So right now I am sitting in the Vancouver airport, three hours early for my flight (free wifi!) and decided to post about my IMATS Vancouver experience this weekend :) I met quite a few of you guys and had a blast.
For some reason, I really like the Vancouver show more than LA. I think a big reason for that is because IMATS LA is sooooo overwhelming. There is SO much to see and sooooo many people, that my experience there is a big blur. Vancouver is a much smaller show (probably a quarter of the size of LA) and Vancouver is so beautiful.
I left Friday afternoon, and here was my airport attire-
apologies for the messy bg, I am NOT an organized packer!
Summertime always means lots of plane time for me, and I’m all for comfort on airplanes (but could never being one of those people that wear their pajamas on a plane! I opted for some comfy leggings, a long racerback tee, my Zara leather jacket, and my Toms Ballet Flats. For makeup, I just used a bit of concealer here and there (and under my eyes, I was tiiiired!!) and some mascara and liner to wake me up :)
Vancouver for me is COLD. 60 degree weather is basically winter for AZ, hahah. Leggings again, a skull shirt thats all open in the back (forms an X from the top) along with my Abbey Dawn Shoes from Just Fab (sooo obsessed with these!!) My Necklaces are Betsey Johnson (cat) and Pursebuzz (cupcake). Sorry I completely forgot to get a good shot of my makeup, boo! I did a smokey eye with gold glitter :)
Saturday was also my class day! There were a few fails (I spilled neon pink pigment ALL OVER MY LEGS. that was cool) but it was fun overall :)
I also got to finally officially meet Kevin James Bennet, and loooove him. He told me that he has seen and was impressed with my Hunger Games looks, and I kind of died. He’s a huge inspiration to me, so it was great to be able to talk and hang out with him (along with try out the brushes he helped design with Royal.. omg I cannot wait to talk to you all about those!!)
Speaking of meeting people, We went out after IMATS and one of the bars we were at had some of the cast of Once Upon a Time there (and I LOVE that show). Met a few people..
Prince Charming. I don’t usually fangirl, but I did juuuust a bit when I saw him!
Snow White (Ginnifer is so sweet and small!) I told her she was a big inspiration for me cutting my hair off, and she said “but yours looks so much better than mine!” I kinda died.
I’m not gonna lie, I was more excited to meet this guy because he was in Vampire Diaries. Not really a secret that my biggest celebrity crush is Ian Somerhalder, so meeting someone that worked with him was pretty cool!
Grumpy, or as I know him better, Pintel from Pirates of the Caribbean! I geeked and told him I watched his vlogging extras from the pirates DVD, hahha. I’m a huge sucker for DVD extras!
Day 2 outfit-
This outfit didn’t last long. I brought clothes to change in to in case we went out (jeans and a tshirt) because I get cold really easily, but the convention center was actually COLDER that it was outside! Jacket from Forever 21, Dress from Macys, Belt from Target, Necklace from Tarina Tarantino, shoes from Steve Madden (the heel has crystals all over it, sorry I don’t have a good shot of them!).
Sunday was pretty slow, but still fun. We watched the student competitions and went downtown after.
Overall it was a fun weekend, but I’m glad to be going home. I am so exhausted and really looking forward to getting back into working out again (for two weeks, until I’m off on another adventure again!)
Talk to you soon :)
