown in Indi.

Image
Here's a close-up of the base of the statue with more of those weird people statues
