We had a great time at DragonCon this year. It was the 25th anniversary for the convention and it was done right. See all of my photos at http://photo.davenelson.com/DragonCon/DragonCon-2011/
My favorite guest was Ernest Borgnine who regaled us with stories about working with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Lee Marvin. At 94 years old he is now voice acting as Mermaid Man on SpongeBob SquarePants and filmed three movies in 2011.
I also enjoyed listening to Jim Steranko who shared stories about the motorcycles of his youth, how he started a career with Stan Lee, and how he helped create Indiana Jones. I walked into the room expecting to take a couple of pictures and leave but ended up staying for the entire panel.
A change was made to this years costume contests, instead of a Dawn costume contest there is now a Comic Book Babes costume contest. There were some great costumes in the inaugural event and I agreed with the judges choice for the winner.
