Hello everyone and welcome to day 4! A bit late, a bit rushed, but here we are. I wanna say thank you again to anyone who’s liked or commented on the past posts – it feels so good honestly.
(Not to mention its the most traffic i’ve had in months…… my own fault)
If you want to follow along with this challenge go read my introduction post here as well as all the prompts. Let’s get started!
Today’s prompt is: Worst convention experience.
I really don’t have a worst…. I just have one that I wouldn’t want to re-live. And that was my second convention ever.
Rhode Island Comic Con 2014. I did a fun little cosplay of Team Free-will with my friends and was going to meet Mark Shepard from Supernatural. And I did and it was amazing.
The thing about this particular convention was they had SO MANY PEOPLE there. This was the year that Carrie Fisher was supposed to go (but got sick and cancelled), William Shatner was there, a good chunk of people from Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy people were there….. etc.
The convention didn’t anticipate the amount of people that were supposed to be there and stopped letting people back in after a while because it was too crowded. And it was.
The photo op area was insane…. you were basically in a mob to meet people and you honestly didn’t even know if you were in the right line cause no one told us if we were. People were stepping over each other and on each other and to me, it was a nightmare. The entire floor was cramped because it simply wasn’t enough.
