Pax East

We made a trip to PAX East this past weekend.  The show was attended by close to 70,000 geeks, including us.  Below are some of the highlights of the show, including our costumes.  I, Rob, went as a mage.  Jaimi was the amazing Samus Aran of Metroid fame.

 One of the first panels we went to was the Blamamations! with Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub.  These guys are both talented artists and incredibly funny.  Before the panel began, Scott had a line going to trade pokemons.  Kris felt left out, so we formed a line to give him stuff.
 So, I did a card trick for him.  He was impressed.

This was a giant inflatable pikachu in the expo hall.

After we costumed up, we took some shots at the hotel.  This one is called "Chargin mah fireball"
And this is the last thing a metroid sees.

We later met up with Scott Kurtz at his table.  Jaimi was able to coerce him into signing her shoulder pad.

Jaimi was unofficially adopted by the Metroid Metal guys.

Poor sheep.  Luckily, we found the bloodthirsty Samus a burger.

She's just a the world.  That's all that you'll let her be.

We made some new friends: Mike, Mike, and Colin.  I turned one of the Mikes into a sheep....and then laughed at him...then Colin did something Scottish to said sheep. 
DOODLE BUG!  Or whatever it's called from Bioshock Infinite.

That's it for now.  More photos will be rolling in, along with a "making of" post.
