Adventures at Rhode Island Comic Con 2019

Hello everyone! A couple of years ago, I posted about my experience at Rhode Island Comic Con.  The TL;DR of that experience was that my feet hurt a lot, it was super crowded, and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to.  Of course, the flip side was that it’s such a cool experience and after my experience at BookCon earlier this year, I had been dancing around with the idea of trying the Con again. Long story short, a friend convinced me that a group of us should go et voila!  We ended up with a three day […]

Sooo, I did a thing. A couple months ago, I let slip that my brother talked me into going to BookCon 2019 this year.  I’d heard a little about BookCon and other bookish conventions through Twitter, but I’m not deep into those spots in the blogosphere, so it wasn’t a desperate wishlist item for me.  I thought I would casually go and check it out, but after I started to research, it became readily apparent that this was gonna be some Comic Con level stuff, and I needed to up my game. Rather than just having a brag fest here […]

Lords and Ladies, I Present: King Richard’s Faire

Y’all may remember that back in June, I was bemoaning the fact that I had missed ren faire season.  May and June are prime time for a lot of the smaller renaissance faires in New England because there’s no point in competing with all the county fairs in the fall. That is, of course, unless you are a Really Big Renaissance Faire.  There are a couple big ren faires within driving range of where I live, and my husband and I have been toying with the idea of hitting up King Richard’s Faire in Carver, MA for a while now.

My Day at Rhode Island Comic Con!

Last Saturday, a small group of us went up to Rhode Island Comic Con.  We went last year and it’s SO COOL but also a big bundle of stress.  I remember going last year and telling myself “Okay, so the panels are awesome, but if we ever go again, can we NOT go on Saturday?!”  So of course, we went on Saturday again. RICC is one of the biggest fan conventions on the east coast, right after NYCC.  I live a lot closer to Rhode Island, so that’s my con of choice.  Like SDCC and NYCC, it’s huge.  It has […]
