So i attended my first ever comic convention. Vancouver’s FAN EXPO! it was cool to meet some webcomic famous people, buy some merch without having to pay shipping costs, and getting stuff signed. Here are my observations:
1) Cos-play! it’s everywhere. All the guys dress like judge dredd which is awesome! and now that I have a daughter, all I can say about the girl-cosplayers is i really wanted to give them parkas… it was not an especially warm day, and they were not especially dressed for the weather.
2) I’m an awkward person when meeting internet celebrities! BE COOL, DANGIT.
3) I won’t ever be an attendee at a convention again, but I would love to go halfsies on a table and try to sell my stuff and just get to know other comic creators. It really gave me motivation to build some inroads into the community.
That being said! I saw Bruce Cambell and the dude who plays “Q” in startrek, so that was sweet. Also, the lego-booth was cool!
