WonderCon 2011 went AMAZINGLY!!!!!
I got to meet a bunch of amazing artists and people! I showed up pretty early with my buddy James and ended up getting him in for free! It definitely started off with a laugh. As per tradition for the past couple years, Artist Alley is hit first since it gets packed the most.
Adam Hughes!!! He was super awesome and was doing sketches, I managed to get a sketch and pic with him. (pictured above) If you don't know who he is, look him up, his artwork is incredible!
Greg Horn was next (pictured above with Galactus hat) He was way cool and he signed my book and took a pic with James and myself. We both geeked out a bit over his awesome artwork.
Jim Silke was way cool, this man has been around for years! His pinup style is freakin' phenomenal! I highly suggest you check him out if you're into pin up artwork. I got one of his books and he was very kind to sign it and my autograph book as well.
Richard Kiel - you know him from 'Happy Gilmore' and 'The Spy Who Loved Me', he was nice, but he charges for pics and autographs (and I was on a budget) so we just said 'Hi'.
Lou Ferrigno - DUH! you all know him as THE HULK My cousin and I met him last year, and well...let's just say he's kinda grumpy. He might be hecka cool outside conventions, but my second encounter with him, was basically the same as the first. But at least I have a funny story to tell people.
Peter Mayhew - CHEWBACCA!!!!! What else needs to be said?
Finally we have ELVIRA MISTRESS OF THE DARK!!!!! She looked AMAZING! James and I trolled about till she arrived and when she did, we made a mad dash for her table and took tons of pics paparazzi style. No joke, we were about 1ft away from her. She's been around for a long while, but still looks bangin'. HOLLER HOLLER HOLLER!!!!
All and all, I had a great time, we chatted with the girls at the Suicide Girls table, counted 8 Pikachus, 4 Batman, 3 Jokers, 2 Captain Americas, I say 2 Adventure Time costumes, and an army of Storm Troopers. Also we took pics with a princess and Tinkerbell, R2D2 and took pics of some Gundam figures and saw a 5 minute trailer of the upcoming 'Green Lantern' movie. It looks siq as fuq!~
Hopefully next year is just as awesome as these last 3 that I've attended.
