A convention for every man and his passion

There are two times when my passion for scale modeling makes me feel like a geek. First, when I tell the woman I'm dating about my hobby. Second, when I attend the IPMS National Convention. With the latter only a month away, I ran into a video that changed my view on things.

Have you heard about BronyCon? It's a convention for fans of My Little Pony. Their last convention, held at the Meadowlands Convention Center in New Jersey, attracted more than 4,000 attendees. I think that's more than the IPMS Nats! The show features artwork, fan fiction, music, videos, and celebrity guests. Any fans of Brenda Crichlow among my readers?

I'm all for following your own path in life, so far from me to judge anyone's interests, but these videos made me smile, and I'm sure they'll do the same for you. So if you're attending the IPMS Nats next month and feeling a little self-conscious when an attractive convention hall employee walks by you, just remember this video, and maybe you won't feel quite so self-conscious.
