Chi-Fi 2015 Recap

This year we were invited to get involved with Chicago’s own Chi-Fi convention. Along with our usual booth triage we participated in judging the costume contest as well as hosted Saturday’s after party event. It was great to see the Chicago sci-fi and fantasy community get together to support this local event and we had a lot of fun.
