ConTemporal is a steampunk convention in central North Carolina. This was it’s second year, so it’s a modestly-sized event. However it’s pretty dense with cool costumes, performances, and interesting vendors. The atmosphere is social and relaxed, which I really dug. I haven’t experienced much in the Steampunk community, but it makes sense that steampunk fans are pretty intellectual, creative, and able to present themselves formally – as that’s all part of the genre. I hope to make it to ConTemporal … Read the rest
Micah here. I had a wonderful time at Animazement, Raleigh NC’s own anime convention. To be honest I wasn’t sure about going, because despite having awesome attendees, AZ has fairly strict policies when it comes to film and video – which is what we enjoy doing.

A few of my friends were headed up to Katsucon (an anime / media convention near Washington DC) so Brian (Toad) and I decided to check it out. I’m glad we did, because it’s a pretty fun con!

We recently tested some Foxfury lights on a film project and as thanks, FoxFury invited us to check out the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. We were a bit nervous. This was the real deal. Real steel.

Greensboro, NC has 3 big bar crawls during the year – PirateCon, BunnyCon, and SantaCon. We heard about these wild nights and finally got a chance to check one out. Ghost went as Tactical Santa. Snake lost a bet and had to wear a girl’s Santa shirt from Walmart. But Santa gave Snake his one wish list item – a new box!
