I promised pictures, so here they are!

At the end of February, I made a joke on my FB about how I haven't been able to afford a haircut, and as a result, I have "Winter Soldier Hair" - well, naturally, many of my friends decided that I HAD to do the costume. Since I was planning to go to ECCC at the end of March, I thought, sure, why not!

Well, really, it was because my friend, Tash, commented and said "I know how to make costumes. I can help." And since I don't know how to make costumes, I was like "this is the only way that this costume will happen, so, yes, please." It took us about 4 working days in total when it came down to it. Plus, some last minute trouble shooting on my end, but we managed to pull it off!

Pictures! )

I might do another post about ECCC itself, we'll see... it DID kick off with not only meeting Kelly Sue DeConnick, but also escorting her to her booth! So, that was cool! :)

So, as none of you know, because I barely told anyone - I went to Emerald City ComicCon this weekend down in Seattle!

It was the first time I've ever been to a comic convention - I didn't know quite what to expect, besides the fact that this year it was bigger than ever. My friend and I decided we'd travel down on Friday, go to the Con on a Saturday pass, and then travel home on Sunday (today.) So, that's what we did.

Con report! )

All in all, a great day!

My older sister who lives in Seattle was there on a weekend pass. She does not watch Supernatural, but for some reason she decided to go to Misha's panel this morning. These are her tweets and facebook statuses (there are no spoilers):

-Misha Collins panel. I don't watch Supernatural (yet), but apparently this guy built his own house and all the furniture in it. I must know more!
-Jensen is a nibbler and Jared goes for the tonsils. I'm learning so much at this panel.
-I don't think I'm going to learn anything about Guinness WR or homebuilding DIY at this panel. Its all Supernatural chat. Damn
-Yay, a fan asked about carpentry and poetry. He didn't talk much about it though. Boo. I think I'll bail.

Later in response to a question about whether she's going to give the show a chance, she added:
-It is on our TV show radar for one day, we're just behind on so many shows right now. The panel was really cool and he seems like a nice guy. I heard a lot from the fan girls about how cute he is in his suit, so I must watch

So, apparently my sister talked to Misha fangirls and was not scared away...good job fangirls! ;)

Anyway, I have a ton of fun. I think if I were to go back, I'd probably want to go for two days so that I could go to panels AND see the showroom AND eat, and not feel run off my feet.
