MSP ComiCon (SpringCon) 2017

I’m posting this so late – sorry!

A couple of weekends ago I attended MSP ComiCon (SpringCon) at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. It’s a fun two-day convention that’s focused on comics and collectibles, and I volunteered at the Minnesota Force table off and on over the weekend.

Saturday night the Minnesota Force was supposed to make an appearance at the St. Paul Saints Star Wars Night, but the game was canceled due to the rain. It rained nonstop all day, and it was so cold. It would have made for a miserable time for everyone, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t sad that the event was canceled. It’s supposed to be rescheduled, so hopefully it will happen sometime in July or August.

On Sunday, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to recreate the photo of Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron sitting in his X-Wing drinking coffee, so I attempted to put on my “If you can’t beat the First Order, seduce them with your wily charms” face and held up my coffee. I’m an idiot.

I bought fun things, too: General Hux and Captain Phasma “Black Series” figures, a pair of purple Lego lightsaber earrings, and a set of Jabba the Hutt and Salacious B. Crumb plushies. Oh, and a stack of Catwoman series 2 comics. Fun times!
