It’s been 5 days and I’m still exhausted and recovering from Fan Expo Canada. It was an amazing 4 day weekend of geekery at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre! This was the first year that Fan Expo took over the ENTIRE building. The main part of the convention was in the South building. The North building held the Sports Expo and all the celebrities. It was insanely busy everywhere in the buildings. Apparently they had over 100,000 fans visit over the weekend!
I was able to meet a few Iggles and twitter friends which was great! If I wasn’t at my table when you came by or if you stopped by my table and didn’t say anything, let me know! Either way I handed out tons of IGGPPC postcards and after talking to lots of girls and guys about our community, I know that I found a few more members!
This was my table in Artist Alley where I was selling my Sparklegirl products:
I had IGGPPC postcards and business cards! On Saturday and Sunday I also had a bowl of candy which seemed to disappear very quickly!
And if I wasn’t at my table, I was either hanging out with Doctors, stalking celebrities or taking photos at the Lego booth.
Saturday was the busiest day of the convention, though Friday seemed pretty close. I met my first Iggle on Saturday!
After the show Saturday night, we found a Tardis in the middle of a field behind the convention centre.
There were some seriously awesome cosplays this year! These are just some of the pictures I took. I uploaded all of my pictures on my Facebook page.
It was such a fun weekend, but it flew by too quickly! Fan Expo Canada is always bittersweet for me. It’s always been the last comic convention I attend every year. I’m already looking forward to the 2014 convention season!
If you stopped by my table, thanks and it was nice meeting you!
