Hi, I'm Brandon. I have over 30 years of geek experience. Yes, I wear bowties. Bowties are cool. I consider myself a pretty well-rounded geek but my areas of specialty include comics, Superman, Star Wars, movies, Tolkien, The Simpsons, comedy, and more. Apologies in advance.
Dragon Con was last weekend (two weeks ago) and I’m still recuperating. I had a blast as usual, but this year was special because my wife, Elizabeth, went with me for the first time. She wasn’t sure how much she would like it, but she had fun too and we’re already planning to go back next year.
In preparing to do this recap, I realized I barely took any pictures this year. No pictures of crazy or cool cosplays. Only a few pictures of panels. I guess there are only so many times I can look at a picture of a tiny dot representing some celebrity so I just didn’t bother this year.
We arrived on Thursday night. We had stopped to buy beer and groceries on the way. We got our badges in record time, checked into the hotel, met up with our friends, ate dinner, finished reading Lev Grossman’s The Magician’s Land, and went to bed early (for Dragon Con at least). Thursday was pretty non-eventful.
I’ve recently started following this woman on here and seeing the evolution of this costume. It’s amazing (and so is her husband’s). They also have a great gender-bent Beth and Daryl from Walking Dead. I kept my eyes peeled for them at Dragon Con. I wanted to see this in person, but this photo is amazing.
At school Wednesday, we had a system-wide suicide awareness program going on. At the elementary level, we called it “Celebrate Life” or something like that. We were all supposed to wear yellow for some reason. I really forgot all about that until I walked into school Wednesday morning. To make matters worse, not only was I not wearing yellow, I was wearing my new skull tie and zombie socks. I had been excited to get these just in time for the Halloween season, but talk about bad timing in wearing them for the first time.
