I should have said 4 Stargate Conventions! I have met the following people (some you may know from other shows but they were all Stargate folks): Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, Christopher Judge, David Hewlett, Jason Momoa, Paul McGillion, Joe Flannigan, Ben Browder, Tony Amendola, Torri Higginson, Beau Bridges, Morena Bacarrin, and other people I know I can't think of at the moment emoticon

I wanted to go to AwesomeCon when they had the DC installment back in the spring, but we couldn't afford passes. Also, as fun as it would be to see all my fellow nerds/geeks out in costume, I'm super uncomfortable with large crowds where I don't know anyone. Stereotypical nose-in-a-book nerd (is it any wonder why I identified most with Belle as a Disney princess?).

I'd also like to get better at making costumes...right now I use super glue to "stitch" everything together, but I'm good at repurposing clothes from Goodwill as costume elements for my own original creations. I'll have to post pictures of my fairy costume from a few years ago (Halloween)...I even did some pretty elaborate makeup to complete the look.

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

I have just returned to Sparkpeople as well, and looks like we have a lot in common! (although I am a rather newbie Whovian).

Cons are a blast! I have been to three Stargate conventions in Chicago, and just attended the Cincinnati Comic Expo, where I got to meet Jewel Staite and Paul McGann! My husband, dad and I are heading to the Awesome Con in Indianapolis in a couple weeks and then another one in Dayton, Ohio toward the end of October. I really would love to go to one of the Supernatural Cons, but the prices for the passes are SOOOO expensive.

I don't ever dress up for cons, mainly for the same reason as you, but hopefully one of these days I can go dressed as Hathor from Stargate (that's one of my dream costumes).

Great to meet ya and see you around the board :)

I'm a returning sparkpeople member, so I thought maybe this time I should be more active in the groups as a way of keeping me on track. I have lots of weight to lose, so I should be around for a while!

Now my geek cred. And can I just point out that the fact that I'm concerned with geek cred should count as cred all on it's own.

I love most things sci fi. I love Doctor Who, it's my very favorite show to watch with my daughter. She's my little Whovian. My favorite Doctors are Tom Baker, my first Doctor, and David Tennant. I watch Firefly every couple of years, I'm still mourning that one. I'm a huge Buffy and Angel fan. I love Warehouse 13, Haven, Eureka, Supernatural, and The Walking Dead.

I love video games, but don't seem to have the time to really play them as often as I wish I could. I played WoW a few years ago, but still remember it fondly. Hopefully, sometime, I'll pick it back up. Other than that most of my most recent games are more like guitar hero, just dance, wii fit, halo, and minecraft with my daughter. My favorite games are the Final Fantasy series, though. I also loved Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Legend of Dragoon, and pretty much every rpg I've ever played.

My favorite authors are Stephen King(his older stuff, mostly), Neil Gaiman, and Dean Koontz. I love to read, but lately it seems like I just can't get a lot of it done.

Hoping to make my way to some Cons, one of these days, and I'd love to be fit enough to dress as some of my favorite characters when I do! emoticon Looking forward to getting to know everybody! emoticon
