Last year I posted about an event I was part of, Night At The Museum at the Tellus Science Museum in northern Georgia. You can read about the basics of the event there, and see pictures of me portraying Jules Verne. The event was successful and they had it again this year, just this past Saturday. To keep it fresh, the museum changed things up a bit and changed the theme to emphasize where science and science-fiction meet. Several sci-fi costuming groups participated, including the 501st Legion (Star Wars costumers), the Tennessee Who Authority (Dr. Who), some local Star Trek fans, and even a small representation from Firefly. We mixed that with some typical scientists (Nicola Tesla, Albert Einstein, etc.), historical figures (Wright Brothers, Amelia Earhart, etc.), and sci-fi authors (Jules Verne, H.G. Wells) and their creations (Captain Nemo, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde). And this year my wife and I were different characters.
Here's a video that was taken at the event. You can briefly see me in the character parade.
The event was very popular and successful, bringing in over 200 more attendees than last year. The marketing director of the museum has already confirmed that we'll be doing it again in 2012. And I'll be sure to post pictures again!
