One of my absolute favorite cons returned this past weekend, the weekend before my birthday, like a special gift from the universe. Planet Comicon Kansas City is a well staffed, well organized, fun and friendly convention with something for everyone.
I’ve always wanted to go to a Renaissance Festival type of event, but the timing never seems to work out for me. I’m either unwell, busy, or just unable to attend for whatever reason.
I almost thought this would be the case for Maiden Faire Renaissance Festival this past weekend until I realized they’d also be open Memorial Day, which worked perfectly for me. My mom, my niece, and I all got in the car and drove the short distance to the local ren faire.
The Mooby’s franchise has been brought to life from the world of Kevin Smith’s films, and it’s been touring around the US. Luckily for me, it came to St. Louis, and I was able to continue my journey of following Kevin Smith to the end of the world. (In case you missed them: Meeting Kevin Smith and my experience with The Secret Stash/Comic Book Men.)
You can watch a short video of my Mooby’s experience here.

It has been a long time – entirely too long – since I’ve gotten to spend time at my beloved Universal Orlando. And, with that, a long time since I’ve gotten to attend my favorite Halloween event – Halloween Horror Nights.
Understandably, last year, everyone missed out, because of the pandemic. But HHN 30 looks like it may be happening – and with that, the first house announcement is here!
With 2020 being what it is, I was surprised we’d have an official Batman Day – but here it is! September 19th, 2020. But, unlike normal years, I don’t really have events or excessive travel. Honestly, aside from a shop Batman Day sale – it’s all going to be at home celebrating.
So, what DO you do for Batman Day during a pandemic?
