Comic Con! (No, not that one)

So I can't afford airfare and tickets and hotel accommodations to go to the San Diego Comic Con. Bummer.

BUT! There's one in Chicago in a couple of weeks! I drive there at least once a year to visit family (as evidenced by this post), so it's do-able. Therefore, we're coming to the Windy City!

Even more exciting, some cartoon big wigs will be there! I applied for my very first press credentials, so hopefully I will have the opportunity to ask these guys some questions about their jobs. How fun!

(from the Wizard World site)

Of course, I also get to feed my geeky side... Peter Mayhew (aka Chewbacca), Jeremy Bulloch (aka Boba Fett), Stan Lee, Lou Ferrigno, William Shatner, Laura Vandervoot (aka Lisa from V), James Hong, Dean Cain, Joey Lawrence (okay, so he's not a geek icon, just a hottie), Scott Bakula, Colin Ferguson (also from V), Kevin Sorbo.... the list goes on and on and my geek heart swells!

I haven't yet decided if I'm going to do any sort of cosplay or just show off my geeky t-shirt collection, but I am almost positive I'm dressing TV Boy up as Link from Zelda for the children's costume contest. So if you happen to come and see a tiny Link running around, that's probably me. Say hi!

Chi-town, see you soon!
