I made it safely back from Scotland! I had an amazing time, saw beautiful places, drank too much, and lost a few pounds (haha… get it… they use the UK pound…. sorry). I have several great posts in the works and am ready to catch up, but first…
I will be attending Wondercon on Friday only, due to Renaissance Faire obligations. I’ll be dressed as Wonder Woman at a convention for the first time since 2011! My armor is all polished and my golden lasso is ready!
For those of you who haven’t attended WonderCon, it’s a wonderful event and I highly recommend it to old-school convention lovers. It’s growing fast, but is usually compared to SDCC before it became the pop-sensation that it is today. It’s much smaller than SDCC and that leads to really great interactions between fans, creators, artists, cosplayers, and staff. The parking can still be difficult, but it’s do-able and there are probably even hotels still available in the area if you decide you want to head down there this weekend. It’s also right down the street from Disneyland, so it’s a great weekend destination for the whole family or Disney-lovers. The convention even arranged discounted Disney tickets for convention attendees!
For all my panel-loving friends, I highly suggest attending The Psychology of Star Trek vs. Star Wars, Friday at 1:30pm. Dr. Andrea Letamendi, you may know her as the Huntress from my Steampunk DC group, is an amazing panelist and is sure to make a great case for Star Wars! Brian Ward, the steampunk Green Arrow and copper-working genus, is going to be refereeing… er… moderating the discussion.
I hope to see you there! Follow me @GoldenLassoGirl to find me or to get in touch!
