    From a Student’s Perspective: Icon 26

    I-Con rocks! From the second you enter the lobby of the Sports Complex, you find out that the Stony Brook Campus has been transformed from a place of mundane education, to a Sci-fi/Fantasy/Anime dreamscape.’

    My previously held belief was that I-Con was completely contained within the confines of the Sports Complex, but boy was I wrong!’ I-Con is composed of many different events held all over the campus, from the Computing Center to the Earth and Space Sciences Building.

    This year, Jamie Bamber, the man who plays Lee Adama on Battlestar Galactica came, signed autographs and gave lectures.’ The Javits’ center, normally a very boring building, badly in need of repair, played host to two of the MythBusters!’ Kari and Tory of the MythBusters spoke about experiences behind the scenes on the set of the show.

    The most memorable things about I-Con for me were the highly ornate costumes that clearly took weeks to make.
