It's going to take at least two more long posts to get all of today's photos up, but let's start with a few sure-fire crowd-pleasers: the kids.
This little Quorra from Tron actually won the children's division in the costume contest:
Now brace yourself, 'cuz from here on out it's going to be completely AWWWW-full.
During the Trek panel, John grabbed my camera and took a few zoom pics - I assumed of the actors on stage. Turns out I was wrong; he was actually photographing this little beauty:
And the best part? She was wearing a pink Supergirl onesie.
Then she noticed the audience:
And finally, you know I saved the best for last. ;)
For every geek girl out there who was disappointed to learn the little Darth Vader in the VW commercial was a boy, this one's for you:
More costume photos coming soon!

Let's get right to it; there will be plenty more tomorrow and Sunday.
These next two were soooo pretty:
Definitely the most beautiful couple there today. Sorry I couldn't fit the whole dress in the shot; it was super big and poofy.
Out front was this guy and his replica Time Machine:
This guy was so enthusiastically polite when I asked to take his picture ("SURE!") that John and I couldn't stop giggling. I just love people at cons.
I have a soft spot for cyberpunk and rainbow goths, so these two made me grin:
The one on the left recognized us, too. Not from online, though; she just happens to be our favorite cashier at JoAnn's. Which I guess tells you how often we shop at JoAnn's. Ha!
I was browsing one semi-crowded aisle when I spotted these two, cracked up, and begged for a picture:
Plants vs Zombies!! Check out that zombie costume, guys: PERFECTION. And crazy Dave with the pot helmet? C'mon. It just doesn't get much better than that.
It's hard to see in this picture, but she had flesh-toned scar makeup all over her face, which looked fantastic.
I had to do a double-take to make sure that suit wasn't body paint. John, meanwhile, was doing triple and quadruple takes, just to be reeelly sure.
This Big Daddy had a working drill arm:
I liked this lady Link so much I chased her down to get a full-length shot:
I'm not sure how you even begin to make a Master Chief costume, so I'm always impressed when I see one:
Oh, and of course you can't have a con without a Pimp Vader showing up:
And finally, my last shot of the day - which would also be my favorite, if it hadn't turned out so *$%#! blurry:
I caught these guys just as they were coming off the escalators. They immediately jumped into this pose for me like old pros. Love. It. So. Much. Curse you, blurriness! CURSE YOU.
We go back tomorrow for more, so stay tuned for rounds two and three!
John and I are going to Megacon today! In fact, we should be there every afternoon this weekend, so if you live in Orlando and are planning on going, be sure to find us and say hi. (Message me on Twitter if you can't find us.) And for those of you who can't make it: Don't worry; I promise to have lots of photos for you next week. :D

I only paint my nails a few times a year at most, but that doesn't stop me from a) amassing a whole drawer of rainbow colored polish, and b) drooling over photos like this:
Perfect for grammar geeks, literature lovers, graphic designers - you name it.
Also, imagine this with lines of binary (all ones and zeroes). Wouldn't that be awesome?
So now I just have to find a newspaper that prints in binary. Hm...
What's the coolest nail art you've ever seen, guys?

If you haven't seen Nick Pitera's new Disney medley yet, then get ready to have a big ol' pixie-dust sprinkled grin on your face for the next eight and a half minutes:
You may have seen Nick sing before; the viral video of him singing Aladdin's "Whole New World" was everywhere at one time. If you *haven't* heard him before, though, then "be prepared" [heh] for a bit of a shock. And let me assure you: yes, that's really him singing. All of it. Honest.
For more, be sure to check out Nick's Youtube channel. Oh, and if you love Wicked as much as I do, don't miss Nick's version of "For Good" with Sam Tsui!

And finally, little Clay here munching on some grapes did me in:
But that's IT.

Ahh, it does my heart good to see fellow geeks getting married - and here in my home state of Florida, no less! Of course, my nefarious plan to actually be invited to one of these geeky cool weddings has yet to be realized, but for now I guess I can settle for awesome pictures.
So first, Christy and Michael had a Calvin & Hobbes-inspired engagement shoot, which was genius:
Then, for their actual wedding, they included these fabulous geeky details:
(Mark my words: The second I get my own Deloreon time machine, I am going back in time and wearing knee socks and Chucks with my wedding dress. Pinky swear.)
And one more geeky detail you're going to love: after their traditional vows were complete, Michael and Christy had the officiant include a special "in the event of the Zombie Apocalypse..." set of vows. Yes, really.
Hey, Christy? Michael? I just want you to know: I make a mean batch of chocolate chip cupcakes. And we own the really *nice* DDR mats. Plus we make excellent Disney tour guides. So, uh....be our friends? Please?
All photos courtesy of Root Photography (hit the link to see more!), and a big thanks to Diane C. for this fabulous find.
