Salt Lake Comic Con 2013

On September 7th we took the kids to Salt Lake's first ever Comic Con.  We dressed for the occasion, thereby establishing the kids' nerd cred early (as if there would ever be any doubt).  Victoria reprised her role as Princess Leia. Bertrand started off as Mr. Spock but, after Victoria stole/lost one of his ears, he ended up as an ensign from the USS Enterprise.  Matt represented for Battlestar Galactica, Aury for the Whovians, and Cristina for mama honeybadgers everywhere. Bertrand probably enjoyed himself the most out of everyone!  With 80,000 people attending on Saturday, the rest of us suffered from a bit of sensory overload.  We made it just over 2 hours before returning home and EVERYONE taking naps.  All in all, a great day, and we're already looking forward to next year.  :)


  1. Perfect! I love Leia and the Ensign. I haven't ever gone to a con because I'm afraid it will be too overwhelming. Bertrand has now shamed me in to trying. Shown up by a kindergartener! I have no excuses now.

    1. I love it! Bertrand is happy that he has inspired you. :) (Truth be told, the con was a bit overwhelming, but the people watching and booths are worth going to, even if you don't set foot in any of the sessions or workshops. :) You'll have fun, we promise!)
