Professional WHAT? I am tempted to write in “ditch digger” or “zombie stalker” on my name tag. I wouldn’t be the first. So as soon as the kid wakes up we get to head back down for another day of becoming so exhausted we sleep in until 10am the next morning. It’s a vicious cycle, but someone’s got to do it!
So today is the BIG day, in terms of people being at the Con who don’t have to go after work…it’s crazy busy and jam packed with more panels, events and special stuff that you will have to wait in line for hours for, unless you can bribe somebody to let you cut in (have cold hard cash…) Just kidding, you don’t want to do that, but look today for panels on The Future of Xbox Gaming, Fanfiction Fan Panel, Comic Book Art Fundamentals, DC Comics Batman Year Zero, Disney Comic Creation Workshop, Graphic Novels from Idea to Finish, Creating an Animated Series, and so much more. Show panels and events will feature ONCE UPON A TIME, AMERICAN DAD, FAMILY GUY, TRUE BLOOD, ARROW, BEING HUMAN, WAREHOUSE 13 and some special previews from Warner Bros, Lionsgate, Legendary Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Science Channel…Once again, you will have to pick and choose because a lot of stuff happens at the same time.
Tonights BIG event is the HBO Presents COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL MASQUERADE BALL AND PARTY. Oh man, the freaks and geeks will be out in FULL FORCE tonight…this is the PARTY EVENT of the entire weekend. Do you have your costume ready?
We’ll be spending time today at two adjoining hotels where they have entire sections devoted to gaming. Oh yeah, I’m the mom of a 12-year-old boy, come on. He’d rather game than check out the booth babes! The nearby Manchester Grand Hyatt will have the XBOX LOUNGE up and running today and tomorrow, where kids and adults can go crazy gaming hands on and seeing previews of killer upcoming titles like Halo, Ryse, Fable and World of Tanks…
At the Marriott Marquis Hotel next to Hall A, you can find the NINTENDO GAMING LOUNGE where you can make yourself silly over the huge space devoted to all things Nintendo.
I hope they have lots of bathrooms and Starbucks…and a place for moms to sit and rest their fannies…
Until later, gators. The Con Be On!!!!
