5 Fandom Friday: 5 Favorite Things I Own That I Bought at Cons

Five Fandom Friday

I’m not one to spend hundreds of dollars at cons each time I attend, but I do like to snag at least one awesome thing. I’ve probably attended about 10 cons in my life as I only really started going to them after college. Here are my five favorite things that I bought at cons (so far!).

Abe Lopez Batman Haunted Mansion

This signed “Haunted Arkham Asylum” print by Abe Lopez. It’s pretty much the best thing ever. I snagged it at Wondercon this year. It combines two of my favorite things: the Batman universe and Disney’s The Haunted Mansion ride!!

Pugs Book

I am completely in love/obsessed with pugs and I had to have this book when I saw it at Comikaze last year. It features a really cute and derpy pug, doing what they do best. Being cute and derpy. 😀 The author also signed it and made a small drawing on the inside. You can check out Dave Kellett’s stuff here.

Camille Rose Garcia 1st Edition Signed Snow White and Print

Camille Rose Garcia has been my favorite pop artist since high school when I saw her work featured in Nylon magazine. I have her first art book and the Alice in Wonderland book she illustrated that is like this Snow White one. I have always wanted to own one of her prints and this deal was pretty much the closest I could get currently. Snagged a signed first edition of her Snow White book along with a signed print at Comic-Con this year!

David Mack Kabuki The Alchemy

I met David Mack at Miami Supercon back in 2010. I was wandering through Artist’s Alley and his watercolor work caught my eye. I told him I thought his work was really beautiful and he was super sweet in response. I bought this version of Kabuki and he threw in a couple of the comics, signing everything. David is one of the most generous artists  out there. He’s featured in the documentary Temple of Art, which I am proud to have been a supporter of via Kickstarter. This year, I found him at Comic-Con and he signed my copy of Fight Club 2. He’s also very responsive on Twitter, which is awesome.

Tardis Blueprint Tank Top

Bought this Tardis tank from GeekyU at Comikaze and am super in love with it. I love nerdy tank tops and would much rather wear them than t-shirts, especially since I live in Southern California. The design of this shirt is really cool because it’s in that blueprint style, which is kinda popular right now. I’ve received lots of compliments on it too!

I’d love to see your favorite con purchases! Link me in the comments below!
