And this set includes the last few usable pictures from the costume parade. Again, I appreciate any help identifying these.

All ten of these pictures are from the costume parade, same as before my camera was not intended for people on the go.
GenCon Cosplay Pictures Set 02
The last three pictures of this set are from the costume parade. Unfortunately I was late to this and couldn’t get into a good position. Also, my camera was not doing so well with moving targets - it takes too long to charge the flash, too long to save the pictures, so about half my photos from the parade are unusable and I only got pictures of a small fraction of the cosplayers.

A bit later than I intended, but I do generally think of days as being from dawn to dawn and by that thinking this is still Tuesday. As before, the images are compressed using the site compressor.io and I need lots of help with identifying the cosplays.
Work and play have conspired to keep me off tumblr for a couple or few weeks. Apparently I should do that more often, I gained followers while not posting. I’m kind of conflicted about that. :P
Anyway, I have a few pictures from GenCon (mostly went to buy stuff, and didn’t expect nearly as many cosplayers as I saw), but I may not post them until Sunday night. I have hopes of going to Matsuricon this weekend - I’m not sure, because I broke a toe in my sleep Wednesday night. Don’t ask me how, I was asleep at the time and have no idea. (Well, I’ve got an idea, I was probably rolling in my sleep and my toe got caught in the sheets - but I’m not certain.)
I won’t have any time tonight to post or catch up on posts, and if I go to Matsuricon I may not have any time until Sunday night (and not much then) and it may be Tuesday before I get any tumblring done.
Ceramic 3D Printer
Artist Jonathan Keep has put together a 3D printer to produce digital objects out of clay, and has put together a document to build one:
Based on the delta type of 3D printer my aim has been to use parts that can either be made with basic DIY tools and skills, or ordered off the internet. The design is specifically for printing in clay but could be adapted to work with other materials. Many other self build 3D printers use parts printed in plastic but with this project I did not want to be reliant on already having access to a 3D printer.
Looking at Jonathan’s website (in particular the ‘Digital Pots' section), you will see various series based on various ideas. There is the Random Growth of generative forms, Sound Surface based on musical audio data, and other computational methods.

Orlando, who was dining with Leonardo DiCaprio at the Cipriani restaurant on Wednesday night, was very, very angry, when Justin, who didn’t have a reservation at the eatery, approached their table to try to talk to the actors.
DiCaprio had proceeded to shoo away the pop singer with his hand, leading Bieber to provoke a fight which saw Bloom jump over a sofa to get at the 20-year-old Baby singer at the restaurant."
