Batman: Batdance

I now need an excuse to take my lightsaber somewhere

Ah, Armageddon. Featuring cosplays, comics, creepy dudes who come up and tell you that you are "cute", and my old arch-nemesis: Long slow autograph queues.

But it was a reasonably fun way to waste a day. Got some signed DVD covers from Steve Blum (Cowboy Bebop) and Kyle Herbert (TTGL), and some signed cards from Kevin Conroy, aka. voice of DCAU Batman.

Because what would a convention be without gratuitous Batman?

I went to the panels from Robert Picardo, who's entry consisted of signing an opera about Star Trek (as one does...) and Louise Jameson, so got some sci-fi behind the scenes goss, which is always worth a laugh.

And then I bought some new manga to read (Afterschool Charisma, aka. School for Clones with background conspiracy, featuring marriage-obsessed Elizabeth 1, Gino-expy Napoleon, kinda-gay Einstein and moe Hitler. Yes, really.)

Plus, I now have a lightsaber! Or to be more precise, a Light Sword, the non-copyright infringing cheaper alternative. Because that is what one does.

Didn't really see anyone I knew there, aside from some faces I recognise from past conventions.

And now I am tired, so there will probably be sleep soon.
