Spotlight Photo 01.09.12

Happy New Year everyone! I know, I know… Just a little bit late but it’s worth it!

My first find of Shadocon 2011 was this beautiful Black Cat. Not only was she my first photo, but she was also the first cosplayer EVER to give me their own card in return! She was very nice and made a perfect Black Cat. Hope everyone enjoys this Spotlight Photo!

Photo Taken at Shadocon 2011, in Tampa, Florida.

Jericho-Con: A Report

This past weekend, I got to me one of my fav-o-rite wrasslers of all time: Chris Jericho. He was awesome. I got him to sign not only his book, but his DVD, both the case and the jacket. Now I get to give it to someone as a gift, and they get to have Jericho’s autograph as well! Yay presents! Speaking of presents, I even got him to “talk to” Kayla through my camera, so I got to bring her home a present too.

The rest of the weekend was a fun hang-out time in Tampa. I got to see the South Florida aniRAGE Crew (SFaC), consisting of Dashi, Sibby, and Shaggy (and Dashi’s girlfriend of course). We had an awesome time hanging out and experiencing some cool food places that I don’t have up here in Jacksonville.

The coolest (both figuratively and literally) was Yogurt Mountain. It is a yogurt bar where you get to pick your own flavor(s) of yogurt, self serve, and add in your own toppings, and then pay a “by the weight” price. They had all sorts of flavors, from fruity sorbet flavors to cake batter and peanut butter. And the toppings, oh the toppings! From cereals to sprinkles to fruit and candy, just about everything you could imagine. Myself, I went with cookies and cream, mint pieces, followed by vanilla with sprinkles and hot fudge. SO. GOOD.

We also went to a local burger joint called BurgerMonger. They take awesome kobe beef and make amazing burgers with it. It’s a little pricey, but damn is it good!

Needless to say, I felt a lot fatter after that day!

Saturday I made my first trip to Ybor City, but it was so packed that Dashi and I decided to try again another day. All we really wanted to do was check out GameWorks, but that’ll have to be for another trip.

Sunday was a fun time, since I got to hang out with a good friend of mine from Orlando, Sam. It’s all her fault that I got super-duper back into Power Rangers and Dragonball Z. She was even the first person to introduce me to Bleach and Naruto, before it was cool over here (now it’s too mainstream ~Hipster Zeke). I even got to meet the dude who created Metrocon and sit around talking about conventions. Was a fun time, and I can’t wait for the next time I get to make a trip down to Tampa.

The next big trip? MegaCon in Orlando! I’ll be there, will you?


Destination: Tampa. Target: Chris Jericho

This Friday, I will have the honor of meeting one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, Chris Jericho. He will be doing a book signing in Tampa Florida for his new book: Undisputed: How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps.

Dashi is set to join me, as well as two awesome people we met at ShadoCon this year, Jennifer and Gregory. It’s gonna be a damn-fun time, so if you are a wrestling fan in the Tampa area, try to make it by the Barnes and Nobles on Carrollwood. The signing starts at 7, but wristbands for the event will be handed out at 2. Check out This Link for more info!

I plan on getting him to sign the title page, crossing off “Steps” with “armbars”, but we’ll see!

Oh, and as a teaser…3 anirage members will be in tampa. And there may be a video camera involved. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.
