Unless you are staying at the DoubleTree Hotel just across from Universal Studios be prepared to walk a LONG way from your parking to the convention location. Fortunately the convention provided a shuttle (for $2). We three chose to take the shuttle.
It was a good choice. Much time was saved.
Now, I chose to wear my casual Winter Soldier outfit and got about 5 people who recognized it and complimented me on it. Which was cool, you know, it is a more subtle cosplay and I do feel like a badass wearing it.
HOWEVER, my friend who wore her Star Wars Dress got approximately 7 billion compliments; yes, every single person on Earth complemented her on her dress. Oh, I am so wearing my Star Wars dress next time.
Oh yeah, here she is meeting the Wicked Witch - Rebecca Mader - who is a lovely person and who also loved my friend's dress, whatever.
To the left is a Starrbird Productions original and awesome IT cosplay. Pennywise and Georgie.
Walking around, looking for photoshoot spots.
