Are you noticing that my posts are getting less and less wordy? Man, only halfway through, and I'm pooped!
Well, here's the second batch from day 2:
I think this is actually a costume, but it looked pretty funny trussed up on the floor.
Oh, and I
caught up with steampunk Boba again today!
Really nice guy. When we asked him if he does other steampunk stuff, he rattled off a whole list of conventions and events all over the U.S., including Steam Con (?), which apparently is held in November in Seattle. John's eyes lit up, and he announced that we're going. (We've been wanting to visit Seattle again since the first book tour, when we only got to stay for a grand total of 13 hours.) So...um...I guess we're going to Seattle this November?
Anyway, here's a close-up of his helmet and arm brace:
Off the main floor of the con is the Droid room, which is full of cool photo vignettes and, of course, droids:
They're also lining all the walls - this was just the center area.
And the best part? They're all fan-made. Every single one!
This nasty little guy keeps an eye on things:
And another awesome vignette:
In another room there are lots of costumed mannequins displayed:
Friday the 13th was a super late day for us, so we only caught the last few hours of the con. Surprisingly, the crowds were about the same as Thursday, and there weren't as many people in costume. I still found some doozies, though:
This guy was scarier, though:
The emperor here was creepily polite, if such a thing is possible.
I'm not sure the guy behind him is buying it, though.
Well, um...There's that.
This will give you an idea of the size of the main floor:
This was taken from the second floor overlook. The big open area on the floor is the divide between the food court and all the merchandise aisles.
And speaking of Leia, check out these perfect buns!
That's her real hair! Awesome.
It was especially cold in the hall today, which resulted in at least one slave Leia in a sweatshirt:
Pimp Vader & Fett from Comic Con were even here:
I've been having way too much fun mentally filling in thought bubbles on these next ones:
Then there's this adorable little Wookiee:
And speaking of cuteness, I've been able to resist spending money on everything so far except Katie Cook's original art cards (well, and that Lando shirt. I finally caved.)
Stay tuned for Part 2!

More Star Wars goodness, comin' right up!
And since my first post didn't have any sexiness, I'm going to overcompensate and start you off with a little slave Leia action here:
See how the Leia on the right is *totally* making eyes at me? Yep. I know a girl crush when I see one - that's all I'm saying. And right in front of John, even! *tsk tsk*
And in case you were wondering, here's a close-up so you can see that, yes, the blonde's boobies really are popping out of her bra:
Sometimes it's hard to tell which are people and which are mannequins.
Well, until one of the "mannequins" moves, that is.
This Jawa got me a few times:
A bevy of bounty hunters.

Hey, look! Non-licensed Disney characters!
There's gotta be one at every con:
Someone called this girl "Booba Fett."
This kid was great:
The details on his costume were really well made - and he wore sunglasses under the mask to make the eyes black and shiny. Clever!
One of the stranger sights of the day:
I'm assuming she was recreating the Luke-in-the-Tauntaun scene? The head was eerily realistic: the eyes even blinked. When we came back a few hours later the whole thing was gone, though.
Lots of R2's around:
The kid in the background is the operator.
This lovely lady got a lot of attention:
I think it might have had something to do with the rear view, though:
Oh, and that brings me to the famous Wampa gal:
And finally, my favorite of the day:
