Dallas Chapter

I was so glad to be able to attend Fan Expo Dallas 2021 as a FAN MEETUPS Ambassador. After such a tumultuous last few years in Texas, and moreover the world, it was wonderful to be united by fandom once again. It was truly inspiring to see all the artist, cosplayers, photographers and performers who used their unexpected free time to further perfect their craftsmanship bringing joy to us all. Can’t wait to see y’all again soon!

Dallas Chapter

As I walked into the Kay Bailey Hutchison Center on Friday I was filled with emotions. I was excited to see old friends and make new ones. I couldn't wait to go to panels and learn all the secrets of breaking into comics. I was nervous about hosting my own panel. Above all else though, I was happy to be back at a convention.

As the weekend went on, the halls filled with people sharing their love and passion for all the fandoms. Whether it was incredible cosplay on the red carpet, or live sketch duels, or listening to Matthew Lewis talk about getting a toad fired from the Harry Potter films, I could tell everyone else shared my happiness.

I have to say that by the end of it all I felt another emotion: humility. I was shocked at how many people attended my panel on podcasting, it was truly amazing. I think everyone, myself included, was just hungry for the experience of a convention and you could feel it. Everyone's eyes lit up as they walked from aisle to aisle, seeing celebrities and talented creators in person for the first time in two years. It was touching to be part of something so amazing and I can't wait to see everyone next year!

I had a great time seeing all the artists, celebrities, vendors and other cosplayers! It’s a great reminder of all the interests that bring people together rather than pulling us apart. I was ecstatic to see Dante Basco and chat with all the other con goers in his line. I miss people and the fan community. This was a fantastic welcome back. 

Friends with the Fire Nation at last
