|07:54 pm - Arisia!|
Arisia, our local SF con, was held last weekend, and once again I entered the Masquerade. Last year I won Best in Show, so I figured I had to enter something! ;) I brought back Dr. Von Fishbottle, the steampunk mad scientist whose inventions go awry; this year she had her own personal dirigible! Check out the photos in this set (linked to first of several photos):
The name of the presentation was "Another Victory for Science." I haven't found video of the skit yet, but I'm hopeful one will turn up. The skit involved me walking out on stage while a recorded narration describes my incredible Personal Airship Apparatus, which is totally safe. In the meantime I've actually gone out of control, am weaving all over the stage, and end up going offstage with a crashing sound. :)
I got a workmanship award for the prop, and Best In Class - Journeyman for the whole thing! :D Yay! One more win at that level and I get kicked upstairs to Craftsman level, though.
