Friday, April 17, 2009 sure has been a while..

Where the heck have I been for the past four months...I've been a VERY busy fellow. Lemme see...I moved from my place of employment (I'm much happier and much closer to home) and I have been looking at houses. I guess you can say that my geek nature has been somewhat suppressed as of late.
I haven't picked up ANY new Valkries, no capsule toys and (gasp) no Cutie Honey-related toys...Man, oh man... What has brought me back to my geek senses? The prospect of hitting Starfest this weekend has got the 'ol geek juices flowin'. Kickin' it for a full weekend surrounded by Trekkies, Star Wars fans and Otaku. Sure, I usually only make it for Saturday's festivities but I cram in as much stuff as I can in one day.

This year, there is a new addition to the convention, ComicFest...since it is new, I'm not quite sure what to expect.
One thing that I do expect to see is this guy. I can't remember his name but I've met him several times at Nan Desu Kan and Starfest. His costumes are always some of the best in the whole convention. Predator, mecha or Spawn this guy pulls it off extremely well.
I also expect to see quite a bit of comic book cosplaying.

As a long-time comic book collector, I'm really looking forward to ComicFest. I want to see if I can find some of those comic book gems that I've been looking for. I'm also looking for some X-Men Origins: Wolverine merchandise geared towards my man, Gambit (Remy LeBeau), I can't wait until May 1st.

Since I don't have to work on Sunday, my Saturday is going to be full of mirth and merriment...
