Wizard World Chicago 2018 starts next Thursday, August 23 and runs through Sunday, August 26. With Wizard World fast approaching, I am featuring some of the many great moments I have had there.
One of the best parts of Wizard World is hanging with friends. Whether close friends or once-a-year Wizard World friends, it's always wonderful seeing friendly faces.
Aniviel certainly qualifies as a friendly face. I met Aniviel through Resistance Pro wrestling, where she performed many functions and eventually even wrestled. Of course, Aniviel is just a nickname, but that's her story to tell. Aniviel is a total sweetheart.
Back a few years, her signature move was facelicking. She would lick the face of celebrities in pictures. A bit unusual, but definitely funny, she licked many celebrity faces. Naturally, when I saw her at Wizard World, I had to ask to join that exclusive club. She was a good sport and went along with my request and thus, the iconic image was created.
Every friend you meet at Wizard World won't lick your face. Aniviel probably won't even lick your face. Still, you'll get plenty of hugs, knuckle-punches and all sorts of other friendly greetings. I always look forward to seeing old friends, almost as much as seeing the celebs (and maybe even more).
Check out WizardWorld.com for all of the info on all of their shows around the country. I have been to shows in several other cities and they are all a blast!
