Visiting Texas: Comicpalooza 2015 (Recap)

Greetings my Superhero Butterflies! Comic, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Anime fans were out in numbers for the annual Texas International Comic Convention known as Comicpalooza that took place this past weekend at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas and I have to start by saying, Comicpalooza 2015 was AWESOME!!!! This was my third consecutive year attending Comicpalooza and I'm super glad I did, I really had a blast all three days. I didn't capture anything as spectacular as last year's Star Wars Imperial March but none the less it was still pretty kick-ass.
Did you know there's a Comicpalooza App? I'm not sure if the Comicpalooza app was around last year but I discovered it this year, downloaded it and put that baby to use. The app really came in handy for planning my day at Comicpalozza on the go. I used the app to take note of all the cool exhibits, guest speakers, book signing, and photo opps I wanted to check out; I didn't do nearly as much stuff as I had hoped to. I really wanted to see Stan Lee, that didn't happen but there's always next time right?

Moving on, I sampled a new vodka while at the event; Virus Vodka. I thought the drink was ok from the small amount I sampled, it had a nice taste and texture. I'll have to look for it the next time I'm in the liquor store so I can really try it out and tell you guys what I think. I also found out while at Comicpalozza that there's a really cool superhero movie coming out next year, Superman vs. ...guess who? I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

There was so much to see and do, my kid had a blast. There was this guy in this Texan/Ironman kind of thing I thought was pretty cool and Lightsabers!? I considered getting one but my budget said no lol, maybe I'll pick one up next year or order one online from Amazon. Besides Lightsabers, I've been researching steel bone corsets for waist training purposes so seeing at the event was a pretty neat coincidence and how cute was Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy? Fresh Prints, the printing company that printed the "my super power is blogging" shirt that I wore to Comicpalozza also had a booth at the event. Also saw the Mach 5 car from Speed Racer, bad-ass right!?

Althought I had the erge to blow my budget wide-open, I didn't. Instead, I only picked up a few small items like this nail art nailpolish from Nail Candy, a few random buttons (I was really geeked about my Dr. Who button), and because I have this thing for weird socks...I picked up a pair of socks from Femlin. Anyway, hope you enjoy the photos and see ya at next year's convention. Visit my Facebook page to view all photos from the 2015 Comicpalooza.
