Sorry, in times like these, my back gains a voice of its own. I’m pretty sure that buying advance tickets should mean that you don’t have to wade through three line-ups in 90 minutes just to get through the main door.
Anyway, I’ve just got back from a long day pacing the aisles of Fan Expo Vancouver, checking out the shiny merchandise and trying not to gawp too much at the cosplay (pretty sure I failed). It’s always a strange mixture of feelings, being jammed in with a mixed crowd of average Joes and Super Heroes/Villains/Animals/Robots. It’s so busy, and everything is so focused on the price tags, that it’s very easy to let cynicism overtake as the day’s main emotion. However, what saves it is the subject. Actually, it’s the people and their love for the subject. What Fan Expo gives you – me – is a weekend of pure relief, from not resisting the urge to talk about the colour scheme of an X-Wing or comment on the merits of the ninth Doctor. Really, I’m not in the same league of geekdom/nerdvana as many of today’s willfully obsessed attendees, but it was such a pleasure to absorb their enthusiasm for a short while.
So, here’s a collection of tasty snaps from my camera. Matt will have plenty to add here, so watch this space!
More after the jump!
