Bitten By the Con Bug

Storm Trooper I caught waiting for the bathroom. How long must THAT take to get out of?

At first, I started out small.  One little Sunday pass to PAX . . . just a little bit to try it out.  I thought I could handle it.  I went to panels, I got Wil Wheaton’s autograph, I chatted with Felicia Day . . . that’s when things started to slip from my grasp.

Then came geekgirlcon.  Two days surrounded by my fellow geeky ladies, no big deal right?  I went to a panel hosted by the authors of Whedonistas and saw lots of awesome cosplay . . .   I swore I wasn’t addicted, that I was just using cons recreationally.

Then, I went to Steamcon last weekend and let me tell you this girl is addicted!  Blogs?  Screw blogs!  I’m going to a panel about steampunking Harry Potter or making your own Storm Trooper outfit out of your old graduation gown and a bit of string!  (Ok, if they really had that, that’d be awesome!)  Anyway, here are some of my pictures from my recent convention adventures:

The crappy picture I got of Wil Wheaton because I was too chicken to take another one.

The sign Amy made for his dice cup!

Pound it.

I love people in cosplay doing mundane things!

The wonderful ladies at geekgirlcon

And the one man who dared to venture with them . . .

And now for the Steamcon gallery.  I gotta tell you, the pictures are a small fraction of what I saw there, and they don’t do it justice.  It was so amazing that I slapped my husband for going the last two years without me!  Never again!  Tickets are already bought for next year!
