it's time again for Big Apple Convention! A year ago I came to Big Apple
to ask about being a guest at a future show and ended up working at
the show. At the June show six months ago I was put in charge of the
1st and 2nd floor. And now, at the November National show, I was promoted
to Director of Operations for the whole con. Joy. Which basically means
that I was the "go to" guy for pretty much everything.
was pretty crazy and I didn't get a chance to take any pics. So here
are pics from dinner Friday night!
looking shocked at being put in charge.
Haven't seen him since DragonCon a few years back!
She's new to the group, but welcome addition!
Mayhew (Chewbacca from Star Wars) gets surprised by Frank, Niall and
Ruby in Wookie costumes! They shut down the entire Autograph area! Everyone
wanted a pic of them.
and his Wookies!
and his 2 different shoes. Looks like we woke him up too early this
showed up with his Zombies!!

Mai. Since I get to place all the celebs, I put her right next to the
Volunteer station, since that was where I was going to be spending most
of my time.
