Topaz is unimpressed by the Shertaon elevator. But just you wait!
Anime Boston's fancy triangular banner
This year I got a radio the whole time, with a secret service style earpiece! It was a lot of fun to listen in on tech operations throughout the con.
Topaz is the gaff tape wizard
He even has a precarious way of storing it
Hey it's Jamie! He sure has a fancy camera
Topaz doesn't get the 3DS
Read a book, read a book!

Rick! Master of panels at cons up and down the East coast
The escalator affords one a good opportunity to look around

Marian did an amazing job as Tech Chief of Staff, especially considering that she just had a kid!

She brought us to a pretty spiffy grill called Spike's

I'm not sure that's entirely accurate
Commander and her buddies, and Jefferson
Spike's was an excellent way to end Friday night
This guy's panel was pretty interesting. He was knowledgable enough to answer the industry questions that the industry won't actually answer
This guy took my picture, so I took his

I found myself standing next to this terrifying thing, desperately hoping to not disturb it and/or die
The view from the Masquerade side stage
Taking pictures of cosplayers? I can relate
I'm pretty sure this is Lindsay, the Masquerade Coordinator. In any case, this picture of her taking the stage is pretty awesome

Careful of the sprinklers!
It looks like security got roped in to packing up the trucks this year

Sean gathers all his equipment
A huge line of equipment ready to be rolled into the elevator
Staff fight!
Shaking hands before the duel
Anime Bryce is ready
Connor readies his spear, which I can only assume was confiscated from an attendee
Bryce is ready with his paddle
Later, Bryce snuck up behind Desmond and whacked him in the ass with the paddle, and Desmond chased him at light speed
And skinned both knees in the process. Got to give him credit, he just kept running after this!
Bryce runs to safety
While Desmond limps off his skinned knees
Paddles are fun
I asked Bryce to make a menacing pose
No hard feelings between Bryce and Desmond
I really like this picture of Mike Lee, the head of Tech, because I think it does a good job of showing authority, as well as the exhaustion of the weekend catching up with him

So does that guy with blue hair whose name I never learned
Mohawk guy thought it was funny
Prizes?
Group hug around Bryce. Just revenge after all the chaos he called with that paddle

Jason, my roommate for the last couple of years
The Dead Dog was at the same place as last year, but everyone liked it
Jefferson hung out with us
I'm pretty sure that isn't a valid URL..
