New Ferenginar Joins Forces With Actual Ferengi!

As the curator of Ferengi costumes and artifacts, I sometimes get to be involved with unique and exciting Ferengi  related opportunities...and this is no exception.

Max Grodenchik and Aron Eisenberg will be appearing as Rom and Nog  in full costume and makeup in a few select cities!  This is great news for Ferengi fans and for Star Trek fans.

When I was contacted by the representative for Max Grodenchik and Aron Eisenberg to lend screen worn costumes for upcoming photo ops, I felt obligated and honored.  One stipulation... I wanted to present the costumes to them in person!

My request was granted, but I would need to drive to the 2013 Vegas convention to do it.

Well I did and I was not disappointed.  I was escorted back to the green room and there they were.  I have met Max numerous times before, and he remembered me (even where I work?!), but I had never met Aron.  We talked about costumes and props, values, and the marketplace. When the talking was done, we took some pics. These guys were generous with their time and couldn't have been nicer.

Here are the 2013 dates and locations to be a part of this opportunity:

August 25, 2013 in Seattle, WA
September 8, 2013 in Nashville TN
November 9, 2013 in San Francisco CA

Deep Space Nine may be over, but you can still take a great memory of DS9 home with you.  If you are fortunate enough to be at one of the above conventions where they will be in costume, go get your picture taken with them.  Help to make this successful so that they will continue to do it and give fans what they want.
