Phoenix Comicon : The Rest of the Story

The other day I told you all about my first day at the Phoenix Comicon. Since then and even before then, I’ve been trying to figure out how to tell you all about the other days. You see, there were some good, some bad, some amazing and some eye opening moments that weekend but so much of it is still so tangled up inside of me that I’m not sure what to even say about it. I’m going to do my darndest to give you a good taste of what really is an amazing con but please forgive me if it’s not my usual joyful bubbling.

Friday –

Friday..oh Friday..I woke up early because I had decided to surprise Walter by meeting him at the airport. Justin stayed behind at the hotel to try to figure out just how my corset was supposed to be laced. Meeting up with Walter was pure amazing...

Phoenix Comicon 2012 : Day 1

This is it. The post some of you have been waiting nearly two weeks for! I’m finally writing about my trip to Phoenix. I warn you that it wasn’t all pretty but in the end, it was all amazing. I will also warn you that all pictures on this post (and upcoming posts) were totally and blatantly stolen from my friend, Andy Bohn. Why? Well because I was distracted the entire weekend and typical me…next to no pictures. Read on and find out as I give you my day by day summary of Phoenix Comicon 2012 with random photos thrown in for good measure!

Thursday – Hereby known as Katrina was exhausted day. I was up at 4am after being up until 1am...

C2E2 Day 3 : The End Has Come (and a really long drive!)

Sunday, bloody Sunday…See? Inner dj is still on! There was no blood, I swear! Ok, there might have been but it wasn’t real blood! It was makeup blood and it wasn’t on me! There were tons of cosplayers with tons of fake blood on them. I don’t have any pictures, so you’ll just have to trust me that it happened.

I woke up waaaay too early this morning. It was probably close to 2am before I went to sleep and I woke up probably six times overnight and finally gave up and got up at 8:30. This meant that I was packed up and checked out of the hotel by 9am. After a quick stop at the gift shop for a couple of shirts for the boys, I dragged a luggage cart upstairs to the room, packed everything on it and then dragged it alllll the way out to the van and loaded it up...

C2E2 Day 2 : A Thousand Miles (or how far I walked!)

Saturday in the park…no wait. I seem to have the inner dj turned on and I was never in a park this weekend. Let’s just start over, shall we? Saturday was what I tend to call omg busy. I was up by 9 and considering Friday was tiring and I didn’t get to bed til 2am, I was concerned with that. I did the usual post-waking things..showered, dressed, ate a banana and then I was off to the convention center!

Yet again, I caught the shuttle to the airport and then it was off to the train! This time, I wasn’t alone but got to spend the entire ride with Phil (dad), Connor (son – about 13) and this adorable little girl whose name escapes me, but she had a stuffed wolf named Sammy. Phil was in town from Indianapolis and the kids were up from Kentucky for the weekend...

C2E2 Day 1 : Friday the 13th…

Woo! Guess where I just got back from? Well, if you read here last week, you would know that I spent the weekend in Chicago…all by myself! Eek! Clearly though, I survived and I have returned bearing lots of new and hopefully fabulous things to write about. In fact, I have enough review material to last quite a while! So, over the next few days, I’m going to give you a general run down of what I did, who I talked to and how me, the girl from Middle of Nowhere, Michigan, handled riding the train and making her way downtown. (Does anyone else immediately hear this song when I say making her way downtown?

So, let’s get started, shall we? My weekend started bright and early on Friday. I had to get up, finish packing everything up and then loading it all into the van...
