Was a bit disappointed coz not many people were cosplay-ing on the day that we went, which was the second/last day of the event. Saw on the news that the hardcore cosplayers mostly came on the first day cisss! Whatever happened to the 'save the best for last' concept, people?!
Aww...don't you just feel like giving the lost Stormtrooper a hug?
Comic Con is coming to Dubai yo! I'm not really a fan of comics or video games, I'm just excited to see people dressing up in costumes, aka the cosplayers (short for 'costume play' - a new word learned 2 days ago hehe). Based on what I've seen in movies and TV series, some people, especially those die-hard comic fans (haha teringat The Big Bang Theory peeps) who attend these types of conventions take cosplay-ing pretty seriously, so THAT should be very interesting to see - can't wait!
On another note, Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill's Lucas Scott) was supposed to be one of the Hollywood celebrities to make a special appearance in this event - which led me to scream and hyperventilate for about 10 straight minutes. (Yes, I'm not ashamed to admit that I watched the super corny One Tree Hill series quite religiously up till season 6. Chad didn't come back for season 7, so what's the point of continuing watching?)
However, after checking out his Twitter to find out the exact timing he'll be making his appearance (and which hotel he'll be staying at so I can stalk bump into him there hehe), I discovered that due to a scheduling conflict, he will NOT be coming to Dubai after all - which again, led me to scream, this time in frustration, for about 10 straight minutes. Bloody *%#*#^%$!
Oh well, I guess the bright side of this is I can just relax and enjoy my time walking around superheroes and supervillains nanti instead of constantly be on the lookout for Hollywood celebrities - which can be quite tiring gak actually. It's not easy being a groupie bebeh =p
"Friendship really is a two-way street. You select your mates, single them out. But they have to do the same for you. Otherwise you're a stalker. It's a fine line."
"I guess as you get a little older, your social group becomes a little more focused. A little more honed. And with it, a little more reliable. Trusted. Needed. As people drift away, or move off, or get married, have kids, emigrate, you're lucky to hang on to the people you do."
Shout out to my reliable, trusted, and most importantly, needed friends! (You know who you are *wink*!)
