Hands down one of my favorite surprises of the weekend: the Signless Sermon.
So I was walking around the Dealers Room and saw a really neat Signless cosplay, and so told him I thought it was cool. He thanked me and told me that if I was interested, he was giving a sermon in front of Artists Alley at 2:00. I figure, okay, this could be kinda neat, why not?
So 2:00 rolls around and I start migrating towards the sermon spot, thinking maybe he’ll have a few people standing around him, speaking out like one of those roadside preachers or something. To put it simply, I was wrong, and this is just another example of why you should never underestimate the Homestuck fandom. You go big or you go home.
He had a bit more than “a few people” that I had expected, and was not standing in the crowd but up on a fucking balcony preaching down to this huge-ass crowd holy shit this guy is not fucking around.
Unfortunately, the crowd was blocking traffic, but luckily this didn’t stop the sermon. He came downstairs and a hoard of Homestucks followed him outside, where he continued his sermon to all who stopped to listen. I mean this dude had a prepared speech and everything.
Oh and there was a Link cosplayer playing an ocarina in the background (you can see him sitting in the background in that last pic).
This whole thing was pretty surreal, but it was so damn cool.
