One of my favorite parts of Comicon is seeing all the people that dress up!  Some come as their favorite comic book super heroes,  science fiction characters, action adventure stars and even Disney princesses!  And they LOVE taking photos so don’t be afraid to ask! ๐Ÿ˜‰  Just the people watching, could be reason enough to attend.

Last year, I met the author of the Last Unicorn and he signed a copy of his book for me. ๐Ÿ™‚  I even got my picture taken with one my favorites, Tinkerbell (see below).  There are definitely some “PG-13” events and costumes but overall, it is a family friendly event that your kids are sure to remember and talk about for years to come.

I will be there, camera in hand, and hope to see some familiar faces/other nerd loving Moms there too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hi Mermaid Odette! I did not make to your panel/class but thought many a (little) girl would enjoy it… alas, there are only boys in my family, my generation and the younger ones (I am the only girl!). Hope it went well and you had fun at Comicon!
