DRAGON CON 2011

 People lining up for the parade...

Went to Dragon Con over Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, GA, which was my 2nd time in three years. And it was just as awesome as the first time. A few hiccups happened along the way such as camera issues which caused a lot of blurry pictures. And standing in the long ticket line caused us to be late for the start of the parade as we had to settle for some terrible viewing spots. But other than those issues, we had a great time. Stephanie was able to come this time and a friend of mine from high school came as well. Stephanie was able to get a pic with Loni Anderson but thanks to our camera, it came out blurry. She did get Loni to autograph one of her pics though. I did get to meet Kristin Bauer (Pam from True Blood, who is my favorite from the show). I was able to take a pic of her and my friend which made Kim very happy. I got myself in between some stormtroopers which turned out ok. I saw Eliza Dushku (Faith) but there we way too many people in line for her. Also saw Mary McConnell and Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), and Laura Vandervoort (Smallville, V). We saw a lot of people in vampire makeup and several cool Joker (Heath Ledger style) costumes. Not too many Batman though. And this was the 25th anniversary of Dragon Con. That is probably why is more people than usual. Next year we will have a better camera and be better prepared.
