I met Pam Arciero at Dragoncon, and Leona Lion was with her.
So, a story about this, cause it was kind of a big deal.
I didn’t know she was going to be there, let alone have Leona tagging along.
I decided to try hitting the Magic Puppet Tea Party for the first time. Basically a puppetry meet & greet, and you can only get in if you have a puppet and plan to interact.
So I waited in line, and when I walked in, the first thing I saw was Arciero and Leona (From Between the Lions) at the end of the room. I froze up. Here was one of my favorite puppets of all time, and the performer for her, and I had no idea they were even at the con. And while folks were dividing off into groups at different tables, no one had joined their’s yet.
SO GUESS WHERE I SAT. And got to have a nice little chat with both, and it was fantastic, and the panel was great, and there was a puppetry charades game that was rather amusing, and EVERYTHING WAS AWESOME.
