Comic Con 2013Friday, May 10, 2013
Okay, I promised some Calgary Comic Con related photos and what not, so here they are. I was fortunate enough to attend with my brother and cousins (including the other half of this blog, Kurtis), and also fortunate enough to take (ridiculously overpriced but 100% worth it) photos with some of my favourite actors and see some pretty neat costumes. Not to mention I made 2 second eye contact with John Rhys-Davies while he was riding in a golf cart. And saw Dizzy and Johnny Rico from the critically acclaimed 90s movie StarShip Troopers (it's a personal favourite). Oh, and my brother had his 15 seconds of fame with his self-made Minecraft zombie costume. Want another fun fact? Of course you do. I bought a Totoro fluffy onesie. Aaaand when the fire alarm in our building went off, guess who was standing on the sidewalk at 7 AM with a Totoro onesie on while firemen scoured the building? Me.
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being "Disneyland fun", I'd say the Calgary Comic Con was an 11. In other words, if you are ever contemplating going, you should probably go. There's nothing better than geeking out with a bunch of cool people in cool costumes doing cool things like LARP and playing Quidditch.
