What is your favorite holiday memory?
I have a new favorite holiday – it’s called Ohio Comic Con weekend. For me, it’s like Christmas, Halloween and my birthday rolled into one crazy weekend. Don’t get me wrong – I love spending holidays with the kids and family. However, I am never quite as excited about the other holidays as when I get to put on my Comic Con wristband.
This year, I decided to take Little Sister #2. We dressed up as Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman’s mom. It was so much fun to put together our outfits. She loved her Wonder Woman outfit, which was very rewarding as a mom.
She woke up before the crack of dawn to ask, “Is it time to wear my costume yet?” This is one of those things that let’s me know she is indeed my child. Also, this week she told me, “Hey mom, I know how to spell Joker.” I was really proud of her in a fangirl sort of way.
There were so many people at Comic Con this year. It was a little overwhelming for Little Sister #2 but she had fun. Maybe not as much fun as Wonder Woman’s Mom. People let me take pictures with them.
Deathstroke & Wonder Woman’s Mom 🙂
I met my online friend, Tracey, who is super cool. I wish I had known her before I moved away from Columbus.
Comic book artists signed my pink autograph book.
I also met Drew Blank. I wrote a post about him last year.
Little Sister #2 and I are still in a debate over where the Wonder Woman print will go.
It was awesome to meet some of the comic book artists. If there was more time, I would have visited more booths. (There’s always Comic Con in Cleveland in February.)
Plus, I had a photo opp with Manu Bennett. Best. Five Minutes. Ever.
Little Sister #2 did finally warm up to people, especially Poison Ivy and Harlequin.
She also had fun running down the hall and twirling her skirt.
After a long day, we did see a taxi that matched our outfits. I wish we could have taken it home. It would have been an even better ending to a great day.
Oh, I like this holiday! We should have a national Comic Con Day! May make it cheaper to attend too 🙂
That is a great idea!! 🙂
this is so awesome!! I’m so very happy for all of you! 🙂 Such a great time!!
Thanks Kate! 🙂 It was sooo much fun. I’m pretty sure I had more fun that the kid & Lucas. 🙂
I’m pretty sure my husband would declare it the best holiday, too! He has so much Spiderman stuff and plays Pokemon with his coworkers. =p Visiting from the Blogging Collective! =)
Thanks for visiting! 🙂 We could totally make it a national holiday. Way better than Sweetest Day, except for the chocolate. We could add a chocolate clause. 🙂
It looks like you had an awesome visit. And I LOVE the Wonder Woman costume!
Thanks! I was so excited when someone wanted to take a picture of her in her Wonder Woman costume. 🙂 Totally made my day. 🙂
