I’m reposting last year’s Comic-Con plea, because unfortunately, my situation is the same as last year. I still live in the middle of nowhere, forced to watch panels on YouTube and pretend I’m there.
I have a favor to ask of you. I am unable to attend Comic-Con because I am…how-you-say, poor. HOWEVER, I do not want this to affect my attending the festivities, so I HAVE A PLAN.
If you’re going to Comic-Con, TAKE ME WITH YOU. No, no. I don’t mean stuff me in your suitcase and try to bypass security. If Trisha Leigh wouldn’t accept that offer, I don’t expect anyone else to. Instead, I propose something a little…out of the ordinary.
These are popsicle sticks:
This is a picture of my face, with the lines already drawn for easy cutting. (YOU’RE WELCOME.)
Put those things together and TADA! Insta-Jen. Take me with you to all the booths and signings. Then you can say, “No, it’s not for me. It’s for Jen!” (Then hold up the face, because if you say it without the face, obviously people will think you’re crazy.)
I know what you’re thinking. “But Jen, you’re not always happy and smiling, especially when large crowds of people are involved. What if someone does something STARE-worthy?”
Don’t worry my little Con-ners. I have you covered. Let no one say that Jen does not provide the maximum amount of creepy for her minions.
Don’t limit the JENFACE to just Comic-Con either (because I’m a little late on this blog post for some, LESS DEDICATED people). Take JENFACE with you to book signings and the grocery store. Maybe even to your local coffee shop so you don’t feel like you’re sipping your latte alone.
If you are just crazy enough to take JENFACE with you to the outside world, LET ME KNOW. Send me a picture. Maybe I’ll send you a gift. Or maybe it’ll just be your own <insert name here> FACE. YOU NEVER KNOW. I’m just that unpredictable.
I LOVE YOU ALL, MARTA.
