Done and done. It really seems like a blur on how fast Wondercon 2010 has come and gone. From shootin some pool at Jillian's to stomping thru the tail-end of Wondercon, then refuelin at Eddie Rickenbackers and making our glorious last stand at Eve.
For us this themed barcrawl just seemed like a natural connection, let's face it-- Stormtroopers are like the Cops-spoof that is Reno 911. With the hordes of crazed costumes taking over SF this weekend, why not join in on all the madness?!
Thankfully we had a nice, cool day with no rain which helped to keep many of us from sweating buckets but yes, that is what the beer is for baby!
With the culture of most cons and costumed heads- there is really no shame in asking for pics, chopping it up with strangers and just finding yourself utterly immersed in the dripping geekiness of it all.
As you can imagine-- many new friends were made, hundreds of pictures were taken and yes-- a whole lot of drinky was consumed.
As much shit I get from some of my non-dork pals...I have a feeling more of them will be going all out next year rather than just throwing on the mere Clonetrooper buckets (*calling out Euge, Alan, Jas and Angelo).
When the sun went down and the party crowds started coming out, things only escalated. Whether it was that crazy dancing pirate kid, the old-school B-Boy footage shot over the projection, the tasty beats- oh and its been awhile since perfect strangers are comping ur drinks (well unless you are in the Castro-hahaha).
Out of the many hilarious, wild, geeky-crazed moments-- I gotta give it up to my friend-- Dark Sith Cupcake for letting me take part in her newfound internet celeb status with umm...this once in a galaxy, far, far away moment:
Major domo thanks to all the Yelpers, Gene of Orangephotography, Indysole, & Wondercon for all the fantabulous fun and the super-staff at Jillian's, Eddie Rickenbackers and Eve that let us blast our way through SOMA on a barcrawl that we can't wait to follow-up on next year...and now for some much needed rest..
oh and more pics&chatter here.
