I know it is a tad cliche, especially for photographers, but I wanted to share with all of you the top five Stephanie Beach Photography posts of 2013. Continue reading
As some of you may already know, Dave and I went to LA last week. It was a short trip, we left very early Thursday morning and came home very early Monday morning, and when I say early, I mean like 1am and 3am, respectively. We spent one day at the WB Studios and then headed down to Anaheim for BLIZZCON!!!
Blizzcon is a gaming convention put on by Blizzard. It revolves around their three main titles, the Warcraft Series (including World of Warcraft), Starcraft and Diablo. This year they also introduced Hearthstone (currently in Beta) and Heroes of the Storm (currently not released). The entire trip was Dave’s early and belated birthday present (early as we bought the tickets back in April before his birthday and belated as we went on the trip after his birthday). But the trip was just as much fun for me (shh don’t tell him). I will be blogging about the trip in more detail in the coming weeks, but for now I am going to blog about meeting two of the awesome people we follow online: Husky and Rosanna Pansino (aka Ro).
Husky is a Starcraft caster and Dave has been watching him for quite some time. I started watching him shortly after Dave as Husky is actually really funny and super excitable, which is a fantastic trait as a caster. Seriously, go watch him and keep an ear out for his overlord sound – hilariously awesome!!
Ro is the host of Nerdy Nummies. She is adorable and tiny and I love making baked goods from her show (including Burger Cupcakes that will be posted later this week).
When we heard they were both going to be at Blizzcon, we were super excited thinking we may get a glimpse of them amongst the crowds. When we got to meet them and chat with them it truly became the highlight of the whole trip. They are super nice people who didn’t seem to mind at all that we were coming up to them during the event. And to make things even better, they are just as genuinely awesome in real life as they seem on Youtube. Thanks again to both Husky and Ro for taking the time to chat with us, sign our book (and our Starcraft cross-stitch) and taking photos. You guys really did make our Blizzcon trip even more awesome than it already was!!
And yes, Dave drew the Husky Starcraft logo on the Signing Wall at Blizzcon just from a reference photo he found on his phone.
