Pax was awesome, start to finish, but the coolest thing was how well the chainmail went over. A lot of people liked it and I got a ton of compliments. I met some cool people and it was a great conversation starter. My only regret is I did not wear the chainmail sooner, as I only wore it on Sunday.
I bumped into some serious chainmail people, particularly was the girl who runs Knitted Steel. Apparently you can buy stretchy rings which make awesome bracelets, I may have to try that out.
I also played Duke Nukem Forever! Say What!? That's a pretty big deal.
