Day one as the attendees line for all entrance into the main gaming area.
More lines to see the newest things in gaming. I was told that close to 20,000 showed up
the first day.
This is one of our signs .You couldn't miss it looking up from the main floor gaming area. The sign was in the windows of our second floor room.
Here's our sexy booth girls. They were working the entire convention hall handing out flyers and ballots to the show. Nice outfits huh!
Here's face plate displayed. Pelican was kind enough to build this display case specifically for the show. Nice job! Thanks!
As you can see the case was full of great one-off pieces from Bio Tatscru, Futura and SketOne. Some really great artists.
A little glimpse of Vulcan, SetOne, MadL, MiskOne, Ewok and Tristan Eaton's 360's
Some PSP covers at the bottom of the case. Nicer made that cassette deck psp.
Andrew Bell make the cover in the middle. He also painted the UMD game covers for the psp. Andrew will soon be working on a limited edition for Pelican. Great job! Andrew. Gray of DESTRUCTO is the gray piece, another fine job!!!
More PSP cover, Stash, Dizmology, JunJun of BBPBX ,Ree and a student from my sons school, Helena of I.S. 125 here in the Bronx.
This is a case on the other side of the room where we put all the customized pieces for the raffle.
We must have filled this part of the case three or four times over. We had show attendees winning customized face plates every hour.
Just wanted to give my face plate a little shine.
