Melbourne Toy and Comic Con

 

The Melbourne Toy & Comic Convention is a small, family-friendly con located in Melbourne at the Auditorium.  This convention is held twice a year.  Rufo and I have been to the last 2 (October 2016/March 2017).  On both occasions we’ve had the pleasure of talking to George Lowe (better known as the voice of SpaceGhost and other popular animated voice characters).

On both visits we’ve spent significant time talking to George and listening to his witty banter with other con-goers and vendors.  We always are sure to purchase a signed print off of the table and get a picture with him.  If  you are in the area and are a fan of the show or any of the other shows he’s worked on I would advise you to stop by his table and have a chat.

This con features a small game and kids room, a few workshops and talks.  The bulk of the con is the vendors.  If you are looking for comics, toys, or POPs then you’ve come to the right place.  Both times we’ve acquired some new art.  This time we purchased the signed print from George Lowe, 2 Spiderman prints, Edgar Allan Poe – Raven, Tesla, and Ash v the Evil Dead print.

It isn’t an expensive convention so it’s a great way to waste a Sunday.  There are always neat things to buy.  I picked up a 3D puzzle of a praying mantis.  I haven’t had time to assemble him yet.

If you are in town for the next convention, stop by – geek out a little.  🙂

I have to say when I ordered these off of Amazon there was no specification of size other than basically one-size “normal” and one-size “plus size.” The lack of individual sizing left me a little skeptical. I decided to order them and give it a try.  I loved that there were various prints to choose from.  There are many different patterns available for the 2 basic sizes.  I fell in love with the “Inner Elephant” print and decided to order them.

I’m typically a 20-22 in USA Women’s clothing.  I’m 5’2.” I really wondered how these were going to fit.  Would the design stretch out making these appear ill fitting?  Would they fit properly at all?

I was pleasantly surprised!  First off all the texture of the material is amazing.  It’s extremely soft to the touch.  They may be hard to wear in the summer here but they will be excellent for fall-spring. They fit extremely well.  They don’t bunch up and they hug my curves well.

I would consider purchasing another pair at full price because I’m so happy and satisfied with these leggings.  They fit well, the texture is amazing, and I love leggings!!!!
