Dragon*con 2008 Highlights

Friday, 29 August 2008

  • Brett and Ethan went to see Wrestling in the evening.
  • Someone broke an actual wall in the Centennial ballroom at the Hyatt.
  • Brett overheard supergirl say to a stormtrooper “How much Jell-o are we talking, exactly?”
  • I stayed home to enjoy some peace and quiet.

  • We all got up at Ethan’s usual 7:30 wake-up moment
  • Took the car to the train station – the train Downtown.
  • Dragon*con Parade!!!
  • Watched a martial arts demonstration until Ethan got antsy
  • Went to lunch at the super-crowded Peachtree Center mall, ran into Lenice and Andre, and their friend Lee
  • Ran into Uncle Ronnie while buying Pokemon cards
  • Star Wars Stars’ panel. Ethan’s quote “There was a lot of these guys talking and there was a lot of laughing…”
  • My headcold got the best of me. Ethan’s patience wore out. We went home and left Brett to geek out solo for a while. He saw the very best panel of the Firefly stars.
  • Brett also spotted the Cookie Monster Slayer pictured above right. I decided this was hands-down the most creative costume, and thus she gets the photo spot of glory.

  • My headcold grew to Keesli proportions. I was quarantined for the remainder of the weekend.
  • Brett and Ethan took many photos with many people…
  • Batgirl thought Ethan was cute and gave him a bat-token of her affection
  • Ray Park (Darth Maul) signed Ethan’s lightsaber – “Feel the force!”

  • Padawan Jedi class – coloring, whacking each other with lightsaber noodles, and Darth Vader reading the kids a story… what more can you ask for?
  • Brett and Ethan watched the Saber Idol competition until it got boring

And then we all collapsed in a heap. Well, two separate heaps, actually, because I was still quarantined……
