Happy Monday: Our Boston Comic Con Recap!

Well hello!  Today is my oldest’s first day of school. It’s so early. My youngest doesn’t start until the 29th so it seems strange that I can’t fully lean into the ‘back to school’ thing. Which also means I can’t return to work fully until they are both off to school. But I am doing some administrative stuff which isn’t always my favorite but it needs to be done.My oldest loves comics and this year he saved his money so that he could have his photo taken with none other than Stan Lee at this year’s Boston Comic Con! We took his money he saved and bought the ticket for him. So we headed out early yesterday. Nick dressed as Sam Wilson the latest Captain America and I dressed up as Lionheart, Riri Williams (the new female Ironman).  Instead of proper planning, I literally cut out some shimmery paper on my Silhouette and used double sided tape to attach it to my shirt right before we left. I didn’t have an ironman mask to carry which would make it obvious who I was but that was fine because we wanted to arrive early.When we arrived we had to go stand in line with the others that purchased tickets for the Stan Lee event and let’s just say it was quite a long wait. We stood for over an hour but I tell you the look on Nick’s face when we entered the room with Stan Lee was priceless. It lasted all of a few minutes and then we were ushered off to pick up his photo. I wanted to share it with you but Nick, as you know, has reached that age that he does not like me to use photos of him on the blog. 
We had fun walking around seeing all of the amazing cosplay. I had to jump in and take a photo with Darth Vadar! Many people even made their costumes themselves.In the photo above there is a 16-year-old girl in that robot and she built this entire costume including the stilts she walks on.  Can you believe it? Another great reason to attend these conferences is that you get to discover new artists and authors. I met Marcus Williams, the illustrator, and co-creator of a new comic called, “Tuskegee Heirs” comic book series and got his autograph. It’s a new sci-fi action-adventure comic book series set 80 years into the future that follows a squadron of young, gifted aviators, who are forced to become Earth’s last line of defense against a menacing race of artificially intelligent villains bent on destroying civilization. I can’t wait to sit down with this beauty.  I even bought a print from him. We all had a good time and can’t wait to attend next year.

Hope you all are having a blessed day!

  1. I was thinking about you guys, figuring you went! Glad it was fun. Can’t believe school started! xxoo

    • Nick has come to think of it as a naturally occurring thing for us. That every year we must go. To be honest, I really enjoy it too. It’s really fun to see the cosplay and I love meeting the artists. Day one was a success so high hopes for the school year.

  2. Oh, that looks like an awesome time!! I am so grateful we met through WOYWW because we have SO MUCH in common 🙂 I’ll be going to the Amsterdam Conic Con with my hubs the first weekend in September and we’re both looking forward to it 🙂
    Hugs, Cheetarah
