Hayley on Chris Evans: “he’s a brilliant tap dancer, and a classical pianist. He’s smart. He’s a lovely man, and he loves what he does. He approaches his part with great determination. And as one of my friend says, ‘He’s just bro enough.’”
So today at ComicCon I cosplayed as Martha while my brother and his friend cosplayed as Gene and Jirard from Friend Like Me. This was Dodie’s reaction to the costumes.
And we got a second picture on Dodie’s phone which she tweeted and I was very overwhelmed when I got home and saw that.
After this the guys went back to their table and I was left with Dodie and I was so overwhelmed that I just started crying. Dodie gave me lots of hugs and just told me to breathe while I was just trying to give her the things I needed to.
I gave her all the “Open When…” letters and she seemed to really love them! I also gave her a few other things and then we took some “teary eyed pictures” as Dodie put it.
After this I was going to buy one of Dodie’s shirts but Jamie Jo was selling them and I was really embarrassed because I was just crying my eyes out while trying to compose myself enough to ask her for a picture. I did get a picture in the end but walked away without getting the top.
(you can really see the pain and embarrassment in my eyes, i was being soo awkward, Jamie looks cute though)
After this we went and got into Sammy’s queue to meet them all properly and got some extra picture that Sammy later posted on twitter (my notifs have been blowing up all night, thank you very much Sammy)
Later in the day the following things happened: met chloe dungate, tomska and evan edinger, got evan, chloe, Sammy and chris to sign my ukulele, met a really nice guy when queueing for Dodie again (cos I forgot to say some things when I was busy crying) also Connor if you see this, message me! It was really cool talking to you!
We also went to Dodie’s performance/ q&a thing ans tom’s performance thing and it was all really cool!
After this a few other completely unimportant things happened but yeah!
After months of revising and exams and more stress than I can cope with I was really able to enjoy today. It really brightened my mood and I don’t think it’s something I’ll be forgetting anytime soon.
In all honesty this was one of the best days of my life and I am so happy and grateful that I had the opportunity to have this happen and for all these amazing things! it truly is incredible,

I finally managed to pull together my cosplay for Dear Evan Hansen for day 4 of AX. My friend and I decided to take a more theatre-style approach to these costumes seeing as DEH is a Broadway musical, rather than trying to cosplay the actors themselves. It was shocking to see how many people actually recognized my character!
