Along with her passion for fashion, Jacky has a secret interest that not too many people know about; Comic Con.  Jacky’s fascination with this event grew from her love of comics and fandoms such as Sherlock and the Walking Dead, and was influenced by her close relationship with her father.  Jacky was excited to attend the Comic Con and FanX in Salt Lake, this video takes a look at her experiences there.

Behind The Scenes

Jacky Dominguez is actually my sister, and I thought it would be interesting to show everyone how unique and funny she is.  We were both really close to my dad who taught us to always act like ladies and to look our best, but also to be open-minded and to explore different interests and hobbies.  We had a blast filming at comic con, everyone was really fun to talk to.  I wish we would have had more time to put in all the footage we collected, so much of which was filled with clips of Jacky and her funny quirks or her funny experiences at Comic Con.  Overall, the experience was unforgettable, and we hope to attend more events like this in the future.
