Dragon*Con Installment 3: Making New Friends at Cons

One of the things I love about Sci-Fi/Fantasy Cons is making new friends and then seeing them again at other Cons. I was fortunate enough to meet Rachel and Damian at BabelCon last month. We really hit it off, and I was really excited to find out that both of them would be attending Dragon*Con.

Rachel and I, over e-mail, planned our cherubian costumes for the parade. Then the three of us sat up until 2:00 in the morning in a hotel room on Friday night rolling my first chapter brochures and rubber-banding them to Smarties for the parade the next day. They also entertained me at my dealer table, Damian gave me some good selling advice, and they passed out brochures to people at the Con. These are true friends—the kind of friends who go out of their way to help you, and I can’t believe I only met them a month ago.
