Get your LARPer (short for "live-action role-playing") ass over to the Connecticut Convention Center this weekend for the 2013 installment of Connecticon, that anime-hugging, costume-wearing, lovable single uncle-of-a-bash thrown yearly, with special guests from the comic book, video gaming, traditional gaming and entertainment worlds onhand to sign your duds. (And speaking of duds, wear something interesting, like these fine ladies did last year.) This year's guests include "Zombie King" Arthur Suydam, Jon St. John (whoa, the voice of Duke Nukem!) and others grown men have no reason to admit they've heard of around members of the opposite sex.
July 11-14, $30 and up, Connecticut Convention Center, 100 Columbus Blvd., Hartford, (860) 249-6000, connecticon.org.
