Haverhill Library Comic Con

We had so much fun attending Haverhill Public Library’s 4th Annual Comic Con.  They really put on an amazing day with a variety of activities, vendors, and visitors.  I’ll be doing a post later about some of the great vendors we got to know, but today I wanted to talk about little about the comic con and show off some of the pictures I took.

 

We got there early and got our table set up.  We had worked hard on some new items special for this event.  Including brand new Sonic Screwdriver treat tubes, comic book roses, some amazing geek-themed coasters and the trays I talked about in our last post.

They also featured some great classes and lectures during the day.  The day started off with Cosplay 101, they had a talk about LGBTQ comics, a Cosplay contest and in the afternoon they had a lecture about Dungeons and Dragons and Stranger Things.  They had activities all day for kids, including face-painting, making their own comics and a magic show!

We even brought some of our own props, including our own Yoda, droids and Darth Vader!

 

 

It was such a fun day and we love supporting local events.  Can’t wait to be a part of it next year!

Getting ready for Comic Con!

Last year at Christmas time I decorated these adorable trays with holiday paper.  I had kind of forgotten about them until Kathy and I went on an adventure to AC Moore a few weeks ago.  We happened upon the blank trays while we were wandering around and I thought….how fun would they be with some shiny paint and geeky themed paper?

 

It all starts with painting.  I actually find making these trays a pretty zen activity….the layers of painting, adding the paper and then adding the layers of modge podge.  (we love modge podge!)

Once the paint is dry, it’s time for the fun part!  We picked up this amazing “comic” themed paper from AC Moore.  (We really shouldn’t be allowed to go together.  We get up to shenanigans!)  I cut the paper into starburst circles, using the Starburst Punch from Stampin Up.  It’s one of my very favorite punches, it’s perfectly sized to use for all sorts of projects.

Once all the layers of paper are added, I add a few layers of modge podge to seal them, and then they are given a spray with sealant.

 

These particular trays were bound for our trip to the Haverhill Public Library‘s 4th Annual Comic Con.  The event was amazing and I’ll be back with a post all about it next week, including some of the amazing vendors!
