May 2019 Exploration Update

Hello All! Time for my monthly update where I take you on a tour of where I’ve been outside of the game world!

Hung out with friends at Kelly O Brian’s!

Princess Leia made an appearance at Quest Martial Art’s Academy’s ‘Spar Wars’. These guys create a safe environment for those who enjoy fighting, and prompt students to better themselves. The teachers are witty, funny, caring and down to earth, so know that you or your child/teenager will be getting excellent care.

Headed out to Vernon on the weekend for May the 4th Celebrations, Vernon hosted a Comic-Con! Ran into the 501st, and immediately asked Vader if it was a lady under there, and to my pleasant surprise, a lady’s voice replied! I met her last year, there is only one lady who troops as Darth Vader, the force truly is strong with this one! Coupled with her husband dressed as Boba Fett, the two make an intimidating and awe inspiring moment for those who are brave enough to face the Dark lord.

Looking forward to working with these guys in the future, we’ve got a plan cooking up I hope you’ll all enjoy, so stay tuned!

Stopped by Munin’s with the RWBY group for a specialty crafted coffee beer (SHHH don’t tell Uncle Crow!) then into Safeway to grab the makings of a pizza, a vegi platter and an already made Hawaiin pizza !

Headed out with the RAOC group a couple times this month to the Kelowna General Hospital, where we set out to provide special moments to children, and anyone else who we could make smile!

Volunteered with the New Vintage Theater to find strange and unusual cuttings a new home outside the production ‘Little Shop of Horrors‘! Totally a recommended to see, I hope to see more amazing productions from this team!!! Side note: I LOVE 1950’s outfit styles!!

Went out on a date to see End Game at Cineplex Studios! Finally caught up!

Took a panorama of Kelowna from the Southeast side – SO MUCH GREEN!!!!

Watched some demolition going on in downtown Kelowna.

Stopped by A&W for burgers.

Cineplex Cinemas

Orchard Plaza 160-1876 Cooper Rd, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9N6

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

This theater underwent a massively needed upgrade a few years back, making it able to compete with the others in town, one of my favorite perks being the reclining seats! I would have given 5 stars, however, when we walked out after the show, I was appalled to see a half inch layer of popcorn all over the lobby floor. I used to go to movies quite regularly at the Xtreme Theater in West Kelowna, and I never had to wade through popcorn to get to the front door.

Riviera Village Green Hotel Complex

4801 27 St, Vernon, BC V1T 4Z1

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

As this location hosted the Vernon Comic-con, my travels took me here! Surprisingly, there are a lot of conference rooms tucked into the bottom floor of this tiny building, allowing a small convention to run smoothly. The front overhang of this building is stood on massive stone pillars that make excellent backdrops! As for the hotel itself however, I am unaware of it’s services.

Artists & Vendors I Met at the Vernon Comic-con 2019

Well I thought I’d start doing a little something different then just filing all those business cards away for when I need them next! I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I’m also pretty broke when I go to these things, and end up having to buy anything I wanted after the fact, so I always walk out with a little stack of business cards and a plan! However, I don’t want to hog all these awesome people to myself, so I’ll share my finds with you πŸ™‚ You’re welcome!

A comic based off our fights to protect Canada’s natural habitat, looks like it will be an interesting read!

501st Legion

Spoiler alert!!!! Darth Vader is a lady! Well, at least the one here is πŸ˜‰ She’s a force to be reckoned with, joined by her husband in an incredible replica of the Boba Fett costume! I hope to work more with these people in the future, so stay tuned for that!
