X-Men X-Perience Live, Global Premiere in NYC

16 May

Let me just start by saying: WOW!

After a night out and sleeping 4 hours to get to the Javits by 6am, I was not prepared to line-up for 10 hours and remain standing for+10… Was it worth it? TOTALLY WORTH IT.Fun times in line with Ray from BecauseCowsMakeDelicious!

First off: I would like to say I was in line behind one of my favorite alt. models/cosplayers, Cin’ Von Quinzel (on FB), and she looks as beautiful as she does on pictures. I was too out of it and shy to say anything. However, now I wish I had asked for a pic; She dressed as Mystique and she looked amazing. I really liked all the cosplayers I saw at the event- Bishop looked great, too.

In line we were given the new flavored Twinkies, pink and blue (which was the one I had), and RedBull– one of my favorite drinks ever… and yes, I know it’s pretty unhealthy, but oh-so-deelish! Thank goodness for that sweet nectar of the gods, it was the one thing that helped me stand and cheer for so long. YEAAAAAAHHH!

The place “red” actually blue carpet was located in the Javits looked GREAT! From the huge X’s hanging from the ceiling to the huge screen projecting 3D images of the characters… the lights, the music, the people. It was all so beautiful. We got some swag (t-shirts and posters) and then it was trivia time with Skeery Jones from Z100- so much stuff signed by Hugh Jackman. Ray won a poster signed by him. Let’s say the questions were a tad off, but we had a great crowd that stuck by their own. I loved the spirit and sense of familiarity in the environment, I felt so happy being there!

I was too busy taking pictures of Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence to remember to ask them to sign my poster, but I did get Booboo Stewart’s and producer Lauren Shuler Donner’s. Wootsies!

Turns out that the first 500 fans to get to the event would get complimentary badges to watch the movie that same day. I was dehydrated and thought I was going to crash and sleep through when I entered, but man, was I wrong. ITWASSOAWESOME! I won’t spoil it for anyone, but I need to say that it was just everything I hoped for and even more so, and I just couldn’t get enough of it. *hearts, winks, and all fangirl stuff* ❤

Ray and I wrote a report on the event for Bleeding Cool. You can read it here.

It was a perfect day with the perfect ending despite the little bumps, which is bound to happen on long days. As I write this I feel as if I’m reliving that day and it feels so great– I mean, nothing better than bitter morning coffee, yummy hotdogs, twinkies, fries, redbull, great company and a cast of the most dreamy and gorgeous people to make a day wonderful.

NYCC Part 1: Swag Warning!

17 Oct

After much debating on how to start my rambles on Comic-con, I decided to break it down to different posts and today I will show off the swag. Just to warn you: most of my swag consists of books. I LOVE BOOKS! Which means: I couldn’t stay away from the publishers… except for when I had to go and cover panels.

Let me preface it, though, by saying that there were a couple of things I really REALLY wanted: Greg Horn‘s Star Sapphire Wonder Woman and Joker & Harley prints, the Super Saiyan Scouters (red specially), Sailor Moon FigureArts action figure (which I was not able to get *tears*), a couple of Michael Bank’s prints from Sugar Fueled, Amanda Conner‘s Ame-Comi Wonder Woman and the new Harley Quinn prints, and a Tony S. Daniel sketch among a few other things. But enough with this, here are the pics.

CHOZEN promotional item they were throwing to the audience right after the panel– I still don’t know what it is for though.

And I got to take a picture at the BLACK SAILS Starz booth– I really liked how it came out.

This was it for the swag file this year. I loved meeting the authors that were lovely enough to sign my copies and talk to me. They were all so sweet. I got to meet and talk to: Andrea Cremer, Erin Morgenstern (I just loove her writing), Sarah Fine, Joseph Wallace, and Sean Howe…

Also thanks Greg Horn and Dave (his assistant) for being so cool and making my Saturday so amazing- FANGIRL ACHIEVEMENT: UNLOCKED! I’m so happy I got to meet him and Amanda Conner, who is the sweetest artist ever! As well as Michael Banks from Sugar Fueled. Also got to talk to J. Michael Straczynski, Michael Golden, Fred Van Lente, Ryan Dunlavey, and Doug Braithwaite. Thank you so much for making my NYCC 2013 Fangirl experience so wonderful. ❤
