Had a great time at WWWC as usual! Love the intimacy of the convention. The unique location, the warm sun, and the cowboy theme- it’s so much fun.
I’m so glad I can actually talk to fans casually, hang out, eat with them…get to know them. Can’t do that at most other conventions. :)
Good show, good fun, and we got to mingle with all our steampunk friends and fans.
Here’s hoping for a fourth year with SPG!
This is probably the most fun I’ve had at a full-on convention in a VERY long time! Thanks to the organizers for making it such a wonderful experience and for giving me the opportunity to work taking pictures of all the amazing events throughout the convention! I REALLY hope that they bring SPG AND The Cog Is Dead back next year.
Very successful trip to Tucson! We are on our way home now and I couldn’t be happier with this trip! Got to meet The Cog is Dead, spent time with great friends, and enjoyed taking literally thousands of pictures. It may take me a week or two to get all of them sorted, delete the crappy ones, edit the great ones, and post those. I’ll work on a wrap-up on the way home and post it later!
The last two days have been amazing, and it’s not over yet! It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen most of the band members (except for Michael, who I see periodically), and I’ve missed it so much. Of course, I went hog-wild with my camera during panels and meet-and-greets and of course the Grand Concert. I will try to give a full report for you guys later when I have time. it is now 12:30 at night and I need to go to sleep so that I will be all rested for the final day, as we won’t be getting home to San Diego until nearly midnight tomorrow night.
I am crying huge, giant, Miyazaki tears and I don’t care because I am the happiest human on the planet tonight.
I saw them. I finally saw them. Live. In person. In concert. Front row. I was already crying at ‘Steam Powered Giraffe’ because it hit me: I’m seeing them live. I’m finally, at long last, seeing them live. I saved and worked hard to pay for all the tickets and I waited and waited and I’m finally seeing them.
My face hurt from smiling so much. They were freaking hilarious. Their voices were lullabys. Everything about it was perfect. And then ‘Honeybee’ happened and I could not stop crying.
I danced to ‘Ghost Grinder’, I kazooed along to ‘Make Believe’ and ‘Brass Goggles’, and screamed myself hoarse.
But wait there’s more.
I had my group picture I drew for them all to sign and my jar of stars for The Spine (long story).
Me: “You guys made me cry twice tonight. I just wanted to let you know.” Bunny: “SUCCESS!” Sam: “Oh, is this (my art) the cover for our video game? It’s really good.” Me: “Can you sign this ‘To Shojo, Love The Spine please? It’s a long story. I can explain later if you really want to.” David: “Oh yeah, sure!” (And then he smiled that smile that makes me swoon.)
And the Michael made me blush and wiggled his eyebrows at me and Matt gracious thanked me for coming out to the show. I went to put my art back in my folder and saw that both Bunny and Michael put hearts next to their names and David, on my jar of stars, put a heart as well.
I walked out crying like the fangirl I am, hugging my jar, and wondering how incredibly lucky I am to be in such a beautiful place, with fantastic friends, and getting to meet the people I’ve admired for years past and years to come. I love this band more than words can say and I have never been happier in my entire life.
I’m so glad that I was able to be part of that with you, My Love! <3
