I'm still working on my recap of the Miami Comic-Con, guys, but I had to share my favorite shot right away:
John and I happened upon this little Cinderella solemnly flipping through the pages of a book and showing them all to R2D2, who was responding enthusiastically with beeps and whirs. The few adults around were standing back to avoid disturbing the pair. After grinning madly at the cuteness for a moment, I silently asked her father (just behind her and out of frame) if I could take a picture. Then, when I quietly went down on one knee a few feet away, the little girl turned to look at me for just this one second before returning studiously to her task.
It was only after I downloaded the photos at home that I spotted Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar of Star Trek: TNG) in the background. And you know what? This is exactly why I love conventions. Where else can you find actors and fans, sci-fi and fantasy, and kids and adults all mashed together in one glorious melting pot of geekery?
More pics and goodies, coming soon!
