Checking in from I-CON

It's that time of year, when sci-fi, anime and fantasy fans head East to gather at I-CON, the big Long Island cosplay and gaming hot spot, celebrating its 30th year. Spread out across the campus of SUNY Stony Brook, it draws a pretty wide swath of fans (as evidenced by the massive line to check in three hours after it opened) thanks to a rather diverse line-up of seminars, celebrities and silliness.
Best overheards so far: "Why did you wear that?" To a extremely underdressed and extremely cold young lady. And "Furries!" "We're not furries!" To, well, no need to really explain.
