Ropecon 2001


Ropecon 2001

Another year - another theme. This team we went as U.M.B.R.E.L.L.A. workers from Resident Evil videogames. Okay, after the accident so we were zombies.
Inside cardplayers had gathered to swap cards and readying their decks to tournament. Mood was grim and so was the air after a while.
At starts we were just hanging and chilling.
Zombies are always hungry so we had a little bite ... At the local shop workers were nervous about our costumes. You'd just think they'd get used to it ... Ropecon is same time every year.
Miniature games were on. Most of the miniatures were very well painted and great to look at.
And we decided to play too. We played game called Talisman. It wasn't as much fun as I remembered but still jolly old game.
On outside people were fighting with boffer-weapons (mostly soft swords). It's great fun and good sport.


And we were hungry again. Joni demonstrated how handy those meatpies were. If he only could get the bag open. They're delicious even cold.

Some very nice looking daggers in marketplace. And again way too pricy.
Pipsa posing for camera. Say cheese!
And when posing starts Make just had to do his messiah pose.
And always so dramatical Käpy.
Outside great naval battle took place. All ships were made from LEGO building blocks. It was funny how all those yellow faced sailormen were smiling.
After that we wen't inside to play a game of Pyramidis. Time was about 4 at morning so Joni started to question Make's tactics. Also at that time of night those brown and white Pyramidis started to look very much like Toblerone chocolate.
