As is typical of me.
But then I was pretty much up in the SCA demo most of the weekend so I didn't really go to any pannels or wander to much. I find though that I always have more fun at a con when I'm doing something like helping with the demo or doing artists alley or what have you. I've never been much for panels and I tend to get bored wandering around after a while. So helping out with SCA was a blast.
Besides, all I had to do was show some clevage and talk to people about how fun the SCA is...I do that when I'm dunk so it really wasn't that far of a step for me. Heh..I was an SCA booth babe.
But overall ComicCon was a BLAST. This is because not only did I get to hang with my old friends (Jen, Seth, Sammy, Marina, Scott, Kyt, Mooj, Peter) but I also got to touch base with some people I haven't seen in AGES (Jarrod, Jeanie, Steve) AND I made new friends this year (Nomi, Marta, that guy from Orkney, Haftan..who I met but never offically really talked to). It was definitely a social con for me. And I, being a social person, had a fantastic time!
Also, I was interviews by CBS.com about the con..in garb. Not sure where, when, or how it will be aired but I found it amusing and kinda fun. The interviewer and the camera crew were really awesome guys who apparently thought I was hilarious. I don't care if that sounds ego driven or not. I made that damn camera man laugh more than once. And apparently, my orange persian coat attracts a lot of attention because people were stopping me for photos...huh. Well if anyone sees a pic of me in my orange coat from ComicCon, send 'em my way?
I made only a few purchases. I bought a "Trust me I'm a pirate" shirt for me and for Max from stupidpuppyhead.com. They have some awesome cute shirts for gamers and various nerds. Check em out! Jen and Kyt also picked me up a copy of "Float Out" The Firefly comic about Wash AAAAAND season 3 of Jerricho which I just found out was made into comic form to try and tie things up. REALLY excited to read that!
I tried to get my Zombie CSU book signed by Johnathan Maberry but he couldn't make it to con due to a family emergency. Maybe next year. I wanted to thank him for visiting Creepy Kitch those couple of times.
Next year I'm hoping to make some flyers for both Creepy Kitch and Sassycast Podcasts and slap em out on the freebee table. I figured it couldn't hurt!
Oh...and I bought a Cthulhu hat. Because I really felt I needed one.
This is my Friday Night Gaming Hat now.
