Hey Yall! Sorry I’ve been M.I.A., just that I wanted to kick-start our summer break enjoying uninterrupted time together without my face dived into my computer and cell phone all day and week. Also, I’m trying to get our summertime schedule together, so we are on a routine and not catching the summertime laziness.
So, we got all the school stuff behind us; we started our summer break with a massive bang at MomoCon, a convention that is split between anime/manga, gaming, comics and costuming. This four-day event is one of the fastest growing of all ages conventions in the country!
I didn’t know anything about this convention at first until last year while vacationing in Savannah for Memorial Day Weekend I have seen a Facebook sponsored post about the event. I asked Lauren if she knew about it, she said no, however, wanted to attend in 2018. I told her if we go that means no Memorial Day Weekend vacation, but she didn’t mind. Plus, she has to do well in school too. MomoCon is not a cheap convention, and I’m not going to waste my money if she didn’t perform well with her studies.
I’m telling y’all! MomoCon is the most exhausting, overwhelming, non-stop action convention I have ever gone to! And I mean all this in a good way! It was very a dull moment, something to do at every corner. It had me stepping back down memory lane when I use to play video games and draw anime characters when I was my girls’ age.
MomoCon has options of going to the convention on a 1-day pass or multi-day pass (4-days), I opted for 4-days because you get more bang for your buck, plus, I wanted to make sure we got to do as much as possible while there.
We went on the starting day, Thursday, right went the convention opened. Thursday wasn’t as busy since it’s a weekday, but I enjoyed it that way, fewer crowds. But, don’t be mistaken, it was still crowded with excited attendees.
The first stop on Thursday was the shopping exhibitors hall. Lauren was on a mission to find her favorite anime, Hetalia, of their movies, and manga books from the series, and I kid you not, she found a booth with Hetalia merchandise in less than 3 minutes! She gathered up all she wanted costing me over $100!!! Dang, it!!! We just got there, and already I’m out of $100!!! I knew right then that MomoCon is going to wipe me clean!
We walked around, I purchased more items for Lauren as well as Michelle, then checked out all the happenings around us.
To avoid spending more money, I pulled the girls into the massive gaming hall! All the gaming systems you can think of was there, all Nintendo systems, including PlayStation and Xbox, plus there were old arcade systems, along with Japanese ones, computer games, even board games! And the gaming area was 24 hours! Now, can you imagine playing video games 24 hours straight? My goodness, I would lose my mind!
