Quick Comic-Con Re-Cap

In a word, Comic-Con is overwhelming. There are just SO many people and So much stuff.  I mean, I thought I'd probably see someone I knew there, because there were a lot of people that I knew that were going, but Gee Whiz, I don't see how anybody ever met up with people they were planning to there.

Really, really, an awful lot of people.

The good news was that my shirt came!!
This is a reference to Game of Thrones.  Danearys Targeryen cannot find her dragons...

But see, I am not Danaerys, so my dragons are easy to find...they are in my books!  hehehe

However, they give you a Gigantic bag when you enter Comic-Con--we are talking HUGE--and it kind of covers all of you up.  So, no one got to see my funny shirt.  (Let's be honest here.  It probably wouldn't have been that funny to that many people, really.)

On the bright side, I got a couple of stormtrooper shots:

Stormtrooper/Vader mix + Star Wars kilt guy = awesome

See that thing that is hanging off of me?  That is the BAG.  It went to the FLOOR!!

And there was Lego stuff:

Those are larger than life murals built from teensy little blocks.

I have more pictures, including one where a giant Lego Captain Kirk seems to be putting the moves on me, but blogger is being rather moody and refuses to let me add anymore.  Or perhaps blogger has more taste than I do and realizes this post as gone on long enough.

Anyway, we did not end up staying the whole day.  Cali wanted to go to Ikea and eat meatballs, and judging from the plates of cold-ish pizza that were floating around, that idea sounded pretty good to me. 

Before we left, I did meet Marissa Meyer, author of this amazing little book. Perhaps you've heard of it:
Hmmm...blogger let me add this pic, but denies the Captain Kirk....suspicious.
I spoke to Marissa for a few minutes (lovely girl) but didn't get one of her books or arcs because the line was colossal.  Really, it was a line to end all lines.

Actually, that's what Comic-Con really is, lots of people, lots of stuff, and lots of lines.  

Lots of fun, too, though!

Thanks for sharing a quick re-cap of your Comic-Con experience. I think it would be fun to attend, at least once.

Your t-shirt is cute!

Did you see Steph Perkins?

Looks like you had a great time! I'd definitely consider going one day. And btw, IKEA meatballs win me over ANY time.

Comic Con sounds like such a blast - especially for people watching! I hate lines, so that would drive me bonkers, but I'd still like to check it out one day!
