Dragon*Con 2012 Recap: Saturday

Guys!  I’m so sorry it is taking me forever to get these recaps done.  Here is what I have done since Dragon*Con:

Bridal shower in Charlotte (the actual wedding is this upcoming weekend).

CENTERFEST and all the insanity at work that it necessitated.

Rosh Hashana (which involved traveling to be with my family…Yom Kippur is this week but I’m not traveling for it).

–A wedding in Boston.

So it has been pretty intense and busy in the life of Lindsay this September, as you can imagine, and it hasn’t left me much time for involved blogging, I apologize!

And these have been my Saturdays since Dragon*Con:

–Bridal shower in Charlotte (so Southern!)

CENTERFEST.

–Wedding in Boston (I’ll post about that sometime soon, likely in October).

Pretty different from a Saturday at Dragon*Con, am I right?

So above are a few shots from the Game of Thrones shoot that occurred right after the Dragon*Con parade.  I marched in the parade last year, but I decided to sit out this year because heat, early, costumes, heat, etc.  Not a decision I regret, although marching in the parade is fun and I suggest everyone do it at least once during their Dragon*Con lifetime, because it is a worthwhile experience.  Still.  Hot.

Anyways, I missed most of the photo shoot, but I got a few shots, and it allowed me to get into my Melisandre costume for the first time:

For the night is dark and full of me!!!  I LOVED this costume and am so thrilled at how well it turned out!  (Here are a few more photos just in case you wanted to see them!)

These photos were taken at the Hilton around lunch time, so afterward Jon and I navigated to the Peachtree Food Court for lunch.  Or, we tried to.  The crowds, y’all!  The crowds!  The crowds at Saturday around noon in the Hilton and Marriott were unlike anything I had ever seen, and I was just miserable, because every time someone bumped into me, the giant neck piece I was wearing would stab into my neck.  I usually have at least one moment at Dragon*Con when the crowds combined with whatever insane costume I am wearing become too much and I sort of go into uber-bitch mode.  So, just assume I wasn’t a happy camper for awhile…I got over it eventually, I promise, but it did involve taking off the necklace at one point.

Anyways, here are some pictures taken from before and after the insanity.

Buttercup and Wesley in the food court.

Legend of Zelda group.

Two Melisandres and a Sansa!  I love that she did the seated horseback Melisandre.

Beauty and the Beast group.

Jayne-style Disney Princesses, so clever!

Aaaaand zombie Disney princesses!
