So LV comic con happened over the weekend. I didn’t know when it was, tbh, and if I had known, I wouldn’t have gone lol. Apparently, however, my sister’s boyfriend’s aunt’s boyfriend is the con’s owner and I didn’t know I would be going to the con until 10 minutes after I had fallen asleep Saturday morning (8:30a… idk why I couldn’t sleep).
Anywhooo… we got free passes! The passes were originally normal 3-day passes but once we got there and entered the exhibit, sister’s bf’s aunt asked us if any of us were Jim Lee fans. Sister and her bf didn’t know who he was but I did and yes, I am a fan. Have been since his run with x-men (pm since I could read lmao) and like, because I said yes, she said that while we go meet with her boyfriend, she’ll get us VIP passes (which were $200 EACH) and it’s also 3 day passes and I just. We’d meet Jim, get autographs, pictures and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Before we went to the Jim Lee signing, we met with his aunt’s bf/owner of the con and holy shit he was so nice. So freaking nice I couldn’t believe it ;_; I was kind of whining to my sis that she should have told me about us going to the con so that I could have brought my copy of hush for Jim to sign. I mean, I had NOTHING to be signed so I was a little bummed about that, but then sister told con owner Bill that this whole thing was a surprise for me, to which he chuckled about and asked me a few questions while I awed over all the comics he had at his booth. He then told me that I could grab whatever and however many books I wanted and I didn’t have to worry over paying and there were so mannyyyyyyyy jfc I couldn’t decide, oh my god q____q (I also had to be scrupulous)
So the stuff I grabbed are the ones in the pictures! $80+ worth :D except I already have my own copy of Hush and now I have two… but Jim signed one so yessss. After getting the books, we went to the area where Jim will he signing 20 minutes early, we were pretty much at the front of the line and we talked with one guy there who was also a huge fan and he had this huuuge delux edition of Hush, box included. VIP holders could get up to 10 items signed and he brought an entire bag of stuff lol. He was great :D
Jim came out. Signing began. I was nervous. But it all went smoothly and he signed hush, x-men and my pass and we all took a picture and he was so tiny and cute omg (I’m taller than him ahahaha) T_T highlight of my weekend, holy shit.
After that, we walked throughout the rest of the con and basically awesomeness. Also saw Alana, Eric and Alonso from FaceOff!! And a contestant from the new season who was cosplaying as Livewire :D so that was awesome too. I didn’t get to see Jae Lee, unfortunately, so that was a bummer. Also watched the cosplay contest and holly and jessica from heroes of cosplay were hosting it.
We went back yesterday and we bought a few things. I got a Gengar! He makes me happy lol I was torn on Saturday between bulbasaur and gengar and I even talked it out with a friend who kept saying gengar. My justification: I’m still upset that I’ll never get a Gengar in Fire Red, so Gengar it is!
So… yeah. Definitely had a great weekend. Minus the fact that I was running on an hour of sleep on Saturday :D
