Fangirls, I had the incredible opporunity to go to the first ever BroadwayCon. It’s a convention for all things Broadway, on and off the stage. It was everything a Broadway fan could dream of, and of course it took place in New York City. It was one of the best weekends ever.
Fangirls, I did two conventions right in a row, and that’s why this is coming at you so late. I’m a bit drained, but I had a fantastic time at Baltimore Comic Con, and I was pleasantly surprised by the size and experience.
Fangirls, you know how I made a rad list of the things I was going to do, and I tried to keep myself organized? It didn’t work. As soon as I got inside, I was reminded that SPX is huge and there are so many amazing creators, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
Alright fangirls, it’s time. Tomorrow I leave for this year’s Small Press Expo (aka SPX), and I’m both terrified and incredibly excited. On one hand, it’s time for one of my favorite conventions ever, on the other, there are a lot of people to meet, and a lot of things to do. So where do I start?
Last year, I experienced my first real convention. I went to Leaky Con 2014 in Orlando, FL. And let me tell you, it was the happiest week of my life. I flew down by myself, shared a room with four friends, three of whom I’d only spoken to online, and made so many new friends I can’t even begin to count. But what really matters at Leaky (now Geeky) Con is the atmosphere.
Fangirls, last weekend was ConnectiCon! ConnectiCon is one of my favorite conventions, and a huge part of that is Super Art Fight. Even more so than last year, I spent almost my entire convention weekend with the dudes of Super Art Fight.
