Comic-con 2011

Comic-con this year was quite relaxing! Amazing how much of the con you can see when you are not painting in your room the whole time. >.<

We only sat in on a couple panels but it was just about right. I have total ADD and can’t sit through too many panels. Judy and I went to a Patricia Briggs panel on Thursday. We figured there was no hope of getting into the George R.R. Martin one so we opted for another author we liked. It was interesting to hear how she came up with the idea for her Mercy Thompson series, which is that her publisher decided they needed an urban fantasy series so asked her to write it. o_O

And then on Sunday, we got up retarded early and sat in line to get into Hall H. We were aiming for the Supernatural and Doctor Who panel, but we also sat through Glee which was in front of those. The Supernatural panel was awesome!

At one point, we ended up across from a booth that had the Game of Thrones cast at it. We stopped to watch them and I was looking at this really hot guy getting interviewed, and I turned to Judy and was like: How much you wanna bet that’s the guy who plays Jamie Lannister? =D (Turns out I was right… Cheryll confirmed it for me later.)

I didn’t bother dragging around a camera so all my photos are scrounged from other people and there aren’t that many.

My new costume for the con was grumpy girlfriend Mai. I kind of sewed her buns on half asleep though and ended up with Princess Leia Buns. >.< Oh well, I will fix it before I wear it again. (And those bangs are just tragic on me.)

We tried to get into the Avatar fan panel but after getting a bit lost trying to find the room, we arrived to find it full. So we wandered around outside waiting for people to come out, and ran intoand her friend (and I suck and can’t remember her name). I love that they both did rarely seen costumes!

Some of my fav cosplay groups that I saw on the floor. Doctor Who group! The Roman centurion Rory = LOVE.

I just recently saw Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and I really liked it! Maybe cause I was expecting it to be really bad? ^^; I love the designs of the Red and White Queen’s soldiers and this guy did an awesome job!

The delorean!

I also wore my Ironette.

Cute photo that Judy got of us.

And we managed to score some crazy light up kitty ear hats.

I think that about hits the highlights of my con!
