  • got a signed copy of Nichelle Nichols’ autobiography
  • spent $600 on car repairs
  • joined the Sylvester McCoy Q&A conga line
  • cosplayed Ace McShane
  • shared a gin bucket with my sister
  • Learned that Jim Steranko dresses exactly like a Jim Steranko character, and has done so for decades without alteration
  • succumbed to my weakness for reasonably priced antique textiles
  • got sketches for the World’s Tiniest Sketchbook
  • saw Kermit the Frog IN PERSON OMG
  • photographed an engagement, which was kind of startling

Some things I did not do at Dragoncon:

  • Sleep, much
  • Buy as many prints as I wanted to
  • Get a good picture of myself pretending to beat up a Dalek
  • Heckle Larry Correia’s panels, despite great temptation (it would have been SO SATISFYING to lurk in the back row and yell “Your nominees are bad and you should feel bad!” but I was strong)

(oh and re: the engagement thing: I was waiting by the TARDIS in the Sheraton to take pictures with a Seven cosplayer, and a dude dressed as Nine came up to me and asked if I would take a picture of him and his girlfriend (dressed as Oswin, in the red dress and tool belt) posing with the TARDIS. I said yes. She got in the TARDIS and shut the door. He got down on one knee and pulled out a ring. I went HOLY SHIT WHAT and started taking as many pictures as I could, as fast as I could.
Hopefully, they turned out okay, and forty years from now their grandchildren will not have to ask “Grandma, why are your engagement photos so shitty?” and be told it was because Grandpa asked a total stranger to document their precious and irreproducible moment with no warning.)

(and if those engagement photos turn up anywhere on the Internet, can someone link me to them?)

Oh shit, surprise proposal, what!?! It sounds like you did pretty great. I would probably have dropped the phone or something. So much responsibility!

(Omg, what if she said no, or cried and went back in the TARDIS or something? Why do people not think of this?)

I didn't sleep much at Dragon*Con, too!

I didn't buy stuff, though. Only a handful of dice and a couple autographed 8x10s.
