My boots are fan-freakin-tastic!

Oh Great Hera! These Wonder Woman boots are so fantastic I want to just wear them all the time, and I hate heels! They're shiny. They're awesome. I'm so incredibly clumsy in them but I don't care.

Stage 1: Wonder Woman

I'm so impressed with Spandex House. At first I was wary about ordering from them since their site isn't a typical ecommerce site. You add stuff into your chart and submit the order but there's no processing. You give them your phone number and they call you to take your payment information. I did think it was odd but as a person who has had her cc info stolen before, I realized this is probably safer than an encrypted site. I placed my order yesterday, got the call an hour later and this morning my package had arrived.

My boots and wig from Scavenge, Inc. arrived this week also. The boots are just so awesome! They're shiny and truly befitting a stylish superhero. I may wear them for no reason at all.

Holy Drunken Shit, Batman! I'm drinking with Jim Lee!

Baltimore Day 2 has been (in the immortal words of Barney Stinson) LEGENDARY. Here I am shooting the shit with Jim Lee at the Marriot bar where Frank Cho was only ten feet away. Jim asked what I do for the shop (Comic Fusion) and Stacy explained about my costumes and then told him about Wonder Woman Day and how I'm soliciting art at the con for the auction. Stacy showed him the postcard with the information. He flipped it over and asked if I had a pen and if he should use the back of the postcard. At this point Stacy and I looked at each with the telepathic connection, "Holy Shit! Is Jim Lee about to do a sketch for our charity event?" Stacy was wise enough to recall that I had bagged boards in my tote. I hurriedly dug one out and handed it to Jim. We watched as he sketched Wonder Woman. He didn't like the way the eyes came out so asked me for another board. Then he sketched Batman. He wasn't thrilled with that one either but we were giddy as school girls at a Justin Timberlake concert. We had two drunken Jim Lee inked boards for Wonder Woman Day. LEGENDARY.

Jim walked away to take pictures with a huge throng of fans who claimed to be Disney dancers and asked me and Stacy to help take pictures with their six cameras. Then a few minutes later he brought over a beer to me even though I wasn't drinking anything except ginger ale and orange juice. I was too freaking geeked out to refuse a beer from Jim Lee (thank goodness it was a nice medium amber beer, Sam Adams I'm pretty sure) so I had a few sips of it.

Baltimore so far

I met up with a few people who I befriended in Philly and bombarded many others with my presence for the first time. Howard Chaykin and Arthur Suydam were a freaking riot! I love those guys and they love my boobs. Boy I was only wearing T-shirt yesterday. Can't imagine what today will be like when I wear something else.

Off to Baltimore Con

Leaving for the Baltimore Con and doing the two-day retailers thing Monday and Tuesday there as well. It's a "real clothes" trip though which I'm bummed about. I just love putting on the spandex. Instead I'll be in official geek attire and a couple of low cut shirts hoping to get more donations for the Wonder Woman Day auctions.
