Aquaman just hit theaters the 21st, and within 8 days, I have seen it three times in theaters. To say it exceeded my expectations is an understatement. And coming from a girl that used to mock Aquaman – I’m legitimately ready to grab some trade paperbacks and read some Atlantean adventures.

Cons, cons, and more cons.

For the last month, roughly, I’ve been an exceptionally busy gal on the weekend. Between the first weekend of February until the first weekend of March, I’ve been at some sort of con every other weekend:

  • Wizard World St Louis
  • Planet Comic Con (in Kansas City)
  • STL Comics Winter One-Day

HOLY EXHAUSTION, BATMAN! My poor wallet hurts.

However, it was a pretty fun to have so many, so close together, to compare how different they felt. Different levels and experiences, etc. So, while I plan to post about each one individually, I’d like to take a moment to compare the three.

Star Wars and the Power of Costume

20120215_202756As some of you may remember, during the summer, I had a short notice trip to the New York / New Jersey area. I was only going to be there for a few days, and didn’t have much wiggle room to do extra stuff. But I had one day I could spare to return to New York, and I happily made a nerdy itinerary for that day.

Among the things on my list: Star Wars and the Power of Costume at Discovery Times Square, where I could see screen used costumes from the movies.

Now, I took LOADS of pictures, because there were SO MANY COSTUMES. However, I think I’m just going to highlight some favorites. So, let’s begin!

Gods and Monsters

 

Last fall, during my most recent trip to Orlando, Florida, I had a brilliant idea. I decided that, on our last day in town, before we started our trip home, we’d locate this shop I’d heard about called Gods & Monsters.

Now, at the time we went, Gods & Monsters was located in the Artegon, which was one of the coolest mall type buildings I’ve ever been to. However, it unfortunately closed in January of 2017, which meant Gods & Monsters – among other stores and shops – had to relocate. Now, Gods & Monsters has a lease with¬†Orlando Crossings Mall, and has since reopened, I believe.

Anyway…

I knew I’d heard glorious things about the size of this place and the HUGE amount of nerdy delight it contained. But I was still massively overwhelmed the moment I stepped inside.

There is such a HUGE spectrum of amazing things inside this shop. While they do have quite a few current books, they don’t really have much in terms of comic back issues. HOWEVER, that’s totally fine, given the massive amount of other things they did have.

There were older and newer collectibles and toys, ranging from sci fi to fantasy, comic related to horror, etc. Honestly, I wish I would have spent less at Universal and Disney, so I could have made a massive haul in Gods & Monsters – because there were some treasures I desperately wanted.

But aside from just having loads of cool things, they also had a gaming area set up in the back, if I remember correctly, as well as some insanely cool decor going on. My particular favorite? Anything and EVERYTHING Batman related. The Arkham games themed check out counter area was PHENOMENAL. GodsandMonsters2

If you’re in the area, go check out Gods & Monsters at their new location. I’ll be heading back for sure the next time I make my way to Orlando!

Have you ever visited Gods & Monsters? Have you seen the new location yet? Comment below and let me know!
