So there’s some chatter going down about starting a Shatterdome Seattle, which is just about the best idea in the history of ever. I’m wondering how many people might be interested in attending a PacRim event in the greater Seattle area - if not a full blown con, then even just a meet up. To gauge the level of interest, I made a quick little survey - anyone interested?
Dooooooo iiiiiiitttt! :)
Music and Sound in Pacific Rim, a presentation at Shatterdome Atlanta by musicologist Andrew Granade!
The apocalypse has been well and truly canceled.
The Science Behind Pacific Rim by Stephen Granade, aka highenergyphysicist, at Shatterdome Atlanta!
But let’s not forget that Ferguson the miniature Kaiju brain had the time of his life at the con. (Dammit, now I know what I have to do- have cosplayers pose holding him. See how many people he can meet over a convention!) He’s been with me since his conception in July last year, and though his resin hadn’t set up in time for me to take him to Otakon, he had his first road trip convention experience at Dragon*con. Shatterdome was a great time for him. We partied crazy, he met Rob Kazinsky, mudora and I played some pranks on him at the bar, and then he relaxed in the hotel room with a vial of Kaiju Bone Powder courtesy of youfunninmeson!
Ferguson, take it easy, dude. You earned it!
Glad Ferguson had a good time despite being poked with forks and knives!
As I’ve said before, Pacific Rim will always hold a special place in my heart with my career as a graphic designer. It’s helped me forge friendships, kindle an appreciation for other branching mediums, and has helped my imagination and skill as a designer grow. Below’s a little blurb i wanted to write about this wonderful, tiny con in Atlanta, so prepare for a hell of a read.
So say we all! Wait… wrong fandom. ;) Thanks for your time and creative energy, explodinghye!
