This weekend was a blast. A once in a lifetime opportunity popped up last year revealing that Star Wars Celebration 2019 was to take place in Chicago, Illinois at McCormick Place. Being a huge Star Wars Fan (and just a ridiculous nerd in general) I needed to attend, if only to see what it was like to be among fellow nerds who worship all things Star Wars. I have to tell you, it was out of this world fantastic. Food, drinks, celebrity autographs, specialty panels revealing new and exclusive Star Wars information… We even got the title and teaser trailer for Episode 9 (“The Rise of Skywalker”, teaser trailer linked here).
Now, I saw this all of the time and it’s the absolute truth, the best part about attending these geeky getaways is the people (I said this in my “Best part of the Renaissance Faire” video linked here). These die hard fans came from galaxies far far away to attend 5 days of like minded nerdy bliss. Now, I wasn’t able to get a hold of those exclusive Funko figures, but I did get to walk the exhibition floor and saw some of the most amazing Cosplay I have ever seen.
An experience of a lifetime… I can officially check this off of my bucket list.
