DC seemed to take over the con with Green Lantern getting a big push. Not only were we treated previews of the upcoming toy line and video game, we also got a panel with Ryan Reynolds, Geoff Johns and Blake Lively. The cherry on top was the premiere of the newest DC animated film Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.

The best part of the weekend was getting to meet so many of my Twitter geek friends. At the Geek Girl Con party I had the chance to have a brief, yet great chat with @PapaLlama. I also (after missing her on Friday) got to finally meet my favorite Twitter pal @amy_geek on Saturday. We got to have a nice chat and I have to say, she’s as awesome in person as she is on the interwebs. Really hoping to see more of these two soon.
In an earlier post I put up a pic of the costume I decided to get together for the con (The Eleventh Doctor). It was the first time I did anything like this and it was partly inspired by two people, @amy_geek and @TheNerdyBird. Seeing them attending all these cons in their awesome costumes made me decide, “What the heck, I’ll give it a try.” As I mentioned before, when comes to cosplay, I’m more of an observer. I have to admit, I dug it. Yes, it was a little uncomfortable but it was fun. It was especially awesome since I had the perfect companion in @TheNerdyBird, who makes a great Amy Pond. It looks like I may be getting another costume together for FanimeCon in San Jose at the end of May (maybe something Pokemon?).
