Fan Expo

Last year, we saw the line up to get in, and thought there was no way it would happen, so we simply photogrpahed those in the line. This year, tickets were purchased ahead of time to avoid this problem.
After walking past the suckers in line this year, we got to the front, only to be told that WE were the suckers, cause all those in the line DID have tickets! How stupid was that. We went from Bremer Blvd, up Lower Simcoe St, west on Front, and basically back south near the entrance of the CN Tower. But, that wasn't all, as once in side, we snaked into a series of S lines, before reaching the entrance, where we lined up to get in again! During all this, those that had no tickets were in a different line, which was only about 1/2 the length of the Convention Centre, and watched as they went by us, in a single line, directly to the ticket booth, and into the show! Great idea to pay ahead of time, and get screwed for doing so!

One in the show, I was amazed at how busy it was. Everyone was packed into one hall, circling the aisles, pushed by those behind you. But, in that crowd were lots of dressed up characters.

There were lots of stars attending the show, including Dean Stockwell, from BSG, Quantum Leap, and many other tv shows and movies;

Michael Dorn, who was famous for playing Worf on Star Trek, the Next Generation;

Tahmoh Penikett from BSG;

Lance Henriksen from Terminator, the Alien franchise, and X-Files/Millennium;

And Summer Glau, most famous to me for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

There were lots of cool costumes, especially those with contacts;

Various Batman Characters;

A Big Sexy Comics girl;

Star Trek fans;

and even Jesus got a wristband to attend!

There were also lots of models around too, including the Tru Blood Girls,

Including a lovely woman providing info on BlackBerry's

And the Tron girls!

A girl we last saw at the Pillow Fight was also taking in the show!

And no Fan Show would be complete without some members from the 501st Legion.
