Comic-Con was the first part of my two weeks in California. This was also my first Comic-Con, and boy did I go over budget
I arrived late on Wednesday to meet up with Polaroid as I was staying with him. This was great because he is a veteran and expert on Comic-Cons. We stayed at Kings Inn which has two restaurants, and the free shuttle bus stops in front of the Inn. Thursday I didn’t have a ticket yet so I went to the San Diego Zoo, and had a great time there too. Later in the evening we met up with Matt & Bronwen to pick up her ticket so I could use it the rest of the weekend. We talked for awhile and offered dinner out, but they had to get back to make manikins.
Friday 13th was a excellent day. Met Frank Cho and got his signed calendar and some prints. Also a couple drawings from Armando Huerta. One of his models (Andi Lyn) was there and Snuggles got his picture taken with her. Armando does awesome drawings, and so does Greg Horn. He was the next stop, and many others.
All this time we were getting pictures of the many Cosplayers, and most had their picture taken with Snuggles. He was getting email addresses left and right, Lucky bastard. Guess this more of a continuing adventures of Snuggles.
Saturday was a big day. I met Doug Sneyd of Playboy fame. He did a drawing of Ceilidh from a picture on my website. He said this was the first time he had done a drawing from an iPad. While waiting for the drawing I got an autograph on my Witchblade shirt from Mark Silvestri. After dinner we went back to pick up my drawing and iPad. Then looked around until closing.
Sunday we went back in the morning to do some final shopping to get the best bargains. Also Frank Cho singed my Liberty Meadows shirt. After lunch we stopped by Ruby13, but that is a story for another blog
Well it is July already, and Snuggles seems to be on the prowl again so I thought I would revisit the story behind Snuggle’s Adventures.
Many of the members at ODC know the story behind Snuggles, but it was a story started at TDF in late 2007/early 2008. So most of the new members haven’t heard how it all started.
Well Snugglesb469 was a member at TDF, and as a fun thing to do Camp got a Snuggles bear and took a picture of him between Dottie’s Boobs. Naturally Ceilidh wanted to do it too. Then we had the idea of sending him around to different members to take the same picture with different dolls and post them. But the bear’s true nature started taking over, and soon he was doing all sorts of things with the dolls.
Snugglesb469 later married Misty-the-Cat, and had a den of cubs, or is that kittens, anyway Snuggles went into semi-retirement and was content to hang with the dolls here. That was until recently when he got an eyeful of ‘Tut’s Nips’ and had to go snuggle between them ^-^
After sending Snuggles to King Tut I went back to collect most of the old shoots, and put them in my gallery, and will link them here; http://incredidoll.com/gallery3/index.php/Snuggles When I find more I add them too.
The first shoot with Snuggles was also another first. It was the first time Dottie came to see Ceilidh which was the first time two “non-related” dolls were brought together for a photoshoot.
So for this month I though I pick up where left off. King Tut did a couple stories with Snuggles, and they start here at Day 10; http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=4049.75
After Snuggles came home it didn’t take long before Yoshi found him, and had her way with him. Also Poor little Tamaki was relaxing in the porch when the little Gigolo startled her by pawing her up. She seemed to warm up to the idea and really did a number on him too.
Will he now go back into retirement , or should you be on the look out for any strange behavior in your doll? Hmmm…
