Worldcon misc.

I forgot to mention something. Now that I've gotten sleep, there are probably many other things I should have forgotten to mention <wry g>.

While in the green room before one panel, I ran into Lois McMaster Bujold. She walked up to the table around which many of us were sitting, and I noticed that she was wearing a large, silver-toned necklace. Large as in Very Large -- it was about two inches thick, and flat, and ... and looking at it, it seemed to be composed of... hugo pins. And nebula pins. And something from the World Fantasy. It was, in fact, the feminine equivalent of wearing all those hugo pins on your name-tag. But prettier. She'd taken them to a jeweller and had the necklace made.

My first thought was, I wonder what Resnick would think?

And her first words -- after our many words of admiration and astonishment fell into silence -- were, "I can't wait to see Mike Resnick's face."

Me either. And I didn't :/.

That necklace is known as the "Cetagandan Order of Merit". elisem did it.

I have a not great picture of Lois wearing the necklace, sitting with her new Hugo, online. Links there to elisem's photos too.

Thank you for posting both of the links above -- I think that even elisem's pictures don't do justice to it, but that could just be the effect of having Lois Bujold in the room <g>.

There is this one which shows the necklace better, though the Hugo condombag mars the shot somewhat.

No, the pictures don't do it justice. That's typical of Elize's work, though--in pictures, it looks pretty. In person, it has *presence*.

Lovely stuff.
