DD and her friend, Livi, pulled me to my first Comic Con, and it was a hoot!
We arrived almost two hours late, and the lines to get in were still substantial.
DD and Livi dressed as UltraViolet and a bow-tied Dr. Who fan, respectively, on the first night.
DD went steampunk on Day Two.
Two of the first celebrities we saw were Han Solo and Princess Leia.
We also saw Star Gate Command . . .
Iconic cars . . .
And a number of people who once more proved that Spandex is a privilege, it is not a right. I spared myself (and you) those pictures.
We also found evidence that typos are not limited to my blogs or even to this plane of existence.
This isn’t a great picture of the poster. . . . Perhaps with another whetstone.
There were a number of outstanding costumes, but the best ones seemed to be on the guys.
But the biggest hit of the night? Had to be the Peeping Tom Bear outside the convention center. This bear had nothing to do with Comic Con, and everything to do with our taxpayer dollars at work. Oh, well. It gave me a laugh.
Have you ever been to a Comic Con or anything like it?
Speaking of science and science fiction, my friend and New York Times best selling author of the Sigma Force series, James Rollins, will be holding a live chat session tomorrow, June 19, at 3 p.m. EST. A rare chance to hang out with this veterinarian turned world famous author and ask him any questions you like. See below for links and more specific time information.
All the best to all of you for maintaining appropriate use of Spandex.
