You may have recently read my post on Fan Expo St. Louis, or even watched my video on my channel, and fully be aware of how exciting it was for me to finally reunite with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes for the first time since I almost died in 2015.
But I figured it’d be nice to give the most special part of my weekend it’s own post, considering everything Kevin means to me.
To say I was excited for Planet Comicon 2022 is a severe understatement. This is one of my absolute favorite cons to attend, and I had a pretty packed, planned out schedule for the entirety of our trip – not just the con itself.
It has been a wild few years, but cons are making a comeback, and with it – people are venturing to said cons.
Whether you’ve never been to a con, or you’ve been to twenty – there’s always new things to learn. So I’m going to share with you some of the tips, tricks, and generalized advice I’ve absorbed after several years of con-going.
“We all love a good mystery. On Feb. 4, join us to solve a mystery at the Saint Louis Science Center! The evening will include a building-wide Clue-style mystery game, trivia, a feature presentation on the science behind solving crimes, and educational activities that will require the use of your “little grey cells.” End the evening with a screening of an Agatha Christie film favorite.”
The week of Christmas, my nieces needed to do a bit of last minute shopping, so I decided it was a good time to check out some local businesses we could support, as well as giving you all a new place to check out if you’re in the area.
So, we went to The Factory in Farmington, Missouri to check out Aesop’s Treasury.
During Planet Comicon 2021 in August, we decided to venture out for some dinner and see a little of Kansas City while we were there. And of course we chose one of our favorite things to get: Chinese food.
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.
