My posting for Heroes Con 2015 seems to have gone like my posting for this year, very poor.  I did get all my pictures posted on Google +.  I guess I didn't feel like it mattered since I never got included in the Heroes Con Blog report on sites with pics.  I did all kinds of stuff to get noticed, but I just did not have the energy and with my Blogging being so limited it did not seem to matter.  I think I suffered so depression during the trip.  If my friend Richard were not with me I believe I would have had a very bleak weekend.  I tried so hard to recapture the magic of the last few years, but it just felt off.  Some cool things happened, but i just felt lost a bit.

One thing was wanting to be CosPlaying.  I want to dress up so bad, but have just been behind in creativity and money for doing something.  I know whatever I do will look silly, but as long as I can make some people and kids smile it would be OK.  Knowing my body type is limited on the character I can play makes it challenging.  I want to at least attempt to look credible.  So I think that hampered me a great deal.

This was one of the biggest attendances in a long time.  Friday was especially busy this year.  It was hard to enjoy and get around on Friday and i got tired really fast.  The diabetes just sapped my strength.  It was different dealing with it this year.  Made me struggle to be able t stand around any length of time.  

I did get my three commissioned pieces set and agreed upon Friday.  They are awesome.  I held back mostly until Sunday for Prints.  One Liono print did come with me Friday.  I had to get it.  $5 trades was what I spent money on early.  This was the common early deal of the convention floor.  There was a crazy trend with customized Legos this year.  I never got a pic, seemed like those vendors would be the nit picky ones about pics.  

There were outstanding CosPlayers around.  Some of the costumes just blow your mind.  Lots of kids.  That was cool to see.  The number of future geeks.  It means that these kids will read and dream.  They will be the type to grow up with the type of hope where a man can fly or a tragic lose doesn't crush you.  

More later.

So I am able to post......

Life really has sapped the writing energy from me.  I took that second job and it did help with money issues, but the time schedule and the way it messed with my diabetes running made me have no energy.  I read stuff and even have purchased some books that I wanted to blog about, but when the time came I just felt to bad to do anything.

Still, it is time for HeroesCon and I wanted to post to let the few that do read when I get something up a "heads up" on my posting of pics and writing about the day.  I am looking forward more to just being away than anything.  I have no real goals this year.  I do want to get a sketch of Word Girl and Captain Huggyface done.  That would be cool.  I have a sketch cover Captain America #1 where the Falcon takes on the mantle.  Not sure what to get.  I want Redwing on there I know.  

Really just playing it by ear and going to browse for books and trades.  We will see how well my Print Addiction goes.  Anyway.  Be on the lookout for post on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Word Up!!!
