Oh my goodness, Emerald City Comiccon (ECCC) was an absolute blast! We met some cool people, I came out of my shell a little bitty bit, I got lots of photos, a few videos, and a TON of swag. My husband and I also got to do a few touristy things while we were in Seattle outside of the convention. All in all, I'd say we celebrated our sixth anniversary in style.
We are flying back home today, and losing two hours in the process because of the time change (joy). I am looking forward to seeing my daughter again, I can tell you that. I know she is going to look like she has grown exponentially since we left, sigh. I am going to split up my recap of the convention into a few posts for you (partly because one entry would be MASSIVE, which I don't have the time for at the moment, and partly because my laptop doesn't like the video format my camera uses and I also have a few photos I need to scan so I can post, so there are some things I can't share with you until I am at home anyway).
Today, we'll focus on webcomics. I got to meet everyone I was hoping to meet, and picked up quite a few books and other merchandise. (Yay!) I even picked up a book for a new comic that I hadn't heard of but that looked really interesting, as well as cards for several other potential new series to check out. I will let you know more about those if I enjoy them! I was really impressed by all of the webcomic artists represented at the show, I can see why this convention is one of the favorites of the folks I read. Everyone I met and talked to was really nice. We got quite a few groovy sketches, and I even managed to get photos with my top three (well, four, technically).

Also, I got oodles of compliments on my Pony shirt that day, which was really nice, and it let me point a few people towards the LFG/LICD/TG booth.

Since one of my major goals for the convention was to get to meet/get photos with/get sketches from my favorite webcomic artists, on that note alone, I think we can call the weekend a rousing success. Of course, there were many, many other awesome moments throughout the weekend, and I'll go into some of those tomorrow.
(Brief aside: Yes, Stargate Universe starts up again tonight, yay! Though, grr, why did they move it to Mondays? Sigh. I probably won't get to watch it tonight because we will be getting in from our trip right around when it airs. I will do my episode recap/review later in the week though, I just ask for a little patience on that front. Regular Stargate blogging (now on Tuesdays) will pick up next week.)
To close today, I thought I'd show you all of the swag my hubby and I picked up at the convention:
