CWI Comic Con

The College of Western Idaho put on a Comic Con at the Nampa Campus last weekend. Ashley has been talking about wanting to go to a Comic Con since Halloween so when I saw the flyer at school I told her about it and she has been super excited to go. So we dressed up and headed to the CWI Comic Con. We talked Owen into going but he didn't want to dress up so he was in charge of our mini R2D2.

We had fun walking around looking at all the different vendor's tables most of them artists with really cool artwork for sale. We got to talk to the R2 builder's club, who had built a full size remote control R2D2. They tied our mini R2D2 to their big R2D2 and they roamed around the hallway photo bombing people. We went to a talk on costume design and got some great ideas for making costumes more comfortable. Everyone ended up having to leave the building, do it the big R2D2 catching on fire but once the firemen cleared the building we got to go back in. Then we participated in the costume contest where we got Best Group. It was a fun afternoon and we had fun taking photos.
