I let Natasha get a little fresh with me later in the day… Woo hoo!!
Had to ask the poor guy: “How many times have you been asked if you are a bit short to be a Stormtrooper today?” Totally worth it to almost get punched by the guy. Managed to avoid it and take a pic instead.
Bonus WonderCon content:
Managed to snap a couple of pics of the Cast of the upcoming Godzilla (2014) movie at the Boom! Booth. That’s Andy Serkis on the far left and right smack in the middle is none other than Mr. Gary Freakin OLDMAN himself! In the presence of greatness. Missed getting in line to meet and greet him, but it’s probably for the best because I probably would have asked him to quote the “What do you mean ‘Everyone’” line from Leon: The Professional and pray that he scream out, “EVVVEEEERRRYYYYOOOOONNNNNEEEEE!!!!!!!!!”
Got to meet a great artist who I have followed since I was a boy: Sergio Aragones, creator of Groo. I got my first Groo comic when I was a young lad and it was the start of a great read and love for comic artwork ever since. It was an absolute treat and honor to meet the artist and let him know what his art meant to me. Even got to buy a collection of his comics and he signed it for me along with a quick sketch.
A true artist and fellow countryman. Highlight of my day at WonderCon.
Got only one real, good pic of cosplayers in action at WonderCon 2014 today: These lovely ladies as the Power Puff Girls.
I had a MASSIVE brain fart and forgot to charge up the DSLR and bring it with and I was only there today (Sat.). SO MANY awesome cosplayers. It would have been a blast to get pics of as many as possible. Gonna have to wait till ComiCon this summer.
Ellie and Carl + Rory and Amy (Up + Doctor Who)
And then the sad realization that they’re even more alike now.
INHUMAN WAILS OF PAIN AND SUFFERING
I swear to all that is unholy, I will punch Moffatt in the neck for all those feels he made me go through. Grrrr….
