DRAGON*CON: QUICK UPDATE  
THE GOOD:

+ Saw Tom Felton all three days he had panels for. Getting to communicate with him at his Sunday panel unexpectedly, therefore my entire weekend was made in that little moment. I has a happy. :D
+ Amazing costumes, from random characters from fandoms to shitloads of steampunk. It was awesome.
+ BSG panel being awesome, Tricia being radiant and gorgeous, and EJO leading his usual "so say we all!" chant.
+ Met up with nicole_anell. ♥
+ Tom Felton being adorable
+ Talking/geeking out/squeeing with random people while waiting in line about fandom things.
+ Had some dude wanting to take a picture of my BSG shirt I wore, because he thought it was awesome looking.
+ Felicia Day and the cast of The Guild being amazing and adorable.
+ Eddie McClintock and Colin Ferguson being hilariously adorable at the Eureka/WH13 panel.
+ Being able to get good seats for practically all the panels I went to.
+ TOM FELTON TOM FELTON TOM FELTON TOM FELTON ♥


THE BAD:

+ No Misha. :(
+ No Whedon or Dollhouse panels, therefore missing all my BTVS peeps including my bb Eliza. :(
+ THE CROWDS ARE HELL OMFG. /claustrophobic attacks
+ Too many conflict of interests, not enough time to get from one hotel to the other without getting trampled by people, not worth being stuck at the end of the line for something and the possibility of not getting in anyway. They need better time management. Or at least not have the biggest things be at the same time as each other, ffs.
+ Sunday had the worst organizers ever, they were stupid and not even thinking about how to manage the crowds. >:| More on that later. Let's just say there were many protests, and we just broke the rules anyway. Fuck the law!
+ LONG WAITING. Which was to be expected so I can't say I wasn't warned for that but, holy fucking shit, the waiting. The panels should last two hours because of all that waiting, jsyk. My God. O_O
+ EXHAUSTION.


More elaborate report to come when I officially return home (with pics!). My flight back isn't until Wednesday, and I'm still exhausted and overwhelmed from everything. Right now I just wanna be home and in my own bed, I'm just drained from everything, omg.
 
 
Current Mood: okayokay

Hey!! Just wanted to wave and tell you I'm back. :) not sure if you noticed I was gone. Haha!

No Misha?!? This I must hear about. Did he not show up, or did you just miss his panel(s)?

There were now Whedon panels? That is sad. Rewatching Buffy right now (just finished season 3), and the man is a genius.
Renée: Misha Collins. IDEK.rogueslayer452 on September 6th, 2011 02:47 pm (UTC)
Oh he showed up, I just couldn't make it to any of the panels because they were either conflicting with other things I was seeing at the same time or the timing between the panels I was in was too close to the ones with Misha (like I would be in the wayyyy back of the line for any chance of seeing him, and it would be not worth it to be sitting in the way back of the room and only seeing him on a big screen)

It was the same with the Whedon panels. Just....a lot of conflict of interests, which is highly unfair for the whole weekened, imo. :/ But I still had fun regardless with the things I did end up going to see.

Squee squee squeeeeee! I'm already home but it was so fabulous to meet you. Stupid panel conflicts and RIDICULOUS seating control issue aside, the con was so much fun!
Renée: Six. Satisfied.rogueslayer452 on September 6th, 2011 02:50 pm (UTC)
IT WAS FABULOUS MEETING YOU TOO! :D YOU'RE SUCH A DOLL, BB. ♥

I'm still stuck here at Atlanta wanting desperately to go home right now, but I don't regret this weekend. It was amazing, even if a bit overwhelming.
