I was very excited about attending my first show. I have heard nothing but great things about this convention and once I told my friends I was attending, my schedule was quickly booked. I flew to Florida early Saturday morning and briefly relaxed at my hotel room before heading out for a Lois Lane/Superman photo shoot with Danny Kelley. After the shoot I walked the convention floor where I ran into friends and met many high profile cosplayers I admire and respect such as Jonathan Carroll and Margie Cox. I was also introduced to legendary comic book artist, George Perez. After touring the floor I had dinner with Candy and the girls then we got ready for the Arkham Nights party. The party was presented by Moshi-Moshi and held at Club Backstage. My girlfriends and I attended the party as Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Batgirl with a male friend joining us as an Arkham inmate.
On Sunday I went to the show as Wonder Woman which was recently upgraded by Candy. A new gold layer was added to the corset and I literally squealed with delight when I saw what a difference it makes. I hung out at the Hero Initiative booth and posed for photos. I met several of my followers on Twitter and Facebook and one of them introduced me to his 5 year old son who was dressed as a Minion from the film "Despicable Me." I left to meet my friends and we made the rounds around the convention center where I spotted and chatted with friend and artist Eric Basaldua. Candy made quite a splash with her debut of her Dazzler cosplay! After the show we had dinner, I packed my things and made my way to the airport to return home. Duties as a preschool teacher were beckoning and I had mandatory training on Monday. To say I was exhausted is quite an understatement but I took Tuesday off to rest.
