So this previous weekend I attended my very first Comic Con. And it was amazing. Seeing everyone's outfits and how much work they put into them was awesome (tho made mine look like crap but o well). The celebrities for this event were Chloe Dykstra from Heroes of Cosplay, the 3 leads of Being Human (US), and Kelly Hu from Arrow. There was also Kevin Maquire, and Fabian Nicieza.
Some of the panels they had (that i went to) were on DC vs Marvel movies, Doctor Who, Morality of Superman to name a few. They also had auditions for Viva La Cosplay which is a youtube show on cosplay and for AMPS. I acutally auditioned for AMPS which that is about 5 psychics. 4 of those are trying to reawaken their powers. Pretty much think Prof. X and his X Men. Another panel was on Being Human. I nearly died of laughter thanks to Sam Witwer, Sam Huntington and Megan Rath. Their answers to our (the audience) questions were great. Though somehow all went back to the topic of cereal (don't ask long story).
For the costume department people made great costumes (as stated above). Examples are Hawkgirl with retractable wings, Scarlet Witch (classic not movie), Black Widow, Iron Man, War Machine, a ton of Deadpools and some Assassins (most of those Assassins were Ezio Auditore da Firenze). I myself was one (modern Assassin not Ezio) and I seemed to be the only one with a hidden blade oddly enough. Some of the Deadpools actually didn't realize their creator (Fabian Nicieza for those who didn't know) was at the convention.
Speaking of Mr. Nicieza I actually caught him off guard with a question. So as some of you will know Scarlet Witch is able to hex people and make them go mad for a little bit. So what if Deadpool was hexed? What would he do? Neither myself, Scarlet Witch nor any of the Deadpools could figure it out. So we went to the Creator. Mr. Nicieza said (not quoting word for word) that Deadpool would be sane for a little bit, approximately 5 mins or so. And during that time he would realize how f***** up his life is and just cry. Along with other stuff that he didn't want to list.
