It's been a few weeks since Comic-Con in San Diego but honestly, the dust is just now kind of settling for me and so I'm finally adding some blog entries about it.
This was not my first outing to a "Con" but it was my first trip to the grand daddy of them all. So one of my first considerations was making sure my geek cred was intact. And that starts with the difficult task of choosing what T-Shirts to pack. I remember Gus Lopez, super collector and creator of The Star Wars Collector's Archive, telling me about going to a general fantasy/scifi Con and debating whether or not to wear a Star Wars shirt. Was that too geeky? Perhaps he shouldn't wear anything sci fi... well, as it turned out, it really didn't matter because, as he put it, at this particular convention "the people dressed as the Borg were about the most normal looking ones there!" (I think there was a huge S&M / LARP contingent at the Con he was talking about, so the costuming was pretty outrageous.
