Fan Expo 2012 Day 2: From John Carpenter to Kevin Smith

Jay and Silent Bob Get Old Nothing much happened for me on the second day of Fan Expo, since I used it as the day to get my autographs and photo-ops out of the way.  I initially lined up for what I thought would be a quick autograph with Levar Burton, but he was late […]

Fan Expo 2012 Day 1: Getting Acquainted on a Low-Key Day

Julie Benz If today was the only day you were going to attend Fan Expo Canada, sadly you chose one of the worst days to go. It was a very slow opening day for the Expo and I spent most of the afternoon getting acquainted with the showfloor, which featured some enjoyable elements like a Frankenweenie exhibit, […]

Fan Expo 2012: Highlights of the Convention

We are only three days away from the start of Fan Expo 2012.  It is now the third largest convention of its kind in North America (behind the San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic-Con) and it can be very easy to get overwhelmed by this very large convention. In fact, it’s probably best to […]

Fan Expo 2012 – Getting Ready 5 Months Early

This year, it is apparent more than ever that Fan Expo Canada’s rapid growth is fast making it the Canadian equivalent of the San Diego Comic-Con. It definitely seems that they are aiming for sell-out crowds at this year’s convention.  Why else would they put tickets on sale today – nearly 5 months before the […]

Fan Expo 2011 – A Photo Retrospective

Here is the gallery of all the photos I took during Fan Expo.  I had my camera out nearly the entire weekend and I would always snap a picture whenever I came across something interesting.  Hope you enjoy.

Fan Expo 2011 – Final Thoughts

This year’s Fan Expo was bit of a “make it or break it” event for me.  While I quite enjoyed my first visit to the expo in 2009, last year’s overcrowding disaster risked disillusioning me on the event.  I knew that the best way for me to properly enjoy the event was to go all […]

Fan Expo 2011 Day 4 – Final Q&As, Former Wrestlers, and a Surprise Guest

Tom Felton Q&A Potter-mania (or should it be Malfoy-mania) was present in full force during the final day of the Fan Expo.  I have observed over the entire weekend that Tom Felton was definitely one of the biggest draws of the convention, with many people (mostly female) lining up to meet Harry Potter’s nemesis. I […]

Fan Expo 2011 Day 3 – Lost Girl and Line-Ups

Lost Girl Panel Saturday is typically the busiest day at Fan Expo and it is also the single day I chose to visit for my previous two expos.  It seemed the Expo was anticipating the crowds, since we were let into the building (but not the show floor) a good half hour before opening (which also […]

Fan Expo 2011 Day 2 – A Busy Day of Q&As

Tom Felton Signing The first full day of Fan Expo was a busy one that, quite frankly, wore me out. I got up bright and early to head to the convention centre and I managed to get in quite prompt. I wasn’t on the showfloor as much today as I was yesterday, however I was […]

Fan Expo 2011 Day 1 – Line-up Issues and Unleashing my Inner Trekkie

Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Marina Sirtis greets fans. While only half a day, I have to say that today turned out to be an enjoyable start to the Fan Expo.  However, it did not start out that way.  In a continuing example of the bad organization that plagues the convention, the lines to get in were […]
