Fandom Friday: Conventions I Wish To Attend


It's Fandom Friday again!

In my last post, I mentioned that I've actually never attended a convention (yet!). But for my birthday present to myself this year, I did buy tickets to my very first convention happening in less than two weeks, (see item number 1 on my list, below!), and I'm excited about it! The other four on this list are cons that I wish I could also attend. If only time and money weren't issues...


As always, thank you to the Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick for these Fandom Friday themes.



*CONVENTIONS I WISH TO ATTEND*

 

5. Hello Kitty Con


The very first ever Hello Kitty convention happened just a few months ago, last year! If you knew me in real life, you would know that Hello Kitty happens to be my Spirit Animal. I've been a diehard Sanrio fan since grade 3, and I always will be! So yes, I hope to be able to attend this convention at least once in my life! *Somedayyyy*

4. Dragoncon


I've dreamed of attending Dragoncon since I first found out about it years ago in a feature in Gothic Beauty magazine. It mainly focuses on pop culture in the sci fi and fantasy worlds, but it looks like it's attended by a huge variety of geeks from all tastes!

3. SDCC


The big one. The one. The only. San Diego Comic Con.  I'm jealous of all of you that religiously attend every year. One day I'll get there! 

2. Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball


I'm not sure if this really counts as a 'convention', per se, but it's a weekend-long event that offers opportunities for some AMAZING costume creations! I super love the movie Labyrinth with David Bowie, so how magical would it be to attend this?!? Furthermore, why does California get all the fun?!?

and finally...

1. Salute to Supernatural


I am proud to announce that this will be my first ever convention! I already have my tickets and my (casual) cosplay outfit all planned out, (I just need to finish one "prop" that I'm currently making!) This is also apparently the first year this con is being held in my hometown here in Texas, so I really feel it was meant to be ;)  (Also, the two stars of Supernatural happen to BE fellow Texans, so I'm extra proud!) And just to make things EXTRA sweet, it's happening five days before my birthday, and I'm thrilled to be celebrating it this way.


Honorable Mentions:


  • Fiesta Equestria:  A My Little Pony themed convention that still seems to be fairly new.
  • Faerie Con - because who doesn't love the world of Faerie?! How fun would it be to dress up all magical and pretty???



How about you? I can't wait to hear about other people's convention wishlists!
Until next time,
G.
