Go to a local convention event, do it!

A look at some local Northern California con events.

This recap will cover some things you can see and experience at some con events besides meeting and taking pictures with stars. For instance above you will see that I dressed up as The Riddler at one of the events. I was to meet some friends but that didn’t happen, however I ran into Batman. It was fun we walked around and took many pictures with whoever wanted to. Batman knew this family and they are great at cosplay. It for sure will fall into family goals.

​Not pictured, Robin, because of course Robin would get cut off. Check out the family’s amazing cosplay at Crayton Family Cosplay.

I also ran into this awesome piece for lovers like me of The Walking Dead, this is the 2015 San Diego Comic Con exclusive Lucille. ​You can get your very own at Amazon here.

Of if you are a Walking Dead collector on a budget, and we all are, here is a more cost effective option.

At your events you get to see a lot of artists that you might be familiar with, ones you are familiar with but didn’t know they performed the work, or new artists all together. This following picture I couldn’t wait to get home to take a picture and show other people. As, obviously a Walking Dead fanatic I had to buy this. The pictures from this artist was only 2 for $30 and offered many genres, like TV, movies, some celebrities, and sports figures, mainly of northern California teams.

​You can find this amazing piece from Rob Gardner at his website, The Art of Gard.

But that can’t be the only things to keep an eye out for right? You have acquired such amazing pieces but you need to find displays to keep your prized possessions covered while showing off to others. I met a great person named Jason who works at DIsplay-Go, he actually happens to be located up the road from where I work. He has crafted a great system that has a wall mount, that you can change which orientation you want, and an easy set display, with a hingeless dust cover for easy trading. He had cases for hot wheels, Lego mini figures, comics, an LED clock, all sorts of options, take a look at his wares at Display-Go

First you set up your wall bracket.

Next you set in your case and fill with your collection.

​Lastly you put your easy set cover and you are done.

​Here is an overview of some of the different options you can get.

If you have a chance to visit a local con, support local artists and vendors, and see new things I highly recommend it. All this and don’t get me started on all the Funko Pops! I purchased…

I am a wise cracking avid gamer, drawn more to the role playing games with the vast stories and characters. I collect mystery subscription boxes in stages and some lines of Funko pops, and whatever random thing pops into my mind at any given time. I’m a big DC fan, none bigger than Green Lantern as evidenced by my leg tattoo. My biggest fandom is zombies, namely all things Walking Dead. I love everything about zombies and can talk about it for hours. I support my hobbies as an office manager at a sign company. Please don’t be afraid to reach out and talk about all sorts of topics.
