My birthday! Celebrating 24 years my life the best way possible by going to New York Comic Con. This was the last year to do so but I celebrated the past 4 years at NYCC so I’m sad to see the opportunity go 😦
Unfortunately, I woke up sick as a dog. As I nursed my Cinnamon Apple spice tea, I took my time getting ready and went to meet up with my friend.
After arriving, it was such a wonderful experience. I endured the sickness and just took my time walking around. I met up with my sister who made an awesome Stevonnie cosplay and a Pumpkin to go with it.
Later on, I finally had the chance to try the Defender IPA beer that is offered at the Javits. For some reason, I had never drank at NYCC before so I was stoked for this. I actually ended up finished this drink while in line for the bathroom. Those were probably everyone’s biggest complaints.
Altogether, the day was awesome. I scored so much great stuff and definitely had an awesome birthday. I got this necklace (picture below) with the moon that is on my wedding date. It glows in the dark and is honestly a great quality.
After leaving the con, I headed home with my parents. Later on my husband took my out to my favorite place, Texas De Brasil. An amazing churasscaria joint where the food is always impeccable and I eat until I’m full. I’m a huge fan of buffets so I always jump on the opportunity to eat.
Now, on to the haul. I honestly am not a big FunkoPOP liker (I know, their eyes are just so freaky) but this Fluttershy one was screaming my name! I only ended up with 4 books this day, but I’m totally fine with that because my TBR shelf is overflowing.
All in all, I’m super happy with how the day turned out. I just wish they cut the Anime Fest crap out next year because it was honestly so much sadness to see my favorite booths being moved to a totally different location.
I look forward to seeing some of you at AnimeNYC next month! Let the con hype LIVE ON!
