Weekend Recap: IG's of HeroCon!

Posted By: Leah

We had sooo much fun this weekend at HeroesCon in Charlotte (yes I call it HeroCon). I am working on editing the pictures (there are some awesomely hilarious ones of me and people dressed up as superheros and inappropriate pictures too of course!) but here's a quick recap via my Instagram! 

Friday night by PURE CHANCE we wondered into a Stan Lee autograph signing VIP event. (Stan Lee is like the George Lucas of Comic Books. He's responsible for all the Marvel Super Hero's like Spider Man, Avenger characters (Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Hawk Eye, etc.) Tell your husband's and they'll be impressed. PS- he's the guy in white with white hair and his back turned.

Gav dressed as Mario and I dressed as Hello Kitty (of course!) We were adorable... except it did creep me out when middle-aged men would stop us to take photos of Gav. Not sure how I feel about that, but I did dress him up. Trying to think only good thoughts on this one.

BF, Gav and I parked away from uptown and rode the Lynx (train) in. I pretty much adore this pic BF took, and look at Gav eating Sun Chips on the train!

Having never been to a comic book convention, I didn't really know what I wanted to look at first. BF's been to a zillion and just sat back and let Gav and I go where we wanted and followed us. I was clearly on a HK mission in this one.

Found her! Yes, I may have scared this poor artist when I started screaming and pointing. But all he draws is HK on sides of ABC liquor boxes as different superhero's! These were the five I purchased ($25 total, a great deal, right?) L to R - Robocop (the handle is a cutout!), Wonder Woman, Han Solo, Princess Leia (in her slave gold bikini costume), and Cobra Commander. Right now they are on the mantle in my living room. I want to get some Ikea floating shelves and properly display these ASAP. freaking LOVE these!

Speaking of Cobra Commander, check out BF's shirt that day.... I KNOW! Best picture of BF & HK ever! (ok probably the only pic, but this is so awesome!)

Why do I look freaked out? I had on Necomimi. I will do an ENTIRE post on these. They were $100 for the cat ears. They operated on BRAIN WAVES! Yup... there was a sensor on my forehead and one clipped to my other ear. Depending on how I was feeling, the ears moved. Gav had on a set too. It was a trip!

The pictures on the camera are much better, but this was Gav and I as action figures. From far away and at the correct angle it looks like we're in packaging. It's adorable! I hope you all had an awesome weekend. Have you ever been to ComiCon or another comic book convention?


  1. This looks like a TON of fun! I love his little Mario outfit & your whiskers took the cake :). Those pics are nice too! I have NEVER been to something like this before... but it looks like you had fun! Good!

  2. Looks like you had so much fun! Now i want to go to a comic book convention and scope out HK things! lol. You and Gav look so cute!

  3. Wow! So much fun! I want to go to one of those things.

  4. I am so in love with the pic of you and Mr. Man eating SunChips (I guessed Cheetoes, but I was close, at least!) Thanks for linking up, you're a pal!


  5. omg... can these photos be any cuter!? :)
