Comic ConDoctor WhoFanXHarry PotterMarvelNerdlife

My sisters and I love going to SLC Comic Con! I always have a really great time, and one of my favorite things to do is to go to the celebrity panels! Because this way, even if you can’t pay to get a photo op with ALL of your favorite celebrities at least you’ll be able to see them and hear their stories. ๐Ÿ™‚ A word of advice if you are planning on attending panels, get the SLC Comic Con app that will tell you the most up to date schedule on panels. Here is a list of my top five celebrity panels!

If that’s even possible. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Below is a list of things that I absolutely LOVE!! Come and check out my monthly favorites for March.

Monthly Favorites March 2017

 

Harry Potter Merchandise

A lot of these things I already posted about in my FanX Haul post. But these are my favorite Harry Potter things I got out of my haul.

 

Gringotts coins

I love these little coins! I think that these are probably one of my favorite purchases EVER from Comic Con. Right now I have them displayed on my Harry Potter shelf, and it makes me happy every time I look at them. Eventually I do plan on putting each of the coins on a necklace. Obviously, you can’t get the same ones that I got but I did find them in a lovely boxed set on Amazonย for $17.50. I am planning on getting the boxed set when I put these on a necklace!

Four times I lost my cool and fangirled! The last one was embarrassing…

Comic ConDoctor WhoFanXHarry Potter

I have had an occasion to meet a couple of celebrities, thank you Salt Lake Comic Con! Andย I have have definitely fangirled when meeting some of them. Usually I’m pretty good at keeping it together when I actually meet the celebrity, USUALLY being the key word. It’s when I am walking away that I geek out. Check out these four times I totally fangirled.

Tom Felton

Tom Felton was the second celebrity that I had met, the first being Karen Gillian. ย I was standing in his autograph line for a about four hours and as we were snaking our way to the autograph table I started freaking out. Usually, I can contain myself when I am actually meeting a celebrity. However, I geek out when I am about to meet them or after I have just met them. I was dressed up as Bellatrix Lestrange in her prison costume, which he commented on. ๐Ÿ™‚ As I was walking away I got really excited and almost started hyperventilating. My sister, who was in the the autograph line with me, told me if I passed out she was going to leave me there. ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep reading

Comic ConFanX

Favorite things I've bought at a con

Doctor Who word art

I love that I can find some of my favorite Doctor Who quotes in this picture! The top of the TARDIS says “Bow ties are cool.” I bought this at the first con that I went to, which was FanX 2015. This cost picture cost me $20.00. I also have a Doctor Who Rose and 10, a golden snitch picture, and a Hunger Games symbol picture that I got at a different time. The seller was offering a “buy two, get one free” deal. I made sure to take advantage of that! Keep reading

When Matt Smith came to FanX 2016!!

Doctor WhoFanX

So I am a huge Doctor Who fan, and my favorite doctor is 11. Matt Smith is utterly fantastic! During FanX 2015 Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Billie Piper were in Salt Lake, but I made an incredibly dumb choice and thought that I would be able to buy a ticket to the Ultimate Doctor Who Experience the following day after they became available…. Big mistake! The tickets, of course, were sold out. But when I found out that Matt Smith was coming back to SLC for FanX 2016 I knew that this was my chance! I bought a ticket for his photo op as soon as it became available, I wasn’t about to make the same mistake again! And then I proceeded to wait, impatiently I might add, for FanX 2016 to come around.
