Friday at Dragon*Con 2011, Blood and Chrome

Friday at Dragon*Con is always exciting because everything feels fresh and new and full of possibility and your feet don’t hurt yet and it is great.  We slept in a bit because there weren’t any early panels we were dying to see and so were able to get right into costume and venture into the world as fully formed cosplayers!  Jon attempted his first zombie look, including latex and stage blood, and I garbed myself in a Blind Mag costume that left me 100% satisfied and happy.  Our first panel was in the Sheraton, where we were staying, so we were able to rush downstairs and walk right into a session about The Guild (GUYYYYSS NEIL GAIMAN WAS ON IT THIS WEEK WHAT), with the actors Amy Okuda, Robin Thorsen and Wil Wheaton.  Actually I meant to say Wil Wheaton!!!!!!! WESLEY CRUSHER GUYS COME ON.   Anyways, if you don’t watch The Guild you really should, I wrote about it awhile ago.

So the panel was fun and Wil Wheaton is awesome but I was really distracted by this one and a half year old adorable girl dressed as a Nyan Cat.  This is what a Nyan Cat is:

(Ungh, I just spent ten minutes watching all the Nyan Cat video varieties, like the Russian one with his little Vodka bottle, and the smooth jazz one, guys, the internet, seriously).

And this is the adorable child dressed as a Nyan Cat:

Is that not top five most adorable things ever?  It was difficult for me to get a non-blurry shot because, as her mother said, she’s like the Nyan Cat, she never stops moving!

So after The Guild panel we went to the trusty Peachtree Food Court to get some lunch.  And we were stopped lots of times for photographs y’all!  How awesome is that.  You can view one of my favorite ones here.  Seriously, how awesome do we look?  Oh, this photograph also happened:
