Comic Con 2014 Hangover

So in case you missed it, this past weekend was San Diego Comic Con (SDCC)!
I attended as is tradition, and for the FIRST TIME EVER: I cosplayed!!
Jason as the Penguin, Topher as Riddler; your's truly as Joker!
I think I did ok for a my first time (I don't count Halloween, since it's Halloween. But that's just me...not a rule, or guideline, just more to challenge myself!). Also, while I thought I might scare little kids, but they LOVED my hair! Their expressions of "Your hair is so cool," and,  "mom, that's what I want my hair to look like" made my ego inflate in a much needed way. But this one little girl at the Monster High panel said "I LOVE your costume! It's the best Joker I've ever seen" made me feel like a million bucks! And luckily it was early on in the day, so I think it helped me not shy away from having my picture taken.

Cause if a kid tells you your costume is the best, then it's gotta be true, right?

So, because I have been prepping me, my costume, and my home for SDCC, I know I've been on a bit of a hiatus...and so I hate to do this again, but, I WILL resume next Wednesday with a Workout Cosplay next week! And I am hoping to picture spam you all with my SDCC photos...despite my inability to take a selfie...and my shaky hands lol!

I seriously already miss SDCC! This one was sooooo good though!

July has been an emotional month, and SDCC was so important for me to go to. My hubby missed the con this year as he has joined the Air Force at the beginning of the month. Also, family and friends have been in and out of the hospital--and not for small things either. It's been a roller Coaster.

Seriously, thank God for SDCC, cause in all it's magical geeky mayhem--it kept me sane!

Anywho, I plan on writing more later, but just a quick update for now. Catch you on the flip side!

  1. Hang in there! Everyone will be here as a support system when it gets a little hectic. Glad SDCC was such a fun time! I'm really going to make an effort to go next year (already saving money) and try to meet anyone who goes next year too. :)

  9. Your Joke costume is incredible! I love it! I've never been to SDCC, but I did go to the ComicCon in Dallas last month and had a blast! It was my first one, and now I'm addicted!
