All-Con 2012 Top 5 Moments

So last weekend I went to All-Con in Dallas. This was my second year at this particular convention and I really loved it last year. Now sometimes you run into the risk of a convention being awesome one year and being super lame the next year. But this was NOT the case at All-Con.

In fact, All-Con has become my favorite convention of the year! And I HIGHLY recommend that everyone check it out in 2013. It's a great con especially for first timers. There's something for everyone--whether you're into sci-fi, anime, steampunk, faire... if you're a gamer, an artisan, it doesn't matter, there's so many shenanigans to be had.

It's also a smaller convention so there's not the tendency to get overwhelmed by crowds and stuff to see. I've been to cons that were so large that I would see people I knew and tell them that I'd catch up with them later, only to never see them again the entire weekend.

All-con is not like that. There's lots of time to chat and hang out with your con friends.

So... here's my top 5 favorite moments of All-Con 2012... in no particular order.


Hosting my costuming panel. It was one of the first panels on the first day so turnout wasn't great, but I did manage to cover everything in the 45 minute time slot.


Seeing the Damsels of Dorkington!!! They're an improv comedy group that butchers classic literature by infusing it with ridiculousness and nerd trivia all for the sake of comedy. I even got to guest star in one of their shows again. It was a blast! They're an awesome group of people. Check out their website: http://damselsofdorkington.com/


Winning Runner Up in the Cosplay competition for the 2nd year in a row. (This is last years trophy but they look just the same.) The Sailors rocked it out!


Meeting Camden Toy. For those of you scratching your head, Camden Toy is a character actor who's played many of the demons on Buffy and Angel... Including one of the Gentlemen in the silent episode of Buffy, "Hush". (We're holding scalpels, btw.)


Seeing an amazing replica of the Delorean from Back to the Future.

And of course the bonus moment.

Hanging out with all my friends! AND celebrating the 1 year friendship anniversary with Heather and Amanda, whom Michelle and I met last year at All-Con. (We never went and took pictures at our table). Heather squeed over me because I was dressed as Hughes from Fullmetal Alchemist and I latter squeed cause she and Amanda were dressed as Zoe and Kaylee from Firefly.

Well that's it for today, I have to go to work now.

Stay tuned for my top 10 favorite costumes!!!
