The convention: Rose City Comic Con
The place: Oregon Convention Center
The dates 7 – 9 September.
Sorry for the long delay but due to leaning a new job I have not had the time to put a full report. Also since I do not se much interest I going the keep things short. All three of my Plushies were my companions for the con.
I missed out on Friday due to end of quarter and trying to keep up with the work load. I got in late on Saturday due to the long line to get in. I missed The Doctor is in with David Tennant, but instead when to one of Dr Erin Macdonald panel on time travel. She did three panels during the convention. Sunday Caity Lotz (White Canary), and Brandon Routh the Atom from Legends of Tomorrow were my obligatory celebrity panel.
The Good: any panel by Dr Erin Macdonald. Take one scientist, add a Trekie and a lot of Girl Geek power and you have a recipe for some interesting science and fandom panels.
The worst: The entry line on Saturday. If you know you are going to have 15K plus attendees, perhaps you should have more than one entry point.
One thing I have to say about the celebrity events. One complaint I had was how celerity panels tend to be nothing more than celebrity porn: see the celebrity ask a dumb question and buy a autograph. This year the celebrities seem to try to make the panels more entertaining and engaging.
Overall I had a great time. Note photos are by creative common license share them but do no change them, sell them or them in a derogatory manner.
