I am no longer a con-virgin. Me and boyface braved the snowy roads to attend the Steel City Con yesterday. I had a blast! It was just like I imagined-toys, collectibles, comics, and nerds. I spent a lot of time staring at 80s toys. I saw a lot of toys that I had when I was a kid-cabbage patch dolls, Legos, He-man dolls, Skeletor dolls, Ninja turtles! And a shit-ton of barbies!
And of course a ton of comics. I didn’t buy any comics because the ones I wanted were all in single issues and I prefer to buy them in collections, also known as Trade Paperbacks. Saw some “famous” people. Bo Duke from the Dukes of Hazzard was there and some WWE girls. And Darth Vader was there, a few storm troopers were walking around, the joker and Harley Quinn, and randomly, some pirates. *shrug*
Oh yah! Boyface and I got a caricature made. It’s of us as Link and Zelda
Glad I got to go. And hopefully there will be more in the future. I reaaaally want to go to THE con. Comic-con, San-Diego, but tickets have been sold out forever. *sigh*
Check out Dan Schoening’s Mary Blair inspired re-drawings of female superheroes.
Super cute, right? You can find more of his work here.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope everyone of you, whether you’re single or taken, has a happy Valentine’s Day!
I have a few links to share with you.
Our Little Family– is a blog by one of my dearest friends, Amanda. It documents her new life as a mommy of a precious boy named Caiden as well as other things she’s dealing with in life-decorating, gardening, and of course the perfect haircut!
Mana Pot Addict-is a new blog by my friend Kiki! She describes it as “Pictures, links to things I find interesting, adorable kittens, Anything! By default I am a geeky person, I sit at my computer all day and play video games, so expect most of what is posted here to be sort of amazing.” It is definitely a super cute blog and I’m already drooling over one of the items she posted! These super cute headphones from UrbanEars! They come in purple! Squee!
Yooshername Whatshername is a new blog by my friend Devynn!. This is the third time I’ve updated her link, hehe. Make sure you check it out. She blogs about her every day life, funny situations, astrological stuff, and if this blog is like her old blog, which I have a feeling it will be, it will have the coolest “I want” posts that will have you adding some new clothes/items to your collection. Check out this cute zipper bracelet! I want one in silver.
add them to your blog roll!
We got a foot of snow this weekend and apparently will be getting more this week.
