GEEK SDCC

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!

Pre Preregistration Jitters



Let me just say I've watched this twice already.

I am so scared, and excited about tomorrow.

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you feel really stressed? That's been mine!
Because my week has been my thoughts about tomorrow are much like a tennis ball, bouncing between two opponents named: "Will-the-bad-week-continue-to-tomorrow?" and, "Surely-this-bad-week-will-lead-to-good-things-tomorrow"

I am worried and hopeful about badge sales tomorrow morning.

Things tend to work out ok...but I don't want to get too cocky. I keep reading The Nerdy Girlie's SDCC info, and trying to remind myself not to worry.

But putting this into practice? Oi Vey!

And the Starbucks Double shot I just had isn't helping LOL

So what to do? Here's some things to re-happy before tomorrow morning:

  • Check this 24 Hour Music Video! It's by Pharrell, but the song is really chipper, and I like the idea of a 24 hour video, mostly because I want to know if this is legitimately 24 hours.
  • Naruto! Sasuke! Goku!...Goku?! :D
  • Saban's opening theme and version for Sailor Moon (this makes me feel good because it DIDN'T happen!...Though at that time I was in elementary, and probably would have watched it anyway. Still glad). 
  • How adorable is Sandy?
Alright...see you in an hour or two!
Send me you prayers, good thoughts, and luck! 

I'm going for my Comic Con badge!

EXCELSIOR!!
