Sorry this post was so long in coming. Computer crash = no way to upload the pictures. Anyway....
Last Saturday I attended my first Comic Convention in Boston. Unfortunately, I have no really awesome stories to share from it, but I do have pictures. I also have a lesson learned. Make that several lessons learned.
First, taking two small children for a convention you have to travel 2 hours for and stand in line for another 15 minutes- half and hour is not a good idea. Their enthusiasm turns to crankiness before they even get through the doors.
Second, I need to make blog business cards to give out to anyone I take pictures of. I know this seems like common sense, and it was. After the fact.
The rest of our trip went as follows:
|Bridget "Spider Girl" with Auntie Keri|
|Wesley "Captain America" with Uncle Matt|
Kids were already exhausted by the time we got in line for tickets.
Banded and ready for action.
The line was long, even after lunch.
|Around the corner, down the stairs and out the door.|
Met some interesting characters:
|There is no Comic Con, only Zuul.|
|Robin, Zantana and Superboy.|
|Rapheal! Where's Leonardo, Michelangelo and Donatello?|
|Can't see it in this picture, but her dress has Tony Stark/Ironman print.|
I would have taken more pictures, but the convention area looked like this:
We missed the panels and films:
But managed some shopping:
|I want that one!|
|Wesley's HULK and Bridget's SPIDERMAN glasses.|
My own loot:
|GOTHAM GIRLS t-shirt and a new BONE novel, signed by Tom Sniegoski|
On the way out the kids shot some storm troopers. Bridget needed help with the gun, but Wesley took care of them all on his own.
|Are these all the kills?|
All in all, it was a good time. Sadly, Batdog (aka Calypso) had to stay home and defend the Bat Cave.
|I'm not invited?|
|Why are you dressed like that?|
|I have to protect the Cave?|
|Oh, ok. Batdog reporting for duty.|
Next up: New York Comic Con in October. Who's joining me?
