Photos of the Convention, my bubs, a bear, Aquaman, and a purse

I figured I should start with a "jazzy" photo just to grab your attention, this is my friend Scott, he is a costume designer and runs the costume contest at the show....I know I am getting ahead of myself....so here goes, in order.....

This is a short but sweet photo journal from my trip to Pittsburgh for the comic convention. We stopped at a welcome center once we hit PA, it was a little before 6:00am and I had been up since 3:00...so please forgive how awful I look.
At the rest area there was a stuffed bear, so I knew I needed to have my picture with it, we tried and tried to get a good one, I wanted one with me that looked like I was riding the bear through the wild...but the woman manning the rest area desk gave me "the look" that said, "bitch, don't you climb on that bear", so this was the best I could get, but please know that I suffered for this photo...I am allergic after all.
This is a random fat man sleeping on the floor at the convention...you see it's moments like this that I realize that all comic book stereotypes do come from someplace.


This is a photo I took for my friend Aaron, this is the view from my hotel room, of the Monroeville Mall....many of you may know this as the mall where they filmed the original Dawn Of The Dead....it is known around the world as "Zombie Mall"
This is me and my bubs....we had already had a couple drinks and were getting ready to get a taxi into the city for even more drinking and eating...wonderful!!!
Look how cool these drinks are, they are actually called "cocktails by Jenn" I just had to have them and they come with little matching straws to go with each drink...in truth they are not that great, and sort of pricey...but I will most likely buy them again, just based on cute factor.
this is a photo of my bubs pretending to be all business at the hotel, though it just looks like random hotel nonsense in front of him, I assure you that those are in fact important business papers.
And last but not least....my new Dior.

Diana got the bag a few years ago when she was overseas, and she loaded up on Gucci and Dior and new she would eventually give them all as gifts eventually....sigh...isn't it pretty?

wow, sorry the photos were not that exciting, they seemed more thrilling to me when I was taking them...

alas, no.

don't forget to check the post below this one to get the winner of the contest.

I can't believe you took a picture of the Monroeville Mall for me!!!!! I love you so much it hurts. xoxoxo

Sigh. Now I want to watch Dawn of the Dead for the millionth time.

It looks like you and K had a great time; rock on! Oh, and "bitch, don't you climb on that bear" is the funniest thing I've heard all weeek.

Okay, is it wrong that I can't stop staring at the mall picture, trying to imagine where the original stores were?

Worse yet, is it bad that I can't stop staring at the picture, imagining myself on the roof taking sniper shots at zombies?

Oh! I would totally throw Nickelback CDs at them!

Oh my god, I need help.

Does the man sleeping on the floor have a sign in front of him? Looks like he does yet, I can't make out what it says. Very interesting.

Looks like you had a good weekend. That is great! I'm glad to finally see a pic of your bubs and to see a pic of the Dior. Beautiful!

xo,

When I first glanced at the pictures I thought the man sleeping on the floor was your Bubs... thank god I was wrong.

Also, your real Bubs does not look AT ALL like I imagined. Not in a bad way, I just had an entirely different picture in my head.

Looks like you had fun! Oh, and on my road trip across America I'm definitely making that mall one of my stops. Awesome!

You and your bubs or you and the bear, I can't decide. You are all hot caramel latte on a frisky winter day in Zurich. Great Pics, lovely Dior.

1. Thanks for faithfully visiting Asian Models Blog.

2. Honey, you look prettier at 6:00 AM than I'll ever be.

3. Your travelog photos are fun and interesting.

4. Is the cutie in the first photo single? Make sure he stays in his suit when you send him over. I do love a man in costume. :-)

5. HA! I just saw Dawn of the Dead last summer. Hilarious.

6. "Lady, come away from the bear! This is your first warning! Don't make me come out there with my tranquilizer gun!"

7. Love the purse.

Oh the photos are great!! I too was slightly concerned that the first photo was your bubs - but what a handsome fellow he is! You are so cute together. And yep, I agree - you look far more beautiful and glamorous at 6am than I will ever be.

Love the bear photo too!

I love the pics! When I saw the first one, I though THAT was your bubs, and I thought "Huh, I never pictured him in skin tight green garb," and was relieved to read that that was your friend in costume. But, your bubs is a hottie--you go girl!

And I love the Zombie Mall pic. I thought that movie was cheesy but awesome.
