My favorite things about SOFA 2017

S.O.F.A. stands for Salón del Ocio y la Fantasía. This is a general nerd who likes everything but even if you´re a specific kind like only science fiction or anime.They had something for everyone.

6.)Take a DJ class.

So I didn´t go up to him because my Spanish is trash.But how many  cons give you the oppurtunity for you to learn to be a DJ???

5.)Stuff

Well there are a lot of things that they had.It was nice to have

 

 

Shout out to the shop Bric A Brac in Bogota who let me put down my giangantic bag to find pins that I wanted.Their people where super nice.

 

4.)All the different rooms.So this was held in the Conferia in Bogota which has multiple gigantic two story rooms.There were four vendors room a gaming room,an anime room,visual ,kid,not to mention other rooms that were used for a lolita fashion show,a cosplay pannel,and for things such as archery.It was nice to have all these things under one roof.

1.)I got to play Star Wars:Trials on Tatooine Demo with Steam VR.

So if you don´t know this is a total VR Star Wars video games.Now let me tell you something I was slightly not wanting to do this becusae I didnt want to pay for but I spent the little 15,000 pesos for it was amazing.

I got to be a Jedi for a couple of mintues.It was only a two part demo but it was great.

I was totally was planning on buying this game at home. that was until I went to Gamestop and saw that the VR will cost you around 600 USD.

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.

Why my Dragon Experience was probably better than yours

Hey guys,

I’m not trying to say that my Dragon Con was killer(or am I) or like that you didn’t have a good time.But like, I had one of the best things that can happen with anyone in their fandom.

Storytime:

So Friday was my first day at Dragon Con I went after work and got kinda lost(stuck in hotels with no knowledge of how to escape).I went to the dealers room plotted out what I might buy [I never just buy stuff of a whim I think about it and decide later[unless its like a rare (fill in the blank) for really cheap].Next I went to the JoyStick Video Game Bar,for a live Black Nerd Girl Podcast(It was awesome).Saturday was full of just hanging out with new friends(so busy having fun I had no time for panels).

SUNDAY IS WHEN IT HAPPENED.

So, I don’t think a lot of people know this about me, but I’m undercover hard core Power Ranger Fan Girl.Like I own Saba,the communicator watch,the white ranger movie morpher,along with the original TV show morpher(with all the coins),not to mention I’m reading the comic about them by Boom.So I decided if I don’t get to make it to any other panel, I have to go to this Power Ranger Reunion Panel.Got there two hours early,only to find that I’m like fourth in line fast forward to us and a Doctor Who line merging.Fast forward to us getting in.Side not I was doing a Billy Cranston Cosplay(blue ranger plain closed cosplay).So we have the actors and voices of Jason,Lord Zed,Billy,and Alpha 5.Someone interrupts that they should do,the iconic transformation ‘It’s morphin time’ thing Austin St. John(Jason) is like you got to finesse me before we go into that.Richard Horvitz(Alpha 5) was hilarious and so was David Yost(Billy).As the end of the panel,David Yost was like yeah we’re gonna do this and dedicate to you guy,who interrupted the panel.So the host managed to have a red ranger morpher,and guess who happened to have a blue ranger morpher to be used. Hahahahah

THAT WOULD BE ME!!!!!!!!!!!

So as far as I’m concerned my morpher is an  official a blue ranger morpher.

And here’s the video proof

Yep yep,I got  a much better interaction than I could have ever expect.

This ranger is heading to write some more stuff,
