Walker Stalker Con Dallas

This past Sunday my mom treated me to Walker Stalker con… and let me just say it was a blast!!!

Comic cons have become such a fad that often when I go to con I am having to shuffle through crowds, getting yelled at by security for god knows what, waiting in two hour lines, honestly my desire to go to comic con is further proof I am a lunatic because who the world wants to wait in a line to meet a person??? I do.  Obviously.

So imagine my immediate delight when I realized that the typical con experience would not occur at Walker Stalker con.  It was calm, organized and a total blast.  I was not getting yelled at by security for taking photos, I was able to walk around freely and I was able to enjoy con with my mom with no drama.

I will go back next year. 

As the title of this convention would indicate it is a Walking Dead themed con.  I am very new to the Walking Dead bandwagon, but I have quickly become a fan! Don’t spoil anything I am just now about to start season 4!!!

Still I was excited about meeting two people.  Emma Bell because I am HUGE Dallas fan #BringDallasBACK and the governor.  Mom and I walked araound and came up to Emma Bell, no one was at her table so I quickly went up and struck up a conversation.

She is AWESOME.  Seriously, not only is she beautiful she was amazing.  She complimented my eye shadow, which I admit threw me for a  minute, I have never been complimented by a celebrity, please give me a minute while I stoke my ego. . .

Ok I am done, but I am pretty sure I will be talking about the time Emma Bell said she liked my eye shadow for the foreseeable future…

I learned she is about to have few indie films out (count me in!) and that she is upset about Dallas too!!! Seriously way to leave us hanging TNT!!!!! She has am immediate fan because she was beyond nice and down to earth which I always love seeing in a celeb.

Seriously!!! how cute is she?

Afterwards mom and I went and grabbed some pop corn, we sat in the Breaking Bad panel for a bit and we have decided it is time to start watching Breaking Bad (I know, bad nerd) but there is just way too much good TV and just not enough time to watch it all!

Mom and I had already gotten our tickets to meet the governor, (mom was seriously excited!!! I love when she gets excited about meeting a celeb, last time I saw her that excited was when we met Danny Glover) and got in line.  We waited maybe 20 minutes and it was finally our turn.

I just got a picture, I didn’t have anything to get signed.  Mom bought an awesome drawing of “The governor” and got that signed.   I took my picture, he was awesome.  He was tall!! I had my 5 inch boots on (I was trying to look like some awesome zombie slayer… cause you know they totally wear boots!) and he was still taller than me.

It was my first big nerd moment of the year, and the perfect way for me to kick my con season off!

Who are you hoping to meet in 2015?  Have you had your first nerd moment of the year?

Binge Watching Bitten

So with my upcoming travel plans in 2015, it is not really a secret that I have myself on lockdown spending wise.

However, as I am a girl that needs entertainment or I will get bored I have been utilizing my mother’s netflix subscription and binging on TV.  I also have been using the heck out of my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

As I am not going anywhere until February, it is safe to say that my blog will most likely be filled with TV, movie and book reviews as adventures will be in short supply.  So this is me giving your fair warning.

I will also share craft projects, because well I have a lot of unfinished projects that I will get to work on.

I have to keep myself busy, because traveling is expensive. (well when you go on vacations anyway)

So as usual I digress, I started Bitten last week and I finished it within 48 hours.  Shameful, but I do not apologize because I loved the show.

It is my understanding the book is based on a book series and I have not read the series.  So I am unable to confirm or deny if it follows the books or not, all I can say about the TV series is a LOVE IT.

I am so ready for Season 2.

The show centers around Elena who was changed by her lover Clay into a werewolf, and she is disgusted by what she is.  Since she hates what she is she has left her home behind and ran off to Toronto where she has a new human boyfriend.

As luck would have it, strays are killing humans (strays are what they call weres that do not belong to a pack) and pretty much framing the wolves of Stone Haven. The plot is pretty solid, and keeps you guessing.

But who cares about the plot?  

Let’s talk about Clay.

At first, I was not pro- Clay… but boy oh boy this man has stole my heart. I am not one that typically gets into the whole “my life sucks, but I am so smart I can be grungy look”  but damn.  This man gets hotter and hotter with every episode.

Not to mention, there is more to his story, but you will have to watch almost the entire season before you find out what.  No spoilers here.

I really hope Greyston Holt gets on the comic con circuit and starts meeting fans, because this Texan can’t wait to meet this guy.  He has a fan in me.

Although, I will add it is disappointing how you don’t really see a lot of shirtless men in this show, especially since they are werewolves  (and all very attractive!), you would think they would get naked more often.  They don’t.  Disappointed, but at the same time it is nice to know people can make a good show without so much sex taking over the plot, to where a plot is practically nonexistent. (I am looking at you True Blood, that was all you had going for you!)

but dudes, this show is for you too…

Elena is played by the beautiful Laura Vandervoort.  Known for her characters in Smallville & V.

I am so excited to see Laura in a new show, because in my humble honest opinion she is a pretty awesome actress.  I loved her in Smallville and I am excited to see her in a new show that I can and will fangirl over.

Plus she is nice, or at least she was nice to me when I met her in Tulsa a few years ago.

So not only do you have very sexy men, the show has a stunning female lead.

I give this show an A because it is action packed, actually more like, nonstop action with yes a little romance, but unlike other shows (yes True Blood I am calling you out again!) it doesn’t take over the plot.  The show is more focused on who is killing people and why the strays are being assholes.  There is a love triangle, but don’t roll your eyes just yet, it really does seem to add to the show instead of ruin it.

The show is available on Netflix and season two starts back up in 2015, so go get caught up now.  Believe me you will not regret it!
