So after many fun times and shenanigans that lasted late into Saturday night (Sunday morning, technically) we didn’t really get out of the room until noon. I once again donned my Blind Mag costume. Jon and Marc went costume-less. Oh, I forgot to tell a quick Jon zombie story. We had a professional makeup artist across the hall from us who I ran into on Friday when I was getting dressed. She popped into our room to borrow my tweezers and ended up adding all those gross vein details to Jon’s zombie look with my navy eyeliner. So, new zombie makeup trick for Jon! She also complimented me on my makeup which pleased me to no end.
Anyways that was Friday, but back to Sunday.
So we hustled out a little before noon to go to a panel for Being Human, SyFy’s new hit show based on the BBC series of the same name. I started watching the show about a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost all sharing a house earlier this year and found it to be a far better show than I expected. All three of the leads were on hand for the panel and it was great to see that they legitimately liked each other. We arrived a little late to the panel but an enjoyable time was still had. Especially when the actors started tearing up the stage to demonstrate that they were, indeed, having a fun time at Dragon*Con.
Then, you know, the lunch thing happened. I realize we only did four panels all weekend; usually I’m fairly panel-heavy at Dragon*Con, but this year with the parade and the photo shoots I just found myself re-prioritizing. We have luckily seen all the Starfleet Captains in person (minus the guy from Enterprise, who doesn’t count) and we’ve hit a lot of the shows and casts we’ve wanted to in the past, so we didn’t feel like we missed out this year. I still got my Con on, just in a slightly different way.
