Oh Joy! The SDCC wrap up

28th July 2013

 I love going to comic conventions! Everyone dresses up like its halloween, theres mysterious lines that are always forming, and its a mecca of good finds for collectible items. A special part that I love about the San Diego comic con, is that its so close to the ocean, that I can constantly get fresh seafood! Heres some other things I love about SDCC (and life):

 gloomy skies on hot days. Its like natures shade! bounce houses watching movies in empty movie theaters  balancing you feet on different uneven thingsdrawings on things other than paperdrawing on paper is still really great, thoughbeing read to making faces inside of masks and outside of masks giving out fun things for freespecial menus for special events recognizing subtle public displays of affection  finding a secret passage that makes it easier to S cape having a safe place to leave your things while you’re walking aroundhaving someone run their fingers through your hair frosty milkshakes on hot days when you remember to replace a plastic bag with a canvas one  when hotels put mints on your pillows going to shows in old theaters

Stumptown 2013

1st May 2013

Over the weekend, Alex and I drove up to Portland to partake in the Stumptown Comic Fest. We made a zine together full of nonsense about llamas. We called it a llamazine. Its my new favorite car. Heres some photos of our booth!

It was my first time doing conventions. It was so fun being able to sell the things I’ve had so much fun making, hanging out with my best friend all weekend, and putting ourselves into a sugar coma along the way.

My San Diego Comic Conclusion

I got to spend some time down at San Diego Comic Con, this year and had the best time people watching, visiting my friends from far away lands in their booths, doodling in corners, and collecting toys, flyers, and candy in my purse.

Comic Converse!

I’ve been to several comic conventions, but this was only my second one to the San Diego. The last time I went equipped with a borrowed Canon 7D and used it to make this fun little video.

SDCC is nuts. There’s people lined up outside of convention halls for days to get a glimpse of the cast of the Big Bang Theory. People camp out for hours before the show opens, in hopes of getting a ticket, to be able to stand in line, for a toy that they will only make 100 of. There was even a Comic Con casualty outside the center, and almost one at the Zerofriends booth.

As much as I appreciated all the chaos, I mainly enjoyed getting to walk around and do some people watching, and grabbing lunch with my fellow photo taking friends. Heres some shots from my trip!

Alex and I discovered the best way to eat the worst foods is by masking them with nacho cheese. It was regretful yet delicious.Sash got to meet up with Audrey Kawasaki and talk about tattoos.I got to meet up with Jim and talk about our splintered phones.

I gave out poem treats to those who had been walking the floor until their feet were about to bleed, like me. Sam and I got to pet the cutest pups when we all showed up too early to a party, where this meal happened!

Yes. I ate the most incredible 6 course meal prepared by the amazing chef Wolvesmouth. I now have dreams that involve cheese fritters all the time, and I wake up drooling far more that ever.

the convention center was swarming with these adorable fluffy llamas. I have no idea why, but it made the entire trip just a little bit cuter.

Zoetica has a glowing unique style, that I made sure that her camera did too, by turning it into a face!

The convention center was typically full of very small people, and not so typically stocked with one abnormally large little person.

I got to see Dethklok play before their tour beings, on a battle ship, during a brilliantly planned party thrown by Adult Swim.

there were a ton of different forms of documenting Comic Con, and I’ve loved seeing everyone elses photos popping up online.
