Wizard World's Philly Comic-Con was this weekend. I went 3 of the 4 days, and I'm beat tired. Did anybody else go?
(above is a screencap from the documentary "To Be Takei". Very funny, moving, and ultimately a great film, which was screened Saturday morning)
It was a ton of fun. Here's some highlights!
First off, Eddie McClintock does NOT like to sit behind a table during Q&A. He went (as he called it) Phil Donahue and got out in the crowd for the Q&A. He is the most appreciative and open celebrity I think I've ever seen at a con. I didn't get all starstruck around him or any of the others, but he's a dude I really would consider paying $$ for the photo op or what have you.
Nathan Fillion & Alan Tudyk Q&A: mostly talked about Firefly, were (of course) hilarious. Alan had a random bag of swag from all his various projects (mugs from production, script pages, etc) that he signed and gave to fans who asked questions. Nate gave out signed rating cards for "How Was Your Meeting With Nathan Fillion" experience.
Speaking of McClintock, he crashed the Fillion/Tudyk panel as a drunken redneck electrician. (I don't have a photo of him in the baseball cap showing off buttcrack, but you can imagine...)
Curtis Armstrong and Brian Tochi from Revenge of the Nerds actually did a great Q&A. Those guys have been working actors for decades, with Brian being a child actor who was actually on an original series episode of Star Trek!
The Whovians were in full force:
Including the Capaldi Doctor and almost all other Doctors represented:
I am the Brigadier in combat black outfit, and was happy to be the only guy posing with the ladies... and the tin dog.
The best had to be Madame du Pompadour: she made the dress herself!
Oh, and my three cosplay outfits:
Day 1 = generic Bond Villain (complete with evil cat, Mr. Fang...).
Day 2: Brigadier Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.
Day 3 = aging Jimmy Olsen. (seen below being clueless about Clark's secret identity, despite it being obvious...DUH!)
