Comikazie, now known as Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con, was just last weekend. Yup, one week ago! Zooom!
I hadn’t been able to attend last year, but this year I had a free Sunday and my niece Celia was able to come along too with me and my dad! As a trio, we three eagerly made our way through traffic, to the Los Angeles Convention center! Yup! VROOM VROOM down the 110 freeway! (Yeah it was not VROOM VROOM, but slow slow!)
We got inside just about 11AM and began our big adventure to walk up and down all the aisles, browsing all there was to see and buying things that said “buy me!” The floor was pretty busy for a Sunday! Lots of people all happy and having fun! It was packed but never overwhelming to get through the crowd.
One of my favorite things about conventions is the cosplay! There’s lots of cosplay too at this convention! I loved it! I’m like “OOOH! LOOK AT THAT!” I am giddy seeing the detail people put into their outfits!! I do ask cosplayers if I may take their pictures first and remember it’s the polite thing to do! (Manners, people!)
One of the first and best cosplay we saw was a couple dressed as Hawkgirl and Hawkman! Their wings were fully retractable and flapped! It was amazing!
STRANGER THINGS was super popular too!!
And now just a one more favorite!
Besides the cosplay there’s so much to see, so many talented artists sharing their work! Toys that I dream of having, Comic Books I need for my collection. Buttons, Pins, bows, wallets, handmade goods! I just LOVE going to conventions! Yup!
My dad had our comic book need list, though a much more condensed version than what we usually venture out with, so near the end when we found the 50 cent comic book bins we didn’t go as crazy as we could have! Celia was awesome and helped me dig through the boxes! We filled in some good comic book gaps!
We walked and walked all morning and into the afternoon! Celia got some cool stuff, and a few gifts for her siblings! I scored a new bow, my dad and I got comic books! It was a success!
Yup, I had fun at Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con, whew, that’s a lot to say! (type!) Celia had fun and so did my dad! We delighted in our nerdom and are looking forward to doing so again real soon! It’s nice to share my geeky ways with my family! You got to pass on the things you love and that’s what going to Conventions is about! Wearing your fandom on your sleeve! YUP!
