Another Masquerade

I'm definitely going to CONvergence, the weekend of July 4. I'm going to enter the TRON costume in the masquerade there, as well. I spent an hour and a half or so on the phone with the Masquerade chair, discussing all sorts of things.

I'm kinda nervous about this one. This will be my first full-bore SF con, for starters, and while it's going to be enjoyable for me, I'm not sure how well Paul will do - since there will be a couple of thousand people there. More so, though, is the fact that, when it's all said and done, the TRON costume is my first effort, and it shows - and there will be some serious competition there, from folks who have been doing this kind of thing for decades. I'll be competing as a journeyman, which means I'll get lumped in with folks who actually know what they're doing. As a result, I'm not expecting to take anything home. That's fine, because, after all, I'm doing it for fun, as well as to see just how it really does stack up. There's still this little intimidation factor at work, but I'm not going to let it get in the way.
