The superheroes, gender-bent Thors and Lokis, video game idols, and a slew of other awesome cosplay (including a Groot who was likely only about seven years old and totally stole the show for me), made the quick trip down to Calgary so very, very worth it. The best moment for me, however, was both my kids recognizing one of their favorite Five Nights at Freddy's characters, Toy Foxy, and yelling and pointing and making the person behind the mesh in the mask smile so wide that I actually still grin just thinking about it.
Time to start planning for next year.... ;)
Why are Authors crazy? I can't answer that, but I can provide bits of my own thoughts so that you can piece together why I may be.
