New York Comicon 2013

titleI was cutting it close when I left for Vegas and spent a week there before New York Comicon. The day I got back was the day the convention started! However, I managed to make it and was so excited to bring my mom this time around! My mother is my best friend so I take her to a lot of events with me. She is very adventurous so it makes me happy when I see her having a great time at these events. We had a blast and enjoyed seeing all of the artwork, artists, people in costumes, and more. As a comic lover, I went a little crazy with my wallet but it was all worth it. I bought a bunch of vintage romance comics and movie posters from the 1950s and also bought some art for my future office in Vegas. My mom also loves purchasing art so she got herself a few things as well. I think I might have her cover the show next year as she has become a pro at taking photos. Without her I wouldn’t have any at all to post here on my blog! My friend Nubia was also covering Comicon so it was awesome to see her and hang out for a bit. She looked ADORBS dresses as a My Little Pony and I wore some stuff from the Forever 21 Bats & Cats collection. I have been waiting for Comicon just so I could sport my Forever 21 cat woman cropped sweater and leather cat ears so I paired it with my favorite vintage leather shorts, some back seamed stockings, and my Jeffrey Campbell Tardy boots. It wasn’t a costume but as jet lagged as I felt, it was comfortable and it worked. I was blown away by the people who dressed up and have to hand it to them for being so creative. It was very inspiring so of course I took photos of some of my favorites. Check it out inside! Continue reading

Comicon 2012!

I have had my hands full with work within the past few weeks, so I almost didn’t even make it to Comicon this year. Low and behold, I still found a way and attended this massive event with my beau. I only spent a little over 2 hours there before I was off to work but I had such a blast. I’ve been a gamer and comic collector since I was a kid and it has yet to rub off. I wish I could have dressed up but I didn’t have time to commit to a costume so I went in a very cool Warhol inspired Marilyn Monroe get-up by Betsey Johnson. I couldn’t even concentrate while I was there, enamored by all of the booths full of my favorite video game and comic book characters. This convention gets bigger and bigger every year so the only thing I really had an issue with was how PACKED it was to the point that it was hard to even walk at times. I still managed to get around and found lots of great goodies I got to take home with me. I found an awesome vintage comic from the 50′s, 3 big giant authentic vintage posters, and an autographed pinup calendar page. I took endless photos of my favorite comic girls like Vampirella, Wonder Woman, Veronica from Archie Comics, and more. I was sad I didn’t get to see any Fathom, Soul Fire, or Witchblade booths but I can see them next year. Here are some photos of everything that caught my attention at this amazing convention.
