So one of the items on my 40 before 40 list was to attend DragonCon - the comic book convention in Atlanta. I picked that one because it is the closest one to where we live, but in May Carlos took me to Megacon in Orlando - even better because it's a bigger convention, and duh, it's in Orlando.
To be honest I had no idea what I would think about this experience. Although Carlos has turned me into a sci-fi fan, I had no idea what to expect. I'm kind of surprised to say that I had a lot more fun than I expected to have! If you like to people watch, a comic book convention is the ultimate destination. Just seeing everyone dressed up in their different costumes is worth the price of admission. However, in the exhibit halls, there is so much to see and do - Castiél hugged R2-D2, battled with Kylo Ren, and played with Legos. I got to meet John Barrowman, which was awesome, and if we would have wanted to pay $150+ and wait in a 2+ hour line we could have had a picture taken with Stan Lee! (We opted not to do that one.) Carlos was in his element, which was fun to see, and Camila even got to meet Elmo! (Megacon is apparently where you hand your child to anyone dressed as a character!)
All in all, I would definitely go to a con again and next time, I might even dress up!
