Stargate Pyramid

(no subject)

Another neat thing about AggieCon this year was the number of hall costumes. There was a Zombie theme, and a few people came with great Zombie outfits. One of the artists was also doing Zombie face painting Saturday night, so that was very neat. A few people had steampunk outfits with goggles and gadgets, and Saturday night there was also a workshop on SF/F fashion and a workshop for decorating tiny little hats. So by later that night, everybody was stylin'.
