This summer I attended my first ever Comic Conventions. Which is kindof crazy that at the ripe ole age of 25 that I’ve never been to one. Especially seeing as I am somewhat of a superhero fanatic. So attending two this year was absolutely GREAT!
So, the first convention, Dublin City Comic-Con was held in Dublin’s state of the art convention centre, and it was such an incredibly fun experience. So many incredible costumes, so many wallet emptying shops. I swear, my eyes were probably twinkling so much at all the amazingness there was. Which is probably the reason why I forced my friend to come back to a second con. But not before committing to making my own costume.
So as the title suggests, the costume I chose was Robin (Batman’s occasional sidekick). In a way I wanted to make the costume my own, so in making it, I added a number of my own tweaks along the way. But overall I was so thrilled with how it turned out.The absolute highlight being when a small kid made his dad bring him over to say hi to me.
I also may have purchased a life-size Mudkip plush. Which is kindof 50 shades of AWESOME.
So all in all, I give the whole con-experience a 4 out of 5 stars. If you have any interest whatsoever, it’s an incredibly fun place to interact with like minded people.
I shall write soon with many more tales of adventure and fun.
