Your 2016 Highlights!

Your 2016 Highlights!
« on: September 06, 2016, 10:43:40 PM »
I've thrown this thread out there each year I've been on this forum, so let's kick it off! What were your personal favorite moments from Con this year? Mine, in no particular order:

-Christy Carlson Romano. So intelligent and insightful, she was great!
-Scott Adsit. So warm and hilarious!
-Partying in the Westin Presidential Suite with Carlos Valdes
-Watching my childhood faves Joey and Chris from N Sync be hung over and making penis jokes in their panel, as well as hosting the Masquerade which I watched from my room with great buds
-Rocking my Poison Ivy ala Rio Carnival costume
-As always, Mechanical Masquerade. Absolute favorite dance party every year.

EDIT: OMG can't believe I forgot, but I finally made it to Hilton Karaoke. I was the Ixion from FFX on Saturday Night singing Adele's "Someone Like You"

- After 9 years, FINALLY having a Mai Tai from Trader Vic's.
- Being at the media party, hanging out with Richard Hatch while he played a game of pool with a friend of mine.
- Having a guest take OUR picture for their social media post.
- Hella fun photo op with the Dark Matter cast, so fun that the entire photo staff gave us a loud round of applause and laughter.
- GETTING ENGAGED on Monday evening up in the Pulse Loft area.  ;D

Last, and not least by any means, being able to share the with 20-30 of my best friends. From the first shot of imported Vodka from Prague on Wednesday night, to the last shot of Bunny sake with a friend nicknamed Bunny on Monday afternoon, and all the hugs in between. The true highlight is very same attendees that make the con what it is.
