MarsCon 2007, Day 1

March 3rd, 2007 | by Sqotty |

MarsCon 2007 is off to a good start with lots of good panels guests and parties! After missing the first panels on Friday and Opening Ceremonies due to a luggage mishap, it was full party mode on the first evening of the con.

The IKV Rakehell has put on a great party room, with the theme “How much for just the planetoid,” poking fun at Pluto’s recent downgrade from planet status. The room was decorated with various planets, comets, asteroids and a variety of space images. Dinks included the staple “Hot Sex With A Klingon” and several new themed drinks including “Dissolving Planetoid” and “Asteroid Belt” (sometimes also called “Surf’s Up At Alderan”). Admiral Qob supplied most of the music, with some supplemental tunes from Sqotty’s collection. Munchies were also planetary themed and included “Fruit Ringworlds.”

The Klingons of the Rakehell were to be found everywhere, lurking in every corner of the party floor, with the Rakehll being the most poplar party, followed closely by the Tardis Tea Society (they had a very nice selection of ports that they were serving).

Guests at the Con include SF writer Walter Hunt, author of the Dark Wing series, and Patrica Tallman of Babylon 5.

Saturday will be a busy panel day, with some of the Rakehell’s own participating on several costuming and makeup panels, including Patrick on mask making and Qob with the Elizabeth I makeup presentation.

More later.

    My wife and I met you at the con. We were the fanatics about the history of the Old West; planning on retiring in Deadwood due to the history and lower taxes. The con was a great time, planning on being there next year, and we generally loved the guest. Just wish Patricia Tallman hadn’t launched all the praise for Keith Ellison. Since she is apparently from Los Angeles I forgave her from the understanding that she was probably hopelessly brainwashed.

    MarsCon was as fun as ever, though as always the panel portion was somewhat unfocused. Still, hanging out with you and your family was a terrific part of my MarsCon 2007 experience.

    Rock on, K’phlegm, whatever 🙂

    Walter.
