Salt Lake Comic Con: Days 1-3

Sadness… Comic Con is now done! ;’(

I apologize for not posting yesterday for day 1 and 2, it got really crazy and man I was so flippin’ tired. So I will Compile Day 1-3 all into one huge post and share my experience with you!

Day 1. I went to Comic Con as myself, a Otaku/ Nerdy woman that is happy to be there! I was so blessed and beyond excited to meet the English Dubbed voice behind Edward Elric (Full Metal Alchemest), Tamaki Suoh (Ouran High School Host Club), Rin Matsuoka (Free!), Greece (Hetalia) and so many other characters off of various animes, Vic Mignogna. He is so sweet, kind, and he is real with his fans! I got an autograph and talked with him for a moment! He was and is AWESOME! I then did some shopping and found a few family members that were there! It was a great kick off to a wonderful con!

Day 2. I went as a gender-bend version of Dean Winchester from Supernatural! (I did have the Mark of Cain on my right forearm!) I was able to meet the girl’s off of the YouTube channel, The Hillywood Show! I bought this sick “Demons Gonna Hate” hat and got a pic with them! They too are so sweet! Then did more shopping and then proceeded to a Photo-Op with Vic Mignogna that my brother had! It was so cool! The funniest thing was when the volunteers were taking our bags and placing them to the side telling us to not give Vic hugs or handshakes, Vic was doing it all anyway! (Vic does what he wants! Can’t help that!) I was another really, REALLY good day! ^_^

Day 3. The most hectic day.. I went as another gender-bend, this time, if you can’t tell by the leather biker vest (Which I made) and Crossbow (also made) I went as Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead. We were able to get in pretty quick since we had Gold Passes (just below VIP). We (my brother and I) really wanted to see Vic again and buy one of his CD’s. However, he had a panel shortly after getting there. We wanted to see it before anything else! On our way there, guess who passed me in the hall… CHRIS FREAKING EVANS. Captain America. Passed me. In the hallway. Along with the 8 security escorts around him, but it was CHRIS EVANS.

Off track! Anyway, Vic’s panel was so much fun! He was walking down the aisles, making us all who were there laugh, cry (it got real for a few which was good!) and cheer for an hour or so. Then we went right back to his booth. (He asked us all who were at the Panel to go to the booth so that we could show Chris Evans that we know who Vic was) (Some stars who were there didn’t know who Vic was! They all lose house points!) So we did! And when he came out, we all screamed! Which made Vic’s face light up and he jumped on to the table and blew a kiss over towards Chris Evan’s booth! (Anime fans are the best!)
He loved this button I was wearing of Rin Matsuoka I got on Friday and took a picture of it! I bought his CD and was able to get another pic with him, WHILE HUGGING HIM! (Fangirlish squeal) He said I was a pro-hugger >////<
I then went shopping for one last thing and then left the Con.
All the Merch I bought at SLCC!!

I was so bummed that it was over but SO HAPPY that I was able to participate in it!
I love SLCC! I so look forward to FanX beginning usually in the spring and then Salt Lake Comic Con in the fall!
Have an awesome rest of your weekend guys!
May the force be with YOU.

After working two graveyards and forgetting what day it is, it feels so nice to do absolutely nothing. How often do we forget to just be still? I see fully once again how easy it is to keep going and going without taking any time to be still for awhile and refocus our lives. Not only that, to appreciate the things that we love and often take for granted.
I was more than happy to curl up reading a book and get a little crafty with making a bookmark from one of my most favorite Anime shows and Manga series, Hetalia! (created by Himaruya Hidekaz) It is beyond hilarious with stereotypical personified countries! (I’ll do an Anime/Manga post in the future I’m sure!)
It is still a struggle trying to get used to graveyard shifts and trying to get some gym time in. Hopefully it will get easier!
I am so grateful that I have the night off where I can get some family time and sleep time in! I hope you all are doing well and are having an awesome weekend!
