    I prefer to keep things loose and goosey when I'm on vacation, but if there's a copy of the events handy, please let me know so I can get a rough outline going if nothing else.

    Yeah. . .Z minus two days. . .woohoo!!! :)

    :cool: Hey guys..just got home from Dragoncon! It was so cool! It is such a huge event and I can't stress hugeenough!I had an awsome time and there was so much to see and do. Unfortunetely I was not able to see everything I wanted to. Many things like panels that I really wanted to see were booked back to back with 3 others I had an interest in. I did however pack as much in as I could for the con and took a lot of pictures. I got to meet Prowse and Daniels! They are both very friendly and I managed to get a picture with both as well as the autographs. That was my big highlight. I was in awe of all the costumes...especially the really difficult ones to make. I would go again for sure and do recommend it to others! It was an amazing experience![face_dancing]

    Back from DragonCon. Detailed reports to follow. Here are some highlights

    The Good:
    - Meeting Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Orli Shoshan (Shaak Ti), Rena Owen (Taun We), Kiran Shah, Summer Glau, Alan Tudyk, and The Mythbusters Buildteam.
    - Seeing some of the most amazing costumes ever
    - Seeing panels with Anthony Daniels, Amy Pronovost, Ellen Muth, and Elonka Dunin (separate panels, not all the same one)
    - Tiki Dinner at Trader Vics
    - Countless dealer room finds in including a resin replica of Jayne's LeMat Revolver from Firefly.
    - Marching with my Jedi Brothers and Sisters in the DragonCon Parade
    - Drinking with the cast of BSG at the Colonial Day Party
    - Participating in the sketch at the Hogwarts Yule Ball
    - Standing in line with HUNDREDS of Browncoats for the Shindig
    - Shaking it in the drum circle

    The Bad:
    - My camera decided to stop working on the first day of the convention after 2 pictures.
    - Coming to the conclusion that I will probably be only able to attend this con every other year due to financial reasons


    For pictures, search using the tag "dragoncon2006" on [link=http://www.flickr.com]Flickr [/link] or [link=http://www.flickrleech.net/]Flickr Leech[/link] to get a feel for what this event looked like.

    Looks like it was a great con! I definitely have to go to it next year. As I paged through a few of the Flickr images I noticed a couple of familiar faces in pictures taken by some of the attendees:

    I've started posting some reports on my livejournal:

    http://laughingmagpie.livejournal.com

    The ones I'm doing now have photos in them and I tend to keep those viewable to 'friends-only', so if you have an LJ account, please friend me and I'll be able to share.

    I've started to collect some of my favorites on flickr too:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/27512116@N00/favorites/

    We should plan to meet and swap/share photos - and I'm sure if any FF member was interested they'd be welcome too. Maybe at the next meeting?

    OHMYGAWD....how fun was that!! I'm still recovering. I'm pretty sure I've never slept and ate so little or had so much fun! A bunch of us have decided that we are likely going to skip C4 so we can go to DC again. C3 was a ton of fun....but nowhere near the same kind of energy or vibe as DC. I'm going to attempt to do both....but if I can only do one next year it's going to be DC. Already planning costumes! WOOT!!!
