Comic Con 2022
To my dearest, most adoring and patient fans, welcome back to K's corner, the place for all things about, you guessed it, me!
I know, I know. "K, where have you been? We've missed you?" Your wails of despair and longing have been heard and are now being answered! My absence is, in part, due to the fact that I have been working very hard in making sure Ole Seph is keeping up with my story. Not that I want to be continuously tortured, but I'm doing this for your sake. The rest of the reason for my prolonged leave is because I'm trying not to die. I'm sure you can understand. I know none of you are rooting for my death. *hard stare
Now, I know a month has already passed since Comic Con took place in Winnipeg (plus a bit), but I'm here to tell you all about it! The absolute first thing you must know is that I'm incredibly insulted!
I'm sure some of you remember that last year, Seph went dressed as me. It was a horrible cosplay, if I do say so myself, and I do. Emphatically. But talk about pouring salt in the wound. Not only did she choose to dress as someone else, she chose Vy-Annu'Re! That's right. The woman who tortures me in writing dressed as the woman who orchestrates my tortures! It's like they're the same person. It's horrifying and I shudder just thinking about it.
Just look at her. That right there is the face of a witch. She thinks she can get away with whatever she wants just because she's a beautiful royal, but I won't stand for it! I don't care how glamorous she tries to make herself. Just because she got some fancy dress made by some designer named Lady Lilith! I'm not even joking. You can go find this sinister seamstress on social media and see how she casually creates clothing for villains like Vy-Annu'Re . . . er, Seph!
As a side note, I'm sure Lady Lilith is a wonderful person. I've never met her myself, but you can understand my bias against her as she's in league with my aggressor. No matter how cool, or interesting, or stylish, or talented she is, I simply cannot like her.
Now. About the venue itself. Last year was the first since the covid epidemic I've heard about. I'm not even sure I know what a covid is, but can it be anywhere near as bad as a thrashing? Probably not.
Anyway. That's not the point I was trying to get to.
This year's Comic Con was double the size of the previous year! Wow! I think I read somewhere that there were around 28,000 people? Yeah, that right there is pretty cool. The books about myself were obviously the best merchandise available at the event, if I may be permitted to blow my own horn a little bit.
I mean, look at those stylish covers. Who wouldn't want to buy a book about me?
Alright, honest truth here. You guys know I'm pretty awesome. And you know any story about me has to be good, yeah? Well, I'm always conflicted about it. I mean, yes, I think I'm great, but am I really great enough that people would want to know about my story?
There was one guy who came to the table to buy book 4, and he commented that if he'd known, he would have brought his other books to get signed. I mean . . . that's what this is all about. I know Seph was over the moon to have received such a heart-warming comment like that, to know someone out there was enjoying the books enough to come back and buy the continuation. And I had similar feelings. Someone liked reading about me and wanted to know what else would happen to me. How can you not get all warm and fuzzy from something like that?
That moment right there made the whole weekend worth it.
There were lots of cool things to look at, lots of interesting vendors, and the line-up of celebrities that I was once again not invited to be a part of. No one I knew personally. Ole Seph got to say hello to a fellow name Matthew Lewis, and I kept hearing something about a voice named Mario. Whatever the case, it was all a little bit overwhelming in a way. But it was a fabulous whirlwind event and I wish we could attend more of them!
Now, before I sign off, I do have one little video clip for you. It's not of me, sad to say. I know, you're all disappointed. I get it.
As you know, I'm not shy in voicing my displeasure at the rough treatment Ole Seph likes to put me through. However, I do have to admit that there are moments when I don't fully, completely hate her. She does make an excellent Vy-Annu'Re. Like, scarily good. If she had all the accessories and pieces that I know she'd been hoping to acquire, it would have been too much. Not for the costume, but for me to be able to keep it together. Just saying. I might have gone berserk.
But, enough of my babbling. Here's the short video.
Isn't she gorgeous and just absolutely disgusting at the same time?
Anyway, that's it for me for today. I can't promise when I'll be back. I'm afraid things might not go well for me. If I should die, well, know that I died thinking of all of you (you know, if I have a mind with which to think at that point).
