We’re back from Comic-Con International in San Diego. As always, it was fun but exhausting. Photos are up at Flickr (most of them — there’s still a few from Saturday and Sunday panels that we need to go through).
For the first time in six years, we both wore costumes during the con. Back in 2003 we went as Riff and Gwynn from Sluggy Freelance. Since then, Katie’s picked one or two days to go in costume (pirate, Sylar victim, and Yomiko Readman from Read or Die), but I’ve stuck with shorts and a t-shirt every day.
So this year, on Friday, Katie repeated her Yomiko costume from last year (only without the trench coat), and I went as the Golden-Age (1940s) version of the Flash (a.k.a. Jay Garrick). On Saturday, Katie went for subtle, and dressed as Kate Austen from Lost.
I did a lot of posting through Twitter and my other blog, Speed Force, where you can find write-ups of three panels:
There’s more running commentary on the posts tagged CCI 2009 at Speed Force.
Over the next few days we’ll both be posting about the trip, about some of the panels we attended, and about interesting things that happened while we were there. Update: Here’s the full list of posts.
