Going to my first sci fi/fantasy/geek convention. I may enter the costume contest on Saturday night, and I'm entering an 'embellished bra' contest (hopefully -- have to turn it in tonight and it's not quite
done!) -- luckily I won't have to wear it.
They have some kid activities, too, so I'll be bringing DS with on Sunday when they also have a BBQ. But mostly, it's a mostly ME weekend.
I'm hoping to meet some fun new friends.
ETA: I realized this same convention marks a milestone for me. Last year, STBXH broke a date with me to photograph the costume contest...made a deal to come right back home if it was lame...and instead went out with friends, got high and stayed out til 4 a.m. His mom was visiting from out of state then, too. I woke up Memorial Day morning and told him that was it. I was done. Whoever found a place first was moving out. That was me.
So, it's sort of like Independence Day weekend for me, too!
