I had an awesome awesome awesome day today at WonderCon.
Today was my working day, malady and by working, I mean hanging out with my friends, Adrienne and Little Wolf (yes, that’s her name) and my brother Robby while hanging out at the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army table, recruiting members and encouraging all you Southern California Harry Potters to come out to Harry Potter Skate Night. Here is the flyer for that:
It was a SUPER fun day. I met a ton of really awesome people, and hopefully we were able to recruit more members and hopefully people will come to Skate Night. This year is our second annual Skate Night, and I am SO insanely excited about it. There’s Harry Potter soundtrack, Wizard Wrock, and top 40 music playing, free raffles going on, handmade Harry Potter merchandise, butterbeer and just so much more. If you live in the Southern California area, you should definitely check it out!
Moving on though, it was a good day.
The lines to get in and all that: really good. The line/wait time to get badges was SUPER short, and moved really quickly, I was amazed. At Comic Con, Anime Expo, Comikaze, its always such an ordeal to pick up your badges but this was easy cheesy. Even the line to actually get into the convention? It was super long, and yeah it was warm, but we were constantly moving and it didn’t take that long to get in. It was pretty awesome. I always like fast moving lines.
There seem to be a lot of cool people, great artists and vendors there. I didn’t get much time to check it out yet, because I spent most of my day at the LADA table, but I have tomorrow and Sunday to check it all out.
I did, however, get SUPER great news. I got this tweet sent to my phone from Ms. Cassandra Clare herself. And I freaked!
All I could think was, thank GOD I get Cassie’s tweets sent directly to my phone in text messages. I got that and as soon as I read it, I replied as FAST as I could. I sent my email so fast, I’m surprised I didn’t misspell.
A few minutes later, Cassie said she had the emails she needed and that you’d get an email if you got it. I didn’t get anything right away; man, I didn’t get anything for HOURS. But I eventually did get an email…
Yay! I don’t know how I keep getting SO lucky but I was really so so so very excited and I can’t WAIT until tomorrow. I will have lots and lots of fun stuff for you tomorrow, including some panel reviews, what it was like to meet Cassandra Clare (again) and Lily, Jamie and Kevin AND what I think of the NEW trailer!
Happy WonderCon everyone!
