Fan Expo Vancouver 2013

Michael Rooker

Day one of Fan Expo Vancouver was crazy. Tons of great costumes and celebrities invaded the Vancouver Convention Centre. Highlights included Michael Rooker (Merle from the Walking Dead), Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings), Stan Lee’s awesome Q&A (he got a standing ovation when he came out), David Prowse (Darth Vader) and my personal favorite, Elvira. Here’s my huge gallery of photos from the day

And then this happened (cue my inner fanboy):

Elvira and me (!)

I was taking a pretty close up photo of Star Trek’s Uhura, Nichelle Nichols and she kind of punked me…as I was framing the shot, she said under her breath “Get that camera out of my face!” and I pulled back from the viewfinder and she just smiled at me and said she was kidding.

    With Vancouver being always talked about as a “no fun” city, it’s great to see you capture the joyous spirit of us geeks/nerds at this much needed event!
