I’ve decided to do an initial post of my Batman Collection haul idea, starting with the things I received for my birthday and what I picked up at con. If you like this post, let me know! I plan to follow up with a collection haul post for the month of September as well. Here we go!

con1

My VIP badge for Wizard World Chicago. Ben McKenzie, who plays Detective James Gordon in the Fox TV show “Gotham”

con2

Autograph from Ben McKenzie. I also have a photo of myself with him, as well as a dual photo of myself with him and Sean Pertwee, but I don’t have a good picture of that picture, so I’ll save it for my Wandering NerdGirl blog haha.

Speaking of Sean Pertwee..

con3

Seriously one of the coolest actors I’ve met. I love him in so much more, but obviously I needed a photo of him as Alfred – or “00-Alfred”, as he signed it.

con11

Picked up the DC Collectibles replica Detective badge of James Gordon from Gotham. I wanted it anyway, seemed fitting to get it on the trip.

con4

Another Batman related actor I had the pleasure of meeting was Adrienne Barbeau. Again, someone I loved for so much more, but HAD TO get her autograph on something Catwoman, since she voiced her in the Animated Series.

con7

I picked up this gorgeous Poison Ivy print from artist Greg Horn at con. Absolutely loved it and his art in general.

con10

I bought this Batman cover replica print and had Neal Adams sign it for me – something I’ve wanted to do for so long!

con12

I first heard about Travis Langley in the documentary “Legends of the Knight”, and I’ve wanted his book, “Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight”, for a while. I love Batman, I love Psychology, and I love this book so far!

con6

Batman Returns Catwoman Kenner figure I’ve wanted for some time.

con5

Final con related pick up – this Bleacher Creature Harley Quinn plush I’ve been wanting for a while.

Alright, now that we have that hurdle out of the way, let’s show a few of my beloved birthday gifts!

con15

These were from my mom, and I technically had them for a little while before my birthday, but still. Batman, Robin, and Batgirl from the 60’s Batman television show.

con14

Assorted goodies from my best friend.

con13

Badass Harley Quinn and Batman umbrella from my brother.

con8

Harley Quinn goodies from my lovely Skylar, all the way in Washington right now

con9

Finally, my beloved Harley Quinn Mopeez plush, a gift from my office manager. I ADORE HER SO MUCH. LOOK AT THAT CUTE LITTLE FACE! Ugh. Adorable.

Well, there you have it! What did you think? Any details you’d like added? Want to see more posts like this? Let me know in the comments!

BATMAN2

Everyone that knows me, knows that I am a Batman obsessed weirdo with a collection that is constantly growing. I’ve loved Batman since I was a little kid, and my passion has grown exponentially from there. Comics, movies, collectables, miscellaneous memorabilia… I love it all. When I was two months shy of turning two years old, Batman Returns was about to hit theaters, and I was ecstatic. My mom took my brother and I to the theater early to see it, and I could barely contain my excitement. Unfortunately, two year olds plus way too much energy beforehand PLUS sitting in a dark theater equaled me passing out in the middle, which broke my little heart. I did get to see it, and my mom bought it for me when it came out (a big deal, since we didn’t have much money at that time.) And, as shown above, Catwoman made quite an impression on me. She was my favorite for the longest time, and I had a few cool Catwoman and Batman toys. I still remember how that costume and mask felt.

Granted, if I would have been wiser when I was younger, I’d have a fortune in amazing older Batman stuff. But since I hadn’t thought of it as stuff I’d be collecting as I got older, I didn’t keep it all, or some was damaged beyond any point of keeping it. A few things made it with me to adulthood, at least. But I shake my head at the things I’ve lost.

BATMAN1

Fast forward to now. I’m constantly expanding my knowledge of the DC Universe, but more specifically Batman oriented things. I collect a variety of memorabilia, from statues and collector items, to action figures, to miscellaneous random finds. If it’s Batman, it is probably on my list of things to get. (Seriously. My Amazon Wishlist is INSANE.) Friends and coworkers are always on the lookout for items I may have missed, or just random Batman oriented gifts. You should see the neat stuff I get from Six Flags St Louis.

At the moment, I’m trying to document my collection in an album on my personal Facebook page. I started doing this just with new items I received of various nerdy things, but then separated those into two categories, giving Batman his own album. Then, I decided I’d start taking individual photos (or mostly individual photos) of the rest of my collection, with the thought in mind that this would be beneficial for myself in tracking what I have, as well as for friends and family gift shopping for me.

Until, that is, I learned there was a Guinness Book of World Records holder for largest Batman collection. Kevin Silva of Indianapolis holds the record at 2,554 pieces. His collection is AMAZING. I would be that fan that falls to her knees in tears if I saw it in person. He’s inspired me to make my collection so impressive. And, hopefully, it can even surpass his someday.

So, I’m going to begin taking inventory of exactly what I have, with photos and spreadsheets and documentation to really prove what I have. And some day, I will have a worthy collection as awesome as Kevin Silva does. He seems like one awesome guy!

Anyway, I may eventually post some of the collection on here, maybe a page up there near my Bio or something. Or, I could just link you to my on Facebook profile. Who knows?

Sean Patrick Flanery REMEMBERS ME FROM WHEN WE MET. He's such a huge inspiration to me, and a gal can't deny he's rather easy on the eyes. Seeing him is always wonderful. Also, he ruined my favorite Boondock Saints shirt for wearing, since he signed it lol.

David Della Rocco... Can't deny how much I love this man, either. Him and Sean are two of my favorite people I've ever had the privilege of meeting.

Can't forget the AMAZINGNESS which is Sammy and her husband, artist Tommy Castillo - who donated SEVEN SIGNED PRINTS of his art to my Legends of the Knight charity screening for MDA. I collect his art, so this was a huge deal to me. It took everything inside of me not to cry on the spot.
