Comic Con Chicago!!!!!

Both L and D are super into comics, superheros, video games, and sci-fi these days, so Adam decided they were finally old enough to head to the Chicago Comic Con! Luckily kids 12 and under get in free, so it was only $100 for us to get in. We NEEDED to dress up as well, so Adam got to work creating his and both kids costumes. Mine was super easy, I bought it from Hot Topic. D went as the Black Widow ("because she has red hair and shoots a gun"), L went as Han Solo, Adam went as the original Flash, and I was the Doctor's Tardis (my light on top even flashed).

On the "red carpet"

 This Lady Loki saw D as we were walking in and gave her a little salute. So when we saw her walking around inside, D wanted her picture taken with her. It was adorable because the girl had HER mom take a picture as well.
 L found this fellow Han Solo, and asked if he could get a picture. Cracked me up because he was at the bar and needed to set his drink down to take it.
 I just loved this little girl! She was dressed as Hermione, and D was too nervous to ask her for a photo. So I asked her if D could take her picture with her. The little girl was shocked that someone wanted a picture with her, and got really excited.

Oh poor John Watson. Left behind again.
 Yes, yes I know, these next few are blurry, but we weren't suppose to take pictures in this area. They were selling photo ops and signatures, but I just couldn't afford those. We did notice a large group of people hanging out by a black curtain in the back. We figured someone was bound to come out, and sure enough the crowd got really loud and cameras were going crazy. We could see Matt Smith's head bouncing up above the crowd as we bounced his way to his table.
 I am still in shock that I was this close to The Doctor!!!! He even waved to me (or in my direction)

And there is John Barrowman, otherwise known as Captain Jack Harkness!!!
 The kids did get to try out the new Skylanders video game that is not even out yet. When they went to school the next day and told all their friends, they were royalty on the playground.

 This IronMan costume was amazing!!! It was all homemade, and moveable mask, made all the sounds and even had pulsing lights.
 I found Amy Pond and the Last Centurion! While we were taking a picture, tons of people ran up for a shot as well. Made me feel a bit famous.

 I also got to take a picture with a real Tardis. I was super excited because as soon as I touched the handle, it started to make the noise!! EEEEEEEKKKKK!!!!!

And this is what I brought home from our trip. As of right now, all but the dalek is on the car.
