I was at Dragon*Con last week with some of my fellow Skepchick Network bloggers. It was really wonderful to meet some of the Mad Art Lab crew in person, and it was awesome to catch up with my fellow Skepchicks who were there too.
Between you and me, hanging out with these guys was my favorite part of D*C, but a very close second was seeing how much people invest into their fandom and their art and their geek flag. From exhaustingly accurate cosplay, to lots of passionate people up at 3:50am … playing board games, to vendors and creators proudly offering their creations for my enjoyment. It’s a crazy peek into the depths of the human experience, in a way.
Given the chance to play, which is a grand bit of good grace in itself, these folks gave it all they had. They talked the talk and walked the walk of they great passionate Charles in Charge fanaticism, or whatever. I was impressed and envious all at the same time.
How do you commit to the things (not the people) you love? How do you “walk the talk”?
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3pm ET.
