The Vern visits ConVergence 2012.




I apologize for the lateness in posts, but I have been busy these last few days.  My last job let me go and then my unemployment payments were put on hiatus.  While that was going on I was constantly filling out job applications and still writing up articles for the site and The LAMB as well.   I am happy to announce that the job search is over and  I do have a new job that starts on Wednesday.  What's even more cool is that I got a call about another interview later this week for a job that may even pay more then the one I took.


A few weeks ago I went to ConVergence which is Minnesota's own version of ComicCon.  It's a very low key event compared to the one that happens in San Diego but is still a lot of fun.  Our own Ninja editor Mary was part of a panel called "The Gluten Free Geek" where she and others discussed healthy alternatives to popular foods. My good friends at  Fuzzy Machete put on an amazing show Friday afternoon and were by far the best rock show that entire weekend.  There was a lot of fun panels I took part in, including one about film scores and one that featured feminism in Quentin Tarantino movies.   The rest of the weekend was spent doing a lot of drinking, sleeping for a few hours and then doing it all over again.   It was a great time that I hope to do again soon.




Here are pictures of some great costumes at the event.









            Sexy girls wearing "Star Trek" outfits is hot no matter if your a fan of the show or not.










                                 Baloo from "Tail Spin"





                                 A younger Dr. Horrible.














  I recognized the girl as being Psylocke from "X-Men", but could not tell you who the guy was. 











     Great outfits of ladies in "Star Wars" gear.  I find blue skin woman to be kind of hot,wish there were more of them.










                         The Repo Man from "Repo:The Genetic Opera".












                    The Doctor and his Tardis.








                 No idea of where these costumes originate from but they do look hot.
















     I think the bottom pic is from the new "My Little Pony" T.V. show, but I have no clue on what the top picture is from.












This outfit was great because she even had the same voice as Cruella DeVille from the animated movie "101 Dalmatians".












  This gets high points for being the most original.  It's a glossy live pop art of a soap opera comics they used to publish in the late sixties.  They told me who the actual artist was but I forgot.
