|Giant Jenga! (And I wasn't even the one to knock it down.)|
This weekend I attended the Ottawa Geek Market. The Geek Market allows local vendors and artists to sell their goods to the nerd community. The vendors included toys, art, costumes, clothing, books, comics, manga, vintage video games, new video games, board games, card games, LEGO, and more. Cosplay is encouraged, and many steampunks, goths and lolitas were also in attendance. It was great seeing some of the local pro-cosplayers such as Kudrel and Detailed-Illusion. Several panels and workshops were held, such as "cosplay ettiquette" and "plushie making."
There was also a gameboard section where you try out all kinds of strange games and even play giant games (like giant jenga!). AND 8-bit Bazaar was there with screens and consoles galore with all kinds of different games.
I had a lot of fun getting all fancied up for this event. It's not everyday I get to go out is full victorian goth garb so I enjoy any chance I get.

All in all it was a fun day. I highly recommend going if you are looking to check out local artists or pick up a geeky accessory or game.
