My teen-aged daughters, one of their cousins, and I will be attending ACen 2011 dressed as UNIT troops from the British TV series Doctor Who.

This is a fairly simple costume, but I threw in a little extra work on the ID badges.

Here's a link to mine, sans photo because I haven't taken it, yet. Apparently as a n00b I can't insert images in-line:

Note that the two QR codes are scan-able. They point to URLs of the wearer's choosing. If someone at ACen with a handheld device scans them, it will take their Web browser to the URLs.

P.S. - Ten points if you get the in-joke on this badge. Unfortunately, the points are made up and they don't matter. That's right, the points are just like arguments on the Internet: it doesn't matter. :lol:

I tend to think of him more as the guy who crashed the Enterprise-B in Star Trek VII: Ferris Beuller's Day Off.

Ten points for getting the in-joke. Unfortunately, everything's made up and the points don't matter. That's right, the points are like sobriety to Charlie Sheen: it doesn't matter.

I'll stop by if we get a chance. Anime is my daughter's fanac -- mine's Star Trek, as you might imagine. Consequently, I pretty much let her "drive" at the con and just tag along for the dealers' room, occasional panel, and inevitable photo-ops. If she finds a free moment, I'll make sure we pop in.
