Day One: NYCC '10...



Today was the first of my two day stint at New York Comic Con (NYCC) and it couldn't have been better. The day started off with me waking up at 6:30am so I could get ready, then go drive to Lenora's house so that we could take the train together. We got into NYC a little bit before 9:00am and headed from Penn Station to the Jacob K. Javits Center. We got our passes relatively quick, then I changed into my Batgirl costume and then we waited on line until 10:00am when Professional Hours started. We wandered around the floor gathering swag till it was time to go to one of the Professional Panels.

Around 12:30pm my friend from Cali met up with us and we went to help her change into her costume -- She was dressed as the Phoenix (Jean Grey) from X-Men. We continued to wander around the exhibit hall where we had tons of people asking for pictures of us together, with them or just one of us on our own. We were so busy with photos that we were late to the Zombie Apocalype panel.

After the panel we saw Seth Green setting up to sign autographs and we obviously took pictures -- The line was way too long to wait on. Since that line was horribly long we wandered around some more, shopped a bit, I got stopped to take a photo and it ended up being for Library Journal, which I'm super excited about. Once that was done with then we tried to go get Sherrilyn Kenyon's autograph and a picture with her for my cousin -- That like was crazy long so that didn't happen. We decided we needed to sit for a while so we took a twenty minute break before looking around some more, got asked to do a video for some zombie sci-fi channel and then heading back home.

  1. The geek in me is completely jealous, I want to go to a Comic Con so damn bad.

    That's it, I am officially adding the San Diego Comic Con to my bucket list.

  2. I have been trying for the past two years to get my Director to send me to Comic Con in San Diego to no avail. He claims it can't justify it to the Library Board. Which is bull, because I can justify anything.
