AER: WillyCon 13; April 1-3, 2011-Wayne, NE

Three members of the ship's crew attended and participated in WillyCon 13 in Wayne, NE. In attendance was Lt. Akela tai-K'Tor, 2nd Lt. Kalesta tai-K'Tor, and 2nd Lt. Jorn tai-(house pending).

With a Star Wars theme, the 501st Imperial Stormtroopers decided to host a costume panel. To get around the idea of two costuming panels, we hosted a panel on "Deconstructing a Klingon Costume", which broke down the Klingon Costume into its various parts and pieces. We also showed the audience how such a concept can also be applied to any sci-fi/Anime/Fantasy costume. By breaking down a costume down to its various components (pants, tunic, gauntlets, spine armor, etc.), a person could work on the costume one piece at a time. Several members of the audience expressed a desire to attempt a Sci-fi related costume project for a future area convention.

The convention was chocked full of great panels ranging from gaming to Doctor Who and Torchwood, to Star Wars and Anime. Kalesta found the ball-jointed dolls interesting, Jorn played auctioneer for the Art Auction, and I attended some of the Sci-fi/Fantasy and writing panels.

In all, it was a fun weekend that was enjoyed by those who attended.

Hailing Frequencies are always open.
