Gen Con 2014

There is no telling how many dice were rolled, spells cast or cards played at this year’s Gen Con.

Gamers from as far away as Australia and Tokyo make the trip to Indianapolis each year to field test the latest tabletop and RPG releases.

For some, it's come as you are. But for those who come to cosplay, the question of “what to wear” can get downright serious.

Pittsburgh's Sheila Henderson, who dressed as a character from a Japanese comic book, spent the entire summer crafting her outfit. Sheila hand-sewed every stitch, and also fabricated her elaborate space weapon.

She does, however, admit to buying the shocking pink wig online along with a pair of white go-go boots.

Sheila packed a different, handmade outfit to wear for each day of the four day event. Last year she wore four completely different looks and says that she is already sketching designs for next year.
