Crox Minor and I are just back from geeking out at the the London Film and Comic Convention. As you can see it was very busy.

We met our old friends Genki Gear and updated our stock of T-shirts.
Crox Minor’s leggings received many incredulous stares and several compliments from other delegates, some of them in costume. A woman in a shiny blue bikini and fishnets asked Crox Minor where she’d got them. A man dressed in black leather and fangs took a photograph. So, for all you lovely people, Crox Minor got her leggings here.
Notwithstanding inasmuch as which I’m pleased to say that my geeky T-shirt received a few knowing grins from several geeks, and for those interested you can get yours here.
We spent a happy day buying more geekwear, as well as animé, manga and old SF paperbacks. Crox Minor told me a great deal about new subgenres of which I had hitherto been unaware, such as vocaloid animé.
Perhaps the best thing was the costumes. So inspired Crox Minor and I already have plans to come to a convention disguised as a Steampunk Klezmer band, with her saxophone (pretty steampunk without adornment) and an accordion (tricked out with all kinds of extra valves and dials and things.) Alternatively we could come as the Knights Who Say ‘Ni!‘ – I am already scouring eBay for suitable antlers. What the heck, we might do both. Though neither simultaneously, nor at the same time.
I am really proud to have engendered offspring with whom I can enjoy such innocent geeky pleasures. Truly, I am the Geekfather.
