Last weekend, I had the AMAZING opportunity to attend Comicpalooza, the Texas International Comic Con! Comicpalooza is held yearly at the George R. Brown Convention Center right here in my hometown Houston, Texas, and was from Friday, June 17 through Sunday, June 19, 2016 – a perfect celebration for Father’s Day.
As a fan girl of comics, cosplay, and everything geeky, this is an event that I look forward to all year. Comicpalooza just so happened to be the very first comic con I ever attended which surprisingly happened merely last year in 2015. But, better late than ever right? Comicpalooza is one of the largest comic cons in the Houston area where you have the opportunity to see all types of Comics and Artists, Authors, Costumes and Cosplay, Celebrities and Actors, Panels, Events, Activities, and so much more.
Take a tour of what happened at 2016 Comicpalooza with me and experience all the epic moments of fun as I cosplay Suicide Squad Joker and Harley Quinn in my NEW video!
