Awesome*Con DC 2013 - geekery comes to DC! (pic heavy)

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I might have only known about it for a day but I would declare Awesome*Con DC was a rip-roaring success! Compared to Dragon*Con it was wonderfully low key and I just got to enjoy my time wandering around and seeing how DC would respond to such blatant geekery (they responded well).

I tired to pick my favorites of all the pictures to post here but if you'd like to see more let me know; I just uploaded them to FB but I'd be open to a Flickr album as well. I was a little trigger happy and didn't remember to get the names of the all the artists I admired BUT I think if you go through the links on Awesome*Con's website you should be able find everyone.

Cute comic from the convention program

  Nicholas Brendan (Buffy) & Phil LaMaar (Futurama)

Loved this artist's style - solitary but still super cute.

I wish I had room in my house for these 8-bit tapestries (or the money to buy them, lol)!

Me: I didn't go too over the top, but I figured a corset would be completely appropriate right?

Geek + DC = Love

Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters)

I have no words to describe this except: AWESOME.

Powerpuff Girls in Costume! I was *this close* to buying this picture but I have almost zero wall space and I'm trying to exercise some sort of self-control. I kind of regret the decision though. 

Some of my favorite costumes of Sunday....

Left: Carmen Sandiego & Waldo; Right: Boba Fett & Leia

Left: Yuna; Middle: Unknown Steampunk Couple; Right: Fionna

All in all I had a fabulous time and will definitely be looking into going both days next year!
