This time next week I’ll be heading to Chicago for C2E2! If you know me, you know I love this convention and it’s one I attend pretty much each year. It’s just the perfect size and not overly crazy like some of the other conventions out there. The main reason I love going though is the fact it’s Ground Zero for my friend group. I get to see my friends from Chicago and St. Louis plus this year Katy is flying over from the UK! I’m really excited about seeing everyone and just catching up and not worrying about anything. After looking over the schedule, there are a few panels that caught my eye but nothing that I have to attend. I only have one photo op right now and that’s with Charlie Cox from “Daredevil.” I’m very excited about that and still trying to figure out what to wear!
Saturday I have a cosplay photoshoot set up for Catwoman. I’m nervous about finally wearing her. I know it’ll be fine but you know how brains are. I feel confident in the photographer that I picked though. Her rates were fair and her portfolio looked solid. Plus I feel more comfortable just because she’s a woman. Sorry, not sorry. I hope the weather keeps it together though and the rain stays away. I’d love to be able to take some photos outside. It’ll be fine either way!
One thing that’s new this year is the hotel. Normally we stay at the Hyatt but this year we picked the new Marriott. It almost feels like cheating in some weird way. I mean, we’ve used the Hyatt for years and they’ve always been super good to us! But it’ll be fun to try a brand new hotel and hopefully the bar/lounge areas won’t be as crowded. That was the only downfall of the Hyatt. It was party central and the last few years they were doing construction on the lobby/bar areas which meant it was even worse than normal. Plus the wait for the elevators. I’ll be curious to see if over time the after hour events get split between the two hotels.
Are any of you heading to C2E2? Or maybe another convention soon? Let me know!
