There’s also an art gallery, gaming parlour and lessons in “Manly Deportment” which includes ettiquette, grooming and – most interestingly – cultured misbehaviour.

There will also be plenty of opportunity to part with your honestly acquired monies including La Vie Macabre, SteamBaby, Guardian Games and Aeroporium.

Gear Con 2014 will be held at DoubleTree by Hilton Portland, 4-6 July 2014. Tickets cost $55 for the weekend until June 30, after which it could rise. Children under 6 are free and 7-13 year olds are half price.
