C2E2! *flail*

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 20, 2010, 7:06 PM

Please to forgive any incoherency, as I am still coming down from this past weekend.  Rather than compose a whole new entry, I'm borrowing heavily from my LJ:


- Rorschach's Journal, April 17th 2010 -

Second day of C2E2. Wandered Expo floor with Daniel for several hours. Stopped frequently by fans for photographs. Reciprocated with attendees in costume.

Attended panel on subversive comics presented by Comics Studies Conference. Panel's definition of "subversive" was distinctly academic - not quite what I expected, but not without interest. Despite sitting in back of room, suspect my presence may have made third panelist nervous. Title of his piece was "Watchmen Deconstructs Nothing". Was amusing.

Artist in Artists' Alley gifted me with printed likeness of myself. Must remember to return to her booth tomorrow to offer thanks.

Encountered a Nite Owl II, a Comedian, and two Silk Spectre IIs by chance. Daniel and I joined them for photos but found it difficult to separate from the group due to attention we attracted. Amusing, but tactical liability.

Interesting day, all told.


April 20th:

So, we took lots of pictures and even ended up with some that came out well enough to post.  xD  There were also about a zillion pics posted by others on C2E2's Flickr site, which should give a pretty good idea of what all was happening.

Here's our little photo gallery, with some pics of us and others:  (link)

Here are links to the other Watchmen cosplayers we encountered.  We only saw them briefly, partially because we knew if we came too near each other we'd be trapped posing for pictures indefinitely.  xD

We did manage to get one group shot, but it came out terribly blurry. :(  I'm hoping someone out there posts a pic of all of us (because gawd knows a zillion people out there took that picture!!)

We've been finding multiple postings of pictures that others took of us (which has made me squee mightily and in a most unbecoming manner).  The ones we've found so far are here:

Finally, some links to C2E2 photo galleries:

Isn't it just the coolest when you start finding pictures of yourself posted by absolute strangers??? I'm glad you both had fun. You looked amazing!

It is awesome being "Internet famous". :XD: I was so glad for the chance to improve my costume and wear it again, and having my other half in costume too just made it all the better! ^_^

That's like what happened to me and my friend.
We were dressed as Jedi, and standing next to Padme Amidala. We didn't get to move for about 20 minutes, haha :P

I would've loved to hang out with you. Might've gone a bit fangirly. :P

It was fun getting our pictures taken together, but once there was a break in the crowd we practically shouted "Run!"

Celebrity has its price. ;D

That would've been fun to hang out together - the more the merrier! :D

Haha! That's exactly what it it's like! And then people are stopping you as you run :P

More the merrier indeed. I'd have to try and create a Silk Spectre costume, haha.

That'd be awesome - although Rorschach didn't think much of Silk Spectre... :paranoid: She'd probably antagonize him terribly. :giggle:

eh heh heh. AWESOME. Sounds like my kinda character, haha! :P
