The convention staff was great and I should note that they had the most well organized parking lot of any convention held in a community space I've ever attended. Little details like that can make or break a show and this one was definitely made. I can't wait to see what they do next year!
I premiered a new cosplay for this convention - Slade Wilson from Arrow. Admittedly, a nice suit and an eye-patch isn't the most complex costume... even if you can dress it up a decent impression of Manu Bennet's voice and accent. But I'm quite pleased with the result if for no other reason than I think I totally rock a nice suit and eye-patch.
Manu Bennett agreed, for what that's worth. I got an autographed picture with a nice dedication.
After that, I wander around a bit and said hello to some friends who were also there while taking pictures of the cosplayers and posing for a few myself. I helped Terry Parr of ShoNuff Studios take down his booth, as he decided to leave early due to not feeling well. And I checked in with Michael Champion, as he was in the midst of a new work that I won't spoil but will say looked amazing.
And speaking of looking amazing, time for some cosplay photography!

Lady Annaka Vader as The Sorceress from Masters of the Universe.
The littlest Sith. Somehow, I think she joined The Dark Side for more than cookies.
Lyndsey Elaine as The White Rabbit. The Batman villain. Not the Spider-Man villain.
Glitzy Geek Girl as Black Cat. This was her first time as a featured guest and her first time running her own table. She deserves the success, being one of the best cosplayers I know. Congrats, Anna!
