My favorite part about Comic-Con this year was when I got a t-shirt signed by DJ Lance Rock of Yo Gabba Gabba fame, as well as Erin Pearce, the voice of Toodee and inside of Brobee.
I lucked into a place near the front of the line at the Nickolodeon booth and then waited for an hour for my turn. I didn't mind though. The kids were safe and happy upstairs in "Comic-Con Kids Camp" and Erik was wandering around the expo floor doing his own thing. It was actually pretty Zen to just stand and stare at all the freaks and not have to corral any kidlets or get caught up in the crush of crazy comic book fans jockeying for the coolest freebie. When I got to the table and introduced myself, DJ Lance remembered me right away from oldskool Felt Clubs we did together years ago. That was nice. He's famous now! And rightly so. Yo Gabba Gabba rocks. I predict cult status in the future, if it hasn't happened already.
I asked him to make it out to Sage and McKenna, his #1 fans.
Sweet! I knew exactly what I was going to do with it when I got home. Fast forward a few days. . .
First, I cut out the important parts. . . (It's kind of hard to tell what it is at first glance, but it's his hat, glasses, and collar - you just have to imagine the rest.). . .
Then I stitched them all together, stuffed it generously, and turned it into a pillow (the perfect shape for hugging, I might add).
I also added "Yo Gabba Gabba" on the back.
Now whenever the show comes on they can get out their pillow and dance with their very own DJ Lance.
Break it down!
