Secondly, I need to thank my friend H, whom I met through Ladies Comic Book Night at Comic Book Addiction. I found CBA back in March when I went to the much smaller Toronto convention, and discovered that CBA was the only comic store that knew what Princeless was. This fateful encounter ended up at the photo ops at Fan Expo, where the wonderful and beautiful H invited my to participate in her The Walking Dead photo ops with Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun and Michael Rooker. As much as I loved the opportunity itself, I will absolutely treasure the hilarity during the almost two hours spent waiting in line.
Other celebrity highlights include going to get lemonade and meeting a werewolf and then meeting Kris Holden-Ried again later with Trisha (and getting a much better picture) and then finding out that an old friend is one of the people responsible for Captain Canuck, which Kris Holden-Ried is voicing.
We also got to meet Linda Hamilton, who is absolutely beautiful and has great taste in jewelry. I asked her if she still enjoyed acting and she said she adored it and that even the bad experiences are wonderful because of how much she loves her job.
Other celebrity sightings included Max Brooks, Ron Perlman, George Takei, Stan Lee, Shawn and Aaron Ashmore, Zachary Quinto, Michael Biehn and more.
I failed to meet Gina Torres even though she walked inches in front of me (gods she's a stunning woman). My husband was disappointed in my failure, but alas. I did end up in the the right place at the right time when she went up to see Nichelle Nichols. Seeing them both together was an incredible, awe inspiring moment.
These are a few of my favourites:
