Middle East Film & Comic Con 2017 (MEFCC) : Day 2

Got the 3-day VIP pass to this year’s ComicCon because I am hyped AF and it’s my first time attending a ComicCon LIKE THIS. Wish I had time to prepare my costume with Drew but we’ll make sure to get started with sewing 6 months prior by next year. In all honesty, I really, really, really, really want to go as 2016 Wonder Woman.

Here are loads of photos and videos I took during Day 2 of this year’s MEFCC!

I wasn’t able to go on Thursday (which was the First Day), because I usually prefer to laze around the Apartment after work, but I made sure I was up early on Friday morning to be one of the first there!

You should be able to tell how early I was …

BOOTHS

I think it’s miraculous that I was able to stop myself from spending whatever is left of my money from the Artists during this year’s ComicCon. We were surrounded by talented, talented people. MashaAllah.

Three of the Maids from the Akihabara Maidreamin Cafe in Tokyo had a booth too, I lurked around their space for a good 5-minutes because I wanted to feel like I was in Tokyo for a moment. They bring that Tokyo vibe everywhere they go, don’t they?

Thiago Provin molds these characters and his business partner works on the painting / coloring. I love it when they do their actual work during the ComicCon – it’s so inspiring.

Bana Sakhnini’s unfinished style of drawing isn’t new, but it is special. See that illustration of a freckled girl? BEAUTIFUL. I want it!

I probably went around 3 times to get a sneaky photo of Otto Scmidt’s booth … and Otto Scmidt himself. He’s one of DC Comics’ artists and has illustrated some of The Green Arrow Covers, such as these.

OMG you guys. OMG. Long Vo. Long Vo, you guys. LONG VO.

I wanted to give Guy Gilchrist a hug (he’s not in this photo though) for drawing most of my favorite characters as a child.

Fatma Sahem’s illustrations made me want to stand in front of her booth for hours. I wish I wasn’t broke, would’ve bought so much of her art. I mean, look at those drawings (and that tote bag I was lusting over so bad!).

COSPLAYERS

I wasn’t able to take much photos of the Cosplayers I saw (I was shy AF), and apparently, most of them were at the Outdoor area! BOO, ABBIE. I did manage to get some rad ones, though!

LIAM CUNNINGHAM PHOTO OP

Basically the main reason why I even went to ComicCon to begin with.

IMG_6947

My heart was pounding!

IMG_6951

Aaaaaaaaah

IMG_6952

Two photos! Hee!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I managed to get a one-on-one conversation with him before this photo was taken. I said, “Mr. Cunningham, thank you so much for all the awareness you’re raising for the Refugees. As a fan of a show, it means a lot to watch [it] knowing that someone like you is part of it” and he says, “Thank you so much. There is more to be done”. And he didn’t say it in an arrogant manner! It was more like, “I’m just doing my duty as a decent human being…” WHAT A MAN, THIS MAN.

During his Autograph Signing. Would have loved to get something signed but I was out of funds! Hahahaha!

ANTHONY MACKIE’S COMIC CON PANEL

IMG_7024

Here are a couple of videos of Anthony Mackie’s Panel, who was such a trooper even when random kids were so disrespectful to him. He’s funny, and he connects with the crowd and often interacts with them!

ALL THE OTHER FUN STUFF (AND SIGHTINGS)

I wanted their jacket so bad! Grease is currently playing at the WTC, if you’re in Dubai, you’d might want to check that out!

That wraps up Day 2 of this year’s MEFCC. After leaving the venue, Peeps treated me to Dinner at Wendy’s. NOMNOM.  I’m drafting Day 3 and should be up soon. That one’s going to be full of videos, which is exciting because Liam Cunningham is such a joy to listen to.

Thank you for reading this far.
