The Wrath of Comic Con!

The SLC Comic Con was SOOOOOO much fun! The organizers were worried that a few thousand would show up... WHAT?!

Are these people even for Salt Lake? We have such a loyal following here of everything Geek worthy. We also have a fabulous Indie underground culture of artists, authors, and creative dynamos. Close to 80,000 people worked past my booth and I took pictures with the best of them.

I thought I might share some of my favorite pictures with you all so you might feel like you were there.

My Awesome Saturday Crew - Meliss, Beckers, Me, and Sare Bear
I loved this costume! My Illumium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.
The line for the Tardis was super long. We got there just at the right time. It must have just arrived. ;)
The Doctor's new Companions. Don't you love Becky's Tardis hat?
YUNA!!! My fave Final Fantasy X!
We found him... Where's Waldo?

 I think this picture would have been better from the above level looking out over the crowd. Clever... clever people.
Julie helped my on Thursday. She's so awesome!
This R2 unit has a bad motivator! with Julie First day
Julie wearing the Everstar on her Face!
This was the year of the Doctor. There were a lot of people dressed up as one doctor or the other... I mean, they only have 11 to pick from. 
"Oh Zooly - you nut!"
My husband's the one n the cape - a cape his grandmother made for him when he was 5. The cape that says Kevin! This was what he did the whole conference, photo bomb people's pictures with his cape. So look through your pictures everyone. Look for the man in the cape.

My husband photo bombing some Halo guy.

I had to take a picture of Fry and Leela! This was right in front of my booth.
Great Location right next to the Doctor Who Posters.
"You are part of the Rebellion Alliance and a Trader!"

My Nerdy Family. This picture took years to make. At least now we have an excuse to get together once a year.
And a check mark on my bucket list - me with Kevin Sorbo... I had a picture of him pasted in my locker in high school... a picture I placed in a scrapbook and grabbed to get it autographed. Before the doors opened, during VIP hours I thought I might get a chance to see him, and there he was with only a few people in line. I stood there and then I thought "I can't do this" and went back to my booth. I totally chickened out. I placed the picture back in my bag and left it there. Ten minutes later my husband came over to the booth, grabbed my hand and said, "I need to borrow her for a second." He took me over to Kevin Sorbo, where I guess they were discussing me and had me meet him and take a picture. I was so starstruck and couldn't speak... so tall and hunky. I couldn't believe it. I'm placing this picture right next to the one I have with Bruce Campbell.

I can't wait for next year!
