New York Comic Con #NYCC (my highlights)
Today was the first day of New York Comic Con. It was a great, productive and very tiring day. Productive days are always draining but satisfying,therefore they're worth it.
I didn't want to keep my lovely readers which I adore and appreciate so much waiting, so I decided to highlight some of the things I did today. I will make more detailed post later in the week including a giveaway!
I'd like to cover the obvious first. Besides going to any specific panel or booth, there is always the general atmosphere of Comic Con. If you have been to any Comic Con before, I'm sure you know what I mean. Everyone is in their zone. Here are some cool photographs I took.
I met with Jessica Smiley from Mimobot. She was an amazing, lovely person and very helpful and informative. I will be doing a more detailed post talking about these adorable USB memory flash drives below AND I WILL BE GIVING AWAY A 4GB one away as well courtesy of Mimobot. Thanks Guys!
I attended a Lolita 101 Panel. It was extremely informative. I really understood the Aesthetic behind Lolita inspired fashion even better then I did before. I will be going more into detail with this later as well.
Below you can see the booth for Okamiden. It's a really neat game where you literally draw color into your world (in the game world that is) Eric Monacelli was lovely to speak with and encouraged me to email him if I had any questions. Maybe I will try to maybe get a Q and A going. They have lost wolf flyers hanging all over Comic Con to promote the game, it's so cute.
I also went to a Bill Plympton panel. I must admit I wasn't very familiar with his work although I had heard great things, but he really won me over. He showed clips of his upcoming work and talked about his movie Idiots and Angels which you can see NOW in the IFC theatre. The New York Times is calling his movie "RELENTLESS AND BRILLIANT". If you would like The New York Times review you can click here. Plympton said during his panel, that he will be in the IFC theater everyday when his movie plays and he's willing to talk to anyone that would like to learn more about him and his work. This Oscar nominated man is extremely approachable which is something I ALWAYS value in people. Spread the word on his film.
Comic Con is so much to take in. I will be updating all through the week. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments or email me personally. Also Follow Me On Twitter for more #NYCC updates .
