I´m going to COMIC CON COLOMBIA!!!!

So I´ve never been able to go to San Diego Comic Con(SDCC) or New YorkComic Con(NYCC).Mainly because I don´t have the money for travel they aren´t ridicously expensive,but I just don´t have the money to get there and stay during my trip.So I normally stick to local cons such as Dragon Con and Anime Weekend Atlanta. That is when I´m home in the U.S., but that´s not where I am now.

I am in Colombia and while here I want to go as many conventions as possible before I go home. I´ve already went to a small MegaCon event in Armenia, but this seems con seems  to be largest convention in the country.

It is Comic Con Colombia .

So I´m super excited. Last year Bruce Willis was there,this year the actress,Millie Bobby Brown, that plays 11 from Strager Things will be here, as well as Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones,and the author El Diario de Dross.

So I expect a little bit of everything, I´m really hoping for Power Ranger and Wonder Woman stuff, because of the recent movies.Though honestly I have no idea what to expect.

But what´s awesome is it sponsored by the Marvel,Disney,WB,Sony,Paramount,SyFy channel among so many others big companies.

I´m more than a little excited,but I´ll keep you posted.

MegaCon Armenia,Colombia – a review

My first convention in Colombia.

Let’s start off by saying this, I am treating this convention as a solo entity. I recently realized that almost every convention I’ve been to happens to be one of the biggest in that country, or it’s somewhere in the top 10 there.

So first off let’s talk about who this convention for … …. TEENAGERS.

Now that’s a not a bad thing,I’m just not one anymore.

But you know what I did notice, those kids looked exactly how me and my friends did in high school. Punk, buttons, anime T-shirts,buying posters,plushies and pocky, those kids were us.
Now if I were to be honest, I only stayed for like 10 minutes.

I got bored.

Why…

Well I’m a vendor/artist/panel kind of women. I can spend hours going through artist alleies deciding what jewelry,comics and random things to buy.There just wasn’t an artist alley, But there were  a couple of vendors and video game competitions.

So as far as this con goes, it’s a good place for teenagers here to meet others with similar interest. It was small, but for the audience it was perfect  .

So out of seven Dragon balls it  gets a two.

Why?

Well, the convention would have gotten a four D.B. ,if it hadn’t been for one guy at the door,not letting me leave when I wanted to.

I understand only so many can come in at once but ,you know what makes that easier, people leaving.

It was small but enjoyable.
