DragonCon 2010 trip report – Saturday

Saturday morning was the parade, which, as usual, I skipped in favor of sleep. :-( The weather was really nice on Saturday, actually, so it was a good day for it.

We met on 10 for another dance rehearsal and to take some pics!

Here is jainamsolo as Penny from the Big Bang Theory:

Doug and I walked to Walgreens to pick up a few things. It is not close. But it was a nice day.

I wore my brain slug. Until I got far enough away from the Con to feel silly. :-)

We passed this church:

You can see the tall Marriott on the right:

When we got back, we were near the dealer room, and Doug wanted a brain slug, so we got him one!

R2!

In the dealer room I spotted this gorgeous wedding kimono that was hand-embroidered!

Then I ran into rvnclw75, jainamsolo, and remba24 as Leonard, Penny, and Wolowitz from Big Bang Theory. (All of them are female!) Amber had to literally use cocoa butter to get into the super skinny jeans – AND she was wearing a turtleneck dickey! Seriously, this made me so happy. They looked awesome!

Another funny sign. (The Sheraton ballroom was where the loooong registration line was.)

Here’s lordofhaladin, and remba24 in more Glee costumes – Kurt and Brittney!

I don’t remember if it was Saturday, but let’s go ahead and say it was. We tried to get into the big Firefly panel, but the line wrapped around the hotel. So we went to our room (and rajsmith, laughingmagpie, and darthed joined us) to watch it on TV. It was really really funny, especially because Nathan and Alan kept calling up.

Saturday we had dinner at Sear with a whole bunch of LJ folks – we had a couple different tables, but it was really fun.

After dinner, got Doug dressed in the Star Trek costume I’d made him for Halloween and Michelle and I got into our Lost jumpsuits. (I have more pics of Doug and the other Star Trek stuff on my other camera!)

Barf!

We headed over to the Sheraton (?) for the Star Trek world record. They were aiming to get a certain number of people in Star Trek costumes. We sent Doug up into the ballroom, and Michelle and I helped the Trek track lady direct traffic to the right place. Mel met us over there, and after we finished directing traffic, we sat and chatted and waited for our friends and Doug to be done with their world record stuff. We hung around the hotels and visited with friends and took pictures.

After a while, we went up to change, and then we ended up on 10, which has a great view of all the floors of people in costume:

And is a nice place to hang out, because you can hear people talk. Hanging out on 10 with my friends is one of my favorites parts of DragonCon.
