DragonCon Recap: Sunday

Day 3: Saturday

(My costume of the day, photographed by the lovely Heather)

Saturday has the most gaps in it, though not too many.

Got up early to do the D*Con parade. It was the first year I’ve walked in it, and although my alarm never went off, I managed to get up on time and get dressed and be at the park by 9 for staging. I wore my Rajasthani garb with a new veil, and fiddled with it the whole way (it is hard to wave and fiddle). We had about 15 folks, including a couple of awesome musicians, and TheChickenGoddess wore her Hot Dress (TM). Her husband was a hit in his chariot. My husband was helping to pull said chariot. In the future, we’re going to plan to have plainclothes flyer-hander-outers, since it worked pretty well this time around.

Afterward, we did another clothes-change, and the husband wandered in his Lectroid outfit for a while (see above), before which we got lunch and delivered it to Jennie. She had no panels that day. The husband and I saw the dealers’ room, the exhibitors rooms, and took a turn around the Walk of Fame, which was disappointingly empty. I failed completely to get a James Marsters autograph for Matt. Better luck in the future, I guess. We also met up with the ChickenGoddess for facial hair hijinks (CG, if  you don’t want this up, tell me and I’ll take it down):

Doesn’t she have a rockin’ ‘stache? I had one, too, but I have no photo of myself. I was hirsute. It was hard to laugh, thought, because the glue would become un-tacky and so you kind of had to hold your moustache on and giggle. There was a lot of moustache-holding.

Then we had a snack, watched stuff on DC*TV, saw a Patrick Stewart panel (he is hilarious), and then later on met Telaryn for dinner. We had intended to do Hooters, but it was a zoo and the employees were very rude, so we ended up at a Mexican restaurant, which was much better (and quieter and more polite).

That evening was evening 2 of kilt-blowing. I wore the day’s costume, and got even more waivers signed, and it went okay, except for a photobombing by Nigel the pirate. We hung out a bit and then went to bed. It was exhausting.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
