On October 28th, I attended Comic Con with my friend for the second year in a row! It was just as much fun as it was the first time around, and I’m honestly so excited for next year. I’m already jotting down ideas for my costume.
Last year, I went as Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter, because there was no way that I was going to pass up the chance to dress up in Hogwarts robes, use a wand, and pretend to be a witch for the day. It was AMAZING. Even though I felt like I was slightly betraying my house (Slytherin) by wearing Gryffindor robes. My friend went as Marty McFly from Back To The Future, and was super annoyed when after we left, she went online and found out that the was a DeLorean there. She did manage to get a picture this year, though, which she was happy about.
This year, I went as Feyre Archeron from the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas. I got to wear a pretty dress and act like a High Lady who had Rhysand, so it was pretty good. Someone even recognised who I was, which happened so much last year, but I wasn’t really expecting this year. You can probably tell from the picture that my friend went as Tinkerbelle, which I thought was great as she is most definitely the right size for her!
The whole day was amazing. I didn’t buy as much stuff this year as I did last year (I had more restraint!) but I did buy a book, ‘Because You Love To Hate Me’ and a few other little bits. I also got some SJM goodies! A poster and a pencil case, which I was very pleased with.
I also got to briefly see Ana whilst we were there, she saw us walking past and quickly ran after me, so it was lovely to see her!
Overall, I had a really good day. I did consider going to the one in May, but I’ve decided against it as it’s exam seasons and I need to be a good student and focus on getting good grades and passing my A Levels so I can go to university next year. But, I’ll definitely be going to the October one.
