This is the surprise I was talking about last night! I’m headed to Comic-Con Minneapolis Minnesota! If you didn’t already know Comic-Con is put on by Wizard World in 28 locations around the US. http://www.wizardworld.com/ People come from all around to see stars from movies and TV, Artists, Cosplayers, and Fan Communities. The shopping experience is amazing! You can find everything from Pikachu earrings ( I bought a pair last year ) to Dalek figurines made of nuts and bolts. Lego figures to vintage comic books. Then there is the costumes people wear 😀 Last year I wore a Tardis A-Line dress from ThinkGeek.com http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/193c/?srp=2 If you think you have a really good costume you can enter the costume contest, the prizes are Best Female Hero, Best Male Hero, Best Female Villain, Best Male Villian, Best Group , Fan Favorite, and Best In Show. I might enter with my homemade Pokemon Black and White Avatar ( Hilda ) costume. More on that later. Back to the stars, the people who I am going to meet are…
Michael Rooker– Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy
Kevin Conroy– The voice of Batman in several television shows and video games
Sylvestor McCoy– The 7th Doctor, and Radagast in The Hobbit Trilogy
Kristy Swanson– Buffy in the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Eddie McClintock– Special Agent Tim “Sully” Sullivan in Bones
James and Oliver Phelps– George and Fred Weasley in the Harry Potter Series
Are any of you going? Come say hi! I’d really like to know if anyone who is going saw this. Don’t be shy!!! I’ll be there on Saturday and Sunday.
