This year was the first time I dressed up (I was the wall from Stranger Things) and I was shocked at how many people laughed and screamed and got so excited when they saw my costume. I must have had my picture taken a hundred times...it was a lot of fun to connect with fellow fans of the show. Here are a few highlights from the weekend:
|I got to see Coldplay in concert the night before Comic Con started. |
What a treat!
|Lennie James has the most dreamy British accent. |
I could listen to him talk forever about upcoming Walking Dead teasers.
|I am SO one of those people who takes a picture of her food |
to remember how good it was.
And this calamari salad from a food truck outside the convention was AMAZING.
|If you're a Stranger Things fan you'll get this one. |
We found this just randomly hanging on the wall.
|It's Theron on display at the Shadow Mountain Booth!|
I got to do a couple of book signings during the con.
I love getting to talk to fans about my books.
|My daughter Emma dressed up as Joyce Byers to go along with my Wall costume.|
Here we are with one of the many Elevens we saw during the event.
|Had to snap a picture of my favorite cosplay. |
Doesn't this guy look so much like Kylo Ren?
|I got to meet and talk to Gwenda Bond and Ally Carter!|
They are so down to earth and friendly,
and they both adored my Stranger Things cosplay.
It's hard to tell but I'm fangirl screaming on the inside. :)
|Me and my gorgeous crit partner and friend, Kathryn Purdie.|
|We got to meet Millie Bobby Brown who plays Eleven on Stranger Things. |
She was the most adorable thing ever talking in her British accent
and helping Emma figure out how to hold her phone for the pic.
|On a panel with James Owen, Jen Jenkins, Matt Kirby, and Leigh Statham |
talking all things world-building.
|Some serious writer wisdom spouting from my mouth. (I wish, lol)|
After a whirlwind week I am off for a whirlwind trip to the Mediterranean, starting with Barcelona! I can't wait!
I'll be lying right by your side in Barcelona
