I always wanted to meet a transformer…
2013 was the year that I attended my very first Comic Con. I had heard about it for years, and knew it was a really cool event, but I never really had reason to attend until this year. Why this year? Well 2013 was the 20th anniversary of The X-Files, a show that changed my life in the 90s, ignited my obsession with Mulder and Scully, and made me “want to believe”. It still remains one of the most brilliant, and groundbreaking shows of Television history. I am still in awe that I got the chance to meet both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in person, and got to thank them for their creativity and entertainment. They were both extremely sweet, friendly, and warm. To be honest, I think the real “X-File” is how they look more amazing now then they did 20 years ago! (The cigarette smoking man may have something to do with this) 😉
Comic Con in general was a ton of fun. It’s sort of like Halloween, except everyone is a super hero, or comic book character. My boyfriend Chris and I had a blast walking around and seeing everything. I hope you enjoy the photos! I wore bright colored sunglasses, and an embellished clutch for the day. It seemed fitting. Maybe next year I’ll go in costume. 😉
Let me know in the comments if you have ever attended a Comic Con!
