It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes I take pictures with people! lol
This past weekend was the second year of the SC Comic Con and it was so much bigger this year than it was last year. I was so super excited to go this year. I even asked for the weekend off just to make sure I could go. Yes, I am a big nerd and I ain’t afraid to admit it!
I didn’t actually get a lot of pictures of the event, I was too busy gawking at the amazing costumes and looking at all the nerdy crafts. It was a blast. The picture above is me with a bad guy from Doctor Who. It is from the episode “Silence in the Library.” It’s the first episode where you meet River. Also, it just so happens that the library is an entire planet…YES! A giant planet dedicated to being a ginormous library! It makes my little nerdy heart beat fast.
Anyways, the bad guys is called the Vashta Nerada, don’t ask me how to pronounce it because I have never been able to say it! He was the only character at the Comic con that I got so excited about that I almost didn’t ask for a picture. HAHA! I think I even shocked my mom that I personally asked and didn’t get her to ask for me. I have always been a quiet child.
After our walk around the convintion I went on ahead and did my duty and gave blood.
I swear it doesn’t hurt! It was actually the first time that the person sticking a needle into my vein missed it. She had to move the needle around just a little to get the blood. No biggy, and I got an awesome shirt! Which, I do not have a picture of at the moment.
I of course spent a little bit of money on my newest obsession…Funko pop!
Pixel bombed the picture, but she is adorable and allowed to do so.
I had the Walked dead already from a few years ago for Christmas. As well as the Nightmare Before Christmas ones. The rest I got from the Comic Con. I was super excited to find Dancing Groot, because he is adorable. Actually, I was super excited to find all of them! I went a little crazy buying them all. If I had more money, I would have bought more.
I did have a little money left over, and I decided I really needed to do something to the wall above my desk.
For a quick reminder, this is what it looked like before.
I took everything down and bought some shelves. I wanted to display my new toys, because the ones I had before had been boxed up in my closet. I didn’t have a good place to put them. So, since I was wanting to redo the wall above my desk anyways, I got to business. My mom went with me to Home Depot and got everything I needed. At home, my dad helped me put everything together.
Behold my wall of awesomeness and inspiration. You will have to forgive me for the bad picture. I left my camera in my mom’s car and was too lazy to go get it at the moment.
Thanks to my wonderful parents I now have this great place to display my awesome vinyl figures and there is room for more, which I have already put together my wishlist. I might share it with you all one day, since people like to see other peoples wish lists! 🙂
What do you collect? Have you ever been to a Comic Con? And in the first picture, can you tell me what my shirt is from? Only one person at the convention knew. It saddened me.
