New York Comic Con -- Sunday Recap
Mon Feb 9 2009
I admit: I made a grave miscalculation on the last day of the con. For the first time in my life, I decided to dress up in a costume. My choice: Miss Piggy, not only because, as I told WPLJ radio, "She is a hero to full-figured feminists everywhere," but because I had the costume lying around...since Halloween. Unfortunately, coming in costume meant that folks were taking photos of me, instead of the other way around. So I admit my last slide show is rather paltry. I also didn't get to one panel on Sunday. Who knew Miss Piggy was so popular! I was stopped every few feet, by both kids and adults, who wanted to pose with me. I hope everyone who went had as much fun as I did! I ended up buying my daughter a bunch of cool indie books (a Mermaid comic by the artist behind the Finding Nemo book; the '50s retro-looking Got Your Nose by Ragnar). We also picked up a good deal of swag, including a light-up Wonder Woman tiara. I'm almost sad the con is over...almost. Truthfully, I feel like I need a weekend to recover from my weekend!
