Minnie Mouse at D23
So, D23 was over a week ago and wow. But it was a fun unique experience! I have been quite a few cons at this point and I have never seen so many lines! I think I will do a post about tips for surviving D23 Expo...but for now here is a review of my first day!
The first day was a whirlwind of trying to get places, seeing amazing cosplay, and getting into panels. On the first day, I was able to get into the Animation Disney and Pixar Panel, which was amazing! Well, the Disney portion was amazing, gotta say I was disappointed in the Pixar portion of the panel. BUT I got to see Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson! He is even more massive in real life, and just as wonderful...sorry, back to D23...
But before seeing the Rock I had time to enjoy the con and all it had to offer! I went to the Uniqlo station and get some serious swag! I made sure to visit on the first day because I did not want them to run out of my size (like they did at Anime Expo). Uniqlo is doing a partnership with several artists across the world letting them redesign the classic Mickey logo in their own creative way. The "Mickey 100 Project" will be in stores soon, but the lucky people at D23 got to it early (and a discount!). I even got my picture taken by someone at Uniqlo! Don't know where the picture is, but if you see it, let me know!
After seeing the Rock, it was actually pretty late, but I was determined to get pictures of my cosplay. This was actually the first dress I have sewn from scratch, and I am quite proud of how it turned out! It was nice to hear other people compliment my dress, and feel so very "Minnie"! After doing my cosplay photos, I looked in the schedule and saw there was a Minnie bar. I was able to get to the bar before they closed the floor, and took a few photos with the giant Minnie. It was just too perfect! I even got to walk the floor of the convention hall when it was practically empty, and got a few pics before being kicked out. My first day at D23 was magical (and full of lines) but overall wonderful.
Well, that was day 1, expect day 2 post soon (and even more pictures of my cosplay). I think I will start a cosplay gallery? What do you think? TTFN, ta ta for now.
