I’ve finished my Conquest for Phoenix Comicon! I’m impatiently counting down the next six days, along with my husband and all the other Comicon fans in Phoenix.
What a wonderful selection of classes we have to choose from this year! Some of the classes I’m most excited for are:
- Steampunk and the rest of the world
- How Evil Should they Be? Villains and Anti-heroes
- Attacking the 9 Senses
- Airships: Creating Steampunk Technology that Flies
- Technology for Authors
- Dramatic Warfare
And of course, I can’t wait to attend the Steampunk Homecoming Ball benefiting Kids Need to Read, Evening Erotica with Gini Koch, and take a photo with Karl Urban!
To me, Comicon really feels like Christmas for adults. It’s a time to let our inner children come out and play. We can dress up, play with props, take crazy photos, pursue our wacky sci-fi hobbies, and meet other like-minded people who don’t think that questions about efficient steam propulsion are strange.
There are a million ways to enjoy yourself if you are a science fiction fan – and let’s face it, if you are reading this blog, you are a science fiction fan. Whether you attend classes, watch spectator sports like jousting or light saber battles, go to the auditorium to see the spotlights on famous actors or artists, or just come along to be part of the fun, I would encourage you to take at least one day to attend your local Comicon each year.
Just think of it as sanity maintenance! It will prepare you for the other 364 days this year when you have to try to fit in with all the people who think that watching reality TV is a stimulating form of entertainment. 😉
