Ok so now you know the when and where, but WHY am I jumping for joy? Well not only do I get to make and show off my latest costume/cosplay creation (stay tuned for details and sneak peeks!!!), but there are SO many amazing guests and events that I can’t hardly contain my excitement.
Yes, I am officially geeking out and all for good reasons! Let me count the ways…
1. Jeremy Renner – A girl can dream right? This two-time Academy Award nominee not only is talented, but plays a hunk of a Hawkeye!
2. Stan Lee – Stan IS the man, the myth, and a legend. To breathe to same air? Priceless.
3. Hayley Atwell – AGENT CARTER!!!
4. Jason Isaacs – I pray I don’t go all fangirl mode and scare off this sexy Slytherin.
5. George Takei – By far the coolest man online. Do follow his Facebook page? I would just die to meet him in person.
6. Cobie Smulders – Girl Power! I would love to share “How I Met Wonder Woman”
7. Henry Wrinkler – The one, the only, the Fonz!
8. Ivy Doomkitty – I am such a fan! I can’t wait to see what character she cosplays next…
9. Peter Mayhew – Did I mention that I am a BIG Star Wars fan?
But, guess what? It gets even better…
Not only do I have the opportunity to share my experience of my very FIRST Comic Con (gasp), but I have the opportunity of giving away a FREE Family 4 Pack of tickets! That’s 4 tickets for 4 days – a value of $240 – for one pretty sweet experience that you will remember for a lifetime.
Enter here for the chance to win!
The winner will be contacted and announced before May 20th. You must be age 18 or older to enter, be a United States resident, and provide your name, email, address, and phone number in order to claim their tickets.
Good luck and stay tuned for more exciting Comicpalooza updates! I can’t wait to see you there at the big event!
Have a flavorful day!
