Space City Comic Con – Saturday and Sunday Coverage
Scoutfather and Hunterdaughter
This Scottish lord had an awesome digiridoo and he could play it too!
What you packin' Cap'n?
Taking a shot of an assassin taking a shot of a snow trooper.
I ran into some trouble. Imperial guards are not to be trifled with. And I tend to trifle.
But I found a new ally! He can get the job done with those flipper-hands!
Wolf-Jedi was actually a pretty nice guy.
Lightsaber class was awesome.
This kid was having the time of his life!
The Force was strong at SCCC!
Admiral and his science officer.
Daddies gotta dad.
501st booth is always fun.
It just got real!
Samurai Vader - this costume was impressive. Most impressive.
I don't want to meet this guy in a dark alley!
Amy Pond! I asked, but she hadn't met Karen Gillan yet.
Baby werewolf and satyr. Aww, how freakishly adorable.
Neo and Trinity!
What con would be complete without rollerskating girls?
Fandom vehicles galore!
The Mach 5 was freaking sweet.
This album might be a little Star Wars-heavy.
Spider-Man (Corey Cormona) and Gwen
This kids totally hammed it up, their mom (dressed as Jubilee) totally hid.
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy with a vine whip!
I have taken these Battlepods for a spin a couple times.
His face was animated! The mouth would open and the eyebrows would go down and it was WICKED!
Harry Potter fans are called Scarheads now, they told me.
We didn't have a huge statue of Hulk-buster armor, this was the closest thing we had.
When you need to kill everything in the room, but not blow up the room, Ultrasabers.
They were selling fake IDs there!
Velma and Daphne were crushing it.
Back at Space City Comic Con on Saturday and Sunday. Space City Sabers was teaching lightsaber classes on Saturday, so there was much to do, but I managed to get some decent shots and see some of the con!
Saturday was HOT, in more ways than one. There were TONS of celebrities on hand, including most of the Star Trek Voyager folks and William Shatner, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvil (the Ponds from Dr. Who, Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy), Manu Bennett (Deathstroke from Arrow), Bridget Regan (Legend of the Seeker), voice actors like Elias Toufexis (Adam Jensen – Deus Ex, acting in Bitten, in the upcoming “The Expanse”), Miltos Yerolemou (sword dancer from Game of Thrones), and some lovely cosplayers like Mariedoll and Leanna Vamp!
But the thing I enjoyed most about the con was the great atmosphere. It felt like most people were just excited to be there and see all the cool stuff. By now I know a lot of folks that help out at the cons, that go to cons regularly, that cosplay at cons, so its always fun to see them and what they have come up with.
Sunday there was more of the same but with the laid-back ease that comes with the third day of the con, mixed with the desperation that comes when everyone knows that they have to go back to the real world in a day. Can’t wait for the next one!
