I was walking through WonderCon in my Mara costume when someone tapped me on the
shoulder. I turned, expecting it to be a member of my garrison or someone wanting
me to stop for a picture.... but it was Tim Zahn! My first reaction was, "This is
sooo cool!" My second thought? "Uh oh... I was walking really fast. I hope I didn't
make him chase me halfway across the hall!" It was terrific to have a chance to talk
to him, and he gave some very helpful advice about the costume upgrades I was in
the process of making.
This picture will always remind me one of my "giggle in a very un-Mara-ly way" moments.
Steve Sansweet and TK.5 were kind enough to pose with me for a picture before the
501st group photo at Comic Con. Later, when one of the Vaders was dipping Mary Franklin
for a photo op, Steve called out, "Can I do that with Mara?" The other girl costumed
as Mara turned to me and asked, "Which Mara does he mean?" So I replied, "He can
have one of us on each arm."
And then, the giggling....
At Celebration IV, I finally got a chance to meet Shannon!
Visiting with Thomas after the Celebration IV EU Panel. Heís a wonderful friend,
great listener when you need to talk something out.
Man, Iím short.....
Photoshoot with my husband, Scott, and our friend Carolyn.
Why am I still smiling, you ask? ďNo brain, no pain!Ē
