The Strangest Things Show Up At Conventions

And I don’t mean the con goers.

Yesterday, I joined a few friends on a trip to Florida Supercon, which meant two things: getting more StreetPass hits on the 3DS (32! If you went, look for a Mii named Gene. I got a person from Sega Bits, so…) and humiliating people in the gaming room. But no self respecting con is complete without a dealer room with overpriced or weird items, like a remote control miniature tank that fires B.B. gun pellet for $70. Awesome.

But this isn’t about a toy that can be used for amazing purposes. Instead, enjoy oddities such as Sonic themed snuggies (robes you wear backwards) and bath robes. Other than that, it’s the typical showing of those little Sonic beanie hats in Sonic, Shadow, and Super Sonic varieties at $18 (!) a pop.

Apologies for the shaky quality. I was using my cellphone and the lighting wasn’t great.

      I looked through my list this morning, but they don’t keep their greetings. I think it was a guy just named Alex?

        Ah! Okay, that was probably nuckles87 of SEGAbits and Sonic Stadium. I had no clue he was there. He is a secretive man, he is.

      It was all the way down here in Miami and it was more a spur the moment thing. Boring Sundays, you know?

    They actually sell that Snuggie in the FYE where I live. I was actually tempted to pick one up.

    Hey hey, I was there. I remember seeing those at the front store in the convention plaza.

    I have the “cozy robe”, not the one seen here. The one I have is all blue with a Classic Sonic posing in the center. Other than that, it’s plain, but I like it that way.

    Dude, I bought that Sonic comfy throw snuggy on the 4th! I fucking love it.
