Denton County Outlaws(mens roller derby)
This weekends world record attempt for the most Star Trek fans in costume was my first Star Trek fan event ever and I LOOOOOOOVED it. It was so much fun spending the last 2 months planning what wear. Especially finding all the requisite gadgets. Who knew a tricorder could be so much fun.
Going out to the Dallas Convention Center and hanging out with other fans of the show was transformative and a little surreal. I felt like I was on a movie set. Even though we didnt set the record the experience was out of this world and one I would love to do again. I was so enthralled with the day that when it was all done I just could not bring myself to take my Starfleet uniform off right away so decided to go grocery shopping in it. LOL. That was also a delightful spectacle. The pick up line of the day became..."Can I feel your tricorder?"
Love love love to everyone who graciously succumbed to my obsessive photo taking. We will have this memory forever
