First Con of the Year: PAX South!

First month of a new year and first convention of the new year! I have always wanted to go to PAX Prime so I was super excited when they created PAX South last year. I was unable to go due to illness so I was stoked that this year we got three day passes. It was a ton of fun. Honestly I didn’t play nearly as many games as I wanted to, but we caught some really awesome sessions, met up with a bunch of friends, and saw some really talented cosplay. It was extra special too since my 15 year old sister got to come with and it was only the second convention we’ve ever done together. We all had a blast!

Here are some of the highlights from our PAX South adventure.

Obligatory SDCC Post: I Love San Diego!

A little over a month ago I was in glorious San Diego with my fiance, drinking local beer and eating some of the largest portions of food I’ve ever had (like seriously, California you sure don’t know how to portion control – I thought Texas was bad). San Diego Comic Con has been a bucket list item of mine for EONS and finally, after years of trying, I managed to score both of us tickets. And it was everything we could have ever hoped for.

I didn’t take as many pictures as I wanted – there was just too much to do and look at and I think most of the time I was just walking around with my eyes opened wide trying to take it all in at once (that’s what she said). I had actually hoped that maybe SDCC wouldn’t be as great as everyone says it is so I’d never want to go back, but sadly (happily), this was not the case and I am planning on going back next year because you can’t just go once. It’s like getting a tattoo – it’s now become an addiction. I need more SDCC in my life.

And because I already miss it so much (Was I really just there last month? It feels like a dream.), I am going through all the pictures I did manage to take and I’m living vicariously through Past Nikki and feeling all the feels again. Here. You can feel them with me.
