It's April, It's Chicago, so what better way to welcome SWC to our fair city but with SNOW!!! That's right, driving into the city today we got blasted with the white stuff, but made it downtown in plenty of time, and still found parking in the MP parking garage.

Today was my most autograph sessions yet, 10, but only 3 photo-ops. My first autograph wasn't until 11:20, so I went and got the cup for the day, which was Kylo Ren. Had Annabelle Davis sign my "The Force Awakens" poster, then headed to the photo-op area to get our pic with Joonas Suotamo at noon. My Paul Kasey autograph was at 12:10, and he signed my "Rogue One" poster, then had the "Resistance" group photo-op at 1:00. We then walked around until 3:00 when I had my Suzie McGrath autograph, she signed my "Resistance" poster. Then it was back to the photo-op area for my Ahmed Best pic at 3:40. Once that was done, it was back to the autograph area to get Penny McCarthy's signature, I just had her sign one of the photos at her table. Then Christopher Sean, Myrna Velasco, Scott Lawrence, Bobby Moynihan, and Donald Faison all signed my "Resistance" poster. Last signature of the night was at 5:10, having Joonas Suotamo sign my "Solo" poster.

Before leaving, I got the information necessary to enter my back in the tattoo contest that was being held on Monday. I just had to email them a pic of the tattoo and tell them which category I was entering it in: Best Color, Best Black & White, or Best in Show. (You had to have gotten the tattoo at the con to be able to enter it in the last category.) So the only option for me was Best Color. They said that we would be notified that night if we made the competition. After that, we left and got some dinner.

We got back to Barry's house and watched some T.V. for a bit. It was getting later and later, and I was beginning to think that I didn't make it, until the email finally came in that I had! So needless to say I went to bed extremely excited about the next, and final day's possibilities.
