It was an incredible surprise visit to Comic Con! Exhausting and exhilarating! I finally made it to a Simpsons panel thanks to a very special fan of my own who provided me with a most coveted invite. I saw some incredible costumes, amazing artwork, and talented performers. I bought too many t-shirts and not enough comics and artwork. I went to an awesome panel on building communities in Sci-Fi and it turned into just an insightful talk on all manner of writing topics by some incredible writers (only some of which i have already read). Let’s just say that i have a pile of new books to read now. Until next year!
Finally done with the work part, i am able to explore the con. panels, shopping, and incredible costumes, oh my!
The first episode was a great start to what i know will be an entertaining and darkly hilarious madcap adventure. Waiting for the remaining episodes will be the difficult part. Neil Gaiman delivered a brief and amusing introduction. Tasty nibbles were provided. Though this work is originally from nearly 30 years ago, i only read it a few months ago. Perfect timing (i did not know the show was coming).
This small exhibit includes audio/video recordings from the Daily Show cast as well as Trump Survivors. Even a set with a golden toilet and props to pose with. (i had to grab a tie, but it wasn’t long enough for me). We were given name tags upon our arrival complete with nickname (mine was “Buzzkill be3n”). you can see the whole exhibit in under an hour. well worth the visit!
Sunday June 17th is the last day in LA. 631 N Robertson Blvd. 12pm-10pm.
Meet the Artificial Intelligence that runs Security Systems Corp in the 80s television show Max Headroom.
(I’ll tell you later why this is significant)
The convention ended weeks ago. I Finally got all my pictures sorted (as well as my dad’s). These are a few of my favorites. enjoy. I had a blast and as usual, the costumes were amazing. Thanks to Forest and my dad for making this happen and sharing your pictures. Huge thanks to everyone at Wondercon and especially everyone in costume (please send me links and i will happily include them here). See you next year!
Even Captan Hammer needs tech support! I am always delighted to be awesome in the presence of someone who’s work i respect and admire. Forest was furious as soon as she recovered from the shock of it! She asked me to help tidy, not two hours earlier. I am a master procrastinator where cleaning is concerned. “Lets just watch TV instead,” I said. This may have hurt those efforts for years to come.
