Which is actually a lot crazier this year than normal. That’s because I’m only home for a day between the time I get home from London and the time I leave for Chicago. It’s not really even a full day. I think I land around 2:30PM on Wednesday, and then leave for Chicago on Thursday around 7:30PM on Thursday. And I have work on Thursday. That means once I get home it’s nothing but doing laundry and throwing stuff back into a suitcase! I do plan to try and have some stuff (cosplay related) packed and ready to go before I leave for vacation.
But back to C2E2. I am beyond excited for it. It really is one of my favorite conventions, and I know I’ve said it a million times. It’s just the perfect size and mix. I like the convention center that hosts it and the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place (host hotel) is amazing. It’s connected to the convention center which makes going back and forth a breeze. Plus the hotel bar is THE place to be after hours. And you never who who you’ll run into in the lobby. We ran into Timothy Omundson last year!
Who knew he was Team Hydra? As far as guests go, I cannot WAIT to meet Hayley Atwell. When I saw she was announced I flipped my shit. I don’t care what it costs, but I will be doing a photo op with her. Hopefully she has a panel as well. I plan on doing a photo with Stan Lee too because honestly, who knows how much longer he’s going to be traveling to conventions. I’m excited for Skottie Young and Chip Zdarsky on the comic side of things. I always stop by Skottie’s table and who doesn’t love giving Chip a hard time? Plus Artist Alley at C2E2 is always filled with top talent and I’m looking forward to adding some sketches to my sketchbook!
I know some of YOU are going to be there as well! If you see me walking around, be sure to say hey! If you follow me on Twitter, feel free to use that in order to find me. I know I’ll probably be at the hotel bar during after con hours. I’ll be wearing Derby!Widow and USO!Hawkeye. I just don’t know which days yet!
Now if we can just get some news on the panel schedule, that would be great!
