Wizard World Comic Con Chicago 2015: My VIP experience

I'm stil overwhelmed and supposed to published a blog post about my experience with Wizard World Comic Con Chicago last August 20-23, 2015. This was my second time to attend the largest convention about comics, superheroes, horror flicks, pop culture, sci fi adventure, TV serials and a lot more geeky stuff.



I purchase a VIP pass which includes the following:
  • 4 day weekend admission
  • Exclusive VIP badge (of the artist I want to meet)
  • Photo op pass &  8x10 photo as a souvenir
  • Signture Ticket 
  • Plus Walking Dead comics 
  • VIP express access to Q&A panels







The 4 day event is held at Rosemont, Illinois. 20 minutes from my home, one of the best venue I've ever been so far because of easy transportation access. I went to pick up my badge on Thursday afternoon after my work so that I won't experience long lines in registration. Upon claiming my ID and wrist badge, I was told that I should not take off the wrist band because it is already washable. I said, I have to work tomorrow? Okay, I'll just wear a jacket so I can hide this thing!



Inside the exhibit hall, there were booths selling toys, action figures, comic books, magazines, celebrity photos,shirts and hundreds of Funko! There was also a Zombie Apocalypse exhibit located at the 2nd floor wherein you can find zombies inspired from the Walking Dead. For those who love horror flicks, there's a free screening for Wizard World admission attendants featuring Bruce Campbell's Horror film festival at Muvico Rosemont.




Panel discussions were jampacked! Fans lined up to ask their questions to their favorite celebrity. I got a chance to attend four panels Q&A: Milo Ventigmigla, Ian Somerhalder, Stephen Amell and Jason David Frank.


Here's the video I compiled. Fans were able to asked their questions.

Milo answered that he got 12 out of 10 if he will rate his career. Ian joked about imagining the audience naked and it is very calming. Stephen was grateful for the job he accepted as the Arrow and Jason / the green ranger's inspiring note for those who admire him in Martial Arts.

Another interesting happening inside the venue is speed dating. If you love to meet a soulmate, there's Love in the Air @ Comic Con Chicago speed dating. It's a fun way to interact and meet people with same interests. From what I read online, there were successful stories resulted in the speed dating. Oh well, I may try it next year - just kidding :P




Other celebrities who were present at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago 2015 were Jeremy Renner, Norman Reedus, Nathan Fillion, Billie Piper, Burt Reynolds, David Morrissey, Ben McKenzie, Bruce Campbell, and some WWE superstars.

I was fortunate to take home this Glow in the Dark Tokyo Vinyl Green Ranger limited edition during Wizard World Comic Con Chicago. I've heard that there were only 1,500 figures produced and 500 were available for purchase at Comic Con Chicago.



There was also a pre-show concert performed by World of Warcraft composer Jason Hayes and Video Game band "Critical Hit" The group performed songs from your favorite classic video games like "Super Mario Bros," "Legend of Zelda," "Tetris," "Pokemon" and a lot more. Guests who dressed up nicely wins the Wizard World Cosplayer contest.

My best moments at the convention were seeing my celebrities during the Panel and my meet & greet experience with Stephen Amell which I will feature on my next blog post :)

See you on 2016 Wizard World Comic Con Chicago

Where were you during the INC rally and carmageddon in EDSA last Friday?

Iglesia ni Cristo rally in EDSA, zombie apocalypse, carmageddon, what else??

I’m blogging this because I really want it to be recorded here in my blog and to remember the situation that caught us off guard. I agree with the photo caption that was shared by Top Gear Philippines, that the photo above is a picture perfect of the August 28, 2015 Carmageddon in EDSA.

I failed to try to make my own burger fusion of a Burger King and Jollibee


My plan this afternoon is to make an experiment -- combine the two burgers from Burger King and Jollibee. The concept came up when McDonalds rejected the proposal of Burger King to launch together a new burger called McWhopper, in celebration and awareness of Peace Day this September 21.

Kata F2 smartphone - affordable, small but superior (a review)

Kata F2 smartphone

Organique Acai Premium Blend–the super food you need to your health

Organique Acai Premium blend

Organique Acai was introduced to me during a product presentation few days ago, I heard of this from tv, radio and read it in a newspaper, I just didn’t mind it because I’m not interested to know more about that product, all I heard is that the product contains antioxidants and it’s a good food supplement. For us people who are busy and never mind about our health, we just seem not to care about the products around us, because we are not sick and maybe 70% of our body are healthy.

LONG LIVE THE ROADSTER
I got some tears in my eyes when Mazda Philippines unveiled this beautiful Mazda MX5, it’s a new version and 5th generation after its first model 25 years ago. Why tears? because it reminded me my younger days when I first saw these Mazda Miata cars, a two seater car with convertible roof to open top sports car, I always see this in some Sentai or Japanese sci fi tv series in local tv and the first Japanese brand that I love and thanks to those Japanese tv shows that airs in our land during and after Martial Law.

Marcia Adams restaurant in Tagaytay–my first visit

Marcia Adams restaurant in Tagaytay City

Finally! I have tasted and also visited this hidden restaurant in the far reaches of Tagaytay City. Marcia Adams is very popular via word of mouth and this was well mentioned and promoted by top foodies and blogger and I also learned about its existence to a fellow foodie blogger. I’m curious and want to try their food since 2013, but I didn’t got a chance to visit it because I’m totally clueless where it is located and also my partner doesn’t want to go there because we are not familiar with the route, but living in Tagaytay for 2 years, I guess we’re ready to try this and I’m glad that I was here and I know already the way how to go there.
