I've been home from San Diego three whole days now and finally feel like a human again. Comic Con hit me like a ton of bricks and I slept for two days straight basically and left the house yesterday only to get groceries (must feed).
But that just means that this year's SDCC was AMAZING! Aside from one or two tiny mishaps, it was the most fun I'd ever had at SDCC. We saw everything we wanted to see, hung out and partied a lot (my feet are wrecked) and spotted/met several celebrities. I generally only want to shake their hands and tell them how much I love their work, I never ask for photos or take up much of their time. But as much as I try to not to fangirl, one thing did make me starstruck, and that is getting Robert Downey Jr's autograph on our collectible prop. No, we didn't get to meet him in person, but we have his signature, which makes my life complete.

I dressed up in four costumes, did a couple of photoshoots, had my meetings and did some networking. We of course missed seeing some friends but I am super grateful for the time we did have with everyone.
All in all, a near perfect weekend, and now I have TIME OFF till Dragoncon! I have been working for 7 straight months with hardly one day off and now I have like 4 weeks of vacation! Laying around for the last three days was the best ever. But now I have to clean up my house and start on Dragoncon costumes. I'm planning to have at least three new costumes to debut so wish me luck!

Oh, and - Everyone! Go for it! Add me on Twitter. I just joined and it's weird and bizarre and hilarious! Kevin Smith talks about his private parts a lot. Follow me and see what I talk about lol

I'm on the twitter, but I don't post anything art related, mostly idiocy and jackassery, but sometimes I post something mildly clever and funny.

I was looking for you, but didn't see you. You're really inspiring when it comes to cosplaying, and I really look up to you! Oh well, if you attend next year, I'll try to look for you there.

And I'm glad you had such a great time at SDCC!

Yay fun :) woo! It sounds like you had a great time at SDCC :)

Also I just wanted to let you know Yaya that I made a Live Jouhnral post dedicated to you, located here --> [link] most recent post. Mostly questions of costume making, prepardness for a con, and the like. To be honest that post explains my curiocity of how a cosyplayer can make so many awesome costumes so well.

And maybe get a tip or two?

I think my energy comes from the constant panic deadlines adrenaline pumping through me.... ^^;;; That's why I deliberately took 4 weeks off. Aside from filling store orders at [link] I don't have to do any work. I am hoping this will recharge me for Dragoncon.

Apparently SDCC is now looking for a new location because they keep hitting max capacity, so I can't wait to see what they come up with! I went two years ago and keep missing it now, so hopefully I can grab onto next years event! glad you had fun, and discovered twitter!

For me it was a more successful con, but I think I hurt a lot more than last year. All that walking in heels T_T....

I am glad you had fun at SDCC
it seems everyone who went had fun. I am making plans for going there or to AX next year, but I´ll have to save LOTS of money.
Anyways, it is good that you have time to rest, everytime you write a journal it seems like you are very busy so a vacation may be good for you.
