comic con 2016


I am realizing as I draft this up, that I don’t think I’ve done like a chatty-real life-plus-photos-blog-post in ages!

as some of you may have seen on my instagram, last weekend I went comic con (insert ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year’ sound byte here). this was my third time attending the convention, and probably my best one to date! I feel incredibly fortunate to have a husband who works on a totally kick ass tv show (which I won’t name for privacy reasons), that allows me to not only go to the convention – but attend some pretty rad events and parties (thanks BEB!).

I thought it might be fun to share some photos with you, and a few of my favorite moments from the weekend. this is only a mere sampling of everything we did – it’s always a jam packed weekend I tell ya…running from one thing to another!

highlights from the weekend:

+ dressing up on day two in my hocus pocus cosplay! you guys know I take my costumes very seriously – and winifred sanderson is a character I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I sewed (and painted) my entire costume by hand. I also handmade the giant spellbook that served as my purse! I’m not even kidding – the lid of the book opens up to reveal compartments inside where I stored my wallet, extra makeup, and comic con badge.

+ meeting gemma correll. I’ve been a fan of gemma’s for a long time…and never in a million years did I think I would get a chance to meet her!

+ walking the convention floor. I think this was the most time I’ve ever spent on the floor during a trip to comic con. it genuinely takes several days/hours to make your way through the booths. we were probably in there for hours at a time over the course of the weekend, and I almost guarantee we still didn’t see everything! I also picked up some sweet stuff…and am thinking about filming a mini comic con haul for my youtube channel (would you guys even watch that?).

+ attending some super sweet events – including ‘adult swim on the green’. they apparently do it every year, and is essentially a giant outdoor carnival. it’s an insanely well done event, but it is so cool to see fans in full action!

+ ending our days with pokemon go. I know it sounds silly, but there’s something really rad about walking around the gaslamp quarter at like 2am looking for pokemon…

well, that about sums it all up (in the shortest way possible, haha). until next year comic con! xo

  3. Lucky you, sounds absolutely amazing! 🙂 Your costume is beyond amazing..!! 😀

    Yes please, I’d love to watch a mini comic con haul video!

  4. Your costume turned out amazing Roxanne. I would thoroughly eat up a comic con haul video (who wouldn’t???? 😉 ) And that book is soooo friggin’ cool. For quite a few years I was the props master for a local studio and gosh I almost kind of miss the challenges and thrills of making ‘out of this world’ stuff. I can totally respect the many hours you had to have put into your costume and book.
