Seven years ago, I attended Anime Festival Orlando and it jumpstarted my love for cosplay (even if I didn’t cosplay at another con again until years later). This convention holds a special place in my heart because way back in 2010 it was the first con I ever cosplayed, my first ever anime convention, as well as the first con I attended without any family with me.
This was such a unique con to me because it didn’t focus on any particular show (like the Supernatural or Buffyverse cons I’d gone to) nor did have tons of fandom celebrities that you could meet (such as at Mega Con, FX Show, or SDCC). It came at a time where I was really delving into anime during college. I was so excited about it, I wanted to show my love through cosplay like so many others. My mom and I made my Katara Fire Nation cosplay in just a day and I had SO much fun wearing it at the con. I met so many other fans and took so many photos – it was such a blast!
When I found out that I was going to be in Florida during the convention this year, I knew I definitely wanted to go back and check it out – and do some cosplay, of course! Back then, my first ever cosplay was Fire Nation Katara – this year, I was going to debut my Water Nation Katara cosplay – it felt very full circle in my head.

2017 San Diego Comic Con Schedule
Can’t believe this will be my 11th year attending SDCC! The past couple of weeks have been pretty rough personally, hence the lack of posts and social media presence. Nevertheless, I’m going to try to put personal life on hold this week and try to enjoy what is always a highlight of my year.
I’m always super ambitious with my schedule trying to pack as much as I can in 4 and a half days, but here’s a somewhat realistic list of where I plan to be in San Diego. I’ve also included a few things I wish I could attend – if only I could be in two places at once! If you’re also attending SDCC, let me know if you’re going to be at any of the same places by commenting on this post or on social media so I can say hi!
Keep reading for my San Diego Comic Con schedule! Also, if you’re interested, here’s my schedule from last year!
Last month, I attended Anime Festival Orlando, a 3 day convention focused on Japanese animation and pop culture in sunny you guessed it – Orlando, FL. I have a lot I want to say about this particular convention as it does hold a special place in my heart in terms of cosplay, but I’ll be saving that for the upcoming Recap post. In today’s post, I want to share some of the great cosplay my dad and I came across at the con.

Today I will be sharing my experience at Cosography, a one-day cosplay convention that took place in Cocoa, Florida. Although this local convention was much smaller than the cons I usually attend, there was still a little something for everyone whether you were a cosplayer, photographer, or just a lover of nerdy things.

Earlier this week, I posted my first set of cosplay photos I/my dad aka my blog photographer took from Orlando’s MegaCon 2017. Those photos covered Friday of the con. In this post, I am sharing with you the many, MANY cosplayers we saw on the biggest day of the convention, Saturday.

I had such a blast at MegaCon 2017! It came a bit abruptly for me so I wasn’t as prepared for it as I would’ve liked but, nevertheless, I had an amazing time!
Since there was SO much going and my dad (who acted as my blog photographer) and I took SO many photos, I decided to split up my MegaCon coverage into three “types” of posts – yes, expect a lot of MegaCon ahead – Cosplay, My Experience, and What I Wore. I’m going to start with my first of three Cosplay posts sharing some of the various cosplays I saw over the weekend. Splitting them up by day, I will begin with Friday (as I did not attend the con on Thursday).

I’ve been wanting to do another fun geeky tag for a while so when I came across “The Geeky Girl Tag” on ZombieGoddess Beauty
, I jumped on it! It’s been around since February, but I say better late than never!

My final day recap of Star Wars Celebration Orlando! Having spent the first two days camping in lines and attending panels, I had not once stepped foot onto the main floor to check out all the cool exhibitors and vendors. I decided for this last day, I would don my Han Solo cosplay (minus holster and blaster) and finally check out out the main floor. I was expecting to go it alone, but there was a pleasant surprise in store for me!
Keep reading to see my exhibit hall highlights and fun cosplay photos!
In my last post, I recapped my first day of Star Wars Celebration Orlando. Today, I’ll be continuing on with my second day recap! While yesterday was somewhat of a disappointment due to not making it into the 40th Anniversary Celebration panel, that wasn’t the issue today. Learning our lesson, we easily made it into The Last Jedi panel.
Keep reading for all the day’s highlights (and one unfortunate low) and don’t forget to catch up on my Day One post!
