Our summer so far... continued...

Saturday we got to go to the Comic Con convention downtown San Diego. It was pretty rad. We got tickets through a friend who attends Gnoman which is the school that Dustin will be attending come September. It is a 3D animation trade school right smack-dab in the middle of Hollywood. So yes, we will be moving to Hollywood. Me, on the other hand, have decided to also go back to school. Scary, I know! I have been accepted to Pepperdine graduate school in west L.A. where I will be getting my Masters degree in elementary education. Crazy huh! Anyway, we will be moving from San diego in the next 3 weeks or so. It is going to be really really hard for me to leave this nice, peaceful and beautiful place and go to a traffic ridden and crazy place. It will definitely be an adventure!

Ok, back to Comic-Con. So, we got these tickets from a friend but the catch was that we had to pass out flyers for the school from 8-12. It was definitely worth it.

The day we went was the Costume contest so we got to see some pretty crazy costumes. There were also several celebrities there from Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) to Leonard Nimoy (Spock). The artwork was amazing and it was really fun to see the displays of Star Wars, Transformers, Harry Potter, D.C. comics and more.

Here are a few things we saw:

Dustin posing with Heman. Personnally, I think he looks like he is doing a John Travolta disco move but Heman works too. :)

This guy was one of my favorites!

Look! It's Jan from Grease! She was so cute and smiled for me and then she did "brush um, brush um, brush um."

Darth was pretty sweet even though I think his helmet was a little large for the rest of him.

Here he is... the man himself, Mark Hamill. I don't know who the other guy is. One had to pay $40 to get an atuograph or picture. I was content with this. I guess I could photoshop my way in there.

This giy was pretty good. He even had the curl. I asked him if I could be Lois Lane.

This one is for my sister Aimee. The Tick Aim! :) He is our favorite cartoon character. If you have not seen him you are seriously missing out!

Spock himself! I think both Dustin and I were surprised to see him with out pointy ears.

Ok, this was sad...

You won't get these princesses at Disneyland.

They had to hugest crowd of men with cameras around them. I think Dustin took about 15 pictures of them... hum. Sleeping beauty was probably the worst!

All in all, this was awesome! I think Dustin and I are going to go again next year but dress up. If anyone has any suggestions what we should do I am up for anything, excepting the costumes in the above photo... ;).
