Steampunk Flash. We actually did a feature about his costume last year by the costumers who made it.
My full set of WonderCon 2012 photos are up, from Friday through Sunday. Sunday was really different than the first two days for three reasons:
- We brought our son along (it was his first comic-con). Having a toddler with you really changes what you can do, how you get around, how quickly you can get around, etc. He had a great time looking at people and displays, and playing with demo toys.
- We got in late and were stuck parking waaay out at Angel Stadium. (On Friday I actually parked in the convention center lot.)
- I forgot to drink water and ended up thoroughly exhausted and dehydrated after only four hours at the con.
Seriously: Drink water. Especially if you end up eating salty food because it’s what’s available and you can eat it fast. You’re walking around for hours, and if you’re spending multiple days at a con, you can wear yourself out easily. That’s especially bad if you have a long drive home at the end.
Full convention write-up coming soon, Monday if I can make the time. [Update: it’s here, and it’s linked!]
