Forest City Comicon 2015
Photos/Article by: Geek Girl Wandering Dana
I attended Forest City Comicon at the Convention Centre in London, Ontario, Canada yesterday and it was epic! The event is a celebration of nerd culture and the popular culture that surrounds it.
This is FCC's second year and it has grown immensely since last year! This year they partnered with Project Play and it featured tons of costumes, vendors, panels, board games, video game tournaments and more. I had a ton of fun wandering the floor and taking snapshots of cosplayers, buying geeky merchandise to add to my Funko Pop & Alpaca collections and checking everything out!
One of the highlights for me (other than the cosplayers of course) was John Noble's panel. I was lucky to show up early and score front row seats! He's an amazing actor who's most well known for playing Walter Bishop in Fringe and Denethor in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. He was incredibly well spoken, humble and kind and had really thought out intelligent answers to the many fan questions.
It is always super awesome to see my fellow Geek Girls and there were so many in attendance including Lossien
, Evie E
, Scarlett Quinn
, Gina G.
, Natalie GxG
and Lady Di Cosplay
! I managed to find them all and get photos of all of them! They all had such fun and creative cosplays, as well as all the other amazing cosplayers I ran into there! Here are just some of my favorite photos I snapped of cosplayers and celebs (I'll be uploading lots more shortly to the Geek Girls facebook page
