SDCC Twitter Round-up

I made it back alive! Are you surprised? I am. My very first San Diego Comic Con was a HUGE success and entirely too much fun for one person.

I’m still decompressing. I almost missed my flight home last night and I’ve brought tons of SDCC germs home with me so I’m not feeling all that well. I’ve still got a bunch of writing to do for Comic Book Resources but my first day report is already posted if you want to check it out: The Nerdy Bird’s First Flight to CCI – Part 1

I know everyone was dying to see my Red Lantern costume so here’s the first shot to satiate you. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I’ll go into more detail in another post about how I put it all together but I just have to say, Dex-Starr totally stole the spotlight from me!
(EDIT: Part 2 is now up! See my full Red Lantern costume)

In the meantime, I’m going to post all my SDCC tweets here for you guys to read. I saw a few other people do something like this and it seemed like a good idea since not all of you are on Twitter and might not have been following along. Here they are and keep checking back at CBR for the rest of my con reports! They are in reverse order so start at the bottom and work your way back up:

  1. Thanks Ken!

    Superduperman, you bet! It's even exhausting sitting down!! I have to say the SD center looks much larger than the Javits but maybe thats because its very long and the Javits is more squared up. And yeah, the entire thing is used plus some of the surrounding hotel space as well.

    Thanks Curt! You must have an awesome wife. :)

    Nice, I know! I can't believe this was my first time there. Why did I wait so long? As far as a cape and colors for Supes. I agree with you. I didn't like the look they gave Black Canary either.

    Thanks wik, Milad and Chovengo!

  2. CHOVENGO says:

    Congrats , it is so cool , u had a lot of fun ^_^

  3. just became a follower, i had no idea who you were, but reading through CBR and i went BOOM! and that slogan of yours : has boobs reads comics… awesome! it's totally cool to see some one like you do this and put such amazing effort on it. thank you. you rock.

  4. wik says:

    Dex-Starr! and Geoff Johns :)
    wheee!!!! :D

  5. Nick says:

    So many tweets, so little time! I can't believe I've still never been to San Diego. Have to try to catch next year's Comic-Con.

    By the way, what do you think of my blog post today: "Superman Needs a Cape — Even on Smallville!"

  6. Curt Russell says:

    Hey great costume, I started remembering all of the cons I've too. Also my Green Lantern costume (met my wife while wearing that). Glad you had a great time

  7. Superduperman says:

    Glad you made it back home in one piece. I bet it's one of the few times you'll glad had a scooter to ride around in huh? Even viewing the pictures and content online was sensory overload! Very overwhelming the amount of info and pictures flowing out of the con. You mentioned and I'm curious as in… how large is the convention center anyway? The SD convention center is listed at exhibition per square feet is similar in size to the NY's Javit's center. How many halls are used for the con? I'm assuming all of it judging by the size of it.

  8. Ken says:

    Great stuff Jill, enjoyed the article on CBR too.
