Dragon*Con Pictures Part I

I've just completed the third day of Dragon*Con and I'm bushed!! One more day left, but I expect it won't be near as hectic as it was today. Yee-gads! There were just so many people it took forever to move from one hotel to another! And yes, a lot of them were dressed up just like these two!

After spending a couple of days concentrating on the writer's panels/seminars (which, by the way, aren't near as crowded), I went to some of the media panels today. My daughter and I lined up 90 minutes early for True Blood and were rewarded with the second row. While I enjoyed that panel (and seeing Joe Manganiello – whoo hoo! – I actually springed for a signed autograph), the surprise was the panel afterward – Being Human (which we couldn't line up early, but managed to get decent seats).

I didn't plan on going to this panel, but my daughter was and I thought, what the heck. Why not? I watch the show and I deserved to have some fun! What a blast I had! All three actors showed and it was easy to tell they enjoy each other. Now I can't wait for season two to start in January!!

Also, since my daughter has introduced me to Buffy, I had to go to a Buffy panel. I still have one season left to watch, but not too much was said to spoil anything for me. It was cool to see James Marsters and Nicholas Brendon, and my daughter is a HUGE Eliza Dushku fan. I'm glad I was able to go to some of these panels, a nice break in between learning!

I'll post some more pictures later, but thought I'd get something posted now. If you find me on Facebook (link is located on the right panel, toward the bottom), you can see the photos I downloaded that aren't panel-related.

I couldn't afford to pay to get in to the actual conference, but we did go down on Saturday and just walk around Peachtree Center, getting a lot of great photos and having a blast!

Hi Matt!
I can guarantee you didn't get a picture of me, since I wasn't dressed up (I'm more into comfort than being an exhibitionist), but I was in the Peachtree Center several times (during lunch or dinner). What a madhouse!
