This is my 6th Comicon or so, and it never gets old!
Each year I evolve into a bigger nerd, and each year I embrace it in a new way. This year, I decided to make headbands for each day that I went.
So day one I was sporting my Owly Head band (see below) and the artist and his mom were thrilled to see the fan-nerdgirl in me!
Any ways, After work on Friday - actually Julie let me off at 2! I went and got in the WORLDS LONGEST LINE! It moved pretty quickly so I can't complain all that much, but when I walked in the door, It literally wrapped around the building outside and then through the overpass garden by the convention center. It was insane! I got in line at like 2:15 and I was finally IN the Con by about 3:15 or so.
Then I spent most of the day wandering around by myself, we always part ways at the con and then come back together, and then part, and then come back... it's just the way we operate.
I walked by the display of the "Hunger Games" costumes they had... this was what Jennifer Lawrence wore as Katniss Everdeen while they were in the arena.
The next morning we didn't get going as early as we would have liked, but it worked out nicely because we rode the lightrail into town, and then walked up to the convention center.
Eric and I walked around together for the first two hours or so of the day, then we split up, and pretty much lost track of each other till about 3.
I ended up with quite a few books, and sketches from the artists, but we didn't do as much original art this year, we just didn't have anyone we HAD to have - and Eric has hit a lot of his favorites already.
Found them again - and Eric got his picture with Larry Hama who is the author of the GI Joe File cards, and a great pencil artist - the guy is kind of a legend!
After that, we headed back over to the other side and met this guy - Israel Idonije. He's a line backer for the Chicago Bears - to which Eric said... "Go Hawks". Israel was super SUPER nice, and we had an awesome conversation with him. It was pretty cool to talk with him. He was super excited that we knew who he was. Well, Eric knew who he was, but the dude is HUGE so I wouldn't doubt that he's a football player!
Eric was pleased to be able to see the panel and get to spend some time with his heroes.
After that, we left, I was spent, and completely exhausted.
Eric gave one more stamp of approval for this Bane....
I'm excited to see what 2014 holds, and excited to get posts up about my books and art, but that's not till after I clean my much neglected household.
