Thank you so much to Brenda at Hello Houston! Bloggers for the heads up on this awesome event! It was my first visit and I had a great time. The costumes, the people and the awesome booths made it fantastical. My husband and I bought lots of posters and shirts. I was amazed at how cheap everything was. A couple years ago I went to DesignerCon in LA and spent a ton of money on toys, toys that were super pricey and are now just sitting there collecting dust. Smh. I vowed to never do that again. My bank acct thanked me for not going over board Lol!

My two cents..

  • Seeing the famous folk was cool!! We didn't get pictures or signed autographs, but we saw them and did the typical Ohh Ahh Lol! 
  • Some people had legit costumes. Ironman had freaking lights and no Nike's on haha! 
  • The posters were cheap! So of course we bought a crapload and now have no idea where we're going to put it. Dexter is currently hanging on our fireplace haha!
  • Shirts were roughly about $20-25, not too bad. E found a booth that had vintage shirts for $5. He bought 5 Lol!
  • Happy I wore chanclas and not my flats. I knew I would be walking a lot and would be bitching at my feet if I wasn't comfortable.
  • Parking was okay. We could have parked closer in the designated underground lot but the line was super long. Parked a little far and paid $10 for the day.
  • The organizing skills of the folks in charge left a little to be desired. The lines were LONG. There was no way to know which line you needed to be in. I asked a couple of the volunteers where will call was and was given wrong info. Finally figured it out and we got in the right line. Maybe if there were signs, it woulda been easier.
  • The food was expensive. I had BBQ. Links, beans, toast, and potato salad was $12+tax. That didn't include my drink. It was good though, real good. I wish I had some of that potato salad for lunch today haha!
  • I pimped my Jack Skellington backpack :] At these events you never know how much swag you're gonna get and merchandise you're going to buy. I didn't wanna carry it, rather put it in my backpack. Ain't nobody got time for that.

Overall, the three of us enjoyed the event and we're already making plans on what we're going to dress up as next year Lol!
