Fan Expo 2016 Highlights

542-fan_expo_shieldFan Expo is a great comic book and science fiction convention that happens the last weekend of summer every year in Toronto. It is always a lot of fun dressing up in cosplay outfits, attending panels, meeting celebrities, getting comics autographed, and buying some new collectibles. Here are some the highlights from last weekend’s event.

ninth-doctor

This is my family in  our Doctor Who cosplay finest. I am dressed up as the 9th Doctor, my son is The Empty Child, and my daughter is a gender-bent version of the 11th Doctor. Thanks to the Doctor Who Society for letting us pose with a Dalek!

alex-kingston

We attended the Alex Kingston panel. She plays River Song on Doctor Who and was an absolute pleasure to watch. She told some great stories and interacted with the crowd in personal ways.

2nd-doctor

Normally I just go for one day, but this year I bought a deluxe weekend pass and attended all four days. That meant four different costumes. Here is my take on the 2nd Doctor. One person recognized me and commented on my costume. That’s a cosplay win! Although, I think I can improve on this one in the future.

autographs

Klaus Janson autographed a Star Trek comic for me and Clay Mann autographed my TPB of Lady Bullesye from Daredevil.

tim-sale-autograph

Daredevil Yellow is one of my all-time favourite books. And I got Tim Sale to autograph it. Amazing!

daredevil-panel

Speaking of Daredevil. This panel with the actors who play Daredevil and Foggy in the television series was incredible. It was moderated by Joe Quesada as well.

daleks-and-whovians

Here we are again in Doctor Who cosplay. This time I am the 10th Doctor and my kids are Rory and Amy Pond. Next time, I shall have to try cosplaying the 11th Doctor for a more cohesive family cosplay. Still, I love this shot!

dw-and-tmnt

I couldn’t resist getting my picture with my favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle either.

stan-lee

Stan Lee was incredible. He was warm-hearted and hilarious. Just as I would have thought. I am so glad I got to see him in his last round of conventions.

tardis-10-and-companions

Here we are again. Our Tardis seems to have shrunk.

william-shatner

I am glad I got to see the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner, as well. It was a nice way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek.

Of course, I had to dress for the occasion.

Live long and prosper!

That’s the highlights of this year’s Fan Expo. I can’t wait to do it again next year!
