I cannot believe that we’re already a couple of weeks into March. Where has this year gone?! Back in January I went on a little trip to America, and I’m only just finding the words to tell you about it now.
OK, so if you didn’t know this already, I’m a HUGE fan of Marvel…and Sebastian Stan.
I’ve always wanted to go to a Comic Con event in America, preferably one where Sebastian would be a guest, so late last year when ACE Comic Con in Arizona was announced I just knew that I had to go!
The con took place 13th-15th January at Gila River Arena in Glendale. When I got there on the first day, I was overwhelmed with excitement; this was going to be my first ever Con, and also, without exaggerating, the best weekend of my life…and it was.
Over the weekend I got to sit in on Q&A’s with the Captain America cast (Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie), Stan Lee, Hayley Atwell, the cast of Spider-Man Homecoming (Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon and Laura Harrier) and Jon Bernthal and Ebon Moss-Bachrach from The Punisher. They were all so exciting!
The main chunk of my weekend, and the most exciting bit, was spent having photo ops with my favourite Marvel fellas. Yep, I got to snuggle up to Anthony Mackie, Jon Bernthal, Chris Evans and SEBASTIAN STAN!
Chris and Sebastian were so unbelievably lovely, Anthony was hilarious and Jon called me ‘sweetie’! It was all absolutely magical. I still can’t believe it’s a thing that happened. The whole weekend was an absolute dream come true. I met some wonderful people, had so much fun and, unsurprisingly, cried so many tears.
Because I still can’t really find the right words to describe my weekend, I’ve linked you to my BurgessLYF vlog from Arizona…you can see just how exciting the whole experience was!
