WisCon 2012 Photos

One of the first things I did at WisCon was attend The Gathering, which is sort of like an indoor carnival. A volunteer was decorating people with the calligraphed word of their choice. Mine lasted most of the long weekend.

Friday morning after breakfast, a friend and I toured the Wisconsin State Capital Building. It was lovely, though I confess I was envisioning it surrounded by protesters, as it was recently.

Badgers are an important part of the decor.

This is one of the gorgeous glass ceilings.

My books were for sale at A Room of One’s Own, Madison’s feminist bookstore. I signed these copies for them. That’s a Carol Emshwiller collection to the left, and some N.K. Jemisin novels in front. I’m in good company!

Saturday night, I attended the Tiptree Auction, which raises money for the travel costs and cash prizes given to the winners of the award. Hosted by author Ellen Klages, who is a hilarious auctioneer, it’s one of the premier events of the con. This is one of the items for sale.

    “Badgers are an important part of the decor” may be the best single sentence from a con report ever.


  2. Heh. Caroline told me about them before we even got inside.
