Montreal Comiccon 2014 Edition by Critical Miss...
this year was crazy. Lots of cool stuff, great costumes and fun panels. First off my hubby Retro Joad and I had two panels that we were presenting. Cosplay on a Budget and Improvise your way to great Cosplay. Both went really well and we got some great feedback. Aside from our own panels, we got the opportunity to catch a few of the stars that were in attendance that weekend.
The first we saw was Sir Patrick Stewart's panel, and it was outstanding. He was left to his own devices to answer the questions of the two lineups in front of him, and he did so admirably. And I do have to give kudos to the audience members asking some great questions. It was exhilarating to hear him speak in person. We got to hear about saucy tales on the X-men set as well as heartwarming stories of TNG to his favourite thing about Montreal, which turned out to be a croissant at a little cafe just up from the X-men set, that had chocolate dipping sauce on the side. Delicious.
I managed to catch the end of Stephen Amell's panel, and you can really tell how much he appreciates his fans. He was easy going and took questions as much as he could.
The final panel I was able to get into was Karl Urban and boy was that worth it. He is really charming and funny. He told us about practical jokes that he fell right into to questions about his short lived series Almost Human (which I definitely want to watch now). He made it feel like we were hanging out with him in his living room, telling us stories and I could have listened to him for a lot longer.
The dealer was packed, sometimes quite difficult to make our way through the hall, however we still managed to make our way around artist alley to find some wonderful artists showing off what they can do. And as always, I came away with a couple of choice items, a wonderful Harley print and a pair of Batleth earrings.
Throughout the rest of the convention, we saw some fantastic cosplayers and costumes. Always a joy to see what people have created and how they bring these characters to life. If you do see yourself in any of the photos, please comment and we will update with your credit.
