Here's a list of the 5 funnest things about cons,not in any particular order.
1. Cosplay. Con people take their characters and costumes very seriously, and there are always some fantastic displays. Most Cosplayers make the costumes themselves.

|My husband's the one not in costume, but I still think he's pretty cute.|
2. Entertainment. Danny Birt, the Blibbering Humdingers, and Mikey Mason were all there singing geeky songs.
This isn't live at Marscon, but it's one of my favorite Mikey Mason's songs.
And there's one from Danny Birt.
They're even better in concert where you have the energy of the crowd.
3. Other Geeks. You're around others even geekier than you are. It's coming home to your people.
|Geeks, including my husband, at the Doctor Who Tea Party.|
