We first arrived early in the morning-- this is the glass encasement that is the convention center.
Some signs. Note "Twilight" and "UP"-- of which we got to watch the first half-- very cute, be excited.
There were a number of Dealer's Room Entrances-- which is always a good idea. Note how empty it all is-- very early.
Better shot of an entrance way.
The majesty that is Faker.
A demo of the new Ghost Buster's game-- it looks pretty badass; Stay-Puft man is terrifying.
The Dealer's Room from the 'bove.
DC and the con itself was all about Watchmen.
Other side-- Silk Spectre II got wiped out by the lights. Big loss.
Patrick saw his love, a girl from G4 who remembers him from previous comic cons.
His reaction after she asked to interview him for the show.
The interview in progress. He thanked Katy about a million times for making him read Watchmen, thusly giving him the knowledge to be interviewed.
Here's Dave Gibbons telling us we're about to watch the first 18 minutes of Watchmen and the room started spazzing.
A Watchmen Wall in New York featuring Katy as Rorschach.
Featuring myself as Dr. Manhattan.
Some real cosplayers. Hellooooo Boba Fett.
I found Masque De Masque
Some fucking Power Rangers. How are there two Tommys? You tell me.
Now for some Arts-- this was taken for Meg as it features some boyfriends.
Another one for Meg-- he's a'pretty nice.
Old school and totally awesome looking.
Rorschach lookin' fine in front of his book cover.
He left the con with us and felt at home in his natural habitat. A city who fears him.

The written version:
So we got into the city at about 6:30 in the morning, luckily the hotel let us in that fucking early, but Friday was totally exhausting. Those crafty mormons got us in as "professionals" making our passes cheaper and giving us bonuses like getting into the dealer's room two hours before the general public. DC had a great setup, swag was grabbed by the handfuls and stuffed away, Patrick got to talk to his lady from G4 who then did an interview with him about Watchmen-- I thought he was going to pass out.
As far as panels go, we got into the Watchmen panel where we learned we would get to watch the first 18 minutes of the film followed by a clip from later in the movie.
EVERYONE BE EVEN MORE EXCITED FOR WATCHMEN THAN YOU CURRENTLY ARE-- be it very or not at all XD
The beginning alone was gorgeous and the clip afterward gave me chills, it was amazing.
We sat in for Yatterman with Takashi Miike wherein I leapt like a fucking gazelle to the autograph line to retrieve Emilee's signed poster because I aim to please XD After that I believe was the Futurama movie-- which MIGHT be the last one because it kind of ended like it might be, I was confused but in love and it was strange XD After that-- bed.
Saturday turned us into costumed heroes-- Katy made us all shirts to symbolize one of the Watchmen. She was Rorschach, I was Dr. Manhattan, her dad was Ozy, Patrick was Nite Owl, and Daniel was The Comedian. Evan was not Silk Spectre, but it would have been funny.
This was the day we saw UP and clips and panels of other gems like Friday the 13th and Terminator. It never sounds like we did much, but there's so much to see and take in that it takes up a lot of time. We did leave the con somewhat early to see a bit of New York Saturday night. Got to see Time Square all lit up and eat an actual dinner at Applebee's. It was very nice.
I can now say I also know where to find the Fashion District for whenever Meg, Lisa, and whoever else wants to come with us finally get to go to New York. Our hotel was along the street with a lot of fabric stores. It was hard not to stop in D:
Sunday was much like any other convention. Duane left early for work and the rest of us hung out a bit, got last minute necessities-- I saw that girl Triumph called a whore in San Diego, then we left. Ten hours and some long insightful talks later we were home!
SOME OF YOU GUYS COME WITH ME TO A COMIC CON NEXT TIME :D
