Phoenix Comic-Con 2016 Report #1

As you all know if you check in to the blog semi-regularly, I had the opportunity to attend Phoenix Comic Con from June 2nd to 5th.
     I love going to this convention because not only is it a ton of fun, but I also always end up learning a lot of great stuff that I can then bring back to my library and turn into super fun programs for my patrons. For the next couple of weeks the Thursday post will not be a book review, but instead will be some things about Comic Con, what I was up to, what I learned and what I plan to steal and turn into a library program.
   But first, COSPLAY! I have loved dressing up in crazy costumes since I was a very small kid, but I have never been brave enough to cosplay to a convention. This year, I was completely shocked when my boyfriend, who is by nature a very shy and reserved person suggested we might want to give it a shot. We decided to try 2 costumes each, but nothing that really matched because we're so not "that" couple. So he decided to do Kakashi Hatake from the Naruto anime, and because I have always been obsessed with Buffy The Vampire Slayer and constantly tell him how much he looks like my favorite character, Spike, he decided to do it for me, and cosplayed Spike (at a con that was attended by James Marsters, who played Spike. Here are the results:

The real Spike. 
My own personal Spike.

The Real Kakashi
My boyfriend as Kakashi

I think he did a pretty darn good job! What do you guys think?

Next Thursday: my own Cosplay and the story behind that!

    1. Thanks! Not bad for a couple of first timers, I think.
