Holy wow, has it already been this long since Comic-Con?
I had an amazing time, as you can probably imagine, but came home with a gnarly cough and cold (Con plauge, uuuuuugh!) that pretty much ate my last two weeks. I'm feeling much better now, but time just flies when you're spending almost every spare moment sleeping.
The con itself was amazing
, I got to meet `sambees
, who I have known forever Online but finally got to meet in person!
I was running around so much I didn't get to spend much time with her at all, which I feel terrible about. Sorry, Budgie
I got to meet our other scholarship artists too, everyone is so darn talented and so darn nice. You guys are amazing.
During my free time at the con, I was dressed as femme!biker!Logan, and it was so fun to watch people recognize what I was dressed as. It was a very non-cosutmey costume, it was the cigar that sold it, for sure.
and I even fought!
It was a great time, made even better by the fact that the costume was easy to get in and out of so it did not interfere with work time. It also happened to fuel one of my most memorable moments of the con. I ran to Mark Brooks (`diablo2003
)'s booth to have him sign a comic and to head to a dA panel he was speaking on. We took a little detour and walked the con floor to look at action figures, then headed outside for a smoke before the panel. While we were hanging outside, a girl dressed as (a very awesome!) X-23 spotted my costume and ran up to ask for a photo. We posed, pic was snapped, she said thanks and went on her way. ...Never quite realizing that the person standing next
to Wolverine was the guy who draws her character.
You gotta keep your eyes out at Comic-Con, you never quite know who you will run into!
I got hugs from *AlexBuechel
, delicious, beautiful cupcakes from *Franchesco
, got to hang out with *duss005
and was drawn by so many artists! I will update with photos/scans soon, I promise.
You can find more info on the amazing time we had at #Comic-Con
, where they kept a day-by-day blog, something i failed to do.
For now I'm just glad to be home with my kitty and hard at work for the site. Lots of planning going on now and cool things to come!
Hope all has been well for you guys, be good to each other, and sorry again for how darn long it took me to get this journal up. P.S.
