As usual, SheVaCon is the start of con season for us. We had to miss
last year due to work, but this year we were back in style and packing
heat! Drew, Anthony and I hopped in the SpatMobile and headed to Roanoke
where I was set to be a Guest of Honor, and the MASTER of Ceremonies!!
things first, time for Waffle House!! People forget that us Northerners
don't have Waffle House's, Sonic's and all that other awesomely strange
Coffee House? Is that like the White Supremacists Coffee? What sizes
do they come in? Initiate, Acolyte, Grand Dragon? Needless to say, we
don't have Sheetz in NY, so we found the Coffee chain to be very amusing,
and it gave us hours of jokes!
at the con at like 2am, got some sleep, then headed out to do some shopping.
We wanted to go hit a gun range, and were told about one range up in
the Mountains. About halfway there, we were all thinking we had made
a mistake, as it was so far away that we worried about getting back
to the con in time for dinner. The place we found was a State Run, UNSUPERVISED
Gun Range. Basically, it was a shooting area carved into the side of
the mountain and you can go and shoot for free. We (of course) dropped
cash in the Donations jar.
only downside was that there was no place to buy targets! And we didn't
think to bring our own, so we had to root through the garbage for things
that other people shot at!
taking out what was left of a stuffed animal we found.

back to the hotel for dinner and then the SheVaCon preview party!!
badge! It's become a SheVaCon tradition that me and my crew all get
custom made badges for the shows! This year mine has me as Bender in
a smoking jacket. Notice the mustache on Bender! Also notice the awesome
Marilyn Zombie art by Matt Busch!

Parties are such social events.
first MASTER of Ceremonies duty, I was to MC the Virginia Hey panel!
Virginia is best known as the Female Warrior from The Road Warrior and
Zhaan from Farscape. Here's a pic of her mooning me. She's very classy.
shopping the Dealer's Room for things to throw at Rich's nuts. Long
it was time to set up for the Zombie Face Off Challenge! This is a panel
where a bunch of people compete to make a Zombie in a half an hour!
