Patrick Stewart canceled his appearance at D*C.

But Gillian Anderson has confirmed her appearance at D*C, as has Richard Dean Anderson.

It's over and I'm exhausted.

(But if it lasted even longer, I'd still be there.)

First time in 15 years that I didn't attend any panels at all. Hopefully I'll make it to a few panels next year.

Predominantly cosplay, I guess. Not much in terms of panels or celebs.

I like the Folks that were brave enough to dress up as the Post-Bane Encounter Batman character.

Re: Dragon*Con 2012 - Atlanta Aug. 31- Sept. 3

This video is of a D*C 2012 panel with Alice Cooper and James Randi (aka The Amazing Randi) talking about the "Billion Dollar Babies" tour of the early '70s:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/LOM7J2-r6lw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Some background on this: "Billion Dollar Babies" was one of Alice Cooper's biggest albums. And on its tour, he hired James Randi to perform magic tricks (including using a guillotine) onstage.

We took our little kids to the parade and I was very surprised to see James Randi there in the parade. Cool! Thanks for the vid.

Re: Dragon*Con 2012 - Atlanta Aug. 31- Sept. 3

2012 was my first time. I went with a friend (who had been before) and a couple others who had not been. It was an incredible experience. Going with great people helped a lot, but the event itself was awesome.

I did realize that there is just so much to do and see, and unless they happen to be located in close proximity, it's tough to get from one session to another in time. Back to back sessions is very difficult. So once we managed our expectations with that, and realized we would not make it to 90% of the stuff, that helped. Plus the atmosphere and costumes etc were at least as big an appeal. I got some great pics of people/costumes (including a family that was there on Saturday as Adventure Time, I stopped them for a pic for my boy, I think they were happily surprised to be accosted.) And even with my piecemeal costumes, I was stopped a couple times too, (as was my accompaniment), which was nice.

I would have liked to see Alice Cooper's panel, but I did see him chatting with Stan Lee about six feet from me in Alice's photo opp. That was cool.

The parade just kept going and going, that was great.

I got my ticket for 2013 as soon as they came out Missed out on the hotels, so I'll keep trying, but I got a hotel about a block away for the whole weekend.
