Comikaze 2015 - Day 2

Today was day #2 at Comikaze 2015 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and it was sure to be our busiest day.

Gene had unpacked the droids and had them set out by the time I arrived before the show opened.

Princess Leia came by before the show started to say hi to her favorite droid.

At 9:00am the doors opened, and the booth was pretty much packed the entire day.

It being Halloween and all, Gene's serving drink cups were filled with Tootsie Rolls.

And there were more where those came from.

Early on, we got to get a group picture with Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood, from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Cool!

One of the main highlights of the booth was Mike Senna's public debut of his BB-8! And yes, it did drive/roll.

It attracted Reys of all ages.

It also attracted BB-8's two-legged cousin.

Baby Predator now has an older sister, as little Kayla and now Zoe Miyamoto team up.

Gordon Tarpley suited up as C-3PO, as if the crowd wasn't big enough.

Then Mike Senna brought BB-8 over for an awesome photo op.

Milynn came by. I blushed a little less than usual.

Some other fun stuff:

We wrapped up with a group photo. Pictured from left-to-right:

And then it was off to bed for the droids.

Another great day! One more to go.
