As ever, I had a fabulous time at show, even though Car Drama that
hit two days before I left wiped out 2/3 of my spending money for the
week.Never pleasant when that happens, but nothing to be done but
adjust and go forth - and shower thanks on friends who took care of
your Evening Beverage needs!
For the first time ever I had a camera-like device in hand. I'm
part of my department's mobile strike force, which means I spend a lot
of time moving all over the convention center and off-site in the
execution of my duties. Let's just say 7- to 9-miles walked daily
during show week is not uncommon, and I see a lot.
Turns out I took over 300 on-the-fly picts! No wonder that guy at the other outlet where I streamed most of them for upload here later complained. Here's a small selection. Many of them are crap because they're phone pictures. Do you care? Didn't think you would!
Only wish I had been table to take pics of even more of the fabulous costumes, which were everywhere, maybe slightly more than last year.
Though there are captions embedded in the picts, looks like TypePad still hasn't fixed the hover problem, so you can't see them. Sorry.
Artists Alley is the best place ever. You have to dive through the Badlands of the film/tv/videogame booths to get to it, but it's so worth the trek through Mordor. Unfortunately 3/4 of my AA shots came out crap, so here are the almost decent ones.
I made Steve Lieber give me back the swag from the Whiteout movie.. heh.
