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.
Back in February, for my niece’s birthday, she wanted two things: to go to Animeggroll and buy anime merchandise, and to finally see the St. Louis Aquarium.
We’re all stuck inside, at home, wishing we were somewhere else.
I’ve seen a lot of people recreate their favorite rides or “Disney days” at home, and I’ve also seen a lot of Disney Favorites story templates floating around Instagram. So, I decided I’d like to post about my favorite Disney World attractions, parks, foods, etc. I can’t travel anywhere physically right now, but I can take a trip down memory lane – or should I say, Main Street USA?
So, things are getting a little wild out there. We’re being encouraged to practice social distancing, for the sake of individuals that are particularly susceptible to the virus. With this, many events, restaurants, businesses, etc are being postponed, temporarily closed, etc.
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, and reflect on some of the most notable moments from the last decade:
Meeting Kevin Smith:
You can read the entire thing here, but without a doubt, Kevin Smith is one of the most significant things to happen to me in my entire life.
I think you guys know that I love Rocky Horror Picture Show, based on my post in August (or you can watch the video here), so when my alma mater announced the performance of Rocky Horror the first weekend in October, it immediately became priority on my schedule.
The people behind Cape Comic Con have added two new types of cons to their roster this year: Cape Anime Con, and Cape Fear Con – which is next month.
While I’ve been to cons that have had voiice actors from animes, or merchandise from various anime, I have never been to an anime specific con. But I enjoy anime, and my nieces are getting into it a lot as well, so I figured this would be a great way to test the waters.
I’ve had a love for the Rocky Horror Picture Show for longer than I can recall. There’s something about that movie that brings me joy and makes me think of good times with friends: either watching the movie together, or seeing it performed at our local college and everyone dressing up and having a blast. This movie is special to me.
Four years ago, I was lucky enough to meet Barry Bostwick (aka Brad Majors), and he was an ABSOLUTELY funny and sweet guy.
So imagine my joy, and a bit of surprise, when I learned we were having a local RHPS event, held at Alexander’s at the Factort in Farmington, MO?
It’s been a rough time trying to plan out some farther from home adventures, a big part of it being the struggle with chronic illness and trying to function like normal. Hence why there wasn’t a trip to the Superman Celebration this year, and instead a trip to the hospital.
BUT! Fear not.
I’m planning a trip. A proper trip. Finally.
