Sunday, April 13th, at Alt*Con Tallahassee 2014

Alt*Con is our local science fiction convention. This was our first year attending, so I didn't know what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised by the large number of venders and the quality of the costumes worn by the attendees. It's a fairly small convention, but that meant there were no crowds to deal with and there were more opportunities to meet new people and have actual conversions.

As far as fandoms go, there was a little bit of everything:

How did the panel go?

It went pretty well. I was a little nervous at first, but I did fine. I really enjoyed talking to people about their individual questions when they came up to the table after the panel, better than the panel itself. My husband kept telling me afterwards that I had done a great job.
