The SpaceGypsies are anxiously awaiting Dragon*Con 2010. There’s really nothing quite like it! Since two of us were newbies to the Dragon*Con wonder last year, I thought it would be great to give you a Dragon*Con 2009 Top 10!
#10. Since it was my first big Con… I got my first real look at Steampunk costumes… awesome!
#9. The Walk of Fame. Autographs, chatting (Like walking up and chatting with Virginia Hey (Zhann – Farscape)
#8. The Walk of Fame. Face to face with favorite characters of favorite shows. I actually, literally, accidentally bumped into Ron Glass (Shepard Book-Firefly).
#7. Sitting in lines where you can watch the sights abound in front of you and chat with other fans waiting for their favorite panel which happens to be yours also.
#6. By the fifth Jayne Hat I was in awe of the magnitude of fandom!
#5. The Walk of Fame. That Ben Browder smile? Oh yeah, it’s real! And Claudia Black… omg, she is such a sweetheart. And Jason Momoa…er…my gods he’s…something else.
#4. Seeing certain SpaceGypsies in costume… one as Farscape’s DRD ‘One Eye’ and one as ‘1812’.
#3. Standing in the hall and being nudged by another SpaceGypsy who said….”Look!” It was Patrick Stewart walking less than three feet in front of me!
#2. Interviewing Claudia Black… and having Ben Browder drop by! Priceless…literally priceless.
#1. Walking outside with Claudia Black and chatting one on one about incense (her favorite is Nagchampa), Montessori School vs Waldorf School education and our basic views of life.
