Just me talking about costume-y kind of stuff
Dallas Comicon was a great success! We didn't spend nearly the amount of money on autographs and photographs that we were planning on simply because there were just too many people there and the lines were too long, especially for the Firefly cast. However, we did get to see the Firefly panel and the Alice Cooper panel. We got autographs from Akira Takarada from the Godzilla movies, Alice Cooper, and Kevin J. Anderson, who wrote Clockwork Angels. I also got a photo with Chloe from Season 6 of Face Off! There were lots of Kaylees there and a few Mals, but mostly everyone wore their Jayne hat. I didn't see any other Simons and only one River. Lots of people asked us to pose for photos, which was fun.
Next time, we come for two days, stay overnight in a hotel, get VIP passes, and leave the kids at Grandma's house.
We also met kid book author, Charles Thurston who writes mashups of Star Wars, Dr. Who, Firefly, etc... with kid books like That's Not my Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton, Good Night Moon, and Teddy Bears Picnic. His books are AWESOME and cute at the same time. If you have a little one that you'd like to introduce to your fav sci fi characters but the movies might be too mature for them, buy them these books! His website link is below. His tagline is "Family Friendly Art, For the G33k@Heart".
