It is time for more Comic Con goodness, are you ready? Today is all about the guests and the fabulous people that I met at Comic Con. The range from voice actors to geeky bloggers and photographers and even a very well-known Shakespearean actor. Take a look!
Me and Phil LaMarr (voice of Hermes from Futurama). I stood in line for about a half an hour to get Phil LaMarr’s autograph. He asked about my purple hair and I explained that I cosplayed as Leela and he told me I had kick-ass Leela shoulders (true story). I even asked him to do Hermes voice and he did (eee! I totally fangirled over that). Next year, I think my first stop is going to be the voice acting section so I can meet some of my favorite cartoon characters in real-time.
Me and Mandy (from Mandy McGee Photography). Mandy and I became friends a few months ago on twitter and I tweeted to her that I was going to be at ECCC this year. We ended up hanging out a couple times over the weekend and I found a great new friend in Seattle.
Felicia Day and Me. Can you tell I’m squeeing inside? I met Felicia Day! OMG. She was why I came to Comic Con in the first place. I’ve been following Felicia for a few years and she is a great deal of my inspiration for starting this blog. I was so excited to meet her and we even got to talk about soap.
Sir Patrick Stewart. ‘Nuff said. This was the last panel I attended before I left for the weekend and it couldn’t have been better. I mean, it’s Sir Patrick Stewart who we know as Jean-Luc Picard andProfessor X.
Chris Sarandon. Otherwise know as Prince Humperdinck from Princess Bride. He was so sweet and down-to-earth and answered all questions that were asked. I’m definitely going to take a look at more of the movies he’s been in, his great attitude peaked my interested.
Tara from The Geeky Hostess. I’ve been following Tara’s blog, The Geeky Hostess for the past year and absolutely love reading it. It’s totally up my alley with it’s geeky fashion and makeup advice and Tara is such a sweetheart in real life. I was able to attend the panel “Being Geek and Feminine,” that she was on and it was actually one of my favorites, I can’t wait to chat with her more about it.
There were so many people and panels that I wanted to attend this year, but I only got to a few. Which panels and guest were your favorite?
