My Experience at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago 2015

Image
Wizard World Comic Con Chicago 2015 is over and I can't believe that I've seen my favorites in just two days! This year, I invested my time and money (going VIP is awesome!) to experience and be part of this super event.



Day 1 & 2 - Thursday & Friday (Agenda: Toy hunt)
After work, I go straight to the venue to picked up my badge. Having a VIP access has many perks that includes a photo op & autograph, plus a 4 day access to the event. This year, I purchased Stephen Amell VIP access. Who is he? Oh well, Google it to find out, LOL

Polaroid Fotobar: Transform your digital images into Polaroid Prints
