    Cosography 2017 Recap

    Cosography 2017 Recap // The Geeky Fashionista

    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.

    Keep reading for details on my first local Florida convention!

    MegaCon 2017 Saturday Cosplay Photos // The Geeky Fashionista

    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.

    MegaCon 2017 Friday Cosplay

    MegaCon 2017 Friday Cosplay Photos // The Geeky Fashionista

    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).

    Keep reading to see Friday’s incredible cosplays!

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando: Exhibit Floor Fun

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando // The Geeky Fashionista

    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!

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando // The Geeky Fashionista

    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!

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando: 40th Anniversary

    Star Wars Celebration Orlando // The Geeky Fashionista

    I was planning to do just one Star Wars Celebration Orlando recap post but because of the sheer number of photos I took, especially on Sunday, I decided to split it up into three posts, one for each day I was there. This post will recap my first day of the convention which I spent pretty much doing one of two things: in panels or waiting in lines to get into those panels (or waiting in line to get a wristband to wait in the line for that panel…yes, that was a thing). 

    Despite all the line waiting though, the panels were amazing and well worth the wait for any Star Wars fan! Keep reading for my experience recap and be sure to check out my cosplay post from the event as well!

    San Diego Comic Con 2016 Sunday Recap

    San Diego Comic Con Sunday

    Sunday

    Yayyy!!! The last of my 2016 San Diego Comic Con recaps is here!! Despite the fact that the con happened over two months ago, I still decided to do this post. Why? You might say it’s pretty irrelevant at this point. Well, because in all my 10 years of attending Comic Con and almost 6 years of having this blog, I’ve never made it to writing about Sunday which is kind of sad. I always write about Preview Night and Thursday but then by the time Sunday rolls around, I’m all Comic Conn’ed out and Sunday is all but forgotten about. Not this year! With this post, I’ll finally have a full set of Comic Con recaps. Despite the personal reasons for this post, I hope you’ll still enjoy reading about the last day of my San Diego con adventure – it’s short and sweet, I promise! After all my venting in my Saturday recap, I thought it be best 🙂

    San Diego Comic Con 2016 Saturday Recap

    SDCC Hall H Line Marvel

    Saturday

    I’m almost done with all my San Diego Comic Con 2016 recaps – yay!! This one I’ve been sort of putting off a bit because I’m still a little sore about it. Day Three aka Saturday was a bittersweet day for my group and I. It was the one day we would all be together, and we all went into the day super excited for a long day of exciting panels within Hall H. However, due to a dire mistake made my line management, our dreams were crushed, and we endured the longest wait of our lives and vowed never to wait for Hall H ever again…okay, that’s a little dramatic, but it was kind of a dramatic day.

    Read on to find out what went down (don’t worry, there’s still a happy ending).

    San Diego Comic Con 2016 Friday Recap

    Comic Con 2016 Friday Recap

    Friday

    Today I am finally sharing my San Diego Comic Con 2016 Friday recap! If you haven’t already read my Preview Night or Thursday posts, be sure to check them out to get caught up on my SDCC adventures! Without further adieu, let’s jump right in!

    Having turned in rather early the night before, I was super excited to get a good night’s sleep and wake up nice and early for a full day of amazing panels. As you can see on my con schedule, I had quite a full morning planned with some of my most anticipated panels (Cosplay Makeup, Geek Branding) of the entire convention. Of course, my body just had to go on the fritz that morning. For those new to the blog, I’ve had a lot of health issues over the past several months causing me to quit my law office job, stop attending classes, not drive, and for a period, unable to leave my bed. Praise God that I’m obviously doing much better now and for the most part can go back to a normal life, but I still suffer from daily (worst in the morning) abdominal pain and occasional chest pain and nausea. This particular morning, the abdominal pain was relentless, and I knew no matter how much I really wanted to see those panels or how much I tried to suck it up and bear the pain, there was just no way I was leaving my hotel room anytime soon.
