GAMEX / Comic Con 2014!!

This last weekend I went GAMEX/Comic Con in Stockholm! This was the first year that the previous gaming only convention called GAMEX was cooperating with Sweden’s first Comic Con. It turned out great! I spent two days there with my friends @geeky_gals :)

The first thing I bought was a couple of tiny plushies, apart from the llama square and the happy kitty I also got a tiny Totoro plushie, but I think my cat has already found it, caught it and killed it…. >_< lol! I also got some cute Domokun decks of card and Beemo from Adventure Time ^_^ Plus a bunch of other stuff like T-shirts etc ^^
stuff!

Then of course there were games! Even Retro Games!! :D

Sci-Fi World 2014!

The weekend before this last one I went to a sci-fi convention in Helsingborg called Sci-Fi World. This was the first time I ever went to a sci-fi convention, and apparently this year they had more visitors than ever before! :D There were loads of cool things to see and do :) They even had two tables selling retro video games! :D And loads of amazing cosplayers all over the place ^_^

The first thing I encountered was while waiting in line to enter, a Jason Voorhees cosplayer was just standing in a glade, staring at people. So awesomely creepy! :D

Me and my friend NinjaBrite got our picture taken for charity with the emperor and guards ^_^

There were two sellers there but both of them were quite pricey… I did however get a decent deal when buying a couple of games from one of them. I got 6 NES games: Adventures in the Magic Kingdom, The Hunt for Red October, Ferrari Grand Prix Challenge, High Speed, Addams Family and Wrestlemania Steel Cage. Nothing really exciting, but I didn’t previously have them at least ;D

I also picked up a game for Super Nintendo called King Arthur’s World, I’ve never played it before, but I do recall someone telling me it was good once.. so I bought it ^^
