Friday was the first official day of DragonCon 2005. People were arriving all day long, and the dealer rooms and galleries opened in the afternoon. Some people visited various panels or spotted toys they might want to buy later. A few of us went to a Dune party complete with a Dune novel cake. There were some neat costumes roaming the lobbies, but the really cool ones should appear Saturday evening. We capped off Friday night with a big Pictochat session in the Marriott.
