Wow, that’s a lot of people.
I don’t just mean New York, although the sensory overload there is pretty overwhelming. But the crush of people at NY Comic Con was astounding and, for someone whose first reaction to a crowd is to find the nearest clear corner and stay there, a little daunting. As a result, I didn’t see as much of the con as I ought to, nor did I take nearly enough pictures.
Despite my first reaction to the crowds, I had a great time. I got to meet a number of wonderful people I’d only known through email or by name, joined friends for dinner and made new acquaintances, had some of the best hot chocolate ever (with a big fluffy marshmallow in the middle), and, strangely, got more sleep than I had in a week. I’m pretty sure that last is not the usual reaction to Comic Con. And I think I have to go back to New York at some point. Even the little that I’ve seen is enough to draw me back.
To top it off, I now have a Wonder Woman crown. How can the world not be more awesome with that?
