The Moran cosplay went well. People seemed to enjoy it--those who got it, anyway? [livejournal.com profile] aprilstarchild, [livejournal.com profile] pennswoods, and impossiblemonsieur from Tumblr staged a Moran (me)/Moriarty (impossiblemonsieur) kidnapping of Sherlock ([livejournal.com profile] aprilstarchild and the Fandom Police ([livejournal.com profile] pennswoods) gave us an ASBO for kidnapping. When impossiblemonsieur posts the photo of it to Tumblr, I'll put up a link. It was fantastic.

Made it to three panels--Three Patch Podcast's panel on what fandom means to you/how it's changed your life, a panel on Sherlock/James Bond and MI6, and a panel on Sebastian Moran. The MI6 panel was my favorite--very educational! All the panelists had their shit together 100% (one of them actually presented a short paper). Pretty impressive for a panel at a con that doesn't announce panelists in advance.

Not sure what I'm going to do today. I'm really starting to hit the wall regarding my ability to deal with being around people. An hour or so in the hotel room is just not cutting it anymore.

I'm having a great time getting to know [livejournal.com profile] write_out in person. Maybe I'll just find a corner to quietly hang out with her for a bit when she's not otherwise occupied.

Walked from train station to hotel, helped con vendors unload vans. Totally counting this as movement


Yoga for hangovers because yeah

They had the panel for ACD & Spiritualism again this year, so I thought I'd give it another try. When I peeked in the door, though, it looked like the same people I walked out on last year. I wish this con ran their programming like most other cons I've attended, where the panelists are a little closer...vetted? And informed of who else is on the panel? And then maybe the panelists are listed in the program? Yeah.

I want panels to be more than four people sitting at the front of the room sharing anecdotes.

At the Granada Holmes panel, the panelists agreed that it was the most faithful and accurate to the books. I asked the question what external factors (so, beyond the producers/actors/etc.) enabled that. What social/technical/cultural influences helped create what they were describing as the most elegant and accurate of the Holmes depictions? Nobody even tried to answer my question. The best I got was "it was the right place at the right time." Well, great, but I was hoping you'd go deeper.

Wrapped up Sunday evening by sitting in the hot tub with 34 of the remaining con-goers. Someone got a photo. If I find it, I'll post it.

Here's the photo of our group getting the ASBO.

I realized tonight while she was in the hotel room with me (like, ten minutes ago) that the charming [livejournal.com profile] indybaggins is not only on LJ but has been following me for quite some time and I feel like a fucking idiot. GOD. So, yay, new friends! Boo, crippling embarrassment!

I'm very much looking forward to being home tomorrow.
