Oh my Odin! It’s Vikingfest! 2012 Edition

I’ll admit it. I’m a festival nut. I’m a proud American made up of German, Norwegian, Danish, English, Irish and Bohemian parts (or as I like to call myself, a “Euro Mutt”). I also get mistaken for a crapload of other ethnicities as well. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked if I’m Eastern… Continue reading Oh my Odin! It’s Vikingfest! 2012 Edition

“Ask a Roddenberry” – Interview with Rod Roddenberry

Every time I see Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry I become a bigger fan of him. He’s genuinely friendly and very easy to talk to. This interview was conducted on Saturday at San Diego Comic Con, hence my Thor costume, crazy makeup and obvious lack of sleep. I got back from my Grandma’s funeral a day and a… Continue reading “Ask a Roddenberry” – Interview with Rod Roddenberry

Star Trek night at Dodger Stadium

I’m that rare combination of girl who is a huge nerd but is also a big sports fan. I’m pretty much in 7th heaven right now with the Olympics being on. My favorite non-Olympic sports to watch are football and baseball. I’ve never been to a professional football game (it’s on the bucket list) but… Continue reading Star Trek night at Dodger Stadium

San Diego Comic Con, Part 4 – Sunday Shenanigans

This has been my craziest Summer ever. I feel like I’m never home and I pretty much haven’t been since the beginning of June. Some of the reasons have been great (weddings, visiting new family members, hiking through Yosemite) and some of them have been sad (Grandma’s funeral) but all of them have been very… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 4 – Sunday Shenanigans

San Diego Comic Con, Part 3 – Saturday Shenanigans

Saturday was cosplay day. My first time ever cosplaying in public (I’m uber shy, remember?) so it was kind of a big deal for me. I’d spent a lot of time and energy putting together a few costumes, the pièce de résistance of which was my Thor costume. Then I woke up with hives. Awesome. Everything… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 3 – Saturday Shenanigans

San Diego Comic Con, Part 2 – Friday Shenanigans

I’ve been struggling to figure out how best to showcase my Comic Con shenanigans because I have over a thousand pictures taken over the course of 3 days. I did a post dedicated to the Panels and thought I might do posts dedicated to Costumes, Celebs, Exhibition Floor, etc. but no matter how I worked… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 2 – Friday Shenanigans

San Diego Comic Con, Part 1 – The Panels

I promised detailed blogs about Comic Con and by golly, I aim to keep that promise. There’s just one problem. There’s waaaay too much for just one post. I tried. I’ve gone through approx. 1000 pictures (no joke) and narrowed them down to the best of the best and even then I was left with… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 1 – The Panels

San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Sunday Highlights)

Awwww, I’m sad. Comic Con is over 🙁 I’m starving, sleep-deprived, sore all over and yet I would go back and do it all again tomorrow. I’ll put together some really comprehensive SDCC posts in the next couple of days here with many more photos, video clips and details, but until then, here are some… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Sunday Highlights)

San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Saturday Highlights)

It’s 2:00am again and I’m still sleep deprived. Yesterday was a BFD day for me. It was my first time cosplaying at a convention. I chose to dress up as my favorite comic book superhero/Norse God, Thor (I’m such a good little Norwegian). I put this costume together myself and even did some light sewing… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Saturday Highlights)

San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Friday Highlights)

It’s 2:00am on Friday night…I mean, Saturday morning…and I’m running on about 2 hours of sleep but before I hit the hay I wanted to put together a few of the highlights from today’s…I mean, yesterday’s….Comic Con.  I’ll put together a more comprehensive post after the weekend is over. I just realized it’s 13 pics… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con 2012 (Friday Highlights)
