If you follow our Facebook page, you have probably seen that we have been hitting the Con (comic conventions, that is) scene pretty hard. We've been having a blast doing it and have even introduced a few new mascots along with our appearance! Our Capes and Crowns Dinosaurs have been quite a hit, and we intend to continue to introduce new characters that these large, lovable guys (and girls) cosplay.
This Spring, we are incredibly excited to announce that we are once again bringing the dinos back from extinction and will be attending Wizard World in Portland, Oregon- April 13-15!
Aside from us having our giant, friendly t-rexes with us, there will be lots to do and see!
If you have never been to a comic convention before, this is the one to go to. Lots of comic artists from around the country will be in attendance, there will be endless amounts of vendors selling their own fandom art, and did I mention TONS of celebrities?
Yes, lots of people you might recognize. People such as Jason Momoa from Justice League (and Game of Thrones, and...a lot more haha) Ian Somerhalder from the Vampire Diaries, Bonnie Wright from Harry Potter, Sebastian Stan from Captain America, Ezra Miller from the Justice League, and there are tons more listed on their website! People from every fandom should be here, because Wizard World has your favorite people! From Superheroes, to vampires, to wizards, and even our Shire lovers who know there is only one ring to rule them all. You can check out their complete guest list here.

We have been waiting a long time to post this. Almost two months, to be exact. It was on December 15th, 2017 that we had the honor of meeting little Patrick.
Born at 26 weeks on December 1 and weighing in at an impossible 1 lb and 15 ounces, this little guy has beat odd after odd.
As the doors to the NICU at PeaceHealth West in Vancouver opened, we knew that this would be one of more difficult NICU sessions. It's hard to imagine anything that small, but especially a person. How can one who is so tiny, fight so hard?
As we walked down the hallway with Patrick's mother, Sarah and his Grandmother, we noticed all of the signs that lined the room with different warnings and instructions for care of these tiny little fighters. When we got to Patrick's room, a beautiful harp being played by a volunteer echoed through the hallways. Music therapy is a very common occurrence in a NICU, and is always so calming in a stressful situation for both babies and their parents.
Walking into the room was a bit overwhelming. When you walked in, there was a large completely enclosed bassinet, with the tiniest little thing that you'd ever laid eyes on inside of it. It was hard to believe that a baby was inside.
As we spent time in Patrick's room, we met one of PJ's nurses and observed as she performed a few routine tasks. Watching how delicate everything was with him was unreal, and amazing.
We are ecstatic to report that at just over two months old, Patrick will be going home this week! We will be covering his discharge from his long fight at the hospital as he goes home where he belongs.
Stay tuned, this is only beginning of this amazing little fighter's story!
