Over the weekend I went up to NYC to attend New York Comic-Con. I went with the BFF who was visiting from Chicago! Even though it was very crowded, VERY, we had a good time! We met up with some friends, saw First Date starring Zac Levi, and she got to see a tiny bit of NYC. Marvel announced some new comics including “Black Widow” and “She-Hulk.” I attended a very informative cosplay panel ran by some friends. I even attending a signng for “The Following” and got to say a few words to the cast. Plus I was able to meet Kelly Sue who writes “Avengers Assemble” and “Captain Marvel!” That was a highlight for sure!
As you can see, my group did a few Marvel dresses! You’ll recognize Captain America from my San Diego Comic-Con photos! This time around we added a Thor and Wolverine who look smashing. They were a big hit which is always nice. You might notice a “scribble” on the Wolverine mask. That’s actually Stan Lee’s signature! How epic, right?! The BFF really lucked out with that!
Then come Monday we took a day trip to D.C. with another friend that we made during GISHWHES. It was planned before the Shutdown happened. We made the best of it! The original plan was to hit up all the free things but obviously that wasn’t going to happen. Instead we checked out the National Museum of Crime & Punishment and Madame Tussauds.
Random Fun Fact: I once got into a Twitter argument with the Crime & Punishment Museum over Ted Bundy. They had the wrong date listed on their website for his execution. We kept going back and forth until they finally admitted to being wrong. I got two free passes out of it!
The C&P Museum was pretty empty, which was nice. We could take our time and not feel rushed looking at all the things and stuff. They have a few interactive displays which is always fun! There’s a line up, a prison cell, and a few police simulators too. After wandering around there for a bit, we headed to the Hard Rock Cafe’ for lunch. I will say, it was weird being in D.C.. It was like a ghost town. Even the Metro was pretty empty. I kept waiting for zombies to show up. After lunch we checked out Madame Tussauds where we treated all the figures with the up most respect. Just kidding! What’s the fun in going to a wax museum if you don’t harass the statues?!
After we finished up there we just wandered around the ghost town a bit. We did manage to find one place that was open and took advantage of showing the man who’s boss.
Then because it took me forever to even write this post, I’ve since colored my hair! As you can see above, it’s black. Well, it was black.
TAADAA. It’s already faded a bit, which happens. I’ll probably go back in a week to add more color. We didn’t want to destroy my hair in one day. We want to spread it out overtime! I do like it though and I’m still getting use to it. It’s weird to see a different color after having had black hair for years. I honestly can’t remember the last time my hair was a different color!
Enough rambling. How was your weekend?
