    OMG!!! Today was an absolute blast! Odde was right, SW in 30 minutes was hysterical! I loved it! I got asked to take a lot of pictures(LOL, wearing gloves and having my hair dyed people still asked for pics ;))and most people thought it was humorous that there was Ani and Obi(Brandon and Carl)and then me.Rogue.LOL.How fun! I found a girl who is dressing as Rogue tomorrow, but she doesn't have the hair so....... :D YAY!

    BTW James, he did share! I made sure! They are currently in my purse...LOL....

    Pat, we have to meet up...look for a Rogue and an Anakin....WE HAVE TO MEET :D

    the con has been absolutely increadible! We'll try and get some pics up soon....
    I got a promo signed by the cast of Van Helsing(Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale). It was crazy. I
    We(Luna and I) stood in line for 3 hours to meet Wolverine himself(I was dressed as Rogue, no less)when the stupid Security Guards changed the line, but didn't bother to let anyone standing in line know...grrr...I was in front too...however, a good friend of mine was working security for the stars(not the stupid crowd control people)and he went and got one of the promos signed by everyone in the cast for me.It still wouldve been cool to get a pic with him.....but, THANK YOU MIKE!!!!
    An-e-ways, its been fun...I've actually been asked to take a ton of pics, and feeling like a celebrity isn't all that bad :D It was funny, there was a trio of X-Men(Wolverine, Jean Gray and Cyclops)but they were missing a Rogue ;) I walked by, and they wanted to take a picture with me...a couple people saw, and I was stuck for half an hour taking pictures with the "x-Men" but I didn't mind...:D
    there was two other rogues walking around but neitier had the hair...well, we are leaving for Con now, so....I'll post more later!

    Yes Comic-con was truly a blast, except Courts and Luna?s little bad line experience, everything went smooth. Walking around with complements coming left and right and tones of pictures taking of me really made all the time, money, and energy that I have been spending making this Anakin costume for the last two months, all worth it. I Love you! [face_love]

    Plus I have to give a big thanks to my friend April who got Carl and I a 4 day Pass, Court a 2 day, and Gen and Tommy both a one day pass, all free! You saved us all a lot of money this weekend and if it wasn?t for you, sweetheart, I would not have even been able to go.

    I loved seeing are fellow neighbor Fan Force's sporting there really cool tables/booths. San Diego had cool cards, and a big wide screen showing pics, and some events they have had in the past to grab the eye of other Star Wars fans from SD to sigh up.
    Orange County, too, had a every cool setup including a cool CGI rend ration of a transport souring around the famous OC symbol, the ?Orange Death Star? Next year I can only hope we will be as big and as great as a are fellow Fan Forces. I have 100% confidants that we will have a table next year.

    It was cool to see all the new Star Wars costumes again this year. Hay Brandon, it was very cool finally getting to meet the ?other Brandon? ;) (Even if it was brief) I think it?s kind of intrusting how we are both named Brandon and we are sort of the same character hehe ;)

    All I can say is I had a blast, and surprisingly so did my bro. Though that line poodoo was pretty bad it was trying to remember where I had parked that was worse. This was further componded by the fact that we both were wearing new boots for about 19 hours.
    Wandering around downtown SD for about an hour was really sucky. Funny thing was that we were actually going in the right direction but we doubled back a few times.

    Anypoo it gave me an excuse to go in my gi, hakama, sandles, and carry my bokken on sunday. Manuel still curses me for the blisters. 8-} (it's his own fault for never wearing sneakers)

    It was still fun and we both got some pretty good deals the last day. Hopefully I can finish off the cameras I had and get the film developed asap. There are some pretty interesting pics in there.
