PICTURE POST: CON FAVORITES PART II
I picked out some of my favorite photos from CONvergence and promptly transferred my phone pictures to my laptop. Anyway, let’s talk about one of my favorite photos — Dr. Horrible. Um, you’ve NEVER heard of Dr. Horrible? Oh dear friend, you’re missing out on quality entertainment. Neil Patrick Harris is brilliant. And I became a huge fan of Felicia Day. And Nathan Fillion is still amazing. And Joss Whedon is a flippin’ genius. Google Dr. Horrible and you can thank me later.
Futurama is one of Charlie’s all-time favorite shows, and he introduced me to it when we first started dating. So, I was pretty excited when I recognized these two characters — Zapp Brannigan and Leela — from the show. And I would like to know where Zapp got a stuffed Kif doll. I’m also kicking myself a little for not snapping a picture of Scruffy, the janitor. I think I could pull off a Leela cos (that’s costume for short). And I’d be willing to color my hair purple for the sake of the character.
As soon as I recognized Dr. Krieger and his holographic girlfriend across a super large waiting area of the convention, I immediately chased them down and yelled out, “Dr. Krieger!” Yup, I’m a nerd. I seriously squealed with delight when they granted my wish for a photo. If and when Charlie and I attend another con, we will seriously consider dressing as Dr. Kreiger and his holographic girlfriend.
