Cosplay by fans at Salt Lake Comic Con 2014

I’ll admit it.  I’m genuinely amazed by men and women who cosplay.  To me it’s so far out of my comfort zone, but I would love to do it.  For those that don’t know, the US government considers me extremely obese.  I consider myself a little larger than a healthy person, but I’m a work in progress.

The night before Salt Lake Comic Con

Geek socks bought this week from JC Penney, Big Bang Theory.

We had a bit of a shopping spree today.  I needed new shoes if I'm to keep up with the crew.  While shopping we saw some new nightgowns for the girls that we just had to have.  We wouldn't be proper gaming parents without.  There is even a panel at … [Continue reading]
