San Diego Comic-Con. It’s my favorite and least favorite time of year. So much fun! So much stress! Going to Cons for almost 15 years couldn’t even prepare me for the madness that is Comic-Con. Luckily, I’ve learned to relax, take it all in stride, and not try to do every. single. thing. Every year I… Continue reading San Diego Comic-Con – here we come!

DSC01033 I’ve been recovering from a gnarly Comic Con cold (stoopid germs) all week so I’m running a bit behind on my Comic Con wrap-up posts. Stay tuned for a post that’ll include pictures and more details on the panels, but in the meantime, Darcy and I recorded a podcast where I go through my… Continue reading HNG Podcast – 2013 Comic Con Part 1
It’s Day One of San Diego Comic Con 2013 and somehow I always manage to forget just HOW insane it is. So. Many. People. It’s always super stressful but it’s also so much fun. I decided to dress like Han Solo and my nephew just happened to wear his Jedi costume so we were pretty… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con 2013 Thursday 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
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
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
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
