OK, Mariah, this is a very well written description of ComiCon. Especially "These people are bigger fans of their things than I am of mine." Thanks
Wow, Mariah, what amazing observations you made! I would have walked through, and said to myself, "I don't get it."
6. Take lots and lots of photos and share them on your BLOG. Where are the amazing photos of amazing people in amazing costumes?
Great article Mariah. I hope your Comic Con experience also included dropping by Ben Hansen's booth (of SyFy's Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files) to meet him and our family. He's a very active Church member, doesn't charge for autographs, is still single, and owns his own production company. He had a blast but continually finds himself having to set boundaries to ensure that he doesn't go, "Where no Mormon has gone before. . ." Great article!
Well said, and, as always, well written. Thanks for a peek into a world I know nothing about.
When I was a child I read comic books, but when I grew up I "put way childish things." I simply cannot imagine adult men and women wandering around dressed up as super heroes or other fantasy characters (unless it's for a Halloween costume party). Yes, I enjoyed Star Trek and Star Wars and LOTR and look forward to seeing Ender's Game (Card is a favorite author). I have some favorite fantasy and sci-fi novels. But I also have a real life. I'm certainly not going to go ga-ga over, say, William Shatner (who has always been a really bad actor, even in Star Trek).
