SDCC: Day of Recovery

July 25, 2011 @ 2:05 pm | Filed under: ,

Well. The Monday after Comic-Con always feels like it should be a Saturday. And my legs always feel like noodles. It’s like a month’s worth of walking crammed into four intense days.

Worth the fatigue, though absolutely.

As always, it’ll take me the better part of a week to sift through my notes and photos. I’m working on panel recaps, but my scrawled notes take a while to decipher. Sheesh, do I loathe writing things by hand. I thought about bringing my laptop this year but my shoulder bag already weighed a thousand pounds even before I started adding books and swag to it.

(I know, it’s unfathomable that a gadget-geek like me doesn’t have an iPad yet. What can I say? All my money’s in children.)

ANYHOO. I’m pretty sure it’s against Comic-Con Recap Law to start a post with this many words AND NO PICTURES. I’m a rebel like that.

But now, after this long drumroll, I notice that Huck’s naptime is nearing the wake-up point, so guess what? Out of time, no more words, just pictures. I’m a rebel even against MY OWN PLANS, I guess.

Is this Blue Meanie costume awesome or what?

Look! It's Becky & Frank! We love their Tigerbuttah.

You haven't lived until you've gotten a steampunk fist-bump.

Lego Batman = So Very Cool

Might as well start my SDCC post roundup now:

Day 1: Quick Peek

My favorite costume: Neo-Victorian biologist (at GeekMom)

Day 2: Again with the Quick Peeks

Things My Kids Can’t Wait to See at SDCC (at GeekMom)

    My children and I are dazed by that Lego Batman! We’re trying to fathom the hours involved.

    Ooo….! Can I have a copy of the Blue Meanie costume? I did the covering and figure finishing on it, but I didn’t get to see it on a live person until this photo. Thanks for posting it!

    So cool to have the costumer visit the blog! Lynette, it’s dazzling. I think Kristen Rutherford is showcasing it on GeekMom tomorrow. 🙂

    Ellie—there was a Lego Boba Fett too. I’ll post a pic!

    And Wendi, SUPERFUN to see you here. For once someone else’s handiwork was my Daily Swoon! But then I melted over your paper-embroidery postcards today. You are a swoon magician. 🙂
