It is likely that most every motel within twenty the Indianapolis area had gamers arriving last night. Many of the folks in line to check into the Indianapolis Northwest Days Inn had official Gen Con badges already and others were excited waiting to get theirs for Gen Con 2013.
Shawn LeGrand and Eric Federonich left their jobs and families in Dubuque, Iowa for the next for days of awesome gaming. Check out the Gen Con eve interview.
While the gaming goes on around the clock at Gen Con there are many other great things happening including great opportunities to cosplay, a zombie walk Friday at 8 p.m., and the film festival.
The Costume Parade is Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. with the 28th annual Costume Contest following from 4 to 6 p.m.
9 p.m. looks to be a great time to catch a movie this weekend with the award winning indie science fiction film, “Found In Time” on Friday, “Death In Charge” on Saturday, both at 9 p.m. Tonight at 9 p.m. is the world premiere of the new indie film “O.G. Original Gamester.”
Of course the beautiful but bawdy Damsels of Dorkington return to tickle your funny bone and many other great entertainers will keep you entertained between games. More on that later!
More about John Collins
Saturday morning December 1st 2012 Santa and his sleigh arrived at the Branns Restaurant on South Division.
There were Cub Scouts in their troop, trooping down the street…
There were lovely young dancers, dancing to the beat…
The Godwin Marching Band needed no applause as down division they preceded Mr. Claus…
At the end of the Santa Claus Parade, the children had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Santa while their parents flashed pictures.
It was a delightful event by the Wyoming-Kentwood area Chamber of Commerce!
Meanwhile in another part of town…
The Grand Rapids Toy and Comic Expo had games, toys, and comics galore for the patrons, costumed or otherwise.
Scott Rosema, artist for Space Ghost, Tiny Toons, Batman, and more was on hand to do sketches and sign copies of his work.
The Killustration Studios Crew were also at the ready with pen in hand and a ready smile.
As one would expect at a toy and comic expo, a hero came to confront the villainous viewer who was spying over the crowd in his spidery suit.
The comic character cosplayers confronted in the corner and as one would expect, an epic battle ensued.
Well, maybe not, but they were just cosplaying and the couple that cosplays together? Will probably have a lot of fun with their kids.
