Politicon 2017

This event seemed bigger than previous years, which is good. It took place in Pasadena instead of Los Angeles.  They utilized another building for passes, which surprised me.

It was interesting this year and I was expecting things to get crazy considering any tension from the left and right. I saw a few people get kicked out of a panel and then those same people got into a verbal altercation with Trump supporters. Otherwise, nothing too crazy happened.

I saw a booth that had buttons that you could make with your photo and a slogan of your choice. I tried to think of something funny or creative. I came up with Vash’s motto, “Love and Peace!”. Ultimately, I took advantage of the fact that I cosplay as Napoleon Dynamite and I chose, “Vote for Pedro”. I thought that was funnier and more appropriate. I may even use that button at future conventions.

I was quite happy to meet Greg Proops in the Exhibit Hall. My friend and I even got photos with him!
