I'm pretty stoked because I have never really had the time or purpose to go to toycons. I have been wanting to do cosplay ever since college, but I never really had the chance or the resources to create a bad ass costume. Although this year is a different matter. I'll definitely be there, embodying my favorite character EVER in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Comics. Come on and join the fun to see which character I'm referring to! ;D
