When I’m not signing or in panels, I’ll likely be wandering the show floor and hanging out around @mynameismad‘s table being a nuisance. But otherwise, I’m psyched!
I can’t wait to see all of you guys!
TCAF 2016 was an amazing convention and being welcomed back is an honor.
Crashed last night but thank you OZCC for the good times! I had so much fun tabling with @astrothecary crying and screaming over many things in particular the AMAZING NIGHTWING AND ROBIN COSPLAYERS THAT DROPPED BY OUR TABLE ON SATURDAY. I’M DEAD!! WEEKEND MADE!
Funny story… Saturday morning I got lost getting to the venue but I spotted a Robin Damian cosplayer and thought logically we had to be going the same way. So I followed him but I was walking pretty closely behind because I caught a glimpse of my Damian and Nightwing charms on his backpack (im crying). Naturally I was tweeting this entire experience.
By the time I finished setting up I checked my phone and saw the Robin cosplayer had replied to my tweet saying it was him I was stalking and before I could scream I looked up and HE WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. He was totally sweet, I cried a little and he came back later with Nightwing.
The other funny part was my table partner was texting me images of a Nightwing cosplayer she was following to the venue as well. GUESS WHICH ONE SHE WAS FOLLOWING ^^^^^^^^^. So yeah had a great weekend!
Athena drawing I made exclusively for Comicdom con in Athens. I had a great time, met fantastic people and saw amazing historical treasures. Definitely a trip that I won’t forget and makes me want to be back next year :)
