I realized a few days ago as I was attending Dragon Con for my 8th year (I missed a few) that it has been 10 years since my first introduction to the convention world. 10 years of cons. That’s alot of funky colored carpet under my feet. It has been an almost rock star level experience at times and a soul crushing pit of sadness at others. A con is a microcosm of human emotion, dreams, hopes, friends, enemies, fans and icons, art and beauty, passion, love, sexuality, & creativity. Rich, poor, and all in between from every walk of life, congregating peacefully (mostly) under their own free will. Unlike any other place you’ll find on earth, it is a community with its own rules. An inside secret among the adult social experience. In the next few months I am going to start a series of digital tales called “10 Years of Cons”. I’m going to go back and start at the beginning and highlight some of our most interesting convention experiences. And there are so many to choose from.
A new project fromGirls Of The Con. “10 Years of Cons” will start with our first convention 10 years ago and document to the best of my memory and my photo bank can recall, the experience of this road we’ve been on. I think it may be enlightening and entertaining and even heartbreaking at times. Not going to pull any punches. Some names will be changed to protect the innocent and the not so innocent alike. 🙂
