Calgary Comic Expo 2014

There is a reason why we buy a Weekend Pass to the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo.  It’s because we’re never quite sure when we’re going to get there.  Sure, it’s an expensive insurance policy, but it’s better than not being able to go because you didn’t buy a ticket for a specific day. Plus, we’ve had times when we have been energetic enough to make it more than one day in a row.

This year, we didn’t get there til Sunday.  Yes, Sunday.

We managed to keep our plans for Friday Night, however…

We both worked Thursday. This meant we were too tired to go anywhere on Friday. Saturday? We were on our way, but hit a huge pothole in a parking lot that necessitated a trip to the mechanic (the car is ok, surprisingly enough).

A weekend like this deserves a really big beer.

So. Sunday.

We saw stuff like this guy.

We parked the car at one of the stations, hopped a train, and snagged some lunch along the way. We spent most of our time in the Artist’s Alley / Merchandise Hall, mainly because that’s where our friends are.

We even went outside to enjoy some of the sunlight and fresh air.  And Vikings.

But mostly we were there to see our friends.  And this guy.

A Dalek called Dudley and gratuitous advertising for my friend Kyle

But mostly our friends. Maybe next year we’ll be a bit more on the ball, take a few extra photos.  For now, I’m just hoping to get through my next shift at work (So. Tired), and the Husbeast just wants the cold he contracted to go away (it’s not the Con Plague. Unless you consider him Patient Zero, in which case, mazel tov!)

Hope everyone had a good C2E2, and we’ll see what the next year brings.
