All together now: 1...2...3..."Awwwww."
That's my daughter, Peri Rachel, making
her comicon debut. (She was about 9 months old at the time this
picture was taken; my wife was 7 months pregnant with her at
the last show.) If I may speak as a proud father, many of the
people who saw this stopped to take a picture, though they had
no idea who she was! She squealed with delight.
But all did not go so smoothly during the
show: a fan in a Green Goblin outfit, and another in a very realistic
Planet of the Apes costume both made her cry; in fact, only Dad
could console her.
