I was one blessed geek today! I got to meet the man who has been the voice of Batman for as long as I have been alive: Kevin Conroy! I grew up watching this man’s version of Batman! Just being in his presence made my life complete! It was like meeting the Dark Knight in person!
At WonderCon, I got to meet one of the actors who did the voice for Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse in all of Mexico! I remember watching the Speedy Gonzales cartoons when I was a kid so meeting this man was nostalgic.
Today, I went to WonderCon with my dad and it was a glorious time!
While I was at WonderCon 2017, I got an up close look at the Flash Suit from the CW’s The Flash show. I have seen this suit all the time on the show, but it was rapturous to see it up close and personal like this. I could feel the Speed Force coursing through my veins as I examined this suit.
During WonderCon 2017, I received yet another opportunity to gain inspiration for my fantasy book. I got to wear chainmail even though the piece I wore was meant for someone smaller than me. Still, despite the poor fit, I got to gain much needed information on the weight and flexibility of the chainmail, which will come in handy when I describe the battle scenes in my fantasy book.
During WonderCon 2017, I got to ride an Iron Man themed car called the Renault Twizy, which I saw James May drive in St. Petersburg, Russia in Top Gear. Because I am a behemoth it was a tight fit, but it was fun to be inside a car that was superhero themed.
While doing my fashion show during WonderCon 2017, I got to try on an assassin’s vambrace. It was made of leather and very comfortable on the forearm. I am thinking of drawing inspiration for some of the costumes in my fantasy books.
I participated in a fashion show at WonderCon 2017 in which I tried on an Assassin’s Creed costume. I felt empowered in the costume like I was someone or something else. It was awesome!
I ran into fellow Star Wars fans at WonderCon 2017 who were devout Mandalorian fans. They remembered me from our previous meetings and we had a lengthy conversation in the Mandalorian language of Mando’a. It was great to meet fellow Star Wars fans again.
While promoting my books at WonderCon 2017, I finally found the droids I was looking for. I did my impersonation of C-3PO while mingling with R2 units.
