Dragon*Con has, sadly, long since come and gone. It was wonderful, though, as usual. Here are some of the highlights of this year’s Con experience for me.
2008 was my first real Dragon*Con (I had been in 2007, but only for Monday – and most everyone leaves Monday, so I didn’t get the full D*C experience).
I also didn’t bring my camera around, so the only pictures I have are those I found of us. This post will feature some pretty adorable cameos by Mary.

If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.“

We started off Sunday as Ravenclaws. I made both of our ties and our skirts. My brother carved my wand.

so listen to me sing

Saturday morning we woke up a little later than planned. After quick showers (I said, “I’m not sure if I want to wash my hair. It’s gross, but I’m just going to shove it into a rib cage later.”), we checked out the crowd from our hotel (we stayed on the 50th floor of the Westin – oooh fancy). We noticed a parking deck across from the Hard Rock & decided to watch the parade from there instead of battling the crowds at street level. At 9:45 a.m., we rolled out and were on the 5th floor of the parking deck with room to stretch out before the parade started at 10 a.m.
