This is already quite the weekend...

Well, let's see...Day 1 of Sci-Fi Valley Con was the first of three days of most intriguing fun. As we all know, a lot of sitting around, displaying your wares and hoping to make some sales.

I came into this not expecting to sell much, but I was told Friday is the slower day. While most of the TV and other stars were downstairs, I was upstairs in the big room, checking out the product, and watching a lot of activity.

I was most happy to run into my old friend and fellow author Olivia Berrier...it was her idea for me to come to these things...

I got her to sit still for a second...I also got to meet my Instagram/Twitter friend, Invader Gaya...

Really nice person, and a unique art style. Yes, old guys like me do have online friends, and it was nice to meet Gaya and her family. Cool people.

All kinds of creatures appear at a con...

Furries...

I'm not sure who these young ladies were supposed to be, but their costumes were well done...

This fellow was in a wheelchair, and participating in some kind of challenge quest...

Best costume of the day!

Not sure, but nice...

Want to say Harry Potter, but the uniforms are not right...

Hello again...

Beaker stopped at the table next to mine, he knew the people there. He said Bunsen wouldn't come with him this year...

Something Disney, right...?

Very cute.

Gothic Lolita, kinda sorta...
