5 Fandom Friday: Things I’ve Bought at Cons

Nerdist Presents: The Hive at San Diego Comic Con

I'm not going to San Diego Comic Con this year. While I'm still sad that I don't get to go AGAIN, there are enough people that I follow who are going (like one of my faves, The Nerdy Girlie), that I can almost feel like I'm there.
