Geeking Out: My Salt Lake Comic Con Experience

If you've never been to a Comic Con, you need to.
They are an amazing spectacle to behold.

I had my first experience at the Salt Lake Comic Con a few Saturdays ago.

And since it was my sister's birthday, we both dressed up for the event.
She went as Princess Bubblegum, and I went as a soldier.

I knew it'd be an action-packed, fun day, but it was even better than I'd expected.
Hoards of people, most of them wearing costumes.
Tons of booths for comic books, animators, and companies.
A whole lot of short films, celebrity panels, and movie star meet-and-greets. 

There was so much to see that we actually had to make the conscious decision to eat lunch.
And we didn't eat until mid-afternoon (because we forgot until then).

I could write quite a long post, but I think I'll let my pictures and quick captions do most of the talking.
Had to get a pic with Star Wars peeps
We totally thought this was the real actress from DS9
Hey, look! It's the Fonz!
An expert photo-bomb by the Doctor
The 501st Legion had some pretty impressive costumes and a great booth
Ah, good ol' Evil Dead the Musical
Dean Cain is such a good guy
He even gave my sis two birthday hugs!
Fun finding my friend Deena Marie in the main hall
And my talented artist friend Brandon Dayton was there, too
I'm so glad Megan's friend Carrie (dressed as Apple Jack from My Little Pony) joined up with us
It really was an incredible day, and I am already looking forward to next year.
Maybe I'll even put in more than a week's thought/work on my costume next time.

Did you go? What was your experience?
If you've been to multiple Comic Cons, I'd love to hear how they differed and which you liked most.
