The Comic Con Photographs

The crowds outside the Convention Center.

I spent the afternoon creating an album of the Comic Con photos for 2014.  If you go to Mage Bailey’s Facebook page, click on “photos” then Albums, you will find all the images in one album listed by day.

I truly enjoy the inventive costumes as much as I enjoy the artists. I hope you enjoy them too.

  • Himself:  Worked his own job and began his own album.
  • Herself:  Think I should delete the 2013 and 2013 albums.
  • Reading:  "A Civil Campaign."
  • Balance:  Too much heat and humidity and photographs for balance, but today will be better.

    Home with a Smile

    We had a lot of fun this Comic Con, and the high light of it all for me was to see the “Boxtroll” panel in Hall H.  I give you the advance report that it’s wonderful.  We were charmed.  The rest of the Con passed me by in a tired blur.

    Sunday was a bit better…we brought Margot and Zoe to their first Comic Con.  Margot seemed to love it all, but Zoe reacted uncomfortably.  We fled home by twoish, took an hours nap, and we were able to face the evening crush at our meeting with aplomb.  At least I didn’t fall asleep or snore. 

    Life is back to normal today.  The house is a total mess….we dropped things where we stood.  I have a thousand photographs to look at, but the house cleanup comes first.

    A Glimpse of Friday's Comic Con


  • Himself:  Commented that this was the first year we attended more panels than we spent time on the floor.  Loved the Firefly video panel.  Costume day today.

  • Herself:  This is also the first year that we have attended different panels on different subjects.  Tho we are both involved in Steampunk, I am not interested in the latest video games.  Costuming for the Hall and for the Masquerade interested me.  Cosplay they called it.  Got to see Preston for a short visit.  Today Steampunk meetup at noon.

  • Reading:  Finished “Memory” this morning and will take “Komar with me to keep me amused in the long line for Hall H.  Preview of Nephews latest movie there at 2.

  • Balance:  Dinner out at Donovan’s.  What a calming treat in the middle of Comic Con Chaos.
