ConnectiCon logo

The final bit of walking around footage, with some more cool costumes and people having fun. I always try to get at least one of the nighttime gatherings, usually Saturday. Enjoy.

There will be more videos starting next week; press junkets, panels, and that one I’ve been teasing, which I hope to have for next Saturday. Until then I hope everyone who went to ConnectiCon had a good time, and if you didn’t get to go I hope you do next year.

    Those Lego Dr. Who items were pretty cool. Here’s a couple of questions I have after watching the three videos:

    1) In the video game area of the convention, were there Nintendo and Atari 2600 game systems that were hooked up? I ask because some people looked to be playing video games on “old school” style television sets.

    2) I saw many people in costume who were walking around with fake weapons: toy guns, toy swords, etc. I’m surprised that was allowed at the convention in this day and age. Were there any problems or issues that arose due to some costumed people carrying fake weapons? How did security staff there handle this?

    • 1) There was an old school style game but as far as I could tell everything was either new, Japanese, or both.

      2) There are specific rules when it comes to prop weapons that have to be followed. They’re posted on the website and there is a check-in to insure the weapons match the rules. I don’t think the sword dealers (who had prop weapons, replica weapons, and even wooden swords) was there this year, though, but I didn’t get to really explore the dealer room this year.

    At least there is a security verification at check in on the prop weapons. I will say though that in all the convention footage I saw in your video clips, the sight of fake weapons was the only thing I found unsettling (that and also possibly the person in the Ted costume with his antics on film).
