Heroes Con 2013

We're geeks. Like in the very basic sense of the word. And we aren't entirely good at hiding it, not that we would ever want to - like we could ever doubt our own coolness! Ha! Last week, we headed up to Charlotte with friends to visit the Heroes Convention, and pretty much immersed ourself in geekdom. And yeah, it was pretty much everything we ever dreamed of. 

We both delved deep into our own fandoms, from our favorite books (Hunger Games) to our favorite shows (Doctor Who) and all the way to the main appeal - superheroes!  Here are a few photos of the convention and some of our fellow hero-devoted friends! :)

For the record, I totally had my own "costume" - a nice ode to Claudia Donavan of Warehouse 13 (with a Firefly reference via the necklace.) It was subtle, but it was there.

After a long day, even Supes felt like taking the escalator...
