I-Con 25

lostsatyr and I are back from I-Con 25.

I had a marvelous time - we got to see ramius_rathorne and willowriversong, met schnuder face-to-face for the first time, saw a great many wonderful events, and goggled at the amount of stuff in the dealers' room. There is just SO MUCH stuff to do at I-Con - I missed some things I wanted to see because I was going to others. *pouts* (that's not really a complaint... :)

I got a number of autographs - one of my Firefly DVDs is now signed by Ron Glass, the copy of Daisho I got from bonusparts is now autographed by Stan Sakai (and bonusparts is right, he is very talented), and our copy of CJ Carella's WitchCraft is now autographed by M. Alexander Jurkat! W00t!

Our panel went off very well - kudos to willowriversong and ramius_rathorne for being such good sports and letting me draft them. :)

The Dealers' Room - can we say, "OMG, fan heaven?" It's frelling HUGE! Let me tell you, the other cons I've been to have nothing on this one for number of dealers. I spent nearly all the money I brought on various sorts of "retail therapy" (to borrow meridius's phrase). I came home with a new T-shirt, some of the witty buttons I've been coveting since I saw ramius_rathorne's a few years ago, a very pretty travel mug with a faerie on it, an autographed photo of Marc Singer (yep, he was there too), and some new dice - including a commemorative ICon 25 6-sider (yeah, I'm a geek. :). There might have been more, but I don't remember.

Oh, wait! There was also the plushy unicorn with magnets in her hands and feet! I'm contemplating hanging her off my braid at one of my UB Con events. *giggles*

All in all, a very fun con. lostsatyr and I want to go again next year!

Well, barring my untimely demise, you're both welcome to crash at my place again. I even promise not to be so psychotic about the directions to and from the Con. *g*

And perhaps have better breakfast items...
