30 Day Geek Out Challenge: Day 3

Hello and welcome to day three!! I’m currently trying to mass write a few of these so that when I inevitably get to tired to function at some point, I’ll at least have a good amount scheduled.

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 is: What was your favorite convention experience?

I don’t even know how I can narrow it down. I have so many, but I think I have to narrow it down to 2 experiences. I know it’s probably not exactly in line with the prompt, but whatever. At least I’m even remembering to post.

The first has to be my first ever convention. It was Boston Comic Con 2014 and it was my first time traveling to Boston alone and I was nervous for that, but also nervous cause I was meeting John Barrowman.

I remember being in line with my friend and we were at the front ish and so nervous for it to be our turn. I went first and he probably knew how nervous I was because the second he was me he smiled and said “COME IN FOR A CUDDLE!” and he gave me the absolute best hug ever. Then we went on and attended his panel – which ironically is the most viewed video on my Youtube channel – and laughed the entire time.

The second will have to be meeting Sebastian Stan at Rhode Island Comic Con 2017. I will NEVER forget it because I was an absolute sobbing mess.

Sebastian Stan is the celebrity love of my life. The man can do no wrong. I cried when they announced he was going to the convention and bought my ticket and my pass to meet him later that same day. My friends were excited for me, hell even my family was excited for me. They knew what it meant to me.

And sure, I was anxious the entire time and I was a mess – but god dammit he hugged me really well. And then I cried on the floor for 20 minutes. My friend got it on video – she’s very proud and shows everyone we meet.

I hope you enjoyed my two convention stories! See ya tomorrow!

    These are some great con memories! I’m not sure I’d be able to pick just one! Every con has something that stands out.

      That was my problem! I always have good things to say about cons and have a good memory at each one so it was really hard to narrow down.
