convention recap: heroescon 2015


This past June, Jordan, AK, & I returned to Charlotte, North Carolina for HeroesCon. Since we had so much fun last year, we convinced a bunch of our friends to accompany us this year. We got two adjacent rooms at the Hilton and had a big weekend-long sleepover full of laughs and Bojangles.

Anyway, here are some highlights of the convention:
  • Reuniting with all of my beautiful friends~! HeroesCon is one of those conventions where I can meet and hang out with some of my favorite people in the world. This year, we had Lauren, Patt, ALB, & Niko in our convention crew, and I got to spend some time with Jessica on Friday. Also, Rico used his artist alley magic and placed the Somervillains directly across from the Cali Mean Girls (Babs Tarr, Kris Anka, Jake Wyatt, & Kevin Wada), which made it easier for me to bounce between my friends' tables. I also got to meet a lot of my lovely twitter/tumblr friends throughout the weekend. Yay so many friends~~~
  • Met a lot of amazing cosplayers and snapped their photos for ComicsAlliance.
  • I didn't cosplay, but I did wear an outfit inspired by Kamen Rider Meteor and I got to perform the henshin a couple of times 彡 Jordan was wearing his Fourze belt, but he was stationed at his table all weekend.
  • I got to host the panel for the Cali Mean Girls. I've never been on a panel before, so I was super-nervous, but I had a lot of fun talking to some of my favorite qts in comics.
  • I got a lot of amazing commissions this year, including a Miss Namikawa (from Invasion of Astro-Monster) by Veronica Fish, a Cat Eyed Boy by Ryan Cecil Smith, a Senior Witch (from Kiki's Delivery Service) by Natalie Andrewson, and a Strong Bad from Matt Chapman. I also got a ton of prints, stickers, and other treasures
  • People recognized me and Jordan from our comic cameos :3
  • I ate so much Bojangles.
