Default My New Orleans Comic Con 2012 Experience

My New Orleans Comic Con 2012 Experience

DAY 1: Got in at 4pm, which was when they opened the floor to us non-VIP types. Lots of cool stuff that made you feel like a kid in a candy store (or more accurately, toy store). Bought several t-shirts. As far as Galactica went, they only had one original series based t-shirt, and that was the pic that you see for the old movie poster, or novel cover of Saga of a Star World. HAD to get that! Also got two new BSG shirts and a Weyland Yutani t-shirt. They threw in a patch of my choice...and I had three choices, but had to toss coin to narrow it down. Ended up with the patch that Colonial Warriors wore on their uniforms in the new show. (BSG 75) Got a t-shirt with the Comics Code from 1954. Bought a die-cast Hot Wheels miniature of the new Enterprise from the recent Star Trek movie, which will sit nicely beside my refit Enterprise, Enterprise D, U.S.S. Reliant, and Klingon Bird of Prey from the same Hot Wheels line. Sat and had my picture taken in the DeLorean replica for a 20 dollar donation to Team Fox (Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's Disease charity).

Met Marina Sirtis for the second time. Got her autograph. Met Michael Dorn, got his autograph. Met David Della Rocca and Sean Patrick Flannerhy of Boondock Saints and got autographs and pics taken with them.
Saw some cute cosplay chicks. A very lovely Zatanna cosplayer. A mighty fine Psylocke cosplayer (who is a professional costume maker... Yaya Han). And a cute little Misty cosplayer from Pokemon.

Eliza Dushku is supposed to appear tomorrow. I am not sure if I want to be anywhere near her, because I looked at the pics I had taken of me with the Boondock Saints, and I look like a frakkin' creep. If I look that unattractive, I don't think I want to present myself to someone of such beauty.

Overall, fun first day. Will likely go in around noon-ish tomorrow.
