Are we doing Count Down to Comic-Con again? You're darn rights we are!
Some of you might remember last summer we were gearing up for the first ever Brandon Comic-Con, and how the rug was unceremoniously yanked out from under us quite close to the time and we were all bitterly disappointed. It was rough.
Things are happening again! The as-of-yet-unnamed convention (entries for the 'name the con' contest just closed the other day, in fact) is coming to Brandon this October! This time, the event is being organized and overseen by a local group rather than from outside and they have promised no last-minute heartbreak.
This is a big deal for us, guys. This is a convention half the distance from us than the last one we attended, for one thing. For another, we'll actually know people there (most likely). Other Half grew up there and I lived there through University and for a number of years after. We'll have friends there, hell, maybe I can even convince my sister to come out as well. Regina was so much fun but we knew exactly zero people there, so it'll be awesome to have that extra dynamic. And we will be there both days.
Our costume plans aren't 100% finalized, but this is what we have so far:
-Me: Diablo III Barbarian and Valkyrie Frigga
-Other Half: undecided, but has some really cool ideas
-Elder Spawn: Diablo III Deckard Cain and Live Aid Freddie Mercury
-Younger Spawn: New version She-Ra (she only wants to come for one day)
So here we go again!
