Two Geeks Walk into a Con

News Flash:
I am such a GEEK!!!
As is Justin. Which is why our marriage is awesome!!!!!
So, this weekend, we went to Comicon.
But, before I get into that, I have joined Skirtember challenge. This challenge is to wear a dress, skirt, or dress-shirt every day in September. Well, I didn’t know about this until the 3rd. So, that day I dressed in a skirt for work (luckily I wore a skirt to church like I always do on Sundays).
Sunday, 9/1, I wore a black and cream maxi skirt, cream skirt, and a black wrap.
Monday, I didn’t know and I traveled on a plane home.
Tues, 9/3 Skirt: old, Socks: old, Tank and Cardigan: old, Shoes: Sole Envy
Wednesday, 9/4 Shirt: Papaya, Skirt: BYU Bookstore, Tights: H&M, Shoes: Payless
Thursday, 9/5 I wore a pink dress with a brown shirt and tights.
Friday 9/6 Skirt: Black and cream maxi, Doctor Who fan shirt.
Sat 9/7 I wore a costume for Comicon–no skirt.
Sunday, 9/8 Skirt and shirt: WalMart, Tights: H&M, Shoes:Payless

So, onto Geekdom!!!
Friday, we went after I was done teaching. Saturday, we dressed up. We saw a lot of cool costumes and some awesome booths. We went to a few panels, but honestly, some were boring and all were packed. Salt Lake City didn’t expect this many tickets to be sold. It was jam-packed on Saturday–over 50,000. They eventually stopped letting people in. We hung out with a few friends.
I dressed up as Rogue, based off the cartoon, X-Men: Evolution.
I think I pulled it off. Here are some other pictures from ComiCon!
Gollum doesn’t like my advances!
Korra from Legend of Korra and a Kyoshi Warrior from Avatar the Last Airbender
Ulquiorra’s last form from Bleach anime!
Justin and I adventured in the TARDIS! 
Justin’s Wolverine! Doesn’t he look awesome!!
He totally pulled the look off!
There is a girl inside that moving Dalek!
Thor doesn’t want to be touched by Rogue–he knows what’ll happen to him!
My favorite Bleach character: Urahara!
Justin found Gru on his way to steal the moon!
What a nice Ood! Very obedient when I asked to take a picture with it.
Loki, Captain America, and Thor-a
Justin found his idol.
Captain Kirk! William Shatner!
Jana, this one is for you! We snuck a picture of Dean Cane, when we should have paid $40 for it!
I have proof I saw the Silence!!! No more forgetting!

  1. haha!! You guys had fun, and Justin looks very Wolverine-ish indeed! My Mom unofficial nickname is rogue because she had dark hair and very distinctive gray streak right in front, lol!

    Great job with the skirt outfits!!

  2. How fun!! =) Doesn't even look like you in the pictures, haha! And your totally not a geek and if you are, you are the coolest one!! Excited to see what you do with Skirtember!!

  3. I love all your skirt outfits! It's so much fun to put together different pieces.

    I also love your ComicCon pics…looks like a lot of fun!

  4. So I found your blog on the Skirtember challenge and I am sooooo jealous about comicon. I absolutely know I could convince my husband to go, but we would need one to come to our midwest area!
