San Diego Comic Con 2013: Day 4

The LAST DAY!!!! :(  We missed out on the Doctor Who panel, but tried for the autograph signing.  There were 1,000 people in line but only 100 tickets.  We didn't get in.  BUT The Music Maven was able to get into the Community signing!

The best part of the LONG line was FINALLY being able to meet my good online {now real life!} friend Leonard all the way from the UK!  He runs the G+ SDCC group and is now a SDCC staffer.  If you are not following him on Twitter please do.  He is such a fun chap to talk to!

After NOT getting into any signings, I was able to roam the floor and see everything I was unable to see in the days prior.  I had a long shopping list of swag to collect and things to see.  Here is the amazing Futurama toy I purchased this year.  I love seeing these every year, I hope Toynami continues to produce them!

After a nice sit down lunch at Burger Lounge and a quick stop by the Geek and Sundry lounge {GREAT SWAG} the sister in law informed me that Nathan Fillion was going to do a Smiles for Smiles photo booth at Nerd HQ!  We rushed over there to already find a BIG line, but we made in and eagerly awaited his arrival!  While we waited I found out that my Twitter friend Barb was also around and ran over to say HI!  I was so happy to finally meet her in person and jump into a convo like we were already best nerd friends! 

Zach came out before the photo booth to thank everyone for coming out the entire week.  He had to whisper into the mic so I barely noticed he was there!  BAD NERD!  Hopefully he can get some rest and return to NYC with his voice!  I LOVE all that Nerd HQ does, it is such a great way to raise money for a great cause.  What wonderful people run Nerd HQ and volunteering all their time!

We were all surprised that it wasn't just Nathan in the photo booth.  Alan Tudyk was there too.  Nathan liked my Doctor cosplay and we shot the photo quickly.  When it was over I gave them both a big squeeze, BUT apparently it was a BIT TOO BIG for Nathan as he was "OUCH why'd you do that?!"  I then said sorry, sorry, sorry and ran away.  He was laughing of course, but I guess I don't know my own strength!

Then we headed over to the last panel of the con hosted by my friend Tony, entitled Multicultural Heroes.  He did such a great job and it was such a fun and eye opening panel.  Someone did video it, so I'll let you know when I see a link.

After the panel I was able to finally talk to Tony again.  We had only spoken briefly on Wednesday and Thursday.  I had my Geek Magazine and made him sign it for me.  I throughly embarrassed him.  But he is such a sweetheart, he laughed it all off.

Meeting up with all YOU readers of this lil blog was my FAVORITE part of Comic Con.  I do all this writing at home alone at my desk and it is so FUN to see how many of you actually read it and enjoy it!  Thank you so much for coming up to me and letting me know, it completely lifted my spirits and made me feel so blessed!  I love you all so much and I cannot wait to see you at next year's SDCC.  If we got to take a picture, please send it along!  I would love to add it to our Facebook page.  I will also add ALL my SDCC pictures there too!

Do not fear I will continue to write year round.  I hope that I can still bring you fun and interesting articles throughout the year.  Any tips you want me to write on or suggestions I would LOVE to hear from you all!  Please comment below or tweet me @thenerdygirlie!

RIP SDCC 2013!!!
