All of the costumes and hats were so cool! We all had tea and snacks along with some great giveaways. I actually won a fantastic tote bag full of goodies for my costume. This was the first time dressing up in steampunk and it was so fun! I can feel an addiction growing.
I was lucky enough to get a ticket for Erin McCarthy's field trip where we took a walk around New Orleans. Seen some awesome architecture, amazing cemeteries and Erin told some history behind some of the buildings. The metal work you see everywhere is gorgeous! Especially when the plants hang over.
I've always had a thing for Cemeteries, and the ones in New Orleans are F'in awesome! I ended up falling behind in the tour because I was totally in my element taking photos.
On Friday Night we had the Masquerade Ball which was a blast! That is me in the red wig dancing it up with Voodoo Charlie, one of the tattoo artist, and my cousin! We had sooo much fun and drank way too much! lol
Last but definitely not least the fab hotel we all stayed at The Royal Sonesta Hotel. Beautiful hotel and the staff were all so nice! Actually got to talk to some of them during my tattoo session and they had some pretty good stories about other event that had taken place there like the swingers convention. Needless to say I felt sorry for the people that had to clean the hotel after that...gross!
Trying to post an overview of this con is difficult because so much happened, all in all I had an amazing time and I'm very excited for 2013 which will be in Savannah! To see all photos I have taken you can find them all HERE and even more over at Authors After Dark's FACEBOOK PAGE
Huge thanks to all that made this Con an event I will never forget!
Registration for 2013 will open soon and I will let you all know!
