A creeper!! This is the first Minecraft cosplay I've seen in the wild

Midna from Twilight Princess
id: 31067
The sterile government buildings lining the streets in Crystal City make for an odd environment. It almost feels like a video game world
id: 31068
I botched the lighting on this one, but it's Sub-Zero and Scorpion from Mortal Kombat!
id: 31069
We used to use an old Dr. Pepper box for storing ballots, but one year it was thrown away as garbage. So now we use this fancy Companion Cube

I picked this up in Artist's Alley

And of course, the flip side

Who is manning the VAT?
id: 31095
I didn't even notice how reflective the window was until later

What is the drink, you ask?
id: 31106
Creme de mint, of all things.
id: 31107
My turn to try
id: 31108
It wasn't as bad as my face here implies, but it was strange
id: 31109
What's with the look, Joy?
id: 31110
I tried on Vic's glasses.. to horrifying effect
id: 31111
Mckeed and Joanna showed up too

There were QR codes all over the place. Most were from AUSA and linked to various things online

I'm not sure what this crowd is gathered for, but the VAT is packed!
id: 31114
I'm back at the rave!
id: 31115
These guys were in the back on computers. Not sure why

Hey I know that guy

New DJ
id: 31118
These girls were dancing around right by the speakers
id: 31119
Omar brought cake! Amanda is super stoked, as you can see
id: 31120
I like Jeff's computer name (and avatar)
id: 31121
The real purpose of the creme de mint: to alcohol up our cake
id: 31122
The cake was a lot more moist than last year since we added the liquor at the last second
id: 31123
Oh man, what could Dr. Wily be up to?
id: 31124
Perhaps reaching out and grabbing.. da mooooon?
id: 31125
Brakus grabs his cake
id: 31126
Note that most of the people in the room are us
id: 31127
Since Bryce was showing so many Saturday morning cartoons, he brought Pop-tarts for everyone!
id: 31128
The few audience members who were there loved it
id: 31129
A glimpse into Bryce's mind.. but really the playlist for his Nostalgia Bomb panel
id: 31130
Note Sunday's hours... open 10am to 12mph?
id: 31131
By the end of the Nostalgia Bomb, there weren't a lot of people left
id: 31132
The victorious Iron Editor: Erika! Congrats!
id: 31133
We found a potato in the corner.. really.
id: 31134
Except not really! It's plastic! We placed it on the projector for the morning crew to find

Mckeed shows off his extreme balancing skills
id: 31145
Ryo-Ohki held onto the potato for us
id: 31146
Vic got a pretty spiffy vinyl figurine. It's got actual strings for the guitar!
id: 31147
We were in no huge rush to pack up
id: 31148
That handle isn't there for you to balance on, Bryce
id: 31149
Vic's had a long weekend
id: 31150
Bryce and Rinny
id: 31151
Vic is too tall
id: 31152
Omar gets an action shot from the floor?
id: 31153
Rinny thought it was pretty funny
id: 31154
Alan packs up the screen
id: 31155
Omar and I tested our cameras by using Mckeed as our subject
id: 31156
That's odd for someone who lives in Massachusetts..
id: 31157
Camera duel!
id: 31158
Ahh! The ranger!
id: 31159
I bet I could use this to clean up multicolored paint. Mario!
id: 31160
The escalators didn't have a wait time, as opposed to the elevators
id: 31161
Almost done moving out
id: 31162
We got everything piled up in the lobby until Vic got the van
id: 31163
The video server!
id: 31164
I wouldn't advise trusting that blue sticker, Amanda
id: 31165
Planning out how to get all the stuff in the van
id: 31166
So much crap!
id: 31167
Did we remember everything?
id: 31168
Mckeed is too tired
id: 31169
What's up, Alan?

I better not lose this!

I really liked the overexposed glow of Alan's camera in this one
id: 31182
Sitting around in the bar
id: 31183
Hey Alan
id: 31184
The pretzels and cheese things were really good
id: 31185
Hey guys, what's up
id: 31186
Alan let me try out his wide lens adapter
id: 31187
I like it. The vignetting could be annoying sometimes, but look, it's almost fisheyed!
id: 31188
Amanda's getting ready to do some welding
id: 31189
The whole crew gathered around the table
id: 31190

We got menus with our logo on it!

This is totally normal

We rented bikes from Capital Bikeshare! Here comes Joanna!
id: 31194
Joanna had a really fun time on the bikes. So did Jeff, Joy, and myself

Joy snagged the last empty slot near the hotel. Jeff had to find another dropoff point!

The lights of bikes rented by other AUSA staffers and guests
id: 31197
Here comes Jeff! It was so much fun
id: 31198
Zoom!
id: 31199
Back at the hotel, Jeff wanders around looking for a place to leave his bike
id: 31200
Amanda's not sure about his chances
id: 31201
He's back! No problem!
id: 31202
Back upstairs for the after party. And by party I mean sitting around
id: 31203
Omar demonstrates how he can stretch his hair out
id: 31204
Putting the last of the stuff in the van

Walking to a diner with the only people left: Jeff, Joy, Amanda, and Vic
